Paper Memories was founded by me, Sarah Morgan, back in 2001 with the aim of creating beautiful, bespoke, handcrafted photo albums and guest books that people would treasure.
How it all began
I’ve always been a crafty type. As a child I loved to draw, and as I grew, my passion moved into watercolour painting and sketching, but everything changed, however, when I got married.
My wedding experience
When I got married, I loved all the preparations but one thing I struggled with was finding the right wedding stationery. After weeks of searching I thought ‘Why don’t I make my own?’ So I did just that.
Not only did I love the creative process of designing and creating my own wedding invites, guest books, guest list and photo albums, but I was overwhelmed by the positive feedback from my guests.
Soon, this one off project became my full time hobby. I started attending wedding fairs, checking out wedding stationery online, and I always felt that I could do better!
A leap of faith
So in 2001 I decided to be brave and founded Paper Memories, so that other people could enjoy handcrafted wedding stationery. Three years ago I decided to focus more on Guest Books and have since added Photo Albums and Wedding Card boxes but have found over the past 6 months I have had many requests for stationery too so I enjoy being able to offer the complete stationery package for couples.
Spreading the love
I still get a huge amount of pleasure out of working with my customers to create their dream-wedding album, guest book and stationery. My products fly all over the world and it gives me a warm glow to think that something I’ve created becomes a special part of so many weddings, birthdays and other celebrations.
