01. Paper

Who could resist this chunky paper cut font?

Format: OTF

Kicking off our list is this charming Paper font made by Behance user Amy Cox. Every single letter has been cut out with real scissors to produce a quirky font complete with filled-in counters. With its resemblance to confetti shapes, this playful font will add a dash of personality to any wedding ceremony. Download it free for personal use from Cox's Behance page (affordable commercial licenses are available too, wedding businesses will be pleased to hear).

02. Limon

The complete Limon package includes 16 styles

Format: OTF

Thanks to its fluid shoulder shapes and squiggly lobes, Limon is a zesty font that would be perfectly suited to a spring or summer wedding. Hand-drawn by Sabrina Mariela Lopez, this detailed font took 18 months to design. The hard work has paid off, though, as Limon looks stunning. The 16 fonts can be yours to download for £128.99.

03. Blend

We think the Blend creators might be coffee fans...

Format: OTF

In the world of coffee, a blend is a mix of beans that work together to produce a balanced taste.

Made up of 21 fonts, you can download Blend for £114.99.

Even this font's name is wishing the happy couple all the best

Format: OTF

Speaking of versatile fonts, the Goodlife family includes seven different styles that are "optimised to feel not just like a font but like true hand lettering".

Format: OTF, TT

Looking for a script font that's stylish but still has its feet on the ground? Meet Felt That, a family that was hand drawn with a bullet-tipped marker by designer Jess Latham.

09. Bambusa Pro

This font owes its name to a bamboo pen

Format: OTF

Described as a "sturdy expressive modern calligraphy family", this set of four fonts has a unique ink-stroke aesthetic that comes from the Bambusa bamboo pen that designer Hanneke Classen used to make it.
