About

Leah works with small businesses, designers and artists within the wedding, creative and well-being industries, providing branding and web design,  graphic design and digital marketing solutions, as well as original illustration and artwork in a variety of mediums.

Leah's work is creative and contemporary, and she loves working with a diverse, amazing selection of outstanding and innovative companies based all over the UK.

Hello, I'm Leah!

I’m a designer and illustrator living in Leicester with my husband Joe, toddler Felix and our three dogs; Scratch, Colin and Bailey. I've worked in marketing for over 10 years, with a strong focus on weddings, events and hospitality, and have managed my own design studio for 8 of those years, formerly under the name Golden Apple.

Over the years I've worked with a huge variety of businesses including bridal boutiques, jewellery designers, restaurants, pubs and bars, florists, photographers, artists, tarot readers, authors and so many more. As the former owner of my own wedding stationery business and my previous experience working with wedding professionals I have a unique insight into the bridal and wedding industry that few designers and website builders are able to offer.

On a personal level I am a follower of yoga and spiritual practices such as mindfulness, healing and meditation so I also hugely enjoy projects of this nature and hope to create more magic with creatives and teachers within this field.

 

Other projects

I have a long-term contract as marketing manager with Miss Bush, one of the UK’s most well-known and well respected bridal boutiques, providing a host of services including web design and management, email marketing, graphic design and more. Working with this boutique is an incredible experience which offers valuable insight into the industry and helps me to stay up to date with the latest bridal trends.

I am also one of the founders and Head of Marketing and Design for Luxe Bride, a new initiative created to celebrate the best retailers and experiences throughout the British bridal industry, with a boutique finder and blog for brides and an exclusive members only area for luxury retailers.

More about me...

I love car boot sales, rummaging through charity shops, retro kitsch, mod style and mid-century interiors. I’m a keen Yoga practitioner, meditate regularly, have a bit of an obsession with the moon and have an increasing collection of varieties of tea. I also love old bookshops, being by the sea, being in the woods, good old fashioned picnics and getting stuck into a really good book. I love 90’s alt rock, brit pop, indie and northern soul, and binge-watching TV shows is my guilty pleasure. My favourite artist is Gustav Klimt.

Felix

In 2015 I became mama to Felix. He’s an awesome little dude with crazy curls who makes me laugh every day! We love to go on lots of fun adventures and travel all over the UK on the train. We also love to dance, do lots of arts and crafts, work on our allotment, and spend as much time outside as we can exploring nature.

Joe

Joe is my husband, best friend and IT man. He's a full time web developer and works with me occasionally on anything particularly clever or tricky that you might like applying to the site. He doesn't get involved in the design side of things so you'll never hear from him, but just know that he's always there in the background ready to offer any technical support that might be needed!

The Boys

We have three dogs; Scratch, Colin and Bailey. Scratch is a funny and bossy Border Terrier/Jack Russel, Colin a crazy bouncy Whippet and Bailey is a scruffy Yorkshire Terrier. These guys keep me company whilst working from home and they’re always ready for play or a cuddle when I need a break.
