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.
