MEET THE TEAM
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY! NOW WHO ARE WE, YOU ASK!
Hi everyone, I'm Natalie!
I am the founder of Emerald Heart Invitations! I am the designer, illustrator, trimmer, folder, packer, note writer.. all round elf in the business. I set up the business after my wedding in November 2016, I loved designing our wedding invitations so much and had such a wonderful response from them, that I decided to design a collection for all you lovely folk out there! I live with my husband, Dave, our baby son, Casper and our little rescue terrier, Sparky, by the sea in Courtown, Co. Wexford, Ireland. I have a Graphic Design background and worked in the industry for over 10 years, so I know loads about typography, printing techniques, beautiful papers and Illustration! Designing is my passion and I also have a line of greeting cards, comic books and prints under the name, The Stars Appeared (also available to purchase here in the shop!
Who runs the business?
At the moment, the business is made up of three of us; there's me, Natalie, there's Dave who helps me with the marketing, social media & blogging and our loyal intern Sparky (pictured above) who hand writes all the Thank You cards! Because we are a tiny team, we can only take a limited number of invitation orders per year, so get in there quick my lovelies. I want to put so much care and attention into each and every one of your orders, and nothing goes to print until you are super happy with everything. Every single order fills my heart with pure joy and I feel truly blessed that I can do what I love to make a living!
We have a little creative studio in Courtown and all of our invitations are professionally printed in Ireland and are designed, hand made and packaged in-house. We are serious romantics and our heart skips a beat when packing up every box of your invitations; we sincerely appreciate being involved with something so important, so thank you for thinking of us!
At Emerald Heart, weddings are our passion and we think we offer something a little different in the wedding invitation market. We love gorgeous paper and flawless print quality. Beautiful, personalised wedding invitations is what gets us excited! We try to think outside the box to offer you a unique and memorable invitation for the most important party of your life!
We offer a broad range of Whimsical, Funny, Rustic, Woodland, Elegant and printable packages. We offer Custom Couple Illustrations and Pet Portraits. We also have a wide range of Wedding Extras, from Wedding Ceremony Booklets, Table Plans and Table Names to Evening Invitations and Menus. Also available are our much loved Custom Paper Dolls! We have something for Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter / Christmas.
Why should you choose Emerald Heart?
We believe that every Wedding Invitation should be unique and spectacular. This will probably be the most important letter you ever send out, so why not make it the best it can possibly be? It can get overwhelming when looking for an invitation that you love and you hope your guests will love too. Every single one of our Wedding Invitation Packages can be tailor made just for you! All colours are customisable and we can even include your children or pets into the mix to make your stationery truly one of a kind! Before your mind gets boggled, ask yourself a few questions:
1. What colours make you smile?
2. Do you prefer simple or vibrant?
3. Do you like classic or modern designs?
4. Is superb quality a must?
5. Are you looking for an Invitation Designer who is really there for you throughout the process?
6. Are you looking for something you don't see every day?
If the answer to the last three questions is YES (which, of course, it should be) then you can take your shoes off and get cosy because you've found what you're looking for! Let us take it from here.
