Thank you for visiting 'Weddings by Lumi' - here is a bit about us so you know who the team behind creating your Wedding Stationery is...
First question, what is Lumi? Lumi is Finnish for 'Snow' - and here is why...
In 2018, our family headed to Lapland - myself (Frances), my husband (Oly) and our then 8 year old daughter (Leah) to visit the big guy in red himself. The plane landed, and our hearts were taken - a beautiful country, steeped in tradition and family values. Snow falling like glitter and smiles so big, bigger than we ever thought possible - the joy on our daughter's face was priceless.
That snow, that 'Lumi', holds such a special place in our hearts and reflects our ethos as a family, which is directly then carried through to our business. 'Weddings by Lumi' and our sister brand 'Love Lumi
' were created to directly reflect our passion and dedication to creating gifts and stationery that will both celebrate and resonate with those that mean the most to you.
Love Lumi has been created from our family, and continues to be carried forward by us and our wonderful team. We are not new - we have been creating and designing since 2006 since I began creating wedding stationery (I still have a folder of samples to remind me of how it started!) around a university course.
The 'Lumi' brand is our next chapter, previously Dreams to Reality, that represents our business now, and for the future. We will keep on creating, keep on seeking something different and extra special.
