When I’m not planning and delivering weddings, I like to …….. provide a free taxi service for my two teenage children!   

I have worked for the Garden for 8 years starting as the Friends Manager, moving positions to the Sales and Friends Manager and finally my current position. I’ve been studying (slowly) my marketing degree which will be finished in April 2022. I balance work with a busy home life including ferrying my teenage son to and from rugby matches across the region. 

As the backbone of the team, I have a keen eye for detail, whether that is from an admin point of view or working with our couples to ensure the perfect day for them is achieved. 

The best part of my job is interacting with our couples. From meeting with them at show rounds and wowing them with our amazing venues, to the big day itself where we look after them with the care and attention they deserve, ensuring everything is run according to plan without them having to think about a thing and enabling them to enjoy the day as they should. I like to think my personality and vibrance makes our couples and families feel welcome, and secure in the knowledge that the team will look after them explicitly.

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.
