My name is Paige Kay and I am new to the wedding team here at Shrigley Hall Hotel. After 6 years within the hospitality industry and after my time at university, I was desperate to get more hands on and jumped at the chance to join the team at Shrigley and become one of their new wedding coordinators.
From my first year of being here at Shrigley, I have loved getting to know new couples and going on the journey with them from the day they book, to the day of their wedding, watching their visions come to life. Being part of such an important day in two people’s lives is pretty amazing! I have specifically loved admiring how each couple implements their own unique touch to their day. We’ve had a variety of different wedding themes, venue dressing and even entertainment here at the hotel meaning no wedding is the same!
Shrigley Hall is the perfect location to host such a special day for many reasons with one being its beautiful location. The picturesque grounds that surround Shrigley lend themselves to breath-taking photographs. From the front of the hotel, to the lake on the golf course & the beautiful sunsets that descend over Shrigley, and that’s only on the outside! The ornate domed roof over the grand staircase located in the heart of the hotel is perfect for group shots, creating such a beautiful backdrop that you can admire for years to come.
Of course Shrigley wouldn’t be Shrigley without the amazing team that work effortlessly front of house and behind the scenes to make sure every last detail meets the expectations of our couples and their guests and is something that I am truly proud to be a part of.
Some top tips for wedding planning I would say is booking a venue that has accommodation meaning your guests can stay the night prior and on the wedding night giving them a room to get ready in and freshen up during the day taking away any extra stress. Another important tip, is having an idea of your numbers when enquiring at a venue to make sure they can accommodate you with the most suitable function space. Here at Shrigley we have 3 amazing function spaces that can hold a variety of different numbers of guests, so knowing rough numbers is ideal! Lastly, I think the most important thing to remember is that there is no definition of a ‘perfect’ wedding. A wedding can be small, large, heavily decorated or very simply decorated. At the end of the day, the most significant thing is the happiness between the couple.
