de Winton Paper co


Wedding stationery is a guest’s first glimpse of your wedding, as well as a keepsake that will last for years.

The de Winton Paper co is a small design studio set up by illustrator and designer Harriet de Winton. Based in Bristol but we work with clients nationwide. Specialising in elegant, watercolour hand painted stationery for weddings & everyday.

At de Winton Paper co, we combine the delicacy of watercolour technique with fresh colour schemes and contemporary designs to create modern, elegant stationery. We can’t wait to work with you to create a very special part of what will be a wonderful day.

Our at the ready collections feature a broad range of invitation suites personally designed by Harriet - all you have to do is fill in your information. The suites fall into three collections:

Contemporary, for couples organising their wedding their way.  With playful designs, cutting edge fonts and contemporary colour schemes.


Modern Classic, for the couple who want a nod to tradition but enjoy contemporary colour schemes and fonts


Romantic, a classic, more formal approach to wedding stationery: luxurious fonts and designs in delicate colour schemes.



We also offer a bespoke service to create a unique suite. We only work with a limited number each year to ensure a quality product perfect for your wedding. If you are looking for wedding stationery that’s a little bit different but totally beautiful ask us about the bespoke service by emailing

Paper goods never go out of style. 

Back in the 1970s, Harriet’s parents received an unusual wedding gift: one guest used their wedding invitation as a canvas for a beautiful watercolour landscape, framed it and gave it back to them as a wedding gift. It has hung in the hall of our family house ever since and only recently Harriet realised what an original idea it was. 

“I have never seen anything quite like it since. It has become a sweet and powerful memory of that day, and that is what we look to create with the de Winton Paper co collections.

“After designing stationery for family weddings, de Winton Paper co was born. Using the same techniques as that original wedding gift, transforming the traditional wedding invitation into a piece of beautiful and original artwork.”

Harriet loves designing contemporary invitations with a nod to the conventions and age old rituals of marriage; with beautiful paper and typography, she incorporates contemporary colour schemes and motifs in gentle watercolour giving the collections a modern elegance. 

All the stationery is Giclée printed, locally in Bristol onto beautiful high quality paper and card stock.

We can’t wait to work with you to create a very special part of what will be a wonderful day.
