It gives me such pleasure this afternoon to introduce you to a wonderful wedding stationery brand, Octavia Plum.

Octavia Plum is owned by Victoria Sinkinson {Vici to you and I!} and is based in London.  The company design really gorgeous vintage inspired wedding stationery for modern couples that have a passion for the beauty, decadence and intricacies of a by-gone era – some like to call it ‘borrowing from the past to create something new’, and we like that here at Love My Dress, and these Vintage Queen, Just My Type and Miss Plum designs are just up our street…

“I design vintage stationery for the contemporary bride. My stationery designs include authentic vintage imagery that I source specifically for Octavia Plum and print on quality papers. All the designs employ well considered typography. That is very important…”

How did you get into designing and producing wedding stationery?

I was already a professional designer of 11 years, and have my own illustration agent who I still work with to produce gift cards for the likes of the V&A and John Lewis.

Like many designers I created my own wedding stationery and then initially for friends and family. But last year I decided that if i was going to do it properly I needed to concentrate on it full time so I launched the new site and designs in February. I just really enjoy the excitement that a wedding brings about. Its a lovely thing to be involved in

What do you love about your profession?

I love that even in this digital age you just can’t beat the tactile quality of beautiful paper. A beautifully considered wedding invitation that drops through your door is a wonderful thing. Also I have met so many creative and inspiring individuals in the wedding industry that it’s a joy to be a part of it all…

What inspires you when it comes to your work?

Rummaging in bric-a-brac shops, a beautiful piece of lace on an old bridal gown, vintage wallpapers and sweet heart postcards…

I also love fashion and always keep a keen eye on trends to see how they might translate into my stationery. But honestly, anything can inspire me! Recently, I was at Pizza Express and noticed a striped black and white  paper cup they had on the table and thought it would be great worked into an invitation as part of the Miss Plum range…

Can you provide a price guide?

Invitations are supplied with premium quality envelopes and are £2.80 each, for digital, or £3.10 for the litho printed designs. That is my guide price but I like to give each client a bespoke price, based on their specific requirements, so I can genuinely offer them the best possible price.

I want to be able to give as many couples as possible beautiful wedding stationery for their wedding day so I’m always happy to work with clients to fit their budget…

I’ve recently been included as part of Time Out’s London wedding guide which I am very excited about. And I’ve got a notonthehighstreet shop too which launched in January and also does baby announcement stationery and thank you cards, as well as some exclusive new products to be launched soon. So watch this space!
