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 event or full weekend celebration) 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.
We truly believe that wedding planning should be an enjoyable part of the journey, and do our utmost to provide the guidance and support required to allow our couples to feel calm and in control, and to enjoy the process, not just the day itself.
Hello! I'm Rachel. Obsessed with flowers, wine and travel, I'm the face behind Mirabella Weddings (along with a wonderful team who help me on the day!).
By your side from day one, 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 just some of the other priorities in your life (work, family, friends, enjoying your engagement... all of the things that fill your already-busy lives!).
Having juggled working long hours in London whilst planning my own wedding, I really do understand the tricky position faced by so many couples 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 and appreciated detail and design, but who could offer a genuine, down-to-earth solution, without the wedding fluff. In essence, I wanted to celebrate our vows in front of all our family and friends with good food, good wine and a good party (with a healthy dose of contemporary style thrown in for good measure, because it's got to look amazing too, right?!). And so, Mirabella Weddings was born...
After almost a decade 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 major global brands to planning stylish celebrations for fun-loving couples. Safe to say I've never looked back!
Since launching, I've worked with couples from around the globe to carefully craft and deliver their dream day and have planned weddings at some of the UK's top wedding venues, as well as destination weddings spanning both Europe and further afield. I pride myself on providing a down-to-earth yet detail-driven experience - providing each and every couple with all the honesty, knowledge and support they need throughout to deliver the ultimate celebration.
Whilst I love a good spreadsheet and enjoy nothing more than getting creative and working up a beautiful wedding design, the main reason I do what I do is, quite simply, because of the people.
I am very fortunate in getting to work with some really rather amazing couples who I can share a lot of laughs with along the way. I always feel incredibly privileged to be entrusted in leading one of the biggest days in a couple's lives and never take this responsibility lightly, working hard to go above and beyond and provide a truly personalised service. I'm a big believer that no two weddings should ever be the same, which is why I always take great care to really get to know each of my couples so we can weave in their story throughout, creating something which represents them through-and-through.
If you like what you see and think we could be a good fit, why not get in touch? I'd love to meet for a drink (any excuse for a cocktail or two, right?!) and hear about you and your plans.
