Her wealth of knowledge and attention to detail means couples can relax knowing they are in safe hands. Her choice; fine dining or informal cuisine? – “I love being treated to an elegant meal out but when it comes to a wedding breakfast it’s all about getting it right for the couple; their first meal shared as man and wife should be a reflection of their unique personalities.”

Tim Dunkley – Wedding Event Co-ordinator

Joining the team in 2015, I would say I found my niche, making sure our clients are always happy. My years spent in the industry mean I know as well as anyone that, when all is said and done, these once-in-a-lifetime events are about one person and one person only – the bride! I spend my day creating truly unique events that amaze and dazzle even the most discerning of clients with my enthusiasm, and charismatic personality.  My favourite part of the day is that all important first dance, which still makes me emotional.

Steven Johnstone – Wedding Events Co-ordinator

Since joining Jenkinsons in August 2014 I have enjoyed the variety of work that Jenkinsons do, no more than the weddings, where you get to be a part of & run someone’s special day. Being one of the first people to congratulate the couple after they’ve got married at the wedding venues with a welcome drink gives them the personal touch & reassurance for their day ahead.
