I love working with new designers as they bring a breath of fresh air to our themes. They creative flair allows couples more choice for their big day and maybe might even influence their overall theme for the day. Today I would love to introduce Lynsey White of Uniquely White.
This blog post hopes to give you a little bit more detail about who Uniquely White are and what inspires and drives Lynsey in her business. Enjoy…
Tell us a bit about business and what made you link up with Paperless Wedding:
Uniquely White came about as an idea whilst I was planning my own wedding a couple of years ago. Being a graphic designer, I was busy creating my own wedding stationery and decided this was what I wanted to do in the future, this was where my passion was, so since then I’ve been slowly working on creating a business that incorporates my love of weddings and design.
I strongly believe that every wedding is unique to the couple getting married and this should be reflected in the design, which is why my wedding stationery is created with the couple in mind, not anyone else. I offer inspiration, a personal touch and a promise to create the wedding stationery of the engaged couples dreams tailored to a price to suit their budget.
I admire Paperless Weddings and their aspiration to create an alternative, unique approach to weddings and invitations and so am extremely happy and excited to be working with them to create some beautiful designs that will hopefully put a smile on lots of couples faces.

What would you say your style is?
I’m not sure I have a particular style when it comes to designing stationery; I usually aim for clean and simple and end up with something a lot more elaborate! I just go with the flow and whatever is influencing me at the time usually comes across in my designs. I do love a good floral design though, along with traditional/vintage designs.
Tells us what you love about designing.
I love getting lost in a design; I can lose quite a few hours when I get into a particular brief. I also love seeing people’s faces when you give them their items, fully printed and there in their hands. I think being a designer, particularly in the wedding industry, is one of the most gratifying jobs out there, you are part of their day. Your designs are providing the first hint at their special day to their loved ones, it’s lovely to be a part of it and knowing your design has potentially been seen by hundreds of people is extremely satisfying.
What do you love about weddings?
Everything! The excitement surrounding a wedding is so contagious; it’s impossible to not get caught up in the magic of it all. I just love everything to do with weddings, which is why I love being involved in stationery so much.
How do you do your bit for the environment?
Obviously working within such a print orientated industry means I can’t avoid using paper, not a fantastic help to the environment. However the print company I use only use paper stock from sustainable forests and so whilst I can’t get away from the fact I need paper, I can at least do my bit to help make sure we look after our forests.
What is your best budget saving tips in life?
Always be prepared to shop around for the best deal for your requirements and be true to yourself in terms of what you actually need. Whilst a crystal-embellished invitation might look gorgeous on the Pinterest board you’ve made, do you really need it if it means compromising on some other aspect of your wedding? Also don’t be afraid to mention your budget to a company right from the start, you don’t want to have your heart set on a fantastic idea to then find out it’s way out of your price range.
When not working what are your other passions?
I love baking; I’m always making birthday cakes for various family members! I also love to snuggle up with a good book, enjoy spending time in the garden and going for a good walk. I like to explore new places with my husband and enjoy the history that the UK has to offer. I’m also a serial pinner, can spend hours on Pinterest!
