A Day in the Life of a Wedding Venue Owner
DAVE
Dave is our go to for anything technical - whilst you may not see his face often, he is always working away in the background.
WHAT'S A REGULAR MORNING FOR YOU?

The majority of the time I get up bright and early (around 5am), and get the train to London, where I work as a CTO for an IT business. I normally walk from Paddington Station to the office, obviously going past a coffee shop for my morning coffee and snack!

At weekends, I have a more leisurely start to the day, always starting with fresh coffee and bacon buttie (white bread of course!) and then if a non-event day I will head into Glenfall to help the team with anything they need technical support for; or work on the new ideas that Dianne and I have brainstormed together.

WHAT ARE YOUR MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES? 

I am there for the team to help them with anything technical, look at ways of incorporating their ideas into the Event Management System, and always on the lookout for new ways in which we can make our offering more technical. Like putting Google devices in all of the main house bedrooms, and linking them to our telephone system.

I love to play with a ‘Raspberry Pi’ using these wherever I can, whether that be with our magic mirror or the speaker systems in our main suites.

And almost just as important, I am regularly flying the drone around Glenfall House to help capture our stunning grounds and gardens.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE A PARTICULAR DAY? 

You can always find me serving behind the bar during our Wedding Fayres (although I do prefer to be the other side of the bar). I just love chatting to our visitors about our amazing journey of Glenfall and talking to our couples to see how their wedding plans are coming along. 

For the team I am there to help and support them with all things technical, plus supporting our in-house bespoke Event Management System.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB? 

Getting to play with new technology and having an excuse to buy more gadgets. Basically having a more ‘hands-on’ role writing actual code compared with my day-job where I don’t normally get my hands dirty!

I also look forward to our evening catch ups at home. Dianne works so hard at making Glenfall a "dream" wedding venue that for me a big part of the satisfaction comes from hearing how all our plans are coming to fruition.
