About us - Clare Fletcher Simon Alker at the studio

 

Hello, we are Clare + Simon and we are a couple who run our small business making beautiful and often outrageous super luxurious personalised cards and luxury wedding stationery with our lovely team. Small but perfectly formed meaning you get the attention and personal care directly from us in our award-winning design studio in Saddleworth England UK. We make beautiful things for people who celebrate life and it's occasions and want the very best. Our aim is to make the most luxurious cards in the world. We've made super special cards for HRH Queen Elizabeth's Birthday, Heads of State, high rollers, top business profiles, celebrities and you and me. We specialise in making beautiful thoughtful artisan handmade cards, personalised gifts, wedding invitations and events stationery with the personal touch online.

 


 

Our Studio

At age 6, Clare picked flowers from neighbours' gardens to sell, until her mum found out and made her plant new ones and apologise. At age 9 she made pen pots out of empty toilet roll inners and sold them to friends. At age 23 she started MWL Designs from her dining room table. Just herself and a desire to create beautiful things and do her own thing. She never quite fitted into the regular. Inventful ideas. Pushing boundaries. Upping the game. Inventing ingeneous concepts. Caractacus Potts. But that's only half of the story.

It turns out, Caractacus needs a Wonka. Otherwise she's just a crazy lady inventing things that never really go anywhere. That's when she met him in 2007. She saw his colour auora first. Some people call it a Chakra. Call it what you will it was very real and in plain sight for her. Nobody else saw that in him. They just knew he had 'something about him'. It was love at first signt and they moved in together after 2 weeks. You just know when you know. They built 'this thing' together. One crazy idea after another and took it to places they never thought possible. Whilst doing their thing, Caractacus + Wonka, they had 2 children Lilly + Bertie Boo. And that's where we are today.

Made With Love is now a leading design studio in the UK with a small creative team. Based in a beautiful 19th century old cotton mill, based in Saddleworth, up in't thills, in the North West of England - about 6 miles outside Manchester.

From the studio they hand blend and pour luxury soy wax candles, hand make every single personalised card and finish them with all kinds of fancy pieces. They gold foil, produce, manufacture and pack all from this busy studio in the Northwest. It's in this studio where they meet clients and offer consultations (by appointment only) for weddings and events and big projects. It's a large studio, bustling and busy. A creative hub of design, whirling of printers and the snapping of a camera somewhere in the background. When they're not on location shooting personalised gifts in a forest, they shoot all of products in house too, which makes it handy for journalists who can request hi-res themed images fast for any print deadlines.

Their goal is simple: they aim to be the best luxury wedding invitations and personalised greetings card design company in the UK. They never stop innovating and designing and welcome bespoke design work wherever they can fit it in.

For customers shopping on this website we hand make luxury greetings cards that are personalised to order online, luxury stationery for weddings and beautiful personalised gifts to celebrate life’s most special occasions for the moments in life that we cherish, personalised gifts for loved ones and luxury invitations for weddings and events. Because family, friends and homelife is everything. The beautiful moments that make up our lives such as Birthdays, births, Christenings and love should be celebrated. Day in and day out.

Their stationery is not like anything you would find on the high street in most shops for something a little bit different that's a bit special and unique to you. A little bit fancy pants. Proud to be British, they are proud to support UK business, and use local suppliers wherever possible. They use unique printing and paper techniques such as thermography, hot foil, foil stamping on fine boards from 120-600gsm.

Their wedding stationery, greetings cards & furniture have featured in the best bridal magazines & worlds media (itv, channel 4 etc), and have a clientele of discerning brides, celebrities & heads of state. They have shipped wares & makes to Kensington Palace, The Shard, luxury hotels around the world and Governments. Which still makes their belly's jump thinking about it. Their cards and candles are also available for sale in shops across the country.
