As an interior designer I love creating personal objects for clients, so to me it seemed natural to do the same for my wedding last month.

For whilst my bridesmaids and I were getting ready for the big day Olivia von Halle and her team created the most beautiful bespoke silk pyjamas for us with embroidery to tie in with designs from the wedding stationery.

Then for my honeymoon and beyond I had velvet slippers and a Goyard St Louis bag monogrammed with the initials of my married name.

Monogramming is an easy way to personalise things and add a level of individuality and it doesn’t have to be expensive, my brother Anthony proudly informs me that Marks & Spencer offer a monogramming service on a range of their mens’ shirts.
