Can you manage to get a shot of one in the making ?

It could look terrific with a quill pen and various bottles of calligraphy ink in an assortment of colours

Good idea.
If you can't say something nice about Pentax, you won't say anything at all.

Apparently.

Not sure if she uses a quill - when I used one for a bit I found it a pain because the nib isn't strong (and it's scratchy) and you have to keep dipping the bloody thing in the bottle - uneven ink flow yuck.

Depth of field might be an issue if you're adding objects like that especially if the quill is in someone's hand upright.
... just another middle-aged guy with a hobby. I have an extreme macro learning site at extreme-macro.co.uk - Pentax-centric, your feedback and comments would be appreciated!

hmmm - think you misunderstood me a bit

Try this

A card showing the beginnings of the wedding Invitation - possibly even stopped mid-word

Beside it an open bottle of ink [ pretty wee bottle please ] with a saucer to act as pen rest, with a quill pen with a wet nib on it . Near to hand a selection of little bottles of beautifully coloured inks .

That way no human needed - just a still life set up

... glass bottles with different inks in would look fantastic lit from behind...

I always knew you were an artist Emily, it shows in your photos but your calligraphy is superb. Your work will look just great on the website but I agree with MikeW, the writing needs to be very clearly defined. I don't know if its a matter of lighting or contrast but I accept the very nature of the delicate artwork rules out harsh contrast.
