Meet the team

Meet Emma, Hollie, Sophie and Claire.

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.
