A personalised poem is like a portrait in words. It can sum up the essence of a person or a relationship and capture it; it can turn a treasured moment into an heirloom.
It might be a unique wedding reading, an unforgettable birthday present, or a touching remembrance of a loved one no longer with you. Whatever the occasion, I’ll work with you to create a poem that means the world.

“I had tears in my eyes when I read the finished poem”
“It’s so beautifully personal and unique… the perfect way to honour forty years of marriage and an incredible milestone. My parents were very touched when they received it, and it now proudly hangs on the wall.”
– Kerri Awosile
How it works
Get in touch and tell me about the occasion you’re looking to mark with a poem. You’ll receive a personalised questionnaire to fill in, with room to include as many specifics as possible. Tell me about memories, favourite things and important images you’d like me to include, as well as the overall feeling you’d like your poem to have. Do you want it to be bouncy and funny when read aloud? Do you want it to reduce people to tears? Should it be joyful, comforting, peaceful or something else entirely?
Using the information you’ve given me, I’ll get writing and will send you a draft of your poem within 2 weeks.
Let me know if any tweaks are required, and a second and final draft will be sent for your approval.
If you’ve selected the digital option, your finished poem will be sent to you as a PDF on a white background with dark text in a classic serif font. You can easily print, resize and display your poem however you choose.
I’m so happy to be partnering with talented modern calligrapher Grania O’Brien of Ink & Paper Design. If you’ve selected the luxe calligraphy option, your finished wording and chosen colour options (which you’ll find in your questionnaire) will be sent to Grania for her to work her inky magic.
Digital PDF Poem: £100
Luxe calligraphy poem (available for poems of up to 14 lines): £175
Please note that calligraphy poems will take longer to be delivered than digital pieces, and allow up to 6 weeks from approval of your wording.
