Oh hi there! I’m Rachel, the face behind The Capston Second. Wine lover and disco dancing queen, I also happen to be incredibly organised and a wedding super fan.

Why The Capston Second?

Well the business name was inspired by this sketch by the late great Victoria Wood.


I love to help couples in any way I can to put together their dream day. Whether that’s a one off planning session to work through your budget or being there on the day to ensure everything runs smoothly, my services are totally flexible and more affordable than films starring J-Lo would have you believe.

I will make the whole process smooth, stress-free, and most importantly of all, FUN. I can be involved as much or as little as you would like, from a two hour session to get you started to full support along the whole of your wedding planning journey.


Having been in the events industry for 10 years and supporting my amazing couples for four years, I can use my experience and contacts to make sure your wedding planning is as stress free and most importantly FUN as possible.

Starting out organising high-profile galas, charity balls and fundraisers for charities, I’ve worked with celebrities and sports stars, including the British Olympic Association, Bradley Wiggins and Jonny Wilkinson. Such large-scale projects were challenging and exciting, but nothing quite matches the magic of a wedding day coming together. I always wanted to create unique, personalised events - so I set up The Capston Second in 2015 and have been putting my experience to good use making my wonderful couples’ ideas a reality ever since.
