The House of Airey


At the House of Airey we understand that a 'one-size-fits-all' approach doesn't work when you're planning a wedding or special event. 
Our personal service sets us apart, we don't sell bundles, we don't set our styles in concrete, we work with each Bride and Groom to produce an entirely flexible range of stationery, with individual elements that can be pieced together to create something really quite special, something unique, individual and perfect for you and your wedding.

I started by designing my own stationery for my wedding in 2010. I was smitten with creating beautiful designs, so as time went on, I designed wedding stationery for family and friends, friends of family and friends, and it just went on from there. The House of Airey was built! 


I love the designing, and the making, and if we have to go through 100 different variations to get it exactly right, that's what we'll do. Because a one-size-fits-all does not fit all! Weddings are once-in-a-lifetime events and they should have the most PERFECT stationery, from start to finish. 


Any of our current designs can be easily customised completely free of charge, and bespoke designs only attract a tiny up-front fee. So it's easy to get the most beautiful, handmade stationery for your wedding. 



Visit our website to see more of what we do and read testimonials from our previous clients. Get in touch and we'll make it perfect for you.

Addington Palace enjoys easy access to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports and has adequate, free onsite parking. There are frequent train services to East Croydon BR Station which links to the New Addington tram line. Gravel Hill tram stop is located at the bottom of our drive. Its location, set in beautiful grounds with splendid views on all sides, belies the fact that you are so close to the hustle and bustle. To hold an event here and experience our expert hospitality is to enjoy a stress–free day in stunning surroundings.

We only ever have one wedding each day in the Palace so that we can offer you and your guest’s exclusive use of the venue and its grounds for your special day (Subject to minimum numbers being achieved). This includes use of the Winter Garden, which is licensed for Civil Ceremonies.

Following your Ceremony, or on arrival from Church, you may wish to have a drinks reception. Drinks can be served whilst photographs are being taken, on the South Lawn or in the light and airy Library and Lecture Room overlooking the gardens.

The Great Hall is at the heart of the Palace with an exquisite French chandelier, hand-carved architrave, and silk wall coverings. The imposing fireplace offers a superb backdrop for the head table and all those memorable photographs of your reception meal.

The Great Hall can accommodate up to 150 guests, with the option for additional guests in the connecting Music Room and/or the Gallery overhead.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

“As neither of us come from affluent families it was a complete change to their usual surroundings. We were slightly worried that they may feel intimidated. In fact it was the opposite, they felt totally spoilt and loved it!”

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…
