Why did you want to join Heaton House Events?

I have been involved in events since I was 4, it's in my blood! My parents organised a family fun day and since then it has grown in to a 3 day weekend called Triplefest. Back in 2000, my family took the decision to diversify the farm to a wedding venue and I can remember getting off the school bus, running in to the barn with my bags dropping them on the floor and help my Mum place favours neatly around the table. Needless to say, I have a keen eye for detail and enjoy wandering around the events taking place making sure everything is set up perfectly.

What do you spend your day doing?

It really varies! One day I can be researching a new system to improve our services that we offer, to another where I can be launching it!
I also look after our on-line presence such as keeping the website up to date with images that photographers send us of past events, and of course social media, which now makes up a massive part of the service that we offer. Our clients are always messaging or tweeting me and I love replying back to them, so if you ever wondered who it was replying; now you know!

What’s the best thing about working at Heaton House Events?

The people! Whether it's my colleagues, or clients - they are all great!

What's your proudest achievement whilst working at Heaton House Events?

Literally starting from the bottom and working through many different stages, I've had many roles through my time with Heaton House Events, I've developed them and they've developed me.
My most recent achievement would have to be when we won The Wedding Industry Award for best Events Team in the North West, not only in 2015, but 2016 also - so proud!

What would you say to someone who is looking to join our team?

Come and have a look around, meet the team and see what all the fuss is about!

What top tip would you give to our couples for a brilliant event?

I'm going to have to do two...
1 - Don't follow blogs or magazines word for word, after all, they are writers and might not have much event experience. The best advice can be achieved from chatting to suppliers and asking for their extensive knowledge, they know who they work well with to achieve the best results.
2 - Create a brand. Some of my favourite events have featured a unique monogram. This has been on the event invites, which really sets the scene with the guests, and even featured on the dining table stationery and on gobo lighting looks great too!

The variety within the job, you never know what may happen when you arrive at work! Never are two days the same. Also working alongside such a brilliant team, they are supportive and more friendly than you can possibly imagine.

It should be reworded ‘proudest moments’ as every time I read a review or a thank you card from past clients saying how grateful they are for everything the team does, it always makes me proud that we achieved and exceeded their expectations! Nothing beats that feeling.

I spend my day doing a wide variety of tasks as a Junior Event Coordinator. I could be showing our lovely couples around our fantastic venue, answering emails and phone calls, conducting a final meeting with my assigned couples or running their wedding day for them.

What’s the best thing about working at Heaton House Events?

The best thing about working at Heaton House Events is the people I work with. Furthermore, that every day is different, no wedding or office day is ever the same.

Heaton House is like no other wedding venue, be prepared to never stop learning with no two days ever being the same. You will work with a great team, who are always there to help you and push you forward to succeed in everything you do. It is not a decision you will regret.

What top tip would you give our couples for a brilliant event?

To be organised with your planning, ensure the registrars and suppliers are booked in plenty of time to ease the stress for you. But most of all to have fun whilst doing it, if you are enjoying yourselves so will your guests and that makes a brilliant event.

Why did you want to join Heaton House Events?

I had just graduated from University in a subject I then didn’t want to continue with and I was very much lost. My brother spotted a receptionist role at our local wedding venue and so I went for it. The team here took me under their wing, looked at my skills and have now developed and trained me in marketing, and I’ve never looked back.

What do you spend the day doing?

I am absolutely loving my new role in marketing! My day consists of scouting through stunning photographs from the weddings that have taken place here, Pinteresting, hash-tagging, writing blogs and content for the website and then when we have guests stay I look after them and check them in and out ensuring they have a lovely stay. I also love showing newly engaged couples around the venue, it's amazing to be a part of their wedding planning experience.

What’s the best thing about working at Heaton House Events?

There's never a quiet moment here but if you ever have something you need help on, there is always a helping hand. It's all about being a team here and it was fantastic to stand on the stage with my colleagues at The Wedding Industry Awards and accept the Best Events Team in the North West!

What's your proudest achievement whilst working at Heaton House Events?

When I joined Heaton House Events I was very much a city girl, patterned fashion wellies and fancy fur coats and hats, and I had a huge fear of animals! After a few months here you can now catch me walking through fields with sheep and stood in the middle of cows with a bull staring at me! I DIDN'T EVEN RUN AWAY!

What would you say to someone who is looking to join our team?

Come along, give 100%, use your skills and they will be put to good use and there is room to progress internally.

What top tip would you give for a brilliant event?

Not everything in life comes easy, but with hard work and a helping hand, anything is possible! You have just got to make sure you enjoy it along the way.
