Mum has now deservedly retired, and my role has changed so we’ve created a new wedding sales role. We had some very good candidates, but one stood out – Kirstie. She is fantastic. Her enthusiasm, hard work and business acumen balance perfectly with her care in the early planning of a couple’s big day. She works alongside Amy, our wedding co-ordinator.
Amy joined us in 2013 as a duty manager. She left us for a short period to have a baby and work on some solo projects, but we were delighted when she returned and took on her current role. She’s a great team-player, thorough, organised, hard-working. Most of all, she has a true passion for weddings; her enthusiasm and thoughtfulness are just what a couple need when planning their wedding with us.
I really believe that identifying the right positions for members of the team, and getting it all to work together is one of the most important areas of my job. With Amy and Kirstie, we definitely have the right people in the right jobs.
They are our core wedding team, but of course the day could not be a success without everyone’s input at the hotel. I’m always very proud of how the team really step up when we have a wedding.
