Growth of the team includes the appointment of a Head of Creative, finance manager and six new recruits in sales and administration; comprising of two wedding venue specialists, two venue advisors and a further two junior administrators.
Nik Gudegast joins the expanding team as Head of Creative, having previously worked at Photolink Creative Group as lead digital creative.
Commenting on his appointment, Nik says: “Country House Wedding Venues is a truly unique business. To play a part in the engagement each couple has with the brand and to build their excitement into every aspect of our marketing is fantastic to work on.”
Julia Cassin, who joins Country House Wedding Venues as a venue specialist from the Hilton hospitality team, says: “After a number of years working in the hospitality industry I gained a wealth of knowledge about the wedding industry, having the opportunity to co-ordinate weddings from the point of sale right through to the bride and grooms’ big day.
“I wanted to continue working within the wedding and hospitality sector as part of an industry leading team, which is why Country House Weddings was a great fit. I thoroughly enjoy building relationships and feel privileged to help each couple through their wedding journey.”
Stuart Owens, director, comments: “We’ve had some fantastic results this year having been involved with the planning of 1500 weddings, and the year is not over yet.
“With over 18 years’ experience in the industry, we know exactly what couples are looking for when planning their big day. People are a key part of our business and we recognise that it’s not just our exclusive portfolio of luxury venues that ensures our success, but building a world-class team alongside our business’ growth that helps us to make each couple’s dreams a reality.”
