Design services bio.jpg

I know you're busy. I also know you have high hopes for your wedding and you can't do it all yourself.

ENTER: ME (probably with glitter in my hair and ribbons hanging out of my pockets). 

My bespoke design service is for the super cool couples that want something totally unique for their wedding day.

I can design all of the visual elements of your wedding, from your invitations and stationery, to decorations like backdrops and centrepieces, right down to the tiny details like favours and cake toppers.

You choose your unique wedding design cocktail.

Just want some place cards to match your theme? Or do you want me to take care of everything, so you can relax knowing your day will look super snazzy with minimum effort from you? I know every couple is different, so that's why I created a fun questionnaire to start off your booking process. You can choose what you're interested in from my master list of wedding design powers, just like ordering the best pizza ever, and that way you only pay for what you're getting, instead of a blanket fee. 

Then it's time for a chat.

Once you've filled out a questionnaire I offer free design consultations via phone/skype or in person, so we can chat all about the details and I can give you some of my first ideas and thoughts. 

After that I'll send you a quote.

Ahhhh scary! Except it's totally not, because I pride myself on reasonable prices, and my ability to work to your specific budget (I'm a total pro at stretching a budget - it's my background in theatre design). All of my pricing is bespoke to each couple, but if you'd like to see some examples of prices and customer case studies, I have a pricing guide here to get you started. 

The making begins!

Once you've approved your quote, it's time for you to relax and enjoy being engaged, and time for me to get to work. I will get busy making your amazing wedding design a reality, keeping you updated with picture proofs, emails and pep talks along the way (whenever you need me). 

Ready for THE BIG DAY

If you're local and you've opted for my on-the-day styling option then I'll be there to set up all of your exciting wedding goodies in person to make sure it all looks perfect. If you've gone for the shipping option, everything will arrive with you by post (best mail day EVER!) in plenty of time for your big day. 


You can have a look at what some of my previous couples have said about working with me here (I love them). Otherwise, if you're ready to take the next step:


Rachel is incredible! She has been so attentive throughout the entire process and a pleasure to liaise with. During our Skype consultation she was so interested in every little detail and had brilliant suggestions to complement our style. The style board that she sent through very promptly after the consultation captured our vision perfectly! Nothing is ever a hassle to Rachel and she is always just an email away. I would 100% recommend Rachel Emma Studio to anyone considering her for wedding design and styling :)

Rachel is amazing! We hired Rachel towards the beginning of our wedding planning as we had a rough idea of what we wanted, but didn’t know how to go about it. My husband and I are both keen Gin drinkers and knew we wanted to incorporate this somehow in the wedding without it looking like the morning after a party! Rachel came up with ideas of how we could include Gin subtly and yet with style. Our favourite idea was to have the table names as makes of Gin, using old Gin bottles, with fairy lights in, as the centre pieces. She used copper foiling to make the table names, seating plan and all signs, creating an elegant balance throughout the venue.
She took our own ideas and crafted them into wonderful creations.
Rachel was there the day before the wedding to make the bridesmaids bouquets and the mens button holes (which were fresh) and generally help set everything up; we could not have done it without her! She helped make our Wedding unique to us with such elegance and polished professionalism.
