"Marie-Claire has been a dream to work with on all my wedding stationery from beginning to end. She is incredibly talented, her attention to detail and of course her calligraphy which is why I booked her in the first place. My wedding stationary is out of this world incredible and she brought my vision to life. The quality of the paper, booklets and card is excellent. I couldn't recommend more you will not be disappointed."

"Collaborating with Calligraphy by MCW has been a sheer joy. Marie-Claire’s attention to detail is simply second to none, while her style is luxurious and elegant with a contemporary feel. Her innate talent celebrates authentic Irish craftsmanship at its core and as a women in business, we admire her greatly and can’t wait to see where the brand goes”.

"Marie-Claire turns words into art.

I recently wrote a poem after the loss of a loved one and although I was hesitant to share something so close to my heart, I’m so glad I did. Marie-Claire was incredibly understanding and treated my piece with such care and sensitivity, she helped me figure out what I wanted. The finished product absolutely blew me away, it was perfect. I cannot gush about her enough."

Marie-Claire offers an exceptional level of customer service, very professional and goes above and beyond. The product is beyond amazing, top quality, highly bespoke and exceptionally stylish in design. My invitation suite honestly took my breath away. I could not have asked for a nicer wedding supplier this year.

Marie Claire was professional, helpful and a pleasure to work with. Marie-Claire created the perfect samples, first attempt, no changes required. The full process was flawless making it an enjoyable and easy experience! I have continued to order presents and other pieces from her. Each time, I have been blown away by her incredible talent and her ability to capture what was in my mind’s eye. I highly recommend Marie-Claire to anyone hoping to create a unique, thoughtful and personalised gift or even something for yourself!

I signed up to Marie-Claire’s beginners course last year and I loved it so much I signed up to the improvers course immediately afterwards. Marie-Claire is a great tutor, she has a calm and methodical approach, making each part of the course easy to follow and so enjoyable. The feedback she provided on progress was detailed and constructive, helping me to improve even further. I haven’t stopped practicing regularly since last year and am so inspired by Marie-Claire’s beautiful work. I would 100% recommend her workshops!
