It’s time to get to know our wedding coordinators, we are proud to have an experienced team that pride themselves in a personal approach to weddings & events.
Head of Sales & Events
My favourite wedding memory: Being maid of Honor and chief planner at my brother and sister-in laws elopement in Texas. Despite the 40 degree heat the love in the little chapel in the woods was intoxicating.
What I love: Seeing the soon to be newlyweds faces when they see each other walking up the aisle and the other waiting to meet them!
Top wedding Tip: forget what you think your parents, friends or family want to see, you only get married once, make it about you and your favourite drinks, food, music, flowers!
Don’t forget: Wear in those wedding shoes! Whether they are heels, converse, or somewhere in between blisters are no fun. (Don’t panic we have plasters if it happens though! Xx)
I started my love affair with weddings while at university working on a wedding bar watching the happy couples dance their nights away with a tipple in hand. From there I moved into wedding management and worked for some truly beautiful hotels in Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire. In 2015 I joined the team at Old Amersham and never looked back! The beauty of the venue shone through from my first visit and I have been lucky enough to be part of hundreds of “I do” moments since being here. I can’t wait to see you tie the knot next!

Senior Events Coordinator
Favourite On-Screen Wedding: Sweet Home Alabama
I love weddings that… Have live acoustic music as part of their ceremony and drinks reception. There’s something so special about having someone sing you down the aisle!
Favourite Wedding Moment: Right before we send you down the aisle, when bridesmaids are fluffing hair and topping lipstick up, everyone takes a deep breath before the doors open and then it’s your moment! It’s amazing to be a part of, there’s a lot of love in those few moments before you say I do.
Ideal wedding item: The best weddings have a dog ring bearer. You don’t have to have one but it helps!
Favourite On-Screen Proposal: Monica & Chandler, Friends
First Choice Wedding Season: It will always be autumn for me, I absolutely love the burst of fiery colours and adore the way they work with a rustic style wedding!
I Love Weddings That… truly transform the venue and put their own little touches into the decoration. It’s a magical moment to walk into the main hall on a wedding day and see it how you have never seen it before!
My Favourite Wedding Moment: Eagerly waiting for the couple to emerge from the green doors, hand in hand with beaming smiles, as newlyweds! Seeing the excitement and hearing a sigh of relief that the emotional bit is out the way and the party can start!
Favourite Wedding Song: This changes regularly as I hear so many love songs at work but currently it’s ‘My Only One (No Hay Nadie Mas)’ by Sebastian Yatre and Isabela Moner
I love weddings that… incorporate an extra personal touch to the day. Whether it be having a friend play your entrance song or your dog being a ring bearer. It just adds that little something extra to remember.
Ideal wedding meal: I grew up having a roast every Sunday and never got bored of it so I’d definitely have the meat and all the trimmings. The more Yorkshire puddings the better. My life revolves around chocolate as well so as long as that’s in my dessert I am happy.
Favourite Wedding Moment: Seeing a couples decoration come together. Each and every one is different and they transform the room in different ways each time.
Most unique wedding moment: Meeting Molly, the owl ring-bearer at one of our weddings, was an absolute delight – and a perfect way to keep all the guests occupied during drinks reception while photos were being taken.
Favourite decoration: A balcony full of greenery and plenty of fairy lights are always a great start to making Chapel look its best – I also can never resist a table decorated with succulents!
Top wedding tip: Personal touches are what makes a day stand out – table names that reflect your personalities, a photo wall of all your best couple moments or a treat table filled with all your favourites, anything personal to you will make a great memory for your guests.
I began working in weddings at a beautiful bespoke country house venue in Derbyshire, where I fell in love with that style of weddings. When looking for jobs around London I fell in love with the Chapel on first sight, and decided it was much nicer to come to work in the little chocolate box village of Amersham each day than it was to travel into the city. When I’m walking up the driveway towards Chapel each day I still feel very lucky to work in such beautiful surroundings.
After 2 years of running events & weddings at this hidden gem, I hung up my wedding clipboard in July 2017 when I went off to have my daughter. Since returning to this beautiful place last summer, I am now making sure as many wonderful couples are finding us as possible! We love creating your special day and so want to make sure everyone knows that we are here waiting to start the journey to an amazing wedding day!
Top wedding tip: Get the right photographer for you…remember those pictures will last a lifetime & will be your memories of your special day so keep a decent budget aside for the right person!
