Every so often somebody appears on my radar who I can’t stop telling people about. No, seriously. Just the other day I was chatting to someone over lunch about a TV show we are both binging on at the moment (Peaky Blinders FYI, if you’re not watching it then I could not recommend it enough, you’re missing out a great British show with this one plus Tom Hardy’s appearance every so often makes it all the more enjoyable) and I find myself adding in, “talking of [their]* wedding, did I tell you about this company I recently discovered who do the most beautiful wedding stationery?”. This was to someone who has absolutely no interest in weddings and could not have been less interested in what I had to say, so I kept bringing it up until somebody finally paid me a little attention. I later found out that the person who finally took interest had been recommended to by someone I’d spoken to earlier on in the day just to stop me talking about it…
*No spoilers here ladies and gents!
So as nobody in my circle of work colleagues or friends really took genuine interest I figured here was the best place to enthuse about the brand. And the brand I’m waffling on about?
The gorgeous Atelier Rosemood.
A French company, Atelier Rosemood can also be found in Germany and as of this year, the UK bringing exciting new designs to the market place all created by independent graphic designers and with over 1,000 designs for various events and occasions in their repertoire they have everybody covered. One of the things I love most about the company is how it began; a lot of creative companies begin out of the discovery of a gap in the market when the founder’s been looking for something and when they can’t find it, decide to make it themselves. Well, guess what? That’s exactly the case here, so why do I love it so much when it’s a pretty common affair? Because it involves babies. That’s right, babies. And anything that involves babies I’m all over. Co-founders Hélène, Grégoire and Antoine were looking for personalised cards to announce the arrival of their bundles of joy and it was only when they couldn’t find what they were looking for that Atelier Rosemood as it’s recognised today was born.
Taking their already gorgeous designs to the next level, the brand has recently launched their new foil stamping service adding that little bit extra luxe to your wedding stationery and this is a touch I personally love. If you prefer a simpler design but are left feeling a little uninspired by it when this is THE invitation for the biggest day of your life, the addition of a metallic finish can be all that’s needed to take your design to the next level. The team use a vintage Heidelberg Press to hot mark a metal film onto each individual invitation to result in the eye-catching metallic finish that’s so on trend, and with the company giving you the choice of gold, silver or copper there’s a finish to suit every colour palette and/or theme. Then just for that extra reassurance, each piece is checked by one of the in-house gilders to double check the high quality finish and professional finish that they demand is present before it gets sent to you, and it’s that kind of attention to detail that I so love to find.
All you have to do is pick the design you like just like you would when doing any kind of online shopping, and then a online editing tool allows you to swap and change things until you’ve created a design perfect for your big day. It’s then put through a rigorous process of proofreading, visual optimisation and printing quality control to ensure that when your pieces arrive through your letterbox you’re 100% satisfied with the work. It’s so rare to still experience such an amazing dedication to customer happiness, so whenever I come across someone who has got it so spot on I just want to shout about them from the rooftops.
So not only are Atelier Rosemood’s designs to die for, their customer service is unrivalled taking all of the stress out of this part of the wedding planning process. Oh, and I didn’t mention, their prices are really reasonable for this kind of customised work!
Don’t take my word for it though, head over to their site and check out what they could do for you here. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
