Who is Thoughtfully Made UK?
Hey there, we’re Thoughtfully Made UK & we are obsessed with all things wedding and handmade.
Founded by me – India - in 2019, we have built our company from a side project to a full-time gig. I spend my days designing stationery of all types & nurturing it until it’s a finished product, thoughtfully put together by hand.
My wonderful husband, Jack, often gets involved with the putting together & tying of twine as well as much more behind the scenes.
We are based in our home studio, just outside of Nottingham city centre.
How did we get here?
I have always loved to paint and draw, from as early as 8 you could find me sketching and doodling cartoons & characters freehand (my mum used to think I traced them!).
I focused on my creativity throughout school and college, where I also learnt the skill of pattern cutting & apparel design. From there I went on to graduate university with a degree in Fashion Design & work for both high street & high end brands throughout my career.
As the most creative member of my family I have always put together stationery for any of our events; from Invitations for birthdays & graduation parties to Christmas Day menus, I’ve always had a love for it!
After I made & designed the stationery for my own wedding, I realised how much I had missed the hands on side of design & creativity. Friends and family started asking me to make things for their events, so I decided I’d better start charging! From there the business went from strength to strength until I was able to leave my full-time role as a Fashion Designer a few months later.
We are still a very small & young business, its been incredible the trust, support & love that we have gained already from all our brides and grooms to be!
What makes us different?
Attention to detail & a personal touch; you wont get lost or forgotten being passed across multiple team members.
I work with each bride and/or groom personally, to build a relationship and really get a feel for their wedding... I really care about what I put out, you won’t find me saying “that’ll do”, I work on your stationery as if it was for my own wedding.
Whether its bespoke or from our collections we will work with you until you are completely happy with the design, we wont charge extra for a font or colour change here and there.
As a small business every sale means the world to us and is one more day that I can continue doing what I love.
I know what its like to work with wedding suppliers, I’m here every step of the way to make it as easy and stress free as possible. Whatever your vibe we will adapt to suit you.
