Around ten months ago, I listened to a podcast where a wedding supplier called Jenni was talking all about how to get your brand right. I came away from that podcast thinking, “wow she is absolutely right” and two months later, deciding to wholly trust everything she had said, I completely rebranded Rhymes To Remember – my website, my business cards, my social media, everything. Then, as if by magic, I suddenly became much more visible to other wedding suppliers, including Jenni!
Jenni is the owner and extremely talented lettering artist behind The Handmade Sign Company. She got in touch with me as she was taking part in a styled wedding shoot and was looking for wording to add to a backdrop that she’d been asked to make. Well, I was beside myself with excitement after hearing from her. This branding idol of mine had just asked ME to work with her. It was as though “someone off the telly” had just come up and said hello to me!
Anyway, getting back to the story…I wrote a new poem to fit with the woodland theme of the shoot and Jenni delicately hand-lettered it onto calico fabric. The other suppliers on set at the shoot had nothing but encouraging things to say about it on the day and it looked stunning in the photos.
Since then, we have worked together on countless other shoots, with Jenni hand-lettering my words onto backdrops, wooden signage, handheld banners and even ribbon. We have formed quite a friendship through working together over the last few months and we both love how well our two talents fit together to make such beautiful and unique pieces.
So, can you guess what comes next? That’s right, Jenni and I have decided to team up to offer backdrops, signage and much more with my poems and quotes on. You have a choice of either using one of the poems or quotes I have already written, or you can have a piece written that is completely bespoke to you. Perhaps it could be your love/life story or maybe your feelings written in poetic verse.
Here’s a few words from Jenni herself: “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sally over the last few months on a variety of projects, and have always been blown away with her work. Often couples come to me wanting some statement signage for their big day, including large banner backdrops to take centre of their ceremony, however they also tend to struggle with knowing what words to use. Sally is not only able to provide unique words, written bespoke to them and their story, but also provides a beautiful keepsake for even after their wedding day is over.”
We are very excited about where this collaboration may take us and have listed some of the things we currently have to offer for weddings and events. But it doesn’t stop at weddings. Jenni also owns a sister company called Cabrelli Design making and selling pieces for the home. So, if you’re looking for something bespoke to hang on the wall then look no further!
We are both always open to new suggestions so if you have an idea that you’d like to discuss with us then we’d love to hear from you. Feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and Jenni on email@example.com.
