“Different”, charmingly rustic and able to be filled with love, our heart boxes certainly hit the spot with recipients. Customers have submitted many 5 star reviews on Etsy for these personalised wedding boxes. Once chock-a-block with wedding mementos, love letters, photographs or tokens of affection, it’s difficult to imagine a more treasured possession.

Okay, so what of “The Big Day” – that magical whirlwind of love, laughter, and maybe a few happy tears. Blink and (yikes!) you’re married already! And, then it’s party, party, party. The day whizzes by in such a blur that the bride is left grasping for memories, which is why she needs this impressively large wedding keepsake box.

From the obligatory ‘I do’ to the Dad Dancing disco and wedding cake covering kids’ faces, it’s all a treasure trove of memories. The happy couple won’t want to forget those moments, ever.

Gift this box so the bride and groom can tuck away the vows, the confetti, a corsage, hand posy, champagne cork, table name, goofy snapshots, the order of service, something borrowed or blue, a wedding invitation and much more.

Having this box full of memories, is a bit like boxing up a day’s glorious sunshine to enjoy forever. And, from time-to-time – maybe on an wedding anniversary – the happy couple will dig out your box, perhaps with a glass of bubbly in hand, and laugh and cry and remember the beginning of their “forever after”.

And, if your wife’s wedding memories are languishing in a shoe box under her bed, you might like to consider buying her this gift for a wedding anniversary present!


First off, choose from either the shabby chic white painted exterior with contrasting waxed interior or our novel “white grain” monotone finish all over. All finishes are skilfully hand-applied after your box is shaped by hand in our Amersham workshop.

Then decide what you’d like to say on your wooden wedding keepsake box. You have lots of space, but the lines are all different lengths, to follow the heart shape of the plaque. We can personalise the aluminium heart with your letter punched message as follows:-

  1. First Line comprising 22 characters maximum
  2. Second Line using 22 characters maximum
  3. Third Line of 20 characters maximum
  4. The last line is 18 characters maximum

These personalisation line character counts include spaces and punctuation marks.

Customers often include the name of the wedding venue, the wedding date, the obligatory Mr & Mrs plus the married name and a little good luck message from themselves.

When crafting your message, please include only A-Z, 0-9 and simple punctuation. It’s generally not a good idea to include keystroke emojis (like <3) because, once stamped, it is often not obvious what they are supposed to represent. Please don’t use the < > # () * symbols, as we simply don’t have the punches available to stamp those. Emoticons, graphics or special symbols (eg hearts) cannot be incorporated for the same reason.


These personalised wedding keepsake boxes are UK made in high quality faced plywood. Sturdy 9mm thick wood is used for the sides with the lid and base surfaces using 4mm.

The lid is hinged lid along the long edge at the back.

The white grain effect and shabby chic white paint finish and the wax inside are all done by us by hand.

Both styles of box have a horn clasp with an aged metal finish.

The shimmering stamped metal heart plaque is corrosion-resistant aluminium which has a ‘brushed’ finish

The plaque is not ‘perfect’ because this is not your average engraved wedding keepsake box. Your message is instead stamped with individual letter punches, which creates a bolder and more endearing effect. Our letter stamping is accurate but not faultless, so not like a printer or laser. Slight irregularities in stamping and imperfections in the aluminium add to the handmade charm of the box. It also complements the ‘weathered’ or shabby chic finish to the wood.

Please note the shade of waxed finishes, the shabbiness of paint effects and the patterns produced by our white grain finish do all vary. They are subject to the grain of the wood and its physical properties, as well as the variability of crafting your gift by hand here in the UK.

External dimensions are approximately:-

  • Width: 34.5cm
  • Depth: 20cm
  • Height: 10cm


Have your wedding keepsake box customised even more – have us add a luxury fabric lining into the base. This not only looks amazingly (ivory colour is an obvious choice for weddings!), but also protects all those irreplaceable wedding keepsakes from harm. This made-to-measure handmade and fitted fabric base pad costs just a few pounds extra, but transforms the box interior.


The most import thing about ordering is getting your wedding keepsake box personalised correctly. We don’t want any mistakes on your bespoke box, as these are very difficult to correct later on. And, nobody wants to have to live with a typo… forever.

Please choose your lines of text carefully. We recommend that you write out your personalisation on a computer or tablet with spell and grammar checking capabilities. If you’re using your phone, beware the dreaded and often incorrect autocorrect!

Also, you’d be surprised how many personalised messages end up with the wrong date (the wrong year is most common), a name spelled incorrectly or another error. Please do double-check everything before you submit your order to us.

After ordering, we suggest checking your confirmation email immediately, because it will show exactly what you have submitted to us. You should contact us straightaway, if you spot a mistake.


To meet our time-to-delivery guidance on these keepsake boxes, we aim to despatch your order within 1 working day. If you order on Friday after 10 am, then that’s on Monday.

Standard delivery (which is normally free) then takes 2 days typically, but this is not a guaranteed service, so allow longer. If your order absolutely must be delivered within two days – like because the Wedding Day is imminent – consider upgrading to our guaranteed service: Next Working Day delivery.

We want your gift to be the best they ever received, so please do contact us if you have special requests.
