Meet the Team
Mum of five year old Fin and two year old Romy, The Paper Wild's founder Hester is fanatical about all things pretty. She personally chooses each product stocked and designs our personalised and exclusive ranges. If it doesn’t pass the Hester test, it doesn’t reach the website...
It always makes me smile (and usually the whole office go aaaah!) when we see the beautiful personalised message requests for our Mum to Bee necklace. I love the thought of such a meaningful gift popping through the new mum’s letterbox and giving her a lasting reminder that she’s doing a wonderful job!
Jude, Magic Multi-Tasker
Mum of lovely Louis (aged ten), Jude was Hester’s first official (and much needed) employee not long after the launch of Wedding in a Teacup. She is a bright and bold designer as well as helping with the day to day running the websites.
Favourite product …
I love our self-care letterbox gift boxes. Such a thoughtful and fun idea to help lift someones spirits.
Holly, Packaging Queen
Holly lovingly packs up your goodies into pretty packages. She's a calm, green tea drinking, efficient extraordinaire who’s also marvellous mum to five year old Willow (Hester & Holly met at a pregnancy class!).
One of my favourite products is our build your own kids birthday boxes - a life-saver for that last minute gift idea that you know will be loved - and posted direct to their door too!
Gilly, Fantastic Flower Girl
If you order any of our seed favours, chances are that they’ve been stuffed by our flower-loving Gilly. Mum of Roman (aged seven), Gilly is the bee’s knees packaging our best-selling personalised floral favours.
I love our giant, bright and colourful balloon collection – they jazz up any celebration with minimal effort but huge impact!
Kate, Wordsmith Whizz
Hester’s mum Kate has been there from day one when Wedding in a Teacup started in an over-flowing spare bedroom. She’s taken a step back in recent years to concentrate on Granny duty (thanks mum) but is still the company wordsmith scribing blurbs and customer service emails.
Favourite product …
It has to be our wildflower seed packets. I’m mad about re-wilding and the designs are rather good too! A favour that helps make a difference by keeping our bees busy and bountiful.
