Weddings are intimate affairs. They are about the union of two people who choose to share and celebrate their special day with their loved ones.
Incorporating beautiful, hand-written elements into your your invites, place cards, and even your venue decor is one way to keep things personal and convey that sense of intimacy with your friends and family. A great calligrapher can really do wonders to make your wedding set-up uniquely you. Scroll through some of the amazing work of twelve local “type artistes” below to see what we mean.
1. Fozzy Castro-Dayrit (@thefozzybook)
Depending on your wedding theme, Fozzy can go elegant and classic or more free-spirited with your save-the-dates and invitations.

2. Oats Tiu (@oatsdiy)
Oats likes to do a lot of brushwork and even does wood signages that you can put up all over the venue. Oh, and she actually did calligraphy work for Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna’s wedding invitations, in case you don't know.
The 12 wood panels (not shown here is the one with the wedding couple's names) plus the big wooden board that I've been working on will finally be endorsed to their rightful owner this Sunday. ???? I shall miss the smell of raw wood. ???? . . #diy #weddingdiy #weddingsph #letteringonwood #weddings #oatspaints #commissioned #brideandbreakfast #woodsignages
