With Mr B away, it couldn’t have been more perfect to spend the Valentine’s weekend with a group of fellow wedding bloggers learning calligraphy with the lovely Gemma Milly!  Hosted at the gorgeous Miss Bush Chapel, the light, bright space was decked out in more pretty than you can imagine by Sundari, AKA The Wedding Stylist – with pink paper flowers hanging from the ceiling, sparkly sequinned linen from Gilded Linens and a table laden with treats from Honeywell Bakes and pretty china from A Cup of Vintage.

Calligraphy is one of those wedding details that never fails to make me swoon, and having worked with Gemma in the past I knew this was my chance to learn from a true pro.  Armed with our pen and ink, she talked us first through the basics of making lines with our pens, onto the ‘advanced’ task of creating letters and then actual words.  I’ve never heard a room full of girls so quiet, with concentration etched on our faces we realised this is nothing like writing but a true art form!

For creative brides, Gemma is will be holding Calligraphy Workshops throughout the spring, and I’d recommend getting yourself booked in pronto!  There’s even 20% off for BLOVED readers, just enter the code INK20 at the checkout Imagine addressing your wedding invites with a perfectly calligraphed envelope, and dressing your tables with beautiful place names created by your own fair hand.

My efforts were… well, lets just say amateur at best, so I’ll definitely be leaving it to the pro’s from now on!


After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
