My Muses - Annabel from

Welcome to the next installment of 'My Muses', a regular little feature that I'm adding to my website blog featuring people who I have worked with and who have inspired me over the years!

Annabel came to me in January to discuss a new look for her fabulous vintage wedding and style journal at With our shared passion for art deco styling and glamour I knew straight away that together we were going to create some exciting artwork.

I’m Annabel and my passion is writing about all things glamorous, vintage and extremely very gorgeous in the world of weddings! So much so, I set up my own blog to wax lyrical about it all every day at

I discovered Charlotte early in 2010, when I was researching for Love My Dress. It was via a Facebook link as I recall. I was thinking about approaching an Illustrator at the time, to work on some branding for Love My Dress, and as soon as I saw Charlotte’s illustrations I knew I’d found my gal – I was smitten!

I have been extremely impressed with Charlotte’s approach to handling a commission. I probably overloaded the poor girl with all kinds of ideas and information in the beginning, but Charlotte was able to quickly and effortlessly latch on to my vision and within a few days had created something I was in love with. It didn’t take long to tweak the original design concept into something that worked perfectly for my Blog and now, I’m receiving regular comments and feedback on the fabulous illustration on Love My Dress .

Thanks to Charlotte, I feel my Blog really stands out and has individual style and appeal.
I have since introduced Charlotte to several contacts in the wedding industry who have all fallen in love with her designs {what a fabulous wedding gift a Charlotte Thomson illustration would make!) and I continue to work with Charlotte on branding Love My Dress. I’m so very pleased I discovered this amazing talented Artist ~ who it turns out is also a super lovely lady too.

I couldn’t recommend Charlotte enough to anyone.
