WHAT'S A REGULAR MORNING FOR YOU?

It always starts with a cup of tea! One before work and always one when I get there plus 20 more 😊 

One of the best parts of the mornings at work is being greeted by Bud when I walk into the office - the best way to start the day! Then its computer on have a wonder around the gardens to check everything’s in its place and Glennie is still there and hasn’t taken off!
WHAT ARE YOUR MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES? 

Some of my main responsibilities are making sure the Event Coordinators are happy with their tasks for the week ahead and any questions they have we go through together. I also communicate between our couples and the caterers to make sure any menu planning for their event is coming together to make their day even more special.

I’m always looking at the week ahead, at what events we have got coming up so that we have the right stock in at the right time. I also look a month ahead at events to make sure the right staff are in at the right times, we definitely wouldn’t want your wedding taking place when your coordinator has the day off!! 

I need to keep an eye on the day to day bits as well, making sure the hours are clocked for the staff, all our spreadsheets are up to date and making sure the place is clean and tidy so if anyone walks through the door, Glenfall is at its best 😊 BUT most importantly….. the tea needs to be free flowing and the dogs need to be having lots of attention so that everyone is happy. 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE A PARTICULAR DAY? 

A particular day consists of god conversation, getting to speak to new people and meet new faces but the best bit about most days is seeing peoples dream weddings come together bit by bit every day. 

Of course it wouldn’t be a normal day if there weren’t dogs in the office (as you can tell, we are quite fond of them 😉). 

Its lovely building up stronger relationships with our Glenfall couples, we are always finding out something new. 

WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB? 

One of the best parts of the job is definitely being a part of a wedding day that you have helped build, the smiles from the guests and especially the couple, gives you such an amazing feeling knowing that you helped with it.


We’re very lucky that we get to work with such a nice group of people, from my colleagues in the office, to the suppliers we get to work with I can honestly say I wouldn’t change any of them!


And of course, the dogs! It wouldn’t be the same without them.
