ABOUT OUR FAMILY BUSINESS

A FIRM FAMILY FOUNDATION

Here at Handmade by Rose we are powered by only a few things - love, family and coffee! 

We set up our business because we are passionate about creativity and design, and because we saw a gap in the market for luxurious wedding decor items that were different to the rustic boho chic that has dominated the feeds of instagram for so long! 

As a husband and wife team, along with our very cheeky brand ambassador Harrison we set about building a business providing brides with modern, romantic and stylish decor using acrylics, metals and perspex. We love to make items which we know will make your decor really stand out on the big day, and more recently we have fallen in love with helping small businesses with laser printed and laser cut signage for their salons, studios and boutiques!

Meet Founder and Creator, Rosie

On a mission to find the perfect sign maker for my own wedding little over 3 years ago. I realised that there was a massive market in the UK not being provided for, with some really big trends I found on Pinterest.  Including wood and acrylic hand painted designs. Mostly coming from the USA & Australia.  Having fell in love I started my own journey to making my own signs for my big day.

My husband was so impressed with what I had managed, he encouraged me to start an Instagram account. Sharing my journey. I never expected the reaction it met so quickly. Soon I had an Etsy shop. After four months of being open the shop got so busy, I had to take a massive leap of faith. To leave my full-time job to go self-employed. And I have never looked back.

After one year of being open things where so busy my husband decided to sell his business to join me. We are now a husband and wife duo absolutely loving everything about what we are doing.

When we started our business we only had a few signs available for brides to purchase, and we have worked hard to build up a portfolio of products which will really enhance your overall wedding decor. In 2019 we invested in the business to add laser engraving and laser cutting to our ranges, and we are delighted with how popular our new products have been! 

Most of our welcome signs have always been handpainted by me, and I am constantly upskilling on the latest fonts and designs, so that you can have the latest trends for your big day. The latest trend for laser engraving and laser cutting is really growing in popularity and we love creating those new products. As a family run business we have always taken pride in ensuring that every order is carefully designed, created and despatched so that you have the highest quality of decor for your wedding. Over the coming months we will be introducing even more exciting new designs into our ranges, and we are moving to new premises with more space to create, the next big step for our business...

handmade by rose about us

Its all about love in our business...

We are Rosie and Steve. We met over a decade ago… after 6 years together Steve finally popped the question while on holiday in Vegas. 2 years of planning we had our perfect day in the summer 2018. With our gorgeous little boy Harrison by our side. We really enjoyed the whole wedding process… We can really apprieacte the dream of your big day and seeing it all coming to life.

As most couples do, we share lots of common interests. We became Veggie together little over a year ago, and really enjoy the journey and experience this has brought us. When we aren’t creating pretty wedding signage we really love to go out in the outdoors, going for walks and climbing are two big passions.

I would prob say our biggest love is Music and gigging. We both have mixed taste in music. But as gig buddies we tag on to each other’s preferred nights. We have seen so many bands/acts together, we even named the tables at our wedding after them.

We both have now found a massive passion in what Handmade by Rose is for us. We see more of our little boy now then we ever did, and we are so grateful for that. We have big expansion plans over the coming years. We are excited for the journey ahead…
