Our beautiful baby boy, Judah Jackson McGinnigal, entered the world and stole our hearts on Wednesday 19th December, 2012. He is the most beautiful little tiny person we ever did meet (we may be a little biased) but he really is just so utterly perfect. We are besotted with him and haven’t done a whole [...]
Tomorrow, 28.12.12, is our Anniversary!!! 3 Years of happy marriage… something worth a celebration for sure! And celebrate we will do… Our lovely family, always so kind, have treated us to a stay at the super posh & fancy Mar Hall so we are heading down in the morning for a day of pampering and ultimate [...]
With Christmas just around the corner (Eeeeeeeeeeeeek!) gifts seem to be what’s on everyones minds. If you as much as have an email address I am sure you know what I mean. Continual suggestions of gifts we may like (or need?) and discounts to be had seem to infiltrate my inbox on an hourly occurrence [...]
A series of thoughts, events and a little of who we are to read and enjoy. The concept of blogging regularly hasn’t been met with an awful lot of enthusiasm by me. However with many events up and coming and a new sense of love for social media I have finally decided to create a [...]
Today I have a new appreciation of light, and how it really is a photographers best friend/ worst nightmare. For all our lovely wedding photographer friends out there- I feel your love/ pain- whatever the case may be on the day! In our new daylight saving timezone, in the city of Glasgow which is all too [...]
We had such a lovely day yesterday down at the Glasgow Wedding Collective Wedding Fayre showing off our new wedding stationery wares to the vintage masses. Our day was filled chatting with loads of lovely couples planning their Glasgow wedding for next year, (thanks to all who came by and chatted with us) and of course, taking some [...]
As our evenings draw in and Autumn is well and truly upon us, our Friday afternoon in the e.y.i.love studio has been filled with colours and textures which truly reflect the season. Gone are the summer brights and lights, and in replace of them come more darker, earthy tones and stationery which reflects what we all [...]
It’s that time again folks, the Glasgow Wedding Collective are hosting their fourth vintage wedding show at the Hillhead Bookclub on October 14th. The GWC was started by our lovely friends Chris and Gillian. Their aim “to handpick and bring together a selection of exciting independent and vintage style wedding suppliers from throughout Scotland”. They did just [...]
We, team EYI LOVE, are absolutely in love with our home city of Glasgow. Yes it may rain quite a lot, but if you come from this city you learn to appreciate it in all of it’s charm and whenever we do get a sunny day (like today) well, there really is no finer [...]
A MASSIVE thank you to all the lovely couples, bridesmaids and wedding entourages who came and chatted with us over the weekend at the S.E.C.C. Wedding Show. We hope you all survived the madness and had a ball- whilst finding lots of inspiration and super wedding suppliers for your big day. We had a great [...]
So, last night we hit the town with the wedding glitteratti and headed on down to the big fat scottish tweet up at 29. & We.Had.A.Ball. MASSIVE thanks to all who made this all possible. (Mrs P&P) and how FUN, and slightly embarrassing are smilebooths!!
Happy New Year to one and all! And especially to all those newly engaged’s,the betrothed for the year ahead (and the still to meet’s too! maybe 2012 has some happy surprises in store!) What better way to start your wedding year than coming on down to the Hillhead Bookclub on Sunday for The Glasgow Wedding [...]
We want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas time. Sadly, we have lost our gorgeous wee pupster this week- and it has been quite hard to decide whether to share our Christmas card which features our little dude, but in some ways, there seems like no more appropriate thing to do. Harris was an [...]
I might just have the best husband… in the world… EVER!!!! On Monday we celebrated our 2nd Wedding Anniversary in the one and only city of love… PARIS! Unknown to me, Jack had booked and organised everything on the sly and completely and utterly whisked me away and surprised me. I am so glad I [...]
On Saturday Jack and I took a little weekend trip with my brother and his beautiful fiance to the recently opened Three Sisters Bake Cafe, in the idyllic Quarries Village. We met Nichola (one of the baking sisters) at the GWC Wedding Fayre last week, who was (very calmly) showcasing their cakes despite the fact their [...]
A little peak into the Glasgow Wedding Collective Vintage Style Wedding Fayre, which took place on Sunday. Thought I’d leave the real photography to a few of the photo genius’s (genui?) who were showcasing their wares (Chistopher Currie, Mirrorbox… to name but a few) but for a wee sneak peak, the iphone does me, and [...]
Today we were invited to the PSYBT Regional Business Awards as one of their finalists and are delighted to say that we were selected as the 2011 Runner Up! It was all a bit exciting really and we are absolutely over the moon, not only for e.y.i.love but for the winner, Nick Cohen, with his [...]
Yesterday we decided to take a little ‘research’ trip through to the burgh (i have a lovely glam assistant with me this week whilst Natasha is on work experience with us) so we took a trip to see the other side of my work in the Textile Department at the Art college and then take [...]
Yesterday we had a fab day with The Glasgow Girls at their wedding show in Partick Burgh Hall. The girls really look after us well (as you can see from Jacks endless supply of tea!) and we met so many lovely new faces. Thanks to all who stopped by and had a chat with us. [...]
We are super excited about this! Not only were we excited enough about being part of the recently launched awsomeness that is the Glasgow Wedding Collective… but we’ve also got the Vintage Style Fayre coming up. If you fancy yourself as a bit of bride looking for something unique/ vintage/quirky, there is only one place [...]
Thank you to everyone who came along to visit us at The Royal Concert Hall Wedding Show over the weekend. It was a ball, as always… And we loved meeting so many new couples and a few familiar faces now too (we always end up near someone dishing out way too much delish chocolate at [...]
It’s that time of year again…
As much as I LOVE making all things wedding-y and paper related- sometimes it is so nice to go back to my roots and work with a little bit of fashion. This mornings work… some new prints for Andreja Bistricic. Coming soon…
This arrived through our letterbox today. We may have had a little something to with what’s inside(!), but more of that to come over the next few months. For now, I shall savour every moment of unwrapping this little delight…
Last night we took a trip through to Edinburgh to see the Fleet Foxes live at the Corn Exchange. They were amazing. Absolutely and utterly breathtaking at moments, and their voices… and their instruments (the never ending list of them) were just so beautiful. Live music is good for my soul. I really do love [...]
“These pieces complete the sentences that the pictures and the words could never quite say on their own…” Shaun Sundholm (photographer) Like any good match.
Sometimes, a Monday morning needs a little bit of beautiful packaging. And who better to provide this, than LADUREE – one of the world’s finest!
Last Friday Jack and I took part in a sponsored spin- (10 hours, 10 bikes- YIKES!!) in aid of raising cash (and awareness) for the wonderful work of Glasgow City Mission. It was an amazing event to be part of and I would say we have both been really moved and challenged by what we [...]
Thought we should really have a little look at this piece of 2011 Invitational History, since we are in the business of wedding stationery. Classic, Simple, Gold Engraving… Fit for a Royal Wedding? (we like it!) Do you?
Wanted to share these new Gold Bevelled Cards we now have in stock for printing the most Royal of wedding stationery. They are super thick and super lush. (and come in silver too!) If you’d like to find out more about having your own wedding invitations printed onto these beauties, CONTACT US here.
The lovely people at Southside Happenings have featured us on their “Creative Thursday” section on the blog this week! We are proud to live South of the City, so it has been an honour to be featured on the blog that let’s us all know what’s going on around our streets. Please take a minute to [...]
I LOVED the Royal Wedding!! It was so utterly everything we could have hoped for and more from our Prince and his beautiful bride. A friend sent me a link to this and I think it is just perfect. Well, a little cheeky towards the cousins, but… Would it be a British affair without a [...]
Happy Good Friday! I realise (with the kind help of some family and friends!) that I have been a bit slack with keeping up the blogging side of the site these past few weeks. We have just been super busy making so many beautiful wedding invitations for the upcoming summer weddings, which is great, but [...]
i love this by i love typography
Walking past the Mulberry store on Ingram Street a few nights ago I fell in love with their new window display featuring these gorgeously huge pink paper flowers. A fine example of a brilliantly creative British brand.
This tells the story of how I feel today… You know when you just have one of those mornings. (pic. 1) when all you can hear is the rain and wind outside, it’s so dark and cold and your whole body seems to be whispering at you softly to just stay in bed. it seemed [...]
how amazing are these glasses by Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony?
A big HUGE thank you to everyone who came along to the S.E.C.C Wedding Show at the weekend! We had a ball (AND lots of chocolate… that’s what happens when your stall is right beside the most delish chocolate fountain in the S.E.C.C. Ooops!) But we really loved meeting so many new lovely faces, and [...]
I have re:watched and re:watched this video over and over again since The Brits on Tuesday night. I don’t know, maybe I’m just an old romantic/ emo at heart… but I question anyone who does not shed a tear or two watching this. It has been a welcome accompaniment to our late nights this week [...]
Just thinking about ” The Zeitgeist” and I come across this image of Hope from Hillsong Collected. There is nothing more “of the moment”. Of all our moments. “and we have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure…” This, for me, is the real, true Zeitgeist.
Sometimes it’s funny how trends work. How there seems to be something in the air, a feeling. a mood… something you just can’t quite put your finger on. But it’s there. It happens everywhere. The Zeitgeist. Wikipedia explains the Zeitgeist as “the spirit of the times” or “the spirit of the age.”  This week in [...]
“wrapped up in string…” These (placecards) are a few of my favourite things.
My brother… my wee/big brother proposed to his beautiful girlfriend/ now “fiancé” on Sunday night- so we are extremely happy and excited today. Congratulations Colin and Bethany! I am so so proud, and I now get a sister too. Even more happiness! Here’s to a wonderful Engagement… (AND we promise we will make you the [...]
This is my first attempt to try using my iPhone for uploading directly onto the website- if this works I’m going to be pleased as punch!! I’m not gonna even say anymore as I’m so keen to find out and try this… The only thing I need to say if it does work though, is [...]
Yesterday we finally got our new i Mac to take home to the studio and I am so in love with it right now. It’s SOOOO fast! *thanks gran and grandpa (and American Aunty with a fondness for Vegas!)
The Glasgow Girls Wedding Fayre in Pollokshields Burgh Hall will definitely go down as a firm favourite on our wedding scene expereince so far. We had such a lovely day there on Sunday and we want to thank all involved for making it such an enjoyable day. The last time Jack and I were there, [...]
This week is turning into a bit of an Apple Revolution for us. After having my little brick of a phone for way longer than most,this week we have decided the time has come to join the iphone gang and, while we’re at it- get a brand new imac for the studio too. I am [...]
“Hello” 2011… Happy New Year! …what treats do you have in store for us all I wonder?
We would like to wish all our lovely friends, family, customers and newlyweds a very love-filled, fun-filled, ”WONDER”ful Christmas time!!! With all our gold foiled love this Christmas- (as you can see it even made it to our Christmas Tree! Hopefully by next year, to yours too as e.y.i.love continues to develop our Stationery range. (Note to self: A [...]
This year Scotland has went a bit crazy with our winter weather and mass snow fall caused absolute chaos with our transport. It’s been the topic we’ve all been talking about as the whole of Glasgow, Edinburgh and everywhere in between came to a complete standstill last week. Even our transport minister has resigned it was [...]
INFLUENCERS FULL VERSION from R+I creative on Vimeo. I just think this is absolutely amazing, inspiring and more amazing.
Congratulations to all of the team at ”i heart. GLASGOW” who have worked so hard in creating the first ever issue of the magazine. It looks amazing and we are so delighted to be part of it! If you haven’t picked up your copy yet, you can view the whole thing online. Just click above and [...]
The moment we all, (as in the Great British public- and most certainly the memorabilia-makers) have all been waiting for! Massive CONGRATULATIONS to the prince and his beautiful bride to be. Plates, cups and sugar bowls on sale only hours after their engagement! This may be a year of wedding madness… it may go a little crazy, [...]
Some things are just too cool for words… Love Typography Love
Yesterday e.y.i.love was out on show again, this time at the West End Wedding Show in Glasgow’s beautiful Oran Mor. (a venue which Jack and I are more familiar with for gigs than for weddings- but what a beautiful wedding venue it makes!) Thank you so much to everyone who came to see us there. [...]
I would love to work in this room. This is like a mass of inspiration and loveliness for me… although it’s not actually a studio at all. This is someones home ranch/wedding venue. How amazing is it? I don’t think we have many ranches around Glasgow (although there is the stables at Pollok Country Park [...]
Last week we were in London, and this is a little medley of pictures and inspirations from our trip. I’m not as good with words as I am with pictures, so I hope I do everything justice here. It was just one of those weeks that was amazing from start to finish. We visited the [...]
HUGE big apologies from to anyone who may have caught a virus from our site over the past couple of days. We were completely hacked by a giant virus circulating the blogging world and we are so sorry to anyone who may have been affected by this. I really hope a big fix it will [...]
I like Mondays. a. They are straight after the weekend and b. They are great inspiration hunting days. Following from the weekends enquiries, this is generally when I have some time to get really excited by some of the gorgeous wedding inspiration girls send me. Pink, black, white and gold chanel inspired wedding stationery is where [...]
I love Glasgow. It’s our city and our home and biased as I may be, I just proper love it. Even in its grey rainy state like it is today… there’s always a sparkle. Like the top postcard of an old Glasgow Herald, there’s always colour bursting out from somewhere and Saturday in the city was [...]
Trust me… this is the best kept secret (for your lips) you can find. Waiting for you at the top of Buchanan Street (if you’re a glasgow girl) Six quids worth of pure conditioning, colourful gorgeousness. Every bride-to-be/girl should have one! www.korres.com
Just thought I would share this wee beauty of a song on a Friday afternoon… perfect listening for designing the tree inspired wedding invitations to!
Thank you so much to everyone who came along to see us at the Royal Concert Hall Wedding Show! We had an absolute blast and loved meeting you all. In true e.y.i.love wedding show style, we managed to find ourselves placed right next to one of the most amazing cake makers glasgow has ever met! (more about [...]
Today we are off to set-up our stand at The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for the Scottish Wedding Show this weekend. This will be the biggest show for us to date so we are very excited and a teeny wee bit nervous (but I quite like nerves anyway cause they make you realize stuff’s important [...]
One of my absolute favourite things about designing wedding stationery is getting to find out about each couples personality, style, likes/ dislikes and infusing this into all of their wedding stationery! It’s like I get taken on a little visual journey of their favourite things… and the best thing about it- is just how different [...]

Martha’s site is full of tips and idea’s to make your wedding absolutely gorgeous with just a wee pinch of creativity. Have a look here for some downloads [...]
Mark and Carley were married on Saturday over in Carley’s Canadian homeland. We have seen a few snaps (thanks facebook/ Jodi) and they both looked so incredibly beautiful and full of love and happiness. We cannot wait for the Scottish wedding celebration in 2 weeks time in the Lorne Hotel, which we had the pleasure of [...]
Colourful. Fun. Genius. Man. Artist. Printer. Inspiration. www.mikeperrystudio.com
(if only my bicycle looked as pretty as this one) I do have a complete new obsession with super pretty bikes! When we were in Zagreb, our friend Tommy bought the most amazing vintage bike for Andreja at the best flea market I have ever been to. Its like a massive outdoor gypsy-lovers paradise, where [...]
Well… Croatia was the best!!! We had such an amazing time on our first sunshiney married holiday! This band filled our holiday days with much happiness and continue to do so as we return to our slightly greyer shores here in Glasgow. Their genius lyrics, ”Home is whenever I’m with you” sum up everything I think [...]
We are off to Croatia to have some holiday fun in the sun- and are ridiculously excited about this! If you have any enquires or would like to email us when we are away- please do. You will probably receive a little “We’re on holiday” automated response- but we will read/ respond to everything on [...]
100 Layer Cake is a favourite place of mine to look and find all sorts of creative treats and inspiration for the most amazing weddings! Girls- if you haven’t checked their blog out before- follow this link and be prepared to get a little excited as you find many wonderful ideas and inspirations for your [...]
Sometimes a picture can speak a thousand words to me. Sometimes a song does. This song… this band, who bring their music to us “with the passion and pride of an old-fashioned, much-cherished, family business,” (like e.y.i.love!) just blow me away. So, dance a little crazy and have a good think about their lyrics, “where [...]
I have spent the last few days working to the new sound of this beautiful masterpiece from Hillsong Live. It is the most gorgeous album with equally gorgeous artwork which I could look at all day long. It reminds me of the work of one of my favourite designers/ illustrators/ makers of gorgeous things from the [...]
found here in the diary of one of my favourite fashion photographers, Terry Richardson. Not only does he snap cool people and cool clothes… but just cool stuff he sees out and about on the streets. and this is my no.1. “Spread Kindness to Everyone…” Beats the 44 any day of the week.
from two of our very favourite local shops on a sunny Saturday morning… Enid Reid Flowers has a lovely new shop which we are lucky enough to overlook from our kitchen window. Enid is so incredibly lovely and does the most beautiful, stylish floral design… perfect for peonies and perfect for your wedding girls!
This month, our vintage postcard “Save the Dates” have been featured in The Best Scottish Weddings magazine! Very excited. Very glossy. e.y.i.love is hot-off-and-in- the Press for Spring/Summer 2010!
Beautiful Save the date inspired by our friends wedding at the Seamill Hydro. Such a beautiful setting needs a gorgeous save the date, perhaps this may create some ideas….
To all the Father’s, Dad’s, grandpa’s, papa’s and to all the ones of the future… A very Happy Father’s Day to you! Our family had a very happy father’s day yesterday enjoying the blazing sunshine (Thank you God!!) with a picnic at Kelvingrove park and some unexpected Lindt Fondue! Us kids from Scotland forget the [...]

Aren’t these the most amazing footstools you have ever seen? For a girl who’s ambition was to own a “pom pom store” (?) for the first decade of my life… these make me smile. I think there may just be a space right at our window waiting for one of these.
These are our 2 printing presses which we finally had fully up and running yesterday… and I LOVE them!! I can now do all of our printing with our very own machines! As much as I will miss my teacher, John of foilednapkins.co.uk (he has been to me what Mr. Miyagi was to Danielson in Karate Kid ) but I am also extremely [...]
This is most definitely my last post for the day… but- how utterly GORGEOUS is this “eye-candy” I especially LOVE it, not only because it is possibly the sweetest looking thing and it has a pink love heart (which i have a slight obsession over, as anyone who has ever laid their eyes on any [...]
Thought I would just share this little sweet delight of a Wedding Cake from Martha Stewart. Girls if you haven’t checked her site out for all your wedding stationery ideas and inspirations, I’d suggest heading here now (if you have a spare hour or two to be lost in wedding intoxication excitement)
Today we are Celebrating Marriage as many miles away, on the other side of the world, our very dear and lovely friends, Sarah and Craig are Celebrating their Wedding Day! We send them all the love in the world, for today and for their forever together… HAVE THE BEST DAY SARAH & CRAIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE LOVE [...]
How utterly gorgeous is this Envelope style purse from Yves Saint Laurent. Coveting slightly as an Envelope for your Wedding Stationery anyone?!
This morning I have been working on the Order of Service for Sarah and Craig’s Wedding and I had one of those moments when I realized just how much I actually LOVE what I do. I feel like there could be no better job in the world. I’m typing away… word after word about Love. [...]
We are completely in the middle of Birthday madness right now- for the past 3 weeks it has been a pretty continual celebration- so there has been so much fun and excitement which I will post the highlights of after this weekend… as we still have 2 major celebrations to go! However… as you will [...]
