About Us

I’d like to introduce myself to you, I’m Carol Vincent and I founded Pure Invitation in 2004 after a disastrous attempt at making my own wedding invitations.

When I planned my own wedding, I sat down and worked out the costs of everything I could think of. To my dismay we were nearly £2000 over budget and I worried about how we were going to plan the wedding we’d dreamed of within our budget. Does any of this sound familiar?

I’d had a couple of stationery quotes for beautiful handmade invites but as they were now out of our reach, I decided to make my own. I’m a creative person; it can’t be that hard, right?


I found myself wandering around the local craft shop, not having a clue where to begin.  In the end I spent a fair bit of money on card blanks and decorations and the result was pretty poor.

After my wedding (which was otherwise wonderful) I reflected on the poor stationery I’d been forced to send and pondered about how many other brides find themselves in this position.

That day Pure Invitation was born.

By choosing Pure Invitation, you won’t have to compromise on style and quality or send invites that don’t set the tone for your day. After all, if you send shabby looking invites what preconceived ideas will your guests have about your day?

I’ll help you achieve wedding stationery that your guests will never know you’ve made yourself, unless you choose to tell them of course.

And if making your own invites is simply not for you, then I offer a handmade service, so you’ll receive your invites all beautifully made and ready to send to your guests.

Now, don’t get me wrong, if you’re on such a tight budget that you’re looking for 50p invites then Pure Invitation won’t be the company for you. But if you’re looking for something beautiful that you’ve created yourself while saving a few pennies at the same time, I can certainly help you there.

All of my designs can be created in any colour and all have matching stationery items. I’ll tweak the design for you at no extra cost so you’ll find invites that are perfectly you for your unique wedding day.

I now have dedicated team of talented and creative people who work incredibily hard to make sure every item you choose from us meets the very high standards you expect.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the weddng planning and need some advice, please call me or one of my team, we’ll be able to help.
