Get inspired below with 7 stunning ways to express yourself with the art of the written word.

Choose lyrics from a favourite song, the inspiring words of a famous poet or a romantic quote, then have your calligrapher letter it on a fabric ceremony backdrop. It provides a dramatic focal point and will amaze your friends and family. An alternative to a traditional altar, it can even double up as your photo booth backdrop.

The most important words you may ever say can be turned into a keepsake. Have your vows handwritten onto luxurious paper and read them during the ceremony. These heartfelt sentiments can then be framed and displayed in your home.
Your vows are heartfelt and declared publicly but a sweet, private letter to your future husband or wife is an unforgettable gift. For a big romantic gesture, have your words written in a classic script on quality paper. Hide it for them to find as they get ready or give it to them at the first look.
Think seating charts, ceremony programs, cocktail lists, or menus. Anything you need to direct the focus of your guests can be done in calligraphy. From rustic pallet signs to elegant mirror seating plans, those beautiful flourished fonts can guide your guests and wow them with pretty.
Who doesn't love seeing their name written in a gorgeous loopy font? Place cards can be written on textured paper with pretty ink to complement your tablescape. Or why not try something completely different and have your guests' names written on smooth pebbles, ceramic tiles or bring nature to the table with names on shiny green leaves.

Even including the smallest touch of calligraphy into your wedding can add to the feeling of celebration and show your friends and family that you really care. Add tags hand written by a calligrapher to adorn your gifts and goodies.

A classic car with a classic calligraphy sign is the perfect combination. Add florals, greenery or ribbons for elegance and romance, or bright balloons for whimsy.
