I'm over the moon with how my place cards and handwritten vows turned out. All I can say is that they're beautiful absolutely stunning. I 100% recommend Kenaina's services!!

I really enjoyed the class. The location was fabulous and sweet little Jazzy stole the spotlight, of course :) But most of all I enjoyed the small size of the class, you could tell it was about quality over quantity and it gave you the opportunity to give personalised advise. I loved it.


Kenaina is a pleasure to work with. She is always very prompt and professional with her replies and was able to understand my vision perfectly. She did countless edits until the design was perfect! The process of working with her was so easy and effective. I'm very likely to recommend your services to my friends and family.

I worked with Kenaina on my business branding. Everything was great, very organised, professional and easy. The ideas were exactly what I’d wanted and it’s all working perfectly for me now. I love my stylish new look. I got everything I paid for and a few little bonuses, which meant the world to me.


I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the calligraphy worshop! I love the chance to meet new people and learn new skills so this was just perfect. I loved that it was such a relaxed vibe with lots of laughter and in a great comfortable setting like Stackwood. Kenaina really took time to explain things and to encourage us.


I love my place cards!! I honestly can't thank you enough for everything - patiently changing spellings several times, me badgering you about ETA, offering me so many colour options, your opinion on them and for being super responsive every time I reached out for anything. I also loved the sweet note you included, which really was the icing on the cake :) You are amazing to work with and produce an outstanding product. I am SO happy with this purchase and will definitely be recommending you to friends in need of calligraphy!
