Based in Essex Lydia Packham Calligraphy specialises in bespoke wedding stationery design and illustration, corporate and event modern calligraphy.
After years loving art & design I was first introduced to the wonder that is modern calligraphy at a friend’s hen do in 2016. It was there I was fortunate enough to experience a 2 hour beginner workshop in London. Little did I know how my love would grow for all things pen and ink.
Since then I’ve been creating bespoke wedding invitations, personalised calligraphy, logo design, window calligraphy design and illustration etc for various individuals and companies. I also hold beginner calligraphy workshops where I live in Essex and have taught over 500 people how to use a nib and ink since 2019.
I am also passionate at using my small business to give back. in 2018 I gave over £120 to Anti-slavery/human trafficking charities through the sales of my Christmas cards. In 2020 with the spread of covid-19 and many isolated and stressed at home, I made the decision to create discounted beginner calligraphy packs and free online social media lessons in order to bring the calming art of calligraphy into many homes.
One aspect of the job I absolutely love is bespoke projects as it requires a real understanding of what the client likes and then working with the client to create something really special and unique to them. With wedding stationery I find every couple is so different which provides a wonderful process of creativity from initial sketches to the big day. There is nothing better than seeing photos of the stationery in all their glory on the wedding day, it makes the whole job so satisfying to see it from creation to fruition.
