...a little bit about us

The Illustrated Invitation is a market leading stationers based in Somerset, UK.  We specialise in illustrating our customers wedding venue via a stunning pencil sketch which is then featured throughout a suite of personalised and unique stationery, from Save the Date to Invitation suites and from Orders of Service to Table Plans, Place cards and Menu’s.

At wedding exhibitions featuring our work, we noticed that one of the products which always drew the crowds and got people talking was our Guest Comments Frames.  So much so, we decided to create a separate brand for this and thus The Alternative Guest Book was born.  You may wish to view this site following the following link: www.alternativeguestbook.co.uk.

We are a small family business which consists of Jamie, the founder of both brands, partner Rachael, who makes sure things are running like clock-work in the background, and two assistants, Lily and Faith, who are Jamie and Rachael’s daughters and earn their pocket money by giving a helping hand at the weekends.


We have sketched many wedding venues in the UK (ask us if we have yours!) from churches to cathedrals and castles to estate homes.  We are even getting orders from Europe now for Italian villas and French chateaus so word of mouth is getting out there. 


We hope you love our work and we would love to hear from you and hopefully work with you to help wow your guests.


All the very best with your wedding planning,


Rachel, Jamie, Lily and Faith xx
