The Sewing Alchemist passionately believes in making every special occasion beautiful and none more so than wedding days.
Not only has The Sewing Alchemist been featured in Rock n Roll Bride Magazine for her Intricate Floral Wreath but she has also created personalised pieces for hundreds of weddings as well as gifts for happy couples for over three years.
Ellen is passionate about creating beautiful, bespoke keepsakes that reflect each unique wedding day. She works closely with couples to create designs that capture their special day and ensures that they are completed to the highest possible standard.
"Being featured in Rock n Roll Bride magazine was a dream come true and I love having this article on display in my office."
Ellen works with the happy couple to create the perfect pieces to compliment the day from the very beginning. After initial contact Ellen can create mood boards to inspire you and encapsulate your ideas. Inspiration can come from invitations, floral arrangements, colour schemes and so much more!
Setting the scene
In 2018 she created a fourteen piece set for the Ivey Wedding, themed around florals and cycling that encapsulated the bride and grooms interests in a beautiful display.
The set contained table centre pieces featuring well known cyclists names and florals in their wedding colours. There were also pieces that contained a meaningful quote and their new married name that could be displayed in their home after the wedding. Ellen also created two new pieces for the couples special day in the form of a 'Mr' and 'Mrs' hoop for their professional photos and head table.
"The Ivey Wedding is quite possibly one of the most exciting and biggest projects I have been a part of."
"My now husband wanted to name our wedding tables after cyclists. My mission was to find a pretty way to do this. I found The Sewing Alchemist on Instagram and I fell in love with Ellen's work straight away! I sent Ellen a private message and she was lovely! We discussed a few options and within days she had sent me over examples of all 11 table names. I loved them and so did Andy. We can't thank Ellen enough for taking on our project- 14 hoops in total! Ellen kept us in the loop all the way through working on the project, with regular photo updates. The day the package arrived was a special day, each hoop had been packaged so beautifully and with so much care. I'm sorry to say I didn't wait for Andy to get home from work before I opened them- I couldn't, I was too excited! Each hoop looked amazing on our wedding day and we had so many compliments on them. We highly recommend The Sewing Alchemist and we will definitely be ordering more hoops in the future! Thank you again Ellen."

In 2017 Ellen was fortunate enough to be approached to create a piece that would be used in a marriage proposal. Ellen worked closely with the customer to create the perfect design that not only would be used for the proposal itself but for the wedding afterwards and as the perfect keepsake in their home.
The embroidered piece held the ring at the time of the proposal and could then hold a Polaroid of the couple for the big day.
"It was probably one of the hardest secrets I've ever had to keep but seeing this amazing photo of the happy couple made it 100% worth it!"
