Happy couple post a mark of happiness

Have your say

Bride-to-be Lynda Corkill wanted to make her big day so special even down to the wedding invitations.

She wanted to create a personalised postmark to go out in the post to the people who would be coming to the big event.

Isle of Man Post Office was approached by Lynda who was marrying Mark Smith.

The business says it specialises in bringing people together and the postmark design team jumped at the chance to go to Lynda’s aid.

Lynda sent a copy of her requirements to the team who then devised the ‘perfect solution’.

The postmark featured a heart containing both Mark and Lynda’s names along with the wedding date, and two stamps, one with an image of Peel Castle, where the couple got married, and the other was the recently released 2015 Year of the Sheep stamp to reflect their time spent together in Hong Kong.

Finally, it included the Chinese symbol of double happiness which represents two people becoming one, a very important image in Chinese weddings - a sentiment that transcends cultures.

The result was perfect. The invitations were sent to more than 100 guests primarily in the Isle of Man and UK as well as Asia in plenty of time for the guests to reply.

Lynda said: ‘I am very happy, the whole process was straight forward and hassle free, as well as value for money.

‘I told the postmark design team exactly what I was looking for and they delivered on this with a truly unique and personalised postmark that will be a keepsake for years to come of our special day.’

Postmark advertising starts from as little as £50.
