My Vintage Flower






I hate talking about myself so I’ll keep it simple.
Mum – Wife – Creator – Designer – Wedding Stylist – Compulsive Collector
(my husband calls it hoarding!!)


I love my ‘job’ a wise person once told me you’ll never work a day in your life if you love what you do’ so its not really a ‘job’. I love making little stories and putting them together. Transforming a blank canvas and converting it into a magical place that represents you, its cheesy I know!


China Creations

My Vintage Flower is where a love of vintage things meets modern creative ideas. Taking something beautiful and pre-loved from yesteryear and giving it a whole new burst of appreciation in today’s world. You won’t find these designs anywhere else – They’re unique, one-off creations, each with their own story just for you and your day.

Vintage Wedding Styling

My vintage flower is a vintage wedding styling service that is here to help you create your perfect, individual setting for your magical day. I’ll help transform your venue into something that represents your style and vision. Starting with the table decorations and not finishing there, the whole area will be transformed into something uniquely personal to you.

Is it for me?
If you would like someone to help you come up with innovative ideas to style your venue then yes! It’s totally for you. Or maybe you have a strong idea of what you want and need someone to pull it together. Thats no problem, lots of brides ask for that too.

Chives The Caterers


So you’re getting married! Well before it all seems too daunting, take a deep breath, relax and let us help you make all the arrangements without the stress.

Whether you are getting married at one of our accredited venues or holding the wedding at home or elsewhere, we will work with you to ensure your day is all you wished for and more.

At the initial consultation we will discuss the plan of the day, ensuring that we incorporate your ideas and thoughts. We will provide you with a detailed breakdown highlighting the areas you need to consider and suggest other suppliers from florists to marquee companies, cake-makers to photographers, as required
In the ensuing months we are always on hand to lend support wherever needed and whatever the issue, food related or not, which of course leads us to the exciting bit.

Graham Green and his team of chefs are here to provide you with an amazing menu to choose from, incorporating ideas from Graham’s renowned restaurant in Canberra, Australia,’ The Green Herring’, through to constantly evolving dishes using an array of local seasonal produce. So whether it’s new Romney Lamb, Tenterden Pork or Kangaroo all the way from Australia you can be assured of a menu that your guests will still be talking about long after the wedding.

We provide group tastings in our quieter months January – March where you can sample up to 10 dishes from each course and meet the chefs and discuss any special requirements you may have as well as getting to talk to other couples who often like to exchange ideas.


On the day itself we provide a full co-ordination service, laying the tables with your decorations, favours etc and liaising with photographers and the bestman so you can just relax and enjoy.

Hopefully this has given you an insight into why we believe we’re ‘Not just a caterer’.

To speak with your personal wedding co-ordinator please call .

The Hummingbird Card Company





The Hummingbird Card Company was born out of a love for stationery and a desire to make beautiful things. We're laser cut crazy and love the beautiful effect so much that we design almost everything we create around it.

We live and breathe great design in our studio. We’re always looking out for new and unexpected ways to bring great design and quality to our stationery, from a little gem found at an antiques fair to a new card colour from our paper mill. We love updating our designs to keep them fresh and new, whilst retaining our quirky vintage style.

Our collections offer everything from the Save the Date card, right through to the thank you cards, with everything in between, such as invitations, orders of service, menus, place cards and table plans. We also make extra special touches such as decorations and bunting, photograph albums, ‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’ cards and laser cut artwork of the invitation which couples just love as a real keepsake from their big day.



We offer a bespoke service for brides and grooms who want something totally unique. We love creating something truly personal, often telling a story of a couples adventure so far. As there’s always loads of ideas we spend time carefully working on and creating a design that will work just for them.



We love the UK so much that we try as hard as we can to source all our materials from here. We only use the finest paper and card stock and we even have our photo albums hand bound by old fashioned book binders here in ‘little old Blighty’. Even though our studio is based in the Midlands we ship orders regularly all over the world, from the US, to Australia, South Africa and all over Europe!


At Hummingbird Cards we are so proud that our stationery is used for those precious and personal celebrations in life. We pride ourselves on our innovative design, attention to detail, excellent customer service and willingness to go the extra mile for each and every couple we have the pleasure of making for.


If you’re looking for stationery that’s going to create an impact, look no further…
