Hi there! We’re Katie and Amy; two sisters with a passion for elegant wedding décor, exquisite details, and innovative design. The Ivy Cottage developed from our mutual love of all things pretty and unique. With almost 50 years’ experience in the construction industry and some top-notch joinery skills, our dad Brian completes the team.
In 2013, while searching for something to coral the clutter that accumulated throughout her home, Katie asked Brian to make her a small, sturdy, wooden storage box. Picking up a paint brush and letting her creativity run wild, she transformed his simple, functional design into an eye-catching object that overflowed with rustic elegance and charm.
After teaming up to attend our first craft market in the same year, we’ve gone on to refine our designs and expand our range, helping over 2000 couples add plenty of personality and the perfect finishing touches to their wedding.
Using a variety of raw materials including wood, paper, acrylic and fabric, we’ve created an extensive collection of beautiful and distinctive products. From stylish décor to rustic wooden wedding signs, precious keepsakes, and gifts, everything we produce is made by hand and packaged with care.
Hi there, I’m Katie
With a passion for creativity and a keen eye for design, I can often be found with my paintbrush in hand, busy adding delicate details to bespoke commissions.
I have a diploma in event design and I’ve previously studied colour psychology. I love collaborating with couples to help them create their dream wedding, and along with the rest of The Ivy Cottage team, I’m committed to providing outstanding customer service.
Away from the studio, l love spending time outdoors, especially beside the sea. I’m fascinated by history and never miss an opportunity to wander round an old castle or stately home. I adore painting and love using watercolours to attempt to capture the beauty of the natural world.
Hi, I’m Amy.
I bring another burst of creativity to The Ivy Cottage, drawing, making, planning, and painting alongside my sister and our dad.
I love helping couples define their wedding style, working closely with them to create and source the décor that brings their vision to life. Whether you’re looking for a single party prop or in need of full wedding design, myself and the team live and breathe every project, product or event we’re involved with.
When I’m not knee-deep in sawdust or covered in paint, I’m usually busy looking after my two beautiful daughters.
