I'm Lizzie, creator and designer behind Connie & Joan wedding invitations, stationery and templates.
A few years back, I worked as a web designer for the Press Association in London, England, where I designed and maintained websites for the Royal family (including the online magazine 'Royal Insight'). Since then, I have been actively involved in other design work including interiors, graphic design and illustration. Design has always been something that interests me and I also try to keep myself up to date with the latest technology. It's great being creative on the computer.
The idea of 'Connie & Joan' came about when I realised I could help a lot of people by providing affordable but professionally created wedding stationery templates for much needed items, while also providing clear, easy to follow instructions on how to create them.
My idea was to give a simple solution for such items, and provide easy-to-follow instructions that would show how the design templates could be easily adapted to suit specific themes or styles. For example, my wedding invitation template
sets can be customised to the colour of your dress, or your bridesmaids dresses, and you can type on them what you like - you could even type something in a different language!
More recently I have been making printed wedding invitations and stationery sets
, based on my most popular designs. I've realised some people just prefer to have everything made for them. So I now offer all Connie & Joan designs customised, printed and delivered to you, at an affordable price.
Working from my little studio near the beach couldn't be better! When I need inspiration, I just take myself off for a little stroll along the shore!
I hope you enjoy browsing around my shop.
And should you have any feedback or questions, or even ideas for me, do drop me a line.
Oh... and if you're wondering, Connie and Joan were my dear grandmothers.
