Meet the team

Our dedicated events team LOVE weddings and believe that the wedding planning process shouldn't be stressful

Meet Emma, Hollie, Sophie and Claire.

Between them they have over 15 years of events experience here at Waddesdon.

We are incredibly lucky to have such a dedicated and enthusiastic team, regularly going that extra mile to ensure our couples get their perfect wedding day.

Always smiling and professional, our staff set Waddesdon wedding venues apart from many of our competitors.

We appreciate wedding planning can at times be stressful, with many couples wishing they had more time to enjoy the fun stuff – hello menu tasting!

That’s why every Waddesdon wedding couple is assigned a dedicated wedding coordinator from the team. Your wedding coordinator will support you through the whole process, from the early planning stages through to managing the day itself. Helping you to relax and enjoy your big day.

Despite a background in photography, the lure of meeting new people and planning the biggest day of their lives brought Holly into the wedding industry. Holly is the newest member of the Wedding and Private Events team, working as a co-ordinator while Emma is on maternity leave.
