Hi, I'm Mark


I was born and raised in Manchester and I have been working in the design industry for 20 years working on all kinds of media. With a love for print, the name 'Frain & Grain' is derived from my surname 'Frain' and ‘Grain' represents the variety of textures which stationery is printed on. Frain & Grain was created to bring a luxurious and edgy style to the wedding industry.


Designing bespoke illustrations of the city and the Uk's finest wedding venues, which reflect my passion of design, with a love of dark tones and and metallic foiling Frain & Grain creates unique designs to capture the style and theme couples are looking to achieve for their wedding.

Frain & Grain has been featured in Rock My Wedding and within it's first year nominated for The Wedding Awards Regional Finalist, which proudly won 'Highly Commended Stationer of 2019'.

Frain & Grain also offer services to wedding industry professionals and businesses such as wedding organisers, planners, wedding venues, wedding photographers and more to help serve their clients with a luxurious edge.

Creating bespoke designs which are consistent from the moment a guest receives a Save The Date card to the moment they see your Table Settings is something you and your guests will always remember. Frain & Grain will create a design for your wedding that you will cherish it forever.

All my designs are completely unique and are printed on the finest materials, If you have any questions or would like to discuss your ideas in detail please get in-touch.
