Did you know that Lily Anna Rose Stationery was born in 2007, the same week as her wee Scottish name-sake 'Lily Anna Rose Bell' – the daughter of my oldest friend.
Way back when, Lily Anna Rose Stationery was created with just a handful of pennies and a dream! It was the dream of making a better life for my daughter and myself. The dream of creating beautiful things for wonderful couples. Following a catastrophic series of events I made the decision to be brave! I wasn’t going to be beaten by redundancy or be dissuaded by the struggles of being a lone-parent. So much so, Lily Anna Rose was nominated 'Barclays Trading Places Top 100 Business in Barclays Trading Places Awards' in 2009.
I poured love and passion into the new adventure. Eleven years on and I am happily married and loved. Lily Anna Rose has blossomed and become an important part of our family. Each and every couple has played a special part in this wonderful journey.
I’m always refreshing my signature wedding style – to maintain a distinctive individuality for the each season’s stylish bride. I hope to ignite the imagination by designing unique Couture Love collections inspired by stunning historic venues, antique textiles and romantic tales of yesteryear but with my unique contemporary edge. And just like a love story, the classic stationery designs become timeless keepsakes to treasure.”
Lily Anna Rose is a microfactory and bespoke stationery means that you can be assured that what is ordered is used, meaning there is minimal waste. I literally buy what is required to do the job. Paper is sourced from Antalis Curious Collections and they rate their paper using their Green Star System meaning what I provide is eco-friendly too.
If you look on the map you can just make out the small town of Portchester in Hampshire. It is here that I work and welcome clients to share and create something unique and special.
