When I’m not planning and delivering a wedding, I like to …….. spend time walking on the beach with my partner, Jamie and furry baby, Alfie. I can also be found regularly performing musicals with Alnwick Stage Musical Society at The Alnwick Playhouse.

My time as Wedding co-ordinator at The Alnwick Garden began in May 2017, after returning back to the UK from living in Dubai for 7 years. Working at such a unique place where we can offer two individual venues and truly personalise the experience for our couples, is very special to me as I get to offer a bespoke service for each couple and embark on their wedding journey with them from the very moment that they book their date, right through to the special day itself. I’d have to say that a highlight in my career was winning multiple awards for outstanding customer service and recognition as Wedding Co-ordinator of the Year for the North of England, as these were voted for by my couples, making them all the more meaningful achievements.

When I’m not planning and delivering a wedding, I like to travel and work on ticking experiences off my ever-growing bucket list.  

I started working for the Garden in May of 2020 after graduating from university with a first-class honours degree in Events and Tourism Management. My passion has always been in working on unique events, and it doesn’t get much more unique than the Alnwick Garden and Treehouse!  

I truly value the relationships we are able to build with our couples helping to plan their special day and love knowing we’ve played a small part in creating a memory that will last a lifetime.
