Tell us a bit about your business…

I design stationery for couples who like something a bit different! I have a range of existing designs that can be altered to suit their wedding colours and wording. I spend most of my time working on the illustrated designs. This can be anything the couple wants! From an illustrated portrait, pets, flowers, wedding venue and their favourite things in life…literally anything!

What made you start up the business…

Emmy Designs was started by myself (Emma) when my sister got married a few years ago. As maid of honour to the bride, it was my job to help take some of the pressure off and help her to plan the big day. I was in my element! As a trained photographer and with many weddings in my portfolio, I had an idea of what made a successful wedding day. Of course I didn’t want to photograph the wedding and miss out on bridesmaid duties, but I wanted to help out in any other way possible!

The sea is a destructive yet beautiful force…

We have something a little different for you today…Brought to us by Mr & Mrs Unique supplier, Rebecca Douglas Photography, this nautical bridal shoot was inspired by the myth of ‘The Siren’ – beautiful, yet deadly creatures whom are said to lure sailors to shipwreck with their enchanting music and voices.

Here Rebecca tells us more about the inspiration for the shoot…

In the Summer of 2016, I was asked to be a part of a creative project with the theme of deconstruction. I worked with a team of local creatives who specialise in hair, make-up and bridal fashion to create unique pieces for a local art exhibition.

I have always lived by the sea; it has been my home and it constantly fascinates and amazes me. From the ferocity of the waves to the wonders of the fairytales and mythology surrounding the vast scape. One myth I decided to focus on was that of ‘The Siren’ which first appeared in Homers ‘The Odyssey’; beautiful, yet deadly creatures whom are said to lure sailors to shipwreck with their enchanting music and voices.

Deconstructing this myth, we worked on the concept of ‘bride’ and how this represents different shades of beauty and opted for a deconstructed feel of the

I’ve been working and designing the new collection for the past 6 months. I love lace so I searched the globe looking for exciting new fabrics. I have also been experimenting with different dyes and colour techniques to give you some interesting new ideas to spice up the traditional Ivory wedding dress.

A lot of things have inspired me while designing the collection. I am always a lover of vintage clothing and some of these designs definitely have a 1920’s feel to them. My love of lace gives the dresses a fresh bohemian

Tanya & David…

Tell us how you met and got engaged…

We met through boredom!  We lived in separate flats in the same block of flats in Cardiff Bay – our flat mates were mutual friends, but we had never met one another.  When both our flat mates went away on holiday, we were separately exchanging texts with them saying how bored we were.  Tanya’s flat mate, Bexs, suggested she drop in on me to say ‘hi’.  Tanya did just that… the following weekend we went out for drinks and the rest is history!

We got engaged whilst on a group holiday in Ibiza – we were out there to celebrate our friends’ joint birthday.  Whilst we were there it was our 5 year anniversary.  David booked the ‘Amante Table’ experience at the gorgeous, beachside Amante Restaurant, near Santa Eularia.  We had our own little beach hut away from the main restaurant and had the most amazing 5 course meal.  The waitress brought my
