The 25 year old fashion design student at the University of Wolverhampton loves stationery so much that once she heard about National Stationery Week, she knew she just had to get married in it!
That at least was the official story put out on the first day of the London Stationery Show on Tuesday 1 April, supported by photographs of the weekend wedding at Wolverhampton’s St Peter’s Church. It was however all a carefully orchestrated April Fool!
Rachael and her husband Sean (her real life boyfriend) spent the afternoon at the exhibition visiting stands and being photographed by exhibitors and visitors, and were special guests at the presentation of the 2014 Stationery Awards at the after show party. No one suspected anything until the truth was revealed the following day on Facebook and Twitter.
“Fashion meets Function at the London Stationery Show” says organiser Chris Leonard-Morgan. “Rachael’s beautiful dress shows how personal and versatile stationery is!”
Next year’s London Stationery Show takes place on Tuesday 28 – Wednesday 29 April 2015.
