I’m Rachel Waring.
Wedding stylist, maker, cat cuddler, glitter thrower and Buffy watcher.
Your wedding should be all about YOU and your own personal love story. It's such an exciting time, but (spoiler alert) weddings can be hard work. There are so many opinions, to-dos, decisions.... and what even is a mood board anyway!?
Let's face it, the wedding industry is full of noise, nonsense and (dare I say it) chair covers!! All you want is to reflect your own cool personal style on your big day, but it can be so hard to find exactly what you're looking for in a sea of lace and burlap.
Whether you are a DIY queen or a craft-aphobe, all you need is a wedding bestie to help you through it all, and that's where I come in.
As a wedding stylist, I love helping couples realise their wildest design dreams and tell their love story; whether that’s through personalised place cards, a cheeky cake topper or a venue full of paper flowers.
The best bit? You can work with me at any stage of your wedding planning process. I know that everyone has different needs, so my services range from an inspiration session where we can talk themes and design, to the full shebang including set up on your big day. If you are more of the DIY persuasion, you can also order my decorations, stationery and paper flowers on an a la carte basis through my shop.
- I have never had a grown up job. I originally trained as a set and costume designer and worked in theatre in London. That's where I learned my styling skills and also my best super power, stretching a budget!
- Emma is my middle name, not my business partner (unfortunately, I'd love an extra me to help out!)
- For our own wedding, my hubs Jake and I made a ribbon canopy that totalled over 4.5km of ribbon! I'm nothing if not ambitious.

Where are you based and what areas do you serve?
I'm based in Derbyshire, and I can offer my in person styling services throughout the Midlands and London. Not from these places? Don't worry! All the products in my shop ship worldwide, and the Inspiration Starter Sessions are online based, so we can still be wedding pals.
I have a specific idea that I'd like help creating for my wedding, can you make it for me?
Yes! As well as the items in my shop, I can make bespoke designs for you that can either be shipped or delivered and set up by me (depending on the size and your location). Prices for work like this is on a bespoke basis because everyone is different, so the best way to chat about your ideas is to drop me an email.
What's the difference between a wedding stylist and a wedding planner?
Good question! The two roles are very different, but can have cross-overs. A wedding stylist's main job is to design and realise a beautiful, cohesive look and atmosphere on your wedding day by working closely with you, your brief and your budget. Basically, I deal in the pretty aspects of your wedding day rather than "wedmin" (so I don't book venues, deal with caterers, coordinate the running of the day... etc.)
