A bit about our business…

Why ‘Whispers’?

Perhaps it’s a bit pretentious to start with a quote. But this one below has always been a favourite of Sarah’s.

“To see a world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.”

William Blake

When we were thinking of a name for our business, we thought about the fact that we all live in an amazing world, full of sights, sounds and experiences. Some of them are small, quiet and easily missed, but no less wonderful. We decided that we wanted to listen to these ‘whispers’, then share them with you in words and pictures. So here we are!

Why a birch leaf in our logo?

It’s simple really. Birches are beautiful trees, great for wildlife, very photogenic, and we both love them. There can be so much beauty in little things, like a birch leaf, and that’s one of the things that Whispers is all about.

Sarah grew up in the shade of a magnificent birch tree, and the birch has always been a big favourite of Derek’s – he’s grown a birch at every home he’s owned. The leaf in our logo comes from the tree that grew in our garden, which he planted.


We work under the umbrella of Whispers from the wild Ltd, a private limited company. The company number is 8295343. We are the directors and shareholders.
