At Mirabella Weddings, our style is very much one of laidback luxury - after all, it’s not just about how a wedding looks but how it feels. We want every wedding (whether it be a UK or destination wedding, a one-day celebration or full weekend affair) to effortlessly exude class and subtle sophistication – whilst providing an enjoyable, relaxed atmosphere for you and your guests to let your hair down and have the time of your lives, creating long-lasting memories.
I'm Rachel - the salted-caramel-obsessed, wine-loving, travelholic behind Mirabella Weddings...
Think of me as your wedding wing-woman. I am not only here to provide you with all the expertise and support you need to create an unforgettable day for you and your guests, but to also make your wedding planning journey as stress-free and enjoyable as possible, allowing you to focus your time on some of the many other things going on in your life (work, family, social lives, enjoying your engagement...that kind of thing).
Having juggled working long hours in London whilst planning my own wedding, I really do understand the tricky position that many of our couples face when trying to balance wedding planning with their own busy work and social lives - it certainly is no easy task.
When planning my own wedding, I struggled to find someone who really represented my style. I was overwhelmed with the amount of 'dreamy' and 'swoon-worthy' suppliers out there and really wanted someone who understood quality and style, but who could offer a genuine, straight-talking solution, without the wedding fluff. And so, Mirabella Weddings was born...
After over eight busy years working in London's advertising industry, I decided to put my passion, energy and creativity, as well as love for organisation and planning, into something new - transitioning from planning ad campaigns for global brands to planning stylish weddings and honeymoons for awesome couples. I've jumped from one planning career to another - but I love that weddings provide even more of a blank canvas to get creative.
When first starting out, I attended the prestigious Planning Redefined course and believe it's important to continue to invest heavily in continuous development to stay one step ahead. I've since attended courses specialising in the likes of modern marquee weddings, First Aid, and even flower arranging to enable me to swiftly handle any last-minute issues that might arise (yes, the planner within me likes to of course plan for all eventualities!).
Whilst I love getting creative and pushing the boundaries to transform a blank canvas into a perfectly executed experience packed full of personality, the main reason I do what I do is because of the people.
I am very fortunate in getting to work with some really rather amazing couples (which is lucky, because let's face it, the wedding planning journey is typically a rather long one and it helps if we all get along and can have fun along the way!). I always feel incredibly privileged to be entrusted in leading one of the biggest days in a couple's lives. I never take this responsibility lightly, working hard to go above and beyond and provide a personalised service that is flexible to each couple's wants and needs.
If you like what you see and think we could be a good fit, why not get in touch for a free consultation? I'd love to meet for a drink (any excuse for a glass of bubbles!) and hear about you and your plans.
