Meet our Wedding Planner - Ashleigh
Tell us a bit about yourself...
I was born and raised in South Africa and after completing my degree I wanted to travel and see the world. 10 years later I’m still in England and although I haven’t travelled very far, I’m really enjoying working in a setting as beautiful as here in The Lake District! My experience over the last ten years has been varied with 5 years being focussed on wedding & event planning which for me is the part of my job that I love the most. I have managed and executed many different weddings and events and enjoy every step of the process, from the early planning stages right through to the big day itself. I was lucky enough to start working at The Daffodil before it was complete so have seen it transform from a construction site into the amazing wedding venue it is today.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
Each wedding is unique and each Bride and Groom has their own special touches that they want to bring to their day. I take great pride in seeing couples dreams come to life on the big day after the months of planning and organising that goes into each wedding, it’s an honour to be able to share their wedding day with them.
What’s the best thing about weddings at The Daffodil?
Besides the fabulous location and the stunning views that we have, we create a wedding day around the Bride and Groom. No two weddings are the same. We offer two seasonal wedding experiences with plenty of choice to make your wedding day unique, we also have a list of 'Daffodil Luxuries' to add to our weddings for that extra little treat!
What do you do at The Daffodil to ensure the big day goes smoothly?
It’s all in the detail. I am here to assist and advise couples throughout the planning stages right through to the day itself. I am responsible for ensuring your wedding runs smoothly and is everything you hoped it would be, all you need to do is relax and enjoy the day! I take great pride in seeing a wedding come together perfectly, and I’m a strong believer that you can’t get this without focusing on the detail.
Why should you book an appointment with me?
As we offer two seasonal wedding experiences with plenty choice, it would be great to meet with you to discuss your requirements for your special day and it would also give me the opportunity to explain in greater detail what the hotel can offer you. We have an excellent venue to host your wedding day which even our lovely wedding brochure may not capture as well as you would in person, therefore it is beneficial to come and meet with me and take a look at The Daffodil for yourself.
