Combining timeless beauty and a hint of whimsy, modern calligraphy is a playful twist on an age-old craft. Steeped in history and wonderfully nostalgic, it goes beyond the constraints of traditional hand lettering to create something truly unique. Its refined letterforms and flourishes are the perfect medium through which to add a memorable touch to weddings, events, home décor, and small business branding.

About Merrie & Bright

Founded in 2015, Merrie & Bright creates elegant hand-lettered details, design-led wedding stationery, and luxurious paper goods. I’ve always enjoyed beautiful handwriting.

As a child, I would practice my letters over and over until I achieved the perfect shape. When my grandparents gave me my first glass dip pen and ink, I discovered a world filled with precise letterforms and perfect pen strokes.

Years later, when I found myself housebound following surgery, the urge to play with pen and ink returned. I fell in love with calligraphy all over again, and eventually Merrie & Bright was born.

Specialising in wedding invitation suites, envelope addressing, laser-cut signs, on-the-day stationery, and modern calligraphy workshops, I’m passionate about finding new ways to surround ourselves with the unique style and beauty of hand-lettering.

Transforming ideas into beautiful keepsakes that can be treasured forever, I love working on unique projects and have previously designed tattoos, hand-lettered wedding vows, and bespoke home décor.

About Me

I live in Oxfordshire with my husband and our two young children. Away from my studio, I like to lose myself in a good book or spend time scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration and ideas.

I love lemon-drop martinis, interesting art and design, thoughtful presents and big surprises. I also love to travel and explore the world, but I’m happiest at home with my pen and ink nearby.

 I’m committed to helping women who have been trafficked and exploited, so I donate a percentage of my profits to Sari Bari, an organisation offering support to women trapped in the sex trade. Providing safe employment in a loving environment, Sari Bari trains women as artisans, giving them the skills they need to create beautiful, sustainable, handmade products. Through this, the women are empowered to forge a life of freedom for themselves.
