Hey, I'm Rachel!

Poet, wife & mum

Want to hear how I turned personalised poetry in my living room into show-stopping weddings for hundreds of couples?

Grab a cuppa and listen in my lovely.

Equipped with an unblemished, linen white book, poised with a brand new rose gold-plated pen and ever so slightly enamoured by the new sparkly accessory that had just weaved its way snuggly onto my left hand, I was about to dip my toe into the teal-tinted sea of wedding planning

It all seemed so whimsical and perfect as I started swimming in colour palettes, stationery suites and cake flavours. My pastel-themed Pinterest board was immaculate. My inner Monica Geller was completely absorbed in utter deliciousness of wedding organisation.

Sounds like the dream, right?

I became so immersed in bouquet ribbons and sweetheart necklines, that the ceremony portion of my wedding had been swept under the rug like cookie crumbs.


An imaginary fairy must’ve waved their wand above my unbrushed, side-swept hair that day, because I had a true ‘AH-HA’ moment.

Having a wedding without a show stopping ceremony would be like having a Victoria sponge cake without jam and cream.



I pulled out my well-thumbed notebook (allocated to messy handwriting only) and began to write our very own, bespoke ceremony poem  about our baby daughter, Willow.


The poetry bug had bitten me.


I then went on to write a rhyming bride’s speech for myself, a personalised poem about each individual wedding guest to use as favours on the table AND poem gifts for my bridesmaids and mum!

My rhyming speech was a hit, our ceremony poem will always be remembered and our guests laughed and cried at their personalised favour poems!

I figured other couples might like a taste of unique rhyme on their wedding day, so personalised poetry in my living room turned into Veil and Verse. Now I create wedding ceremony poems, speeches, favour poems, birthday gifts and keepsake cards for all occasions.
