Hi! I'm Sophie and I'm the owner, designer and illustrator at Sophie Ellis Weddings. I've always illustrated and I remember from a young age my school teacher telling me that I had a talent for illustration and design. These were just words to me at the time and instead I headed for a career in teaching and publishing.
I yearned for something more though and I always headed back to creating something with my hands. It wasn't until we got married in 2016 that I began to use my creative gene and I designed my own wedding stationery, learnt calligraphy and realised that I really had something quite unique.
Within a year I had bought my own hot foil press and the rest has been history. I have worked with couples all over the world, been featured upon some huge publications and no project is too big of an ask.
I have since developed over time and I now incorporate my love of seamless patterns, toile de jouy and crests within couples stationery. I love nothing more than seeing each and every couple have stationery completed that is a true heirloom to pass on to their family.
Everything that I create has an elegance and class to it. I'm a lover of finer things, I'm a dreamer and I'm also a do-oer.
I am truly inspired by the magic of the world and of how we can create beautiful heirlooms that not only looks, but feels truly scrumptious to all the senses.
I'm captivated by the hearts of my clients. I love to know their own love story, their heritage and their future plans.
