Stationery firm ‘hearts’ Bridgnorth!

A local wedding stationery business is celebrating entering its sixth year. Set up in 2012 by Lisa Forde, Bridgnorth-based Tree of Hearts is now a leading light in the wedding industry. Lisa says, “The industry is incredibly competitive, so with the added pressure, it can be difficult to succeed. We’re lucky to have developed a great and loyal customer base, an amazing team who create great products, and amazing support from the local community and other businesses. 

“My business has grown up in Bridgnorth, so it’s a huge part of who we are. The support from the community is fantastic! There’s a lot of love for small businesses such as my own.”

Lisa’s team are all women, which seems to have worked well: “Although I didn’t intend to hire an all-female team, the stationery business attracts lots of talented female applicants, and I decided I wanted to create a business which nurtures women and provides them with leading opportunities. Women have many natural skills that are brilliant for this industry, including creativity and passion.”
