Sue lives in Hebden Bridge and has been making things since her childhood. She loves incorporating old books, envelopes, maps and other ephemera as well as her passion for stitching and origami into her work.
After designing and making original stationery, table and venue decorations for her daughter’s wedding last year and recognising the need for a bespoke service, Sue launched ‘A Thousand Paper Wishes’.
Her new business venture takes its name from the Japanese tradition of making 1000 paper cranes when a daughter gets married to bring good luck to the couple.
Sue makes a range of paper flowers combining beautiful papers, old books, maps and comics to create bouquets, corsages, hair decorations, table decorations and favours.
She will work closely with a couple in order to incorporate their own papers, colour schemes and personalities into her bespoke creations.
Heart Gallery loves Sue’s work and she is always coming up with new ideas for us.
Sue will be at the launch of our Wedding Exhibition ‘I DO’ on Sunday 23 June to chat to you about your requirements so do come along to meet her if you are looking for something really different for your Wedding Day.
