The Splendid Swan Story


The story of the Splendid Swan started back in 2009 when Rebecca started designing and creating celebration invitations and personalised T-shirts for family and friends. The news of her beautiful, bespoke stationery travelled quickly, and she soon developed a reputation for quirky, luxury paper goods with a personal touch.

Whilst still offering a unique stationery design service, over the years she also worked as a fashion and textiles designer where she discovered her love of wonderful trims to add the finishing touches. From gorgeous velvet ribbons and sheer lace to buttons, bows and everything that sparkles on your wedding day.
Rebecca also worked as a graphic designer, where her mind was overflowing with creative ideas and inspiration. It was here that she developed a penchant for typeface and fonts. She became skilled at creating beautiful typography and lettering, and was enthralled by paper. Not just the everyday paper you put in your home printer, but sheets with an interesting texture or finish.

The designer also spent several years working as a marketing manager for a luxury North East hotel, where she fell in love with the wedding industry and loved helping couples realise the vision of their wedding day. She also learnt just how important it is to brides and grooms that their wedding flows smoothly from start to finish, and this is something that is firmly reflected in her aim to create a hassle-free design service for her clients.
