"It can sound cliche to say your invitation sets the tone for the day," says Rachel McKenna owner and Chief Designer, 'but it is just so true! I work really closely with my clients to make sure that their stationery not only looks right within the style of their wedding but also that it works practically with their particular venue." It is this mix of Rachel's personal approach combined with her creative flair and practical experience which makes Love Story stand out from the crowd. "Attention to detail is one of the most important aspects of my job," say Rachel, "that, and making sure that all of my lovely couples feel their stationery truly reflects them and their love story."
Consultations are free and without obligation and are an ideal way to take on board the wealth of options and ideas that Love Story has to offer. If you can't see exactly what you're looking for don't worry, Rachel and here team can start from scratch to create something truly bespoke.
Love Story's designs cater for every style including vintage, contemporary, elegant, traditional, quirky, clean and modern, sparkly or subtle - all with those little unusual twists and a modern approach which ensures their stationery is always at the cutting edge of wedding stationery design.
