A Day in the Life of an Events Coordinator
KAT
Kat's energy, creativity, and sense of humour translate to events planned with heart, dedication, and fun.
WHAT'S A REGULAR MORNING FOR YOU?

My mornings usually start with a rousing chorus of ‘Muuuuuuuummmm, I can’t find my shoes/school bag/ toy of varying descriptions.’ Followed by a mad dash to remove whatever food substance has been unwittingly transferred to my five-minute clean work outfit. Once everyone is safely deposited at school and nursery, I am off to Glenfall House to start my workday.

A regular morning will probably start with an all-important cup of coffee and a catch up on what has happened at Glenfall the previous day, talking to the other members of the team and assessing what the priorities for the day are. I will usually be found answering emails or setting up the venue, if we have a wedding that day.
WHAT ARE YOUR MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES? 

My main responsibilities are to ensure that the guests that have booked with us have all the help that they need planning their wedding or event. It is my job to help with any aspects of the planning process that they need and to make sure that they are happy and confident that their wedding or event at Glenfall will go seamlessly.

I will be making sure that I am in contact with the couples/hosts to discuss ideas, offer advice and suggestions, recommend suppliers and to do everything I can to tailor the event to suit their specific requirements.

On an event day, I will be on hand to help with anything that may be needed. I will make sure guests have found their rooms, that everyone is in the right place at the right time and that the Bride and Groom have the best day they possibly can.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE A PARTICULAR DAY? 

On non-event days, I start by checking my emails and the office noticeboards. We have really great visual timetables of what is happening when, so we are always up to date with what events are coming up and where each couple are in the planning stages of their wedding.

I will usually spend time answering email questions, sending out helpful documents or speaking to suppliers regarding the events that are coming up. I may well speak with guests on the phone or take accommodation bookings for guests that are attending weddings.

I may have a meeting or two booked. This could be a planning meeting, which is always a lovely chance to go through details and plans and talk through ideas of how to make their day really special, or a food tasting with one of our couples and caterers. 

All of this will be liberally interspersed with cups of coffee and maybe the odd biscuit!
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB? 

My job is great! I can’t say what the best part of my job is, but the best part of my day, is my drive up to Glenfall. It is such a beautiful place that even though I live close by, a five minute drive into the countryside seems like a different world. I don’t think I could ever get tired of seeing Glenfall House appear at the end of the drive as I approach, or the beautiful views across the gardens and surrounding countryside. 

As I am fairly new to the Glenfall Team, I am constantly learning and picking up new skills along the way. I feel very lucky to be part of such a lovely and supportive team and to work in such a beautiful location.
