The memories of our wedding day are with us! What a great day!Sent on 02/12/2017
Thank you for supporting us. You were instrumental in making our day a special one. Your advice and spot-on judgment helped make our wedding day stress-free. Several of our friends commented on how our wedding and reception were elegant yet relaxed, warm, and joyful.
You were essential to making that happen and we couldn’t have asked for more! Your advice — based on your professional experience, judgment, and having taken the time to get to know us — resulted in wonderful options to include our eventual photographer, our DJ, and our amazing baker of not one but three cakes. You allowed us to be guests at our own wedding! It was a joyous and stress-free day, and you worked with our budget in mind, which was important as we ended up with double the originally estimated guests!
If anyone considering engaging An English Rose for wedding or event planning would wish to speak to references, please share our email and cell phone numbers. We would be happy to speak with them.

Rachel was an absolutel delight to work with! So professional, so organized, so flexible and very knowledgeable! She made our wedding fun, elegant and stress-free!! I live in Vancouver,BC and the wedding was in Montreal, QC. I would not have had the beautiful, elegant wedding I had without Rachel. She was my angel! I would HIGHLY recommend you use her. Best decision I made...aside from marrying my Husband :)Sent on 07/07/2017

Hiring Rachel was the best wedding decision that we made leading up to our special day. From helping us choose the perfect vendors to successfully executing every last detail on the day of the wedding, Rachel made sure that our vision came to life flawlessly. With the wedding in her hands, we were able to enjoy every moment with our family and friends without stress or worry, and our entire party had an amazing time as a result. Rachel's professionalism, kindness, flexibility, and level of organization were unparalleled, and she was always available for us when we needed planning advice. We would strongly recommend An English Rose to any couple looking to plan the perfect wedding - Rachel and her team really go the extra mile.Sent on 13/02/2017

“I had the honour with working with Rachel and her team for our wedding on August 20th, 2016. We had approximately 6 months to plan our wedding and Rachel made every aspect run so smoothly. With such a short timeline she found us a wonderful venue and recommended top of the line additional vendors. She listened to our needs and wants and made our wedding day extra special. From the invitations, to the flowers, DJ, photographer, wedding cake and even the church, she reviewed every single detail making sure that all was perfect. Having Carly onsite really helped ease all of our stress and allowed us to have a reference person to depend on.Sent on 12/02/2017
Rachel and Carly....thank you from the bottom of my heart. I couldn't have done it without you and feel very honoured that I was able to work with you. I married the most perfect man...and you gave us the most memorable day of our lives. The details were tended to and you listened to my wants and needs over the past couple of months. You provided the best customer service a girl can ask for. I am thrilled that I met you and hope that we stay in touch.”

Company Owner & Wedding Planner
Never one to sit still Rachel has been planning and organizing since the day she could walk and talk! It was no wonder she started her career in Hotel Management working at London’s finest ‘Park Lane Hotel’ on Piccadilly. She soon progressed and by the time she was 21 she was already heading up Banqueting divisions in London & South Africa!
Rachel moved into a Corporate Career after having her daughter, working in Human Resources and heading up departments of 100+ staff and managing external vendors which has given her both management and negotiation skills, which come in very handy when working with Wedding Vendors.
It was important for her to be a professionally qualified Wedding Planner and she achieved ‘highest honors’ in gaining her Diploma in Bridal Consulting, as well as holding the title of ‘Professional Bridal Consultant’ with the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC). In addition she is certified with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada, and in January of 2011 along with 3 other great Montreal Wedding Planners they founded the Association of Montreal Professional Wedding Designers – creating a platform and raising the profile of ‘professional’ Montreal wedding planners.
So some things you may not know about Rachel… she's British, born close to Windsor Castle on the outskirts of London and moved to Montreal in 2003, she is related to ‘Sir Stafford Cripps’ who was the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer to Sir Winston Churchill… She absolutely adore's Reuben’s Smoked Meat Poutine, she loves to sing – but sadly can’t and one day she would love to take a course in becoming a ‘Sommelier’.
Second Wedding Planner
A native of Québec, Chris has had a very successful career throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and North America where he lead very large corporate departments on a global scale at senior Management level, overseeing very large strategic projects and budgets. This is great because his background gives him an amazing level of expertise to manage events and to surpass client`s expectations in planning the biggest event of their lives!
Having lived in so many places for 20 years especially in Hyderabad India, Casablanca Morocco and London UK it has allowed him to develop a keen eye for design, colour and style. Being an avid photographer, travelling the world has opened new creative horizons and allows him to see things differently.
It was also important to him to increase his knowledge in the Wedding Industry, therefore he also became a `Certified` Wedding Planner through the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada and licensed to perform civil marriages across the province of Quebec. His knowledge of the wedding industry coupled with his project management skills and vendor relationships makes him a very calming support resource that exceeds thier client’s expectations.
Things you don’t know about Chris… He is a Watercolour artists and loves to paint whenever he can, in addition to increasing his skills in woodworking. Rachel & Chris built a Log Home in the Eastern Township called “Coombe Lodge” named after the very special “Coombe Abbey” in England where Rachel and Chris were married. He also loves ‘spicy’ food and is continuously searching for a restaurant who can satisfy his palette!
