Wedding and Event Manager | The Hoste

March 2021 - Ongoing

Venue based wedding and event planning including delivering all weddings for The Hoste. Responsibilities include: Processing and converting sales enquiries, point of contact for all wedding couples during the planning process and executing the whole day, including managing all staff, both agency and in house staff.

I’ve worked with Jade for the past 3 years at the Hoste Arms, firstly in the capacity of Events & Guest Services Manager and also once she became a self-employed events planner. I have always found Jade to be friendly, helpful, efficient and understanding of guest / client’s needs.  She is always 100% dedicated to the task in hand and looking for ways to improve the client’s experience. I have found her to be energetic, creative, organised and a real asset to the team. If you’re looking for someone to take your event and run with it, to make it the best it can be then I would wholeheartedly recommend you get in touch with Jade

On the day wedding Coordinator | Swaffham Assembly Rooms

April 2024

On the day wedding coordinator for Abby & Tiago's Bridgeton inspired wedding at Swaffham Assembly Rooms. Responsibilities included: creating a comprehensive function sheet, assisting and advising with set up, running the day including all suppliers.

Jade was hands down the best decision I made for my wedding, I could never have finalised my planning and executed the wedding of my dreams without her knowledge, support and guidance. My venue was beautiful but had no onsite co ordination team, and I had no idea on how I was going to structure the order of my day. Jade produced a full, in depth function sheet witb timings, details, contacts and outstanding questions to help me organise the things I needed to complete.

 

On the day, Jade was my beacon in the night. She was helping me wherever I needed, but she would be already noticing things and handling them before I had time to worry about anything, she didn't miss a trick!!!

 

Jade, you are an absolute star, you are so good at your profession and I genuinely couldn't have done it without you.

Energetic, ridiculously efficient, strong and an excellent addition to the team (She also baked and bought in homemade advent calendars). I had the pleasure of recruiting Jade at Southbank Centre, she made such an excellent impression at interview I can still remember it. The excellent impression never wavered, she continued to impress us on every project or event. Working with the team, but also always looking to improve process’ and generally make a better and more efficient environment to work in. I would recruit Jade again in heartbeat and would encourage any organisation to develop a role for her if they can, she will fill it and more.
