I’m Rachel, designer and maker of things for happy days. My purpose is to help YOU realise your wildest design dreams.
I am the one-woman show behind Rachel Emma Studio, a design business focused on making beautiful details and environments for weddings and happy days. I originally trained in Theatre Design at a drama school in London, and spent the next 5 years designing set and costumes for theatre, film and events. Through my work in the theatre industry, I finally realised that I’m happiest when designing things for real people instead of shows. After being trusted with the design of a friend’s wedding I was hooked, and now create bespoke wedding designs for lovely clients, and sell handmade stationery, decorations and details through my shop. I love helping couples let their personality shine through on their wedding day, which is the driving force behind everything I do.
Fun fact: I have never had a "grown-up" job. Freelancing and solo entrepreneurship is in my blood (along with a fair bit of glitter, probably) and through almost a decade of muddling through and making it work I have picked up quite a few tips along the way. I LOVE helping people in their pursuit of a more creative and fulfilling life - whether that's through teaching craft workshops or working one-on-one with aspiring creatives as they work out their business plans and dreams.
