Behind Card and Light

Card and Light is the creation of Madeleine and Philip Field. We run our bespoke wedding stationery business from our beloved home city of Bath and are proud parents to our daughters Cleo and Esme.

A little about us

Having first met in 2008 through close friends, we finally got our acts together and married in 2016 at the Roman Baths. Although a brief 3-month engagement, we really enjoyed planning our wedding and were fortunate with our combined design and events backgrounds to be able produce our own wedding stationery for our big day. However, the process provided us with first-hand experience of how stressful the run up to your big can be and set our minds whirring as to how we could utilise our skills to help other couples. As a freelance graphic designer since 2006, Phil has a vast knowledge in the world or design and print. His expertise in branding has led him to develop a large and varied client database for his independent design business along with a trusted network of suppliers both in Bath and nationwide. Madeleine’s background in PR and marketing since 2008 has led her to run numerous campaigns and events for London and Bath companies. Working to tight deadlines with great client liaison is her forte and it’s this combined skill set between Phil and Madeleine that led to Card and Light being born.

However, although essential to the service we provide, our skills and capabilities mean nothing without the warm and friendly service we’re able to offer clients. From planning our own wedding, we know that suppliers are made or broken by the attitude and approach they take to dealing with clients. At Card and Light, we put relationships first and our aim is to make designing your wedding stationery as enjoyable and rewarding for you as it is for us.

"What can I say about Card and Light other than WOW!"

Philip and Madeline designed us the most beautiful logo for our wedding and produced our personalised and copper foiled invites and inserts – all that fitted in a stunning die-cut folder. Having the order or service, menu cards and place names also made was something we’d not thought about and our guests commented on how amazing looked (plus loved their bespoke designed favours!). Thanks so much again!

"You guys really took the stress out of planning our big day!"

As a couple who love to travel, my husband and I wanted a travel inspired invitation but we were struggling to find anything suitable that we could really make our own. We were so happy to find Card and Light and what Philip designed for us was just amazing. We were so thrilled with our flight card style folder complete with tickets and tear off RSVPs to our wedding. Some of our friends have kept theirs as a memento! Philip really has an eye for detail, is hugely creative and the whole design process was flawless from start to finish. What more is there to say!

"Without hesitation I’d recommend Card and Light - their work truly speaks for itself!"

We used Card and Light to design our wedding stationary both for our invitations and on-the day items as well as our wedding album afterwards. Philip and Madeleine came up with some fantastic ideas and we were delighted with the results, especially how everything was exactly matched to our purple and silver theme. After the wedding, we wanted to produce a wedding album that incorporated our branding and the finished book far exceeded our expectations. Card and Light have been an absolute pleasure to work with, they’re incredibly professional, timely, attentive and accommodating.
