Meet Emily, our wedding coordinator also known as a ‘Dream Maker’ at Falcon Manor. Ever wondered what it’s like to be a James’ Places Dream Maker? Emily tells us more…
I’ve always been a strong believer in “if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”, this quote became relatable to me 4 months ago when I started working as a Dream Maker at Falcon Manor. Whilst living in Lancashire, I never thought I’d cross the border to work in Yorkshire, but have you seen the roaring fires, grand staircase and contemporary twists? All set up in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales – I knew it had my heart straight away! Since having an events management background, planning weddings was something I’ve always dreamed of. There is never a day that I wake up and have the dreaded thought of going to work – if anything, I’m excited! It’s the excitement of meeting potential new couples to show them around my beautiful venue and liaising with current ones to help plan their special day, wondering what questions or thoughts they might have for me.
Along the journey you become such good friends with the couple, being there whether they need to laugh or cry and knowing all of their secrets for the day… that’s right, I know exactly where your ‘borrowed’ shoes are from but don’t worry, that’s just our secret! Not forgetting, the guest you thought couldn’t make it, will be hiding around the side door to surprise you. But all these things are what makes my day.
It’s amazing to meet so many incredible couples each with their own style and thoughts of their dream wedding because no wedding is ever the same. After months of planning together, the big day has finally arrived, and all the finer details are exactly what you have planned. It’s such an incredible feeling as a Dream Maker to know that the couple’s reactions on the best day of their life, has been helped by you. Whilst I’m leaving work, the evening guests are arriving, the party starts, and the happy couple is dancing their way through the night to start the beginning of their forever – now that’s what dreams are made of!
You can meet Emily and the rest of our Dream Makers at our Blush & Gold inspired wedding fair on Sunday 25th February. To come along, pre-register online here.< Back to the blog archive
