We now have the photos back from the wedding and I thought you might enjoy having a look and seeing how well the stationery worked with everything else. We were really pleased with how it all came together. Thank you for everything you did. Very best wishes.

Annabel and Aaron Ross-Dix - July 2018

Sorry this is a bit delayed, I was working until late last night. I am absolutely delighted with the invitations, they look incredible. Thank you so so much, I am so happy with them. I felt quite emotional when I saw them! They are so brilliant – classy/elegant but still modern and the colours look amazing. I am very grateful and can't wait to hand them out on Saturday. Will be very special being able to hand them out in person at our engagement party and I really appreciate you working so quickly to get them finished in time. I am looking forward to arranging an appointment in January/February to organise the rest of the stationery. Thank you again! Take care of yourself and we will see you in a few months! Warmest wishes.

Tasha and Stewart - October 2018

Leanne and Ian - July 2009

Your ears may have been burning last night ... as I was gushing about how fab our invites are.

Claire and Alex Balham - August 2009

We found Lily Anna Rose to be very professional. The products were of high quality. The service we received was very personal. Claire was so very helpful throughout even with regards to any changes we made. You just don’t get this sort of service on the high street. We would thoroughly recommend this company.

Sue Imms and xx - September 2009

I just wanted to write to you to pass on my sincere thanks for the amazing invitations that you made me for my forthcoming wedding. They were exactly what I wanted and more, I have had so many people commenting on them and how beautiful they were; I hope the rest of the wedding lives up to this standard! It was great that we had the opportunity to share design ideas together, this meant the invitations were personally tailored to suit my needs and most importantly the style of the wedding. I will certainly be recommending you to any brides–to be!

Kirsty and Kier Haddow - September 2009

Claire, thank you so much for our lovely invites. Throughout the whole process you were very helpful. Even the most silly questions were not too much trouble!! The prompt email communication was excellent, and helped us considerably in making the perfect invites for our wedding. We will certainly be using Claire again for our wedding table plan and thank you letters over the next few months.

We will recommend your services to all our friends and anyone who would be interested in smart, sophisticated, invites which are priced well. All our guests have already commented on how beautiful the invites are – and most importantly how unique they are (not to mention Claire took the time to provide Spanish invites for the majority of our guests). Thanks again!!!

Carmen and Sean Carmen Macdonald - January 2010

Thank you so much for the lovely wedding stationery. I have had so many people comment on how stunning the invitations are. You provided a very efficient and professional service.

Adele Williams and Richard Kersey - February 2010

From start to finish Claire was so helpful and though never meeting in person, was able to bring all our ideas and visions to life. The wedding stationary that included, name placement cards, luggage tags for the tables and menus were all so intricately designed and elegant, we have kept them all as personal keepsakes from our special day. The wedding stationary was everything and more than we ever could of wished for and we received so many compliments from our family and friends throughout the day on how beautiful they looked. I could not praise Claire’s help and designs enough and would recommend her to anyone wishing to have that extra special touch when planning their wedding. Thank you again.

Rachel and David Harding - February 2010

Just want to say thank you for the cards, they arrived on Friday and are lovely!

Jane and David Knowles - May 2010

The stationery is truly stunning, and all those that have seen it comment on it.

Emma Watt and Iain Haddow - June 2010

Rachel and Michael Richards - July 2010

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the Order of Service.
They tried to deliver them last week but we were away so I have just collected them this morning! Thank you so much for everything that you have helped us with – the stationery is fab!

Lucy and Stuart Worth - August 2010

I would highly recommend Lily Anna Rose wedding stationary to anyone. The customer service we received was fantastic – Claire Harding was always at hand if we had any questions or we needed advice on the design and was very patient with us when we wanted to make changes. We received samples of wedding invitations from other wedding stationary companies but none compared to the quality of materials used and attention to detail that was put into the Lily–Anna Rose stationary. The care taken to package and protect the invitations was excellent, we will definitely be ordering further stationery from Lily Anna Rose for our wedding reception!

Jane and David Knowles - September 2010

Many thanks for sending the Save the Date cards through – they look great and we really like the envelopes.

Chris Ayres and Chris Ayres - December 2010

Hi Claire, thanks so much for the order of services – I love them! I will be in touch after our wedding with a thank you card. We are so happy with the invites that were made by Lily Anna Rose and have had so many compliments from friends and family on these. The invites were just what we were looking for–stylish and something that had the wow factor, even the envelopes look amazing! The quality of service we also received from Claire has been great and we couldn’t have asked for a better service. x

Fay and Jonathan Peters - August 2011

The Orders of Service are lovely – very classy and complement the previous stationery items really well. Thank you. Place cards fabulous – and with the lavender sprigs they look fab!. I’ll sort a photograph from the venue and send it on! Thanks for all your hard work – we’ll let you know how the day itself goes on 3rd.
We have sealed and stamped them all this evening – and even that took us the best part of 2 hours, so we can appreciate the time and effort you have expended on these! The invitations are really spectacular – very classy and definitely get a ‘wow’ response from the few privileged to have seen them to date! Best wishes. Nick & Bern MacCarthy (mother and father of the Bride).

MacCarthy and MacCarthy - November 2011

The invitations exceeded all our expectations, and have so far provided the exact reaction we were looking for. A beautiful fusion of vintage and modern, we are simply overwhelmed. Thank you so much, we’ll be in touch soon for the table plan! x

Morning Claire,
Firstly – thank you so much for sending the stationery to us it arrived yesterday.
But the real reason for my email is to say how ecstatic I am with the overall finish. They are incredible. Everything looks amazing and I know they are going to fit in perfectly. You have done them exactly as we had hoped and imagined – in fact I think they are better than I had imagined!
You have worked so hard and changed so many things with no problem at all even at the last minute! I have really valued all of your input and it has been amazing to know that if you have an idea that you think will work better you have shared it with us to make sure everything looks as good as possible.
Myself and Jason are both over the moon! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you in the future.
Thank you so much for all of your work- you really are very talented! And thank you for helping to make the run up to our big day that little bit more relaxed!
Very best wishes

Kind regards, Andry and Raj Mathero - December 2015

Hi Claire,
I posted out the first wave of invites to arrive on Christmas eve. The feedback I've been getting has been nothing but positive, and everybody loves them. 'Classy' 'elegant' and 'lovely' are the choice words. The RSVPs have been coming back thick and fast, Jens and I have decided to keep them and frame them. Some of the guests have been writing little notes which is really sweet, and the return slips lend themselves to this. They will look great on the wall of wonders in the front room.

Naomi and Jens - December 2015

Dear Claire
The invites arrived safely today!! They look AMAZING! We are so pleased with them. Thank you so much for all your efforts, ideas and patience with getting them just as we wanted. It's honestly been an easy process knowing we could trust you and your judgement on what worked and didn't!

Joanna and Karl - January 2016

Ahh Claire that's so kind of you to say thank you so much! So glad you like them, I'm just sorry there's not more of your beautiful work but everyone really was blown away with it and they loved that it all became clear the invitation then the order of service all tying in with the dress. A friend of mine has saved all your bits and bobs and put them on her side and sent me a pic I've attached it below I just loved it, she kept all the momentos from the day and you can see your work tied in beautifully.

Kerrina and Kenny Bruce - July 2017

Dear Claire,
I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you so much for those beautiful invitations you made for our wedding. I can't tell you how happy I am that we managed to get them out on time! I really appreciate your efforts to get them to us so quickly. On returning home from receiving the beautifully presented invitations in the green boxes, we immediately set to getting the invites ready for posting. But it was such an easy task as you had done all the hard work for us by putting everything together flawlessly. All we had to do was place them in their envelopes. So thank you so much. The invitations themselves are stunning. We have received so many compliments from our guests and I wish you could hear for yourself all the kind words said. I'll probably be back in touch in early June regarding table plans, menus etc. I hope you managed to have a good Easter, many thanks again

Dear Claire, 
Thank you!! We had an absolutely amazing day - the bookmarks and whole book theme, from the quotes to the table plan, were just amazing. It all looked incredible. We don't have any pictures from the photographer yet but will definitely send some over when we do get them. Thanks a million for everything, hope all is good with you!

Georgie and Akshay - August 2017

Claire has done mine and Matthew Harris wedding invites and we can't wait for our guests to see them!! Your work is amazing xx

Lyndsey and Matthew Harris - October 2017

Hi Claire Well! You truly are the most talented sausage indeed!! Just opened the box and the cards are everything we could wish for. Really beautifully done, thank you so much. Yvon thinks you're most fabulous too! BigHugZx 

Yvon and Simon John - October 2017

Just to say family and friends received their invitations today and everyone has commented on how professional and gorgeous they are, so again many thanks. Look forward to discussing the menu and table plan design with you in a couple of months time.
