TNWC South West Roadtrip Day 6: visiting the studio of Charlie Scribble
I can’t believe that I only have two days left of visiting businesses on the TNWC South West Roadtrip (Sunday is my day off with family) – it has been an incredible week so far and I hope that you’ve enjoyed reading about my adventures.
Yesterday I had a pretty chilled day, which at nearly 29 weeks pregnant I was in need of after the busy week I’ve had. I headed from the south coast of Cornwall, across the county to just outside Wadebridge too meet up with Flo from Charlie Scribble. Flo creates beautiful wedding stationery with a very distinct style that incorporates her beautiful illustrations.
Flo has a lovely studio at her home (which is utterly lovely!) and is like me, currently expecting her first baby. We sat and ate cake and chatted babies and weddings. Flo showed me some of the recent wedding commissions she’s done for couples and I even got a sneak peek at their new website (coming soon) and the photos they’ve had done to showcase their work.
What I’ve always loved about Charlie Scribble is the subtle but beautiful style of Flo’s illustrations, they are dainty and detailed, yet have that whimsical and quirky quality that only something skilfully hand drawn has. Flo creates a wide range of wedding stationery, from save the dates, invitations and rsvp cards, to on-the-day order of service’s and menus.
One of Flo’s favourite things to draw is buildings, and this is particularly distinct element of the Charlie Scribble style. Couples come to Flo requesting all manner of buildings to be illustrated for their wedding stationery, from churches to family homes, to whole townscapes and tipis. Flo’s attention to detail and the way she captures the personal details the couples request is what makes her style so charming.
Flo’s attention to detail extends to how she packages up the finished stationery, with twine in a brown cardboard box – plus these cute stickers that she uses on all their packaging…
I really can’t wait for you to see the new Charlie Scribble product pictures and website, and hope that I’ll get to show you some of them here soon.
Where I’m Going Today…
Today I’m off all the way up the north coast into Devon to visit Rowan Tree Studio who offer fab sounding crafty hen parties – I’m hoping to find out more about the different craft sessions they offer to their hens, from bunting making to creating wedding quilts.
