I'm Fiona and I started Ruby & Bloom Paper Co with a love for creating art and building genuine connections with people. Having always been a romantic at heart, stepping into the world of wedding invitation design was a natural progression for me. It gave me an opportunity to create wedding stationery from my artwork inspired by the love stories of my couples - it is a true privilege to bring your wedding day to life through painting. I prioritise kindness in everything I do, designing thoughtfully for Clients that become friends - I couldn't ask for more!
There’s something rather wonderful about being able to build a business based around designing and connecting with couples. It really is a pleasure to play a part in your wedding, from the very moment you send out your ‘Save the Dates’ until the last ‘Thank You’ card is opened.
Ruby & Bloom Paper Co was born out of a love affair with art – it was almost inevitable that I would find myself immersed in the world of weddings and artistry. I hold incredibly fond memories of my Grandfather teaching me to draw roses and flowers from a very small age, and to this day, I’ve continued in his footsteps. Florals endlessly inspire my work and I find beauty in the simplest of things.
I am also influenced by my time studying for my Art History Masters in Paris. Being taught in the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay in front of the original paintings was one of the most memorable times of my life. You’ll find that my inspiration is a gentle nod towards the Impressionists, Baroque & Rococo art, along with French ornate design and architecture.
When I’m not working with couples to create the prettiest of paper goods, you’ll find me spending time with my loved ones, whether that’s grabbing brunch or enjoying a cocktail. I'm happiest when I'm by the water and I have spent most of my life living a stone's throw from the sea. I love living in Edinburgh and visiting other areas of Scotland, particularly the highlands, where I grew up.
Let's get started with creating something beautiful for your wedding - I can't wait to hear your plans and I look forward to chatting all things wedding stationery with you soon!
J & T, married September 22
