Crystal heart design – married on 25th July 2008
Natalie, my husband and I just wanted to express our thanks for the wonderful invitations you made for our wedding in July this year. The 'Crystal heart' design! The invites were made to our exact specifications and nothing was too much trouble.
Our guests absolutely loved them and we had so many comments about how pretty and classy they were. The price was also very reasonable considering how much time and effort you put into them and I am just so pleased that I happened to find your website in my search engine! Thank you again for the part you played in making our wedding the most special day of our lives!

Laura & Paul Hinton – Wedding 26th August 2007
We wanted to write and say such a huge thank you for the input you had on our wedding day, its difficult to know where to start though! The invitations to begin with were beautiful and we lost count on the day of the compliments coming your way on the table plan/place cards etc. Your service was faultless and what I noticed above all other suppliers was that you were as enthusiastic and excited as we were which made the experience of working with you so much better. We would recommend anyone reading this to choose Natalie as your stationary provider, we certainly made the right choice in picking “Especially Made”, and it was worth every penny!
