‘Ten Poems about Love’ for weddings and civil ceremonies

'Ten Poems about Love' for weddings and civil ceremonies

Published on Monday 30 May 2011

Recently, we have been approached by couples who are getting married and want a little something (but not the gold-coated-almonds sort of little something) to give to their guests. Their weddings sound wonderful and we like to think of our little pamphlets gracing their tables at the reception afterwards; we rather wish we could come too. So in case you are likewise looking for something a bit different (or suffer from nut allergy) look no further than our beautiful Ten Poems about Love, the cover of which we have recently re-designed as pictured here. You can read which poets and poems are featured if you look on the ‘Pamphlets‘ page. When people are placing an order for a big wedding, we offer a discount. Couples can use the decorative bookmark to write a message to guests, and there is an envelope to place them in at table settings. As usual, all highly tactile and beautifully produced. And of course, fantastic poems.

Elsewhere, in one of the most celebrated of modern love poems, we sense the boundless optimism of love at full tilt. Along […]

    The work and wonder of bees

    Published on Tuesday 28 May 2019

    Bees work hard, and there is something in their diligence that touches us. Most of us see only a fraction of their absorbing routines but their ‘bee-lines’ through our parks and gardens are more than enough to suggest their tireless dedication. Here are poems about getting stung and about a bee-keeping Divinity master in a […]
