I live with my husband, my 2 children, my step son & 3 dogs(!) yes it’s a very busy household but I wouldn’t change it for the world!

About me: I live with my husband, my 2 children, my step son & 3 dogs(!) yes it’s a very busy household but I wouldn’t change it for the world! When I started my role at Unique Venues in 2012 friends used to say ‘always the planner never the bride’ but that wasn’t the case for me as I got married at our stunning sister venue in July 2018 and had THE most amazing day!

Favourite hobby/pastime: When I’m not working, I’m usually with the kids at soft play(!) out walking with our dogs or enjoying a steak at Miller and Carter!

Favourite First Dance Song: Ed Sheeran – Perfect (my first dance song of course!)

Favourite part of the wedding: When father of the bride see’s his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress. I wasn’t fortunate enough to have my Dad walk me down the aisle, but knowing how much those memories will be cherished forever means the world!

Your favourite aspect/part of Bredenbury Court Barns: The reaction you get when you open the double doors into the Oak Barn for couples and guests! ‘Wow’, ‘Amazing’ ‘Look at those views’….!!

I live with my partner and my Maine Coon cat, Max, in the countryside and love hosting friends and family in our home with good food and South African wine.

About me: I grew up in South Africa and moved to the UK when I was 13 (I am completely bilingual in English and Afrikaans). I live with my partner and my Maine Coon cat, Max, in the countryside and love hosting friends and family in our home with good food and South African wine.

Favourite pastime: I am a competitive Ballroom and Latin American dancer and have danced for 11 years! If I’m not wearing sparkly dresses on the competition floor you can normally find me in practice-wear in the studio. It’s a great hobby to help with any First Dance jitters!

Favourite first dance song: Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley

Favourite part of a wedding: The first dance! I can always feel the relief and the “we did it” moment as the couple stare into each other’s eyes and sway to their perfect song. You can normally find me shedding a little tear as I watch from the corner.

Favourite part of Bredenbury Court Barns: My favourite part of the venue has to be the views. It takes my breath away every time I come down the drive, I love to stop my car and just take in the beauty and nature of all the countryside surrounding us. On the same note, the views from the Oak Barn are just surreal, how lucky are we!

It seems my hobbies these days include driving the kids to various sporting fixtures and refereeing arguments; but when I do have some free time, I’m usually baking cakes (which never last long in our house)!

Favourite pastime: I have a background in Art and love to bake, so usually I can be found merging the two and creating pretty edible works of art!

Favourite first dance song: ‘The Book of Love’ by Peter Gabriel

Favourite part of wedding: Watching the newly married couple being introduced into the Oak Barn to rapturous applause as they take their seats for their wedding breakfast!

Your favourite part of Bredenbury: How can I choose? The beautiful natural sunlight in The Orangery wows me every time I walk in, and being a Malvern girl the view towards the Malvern Hills from the Oak Barn always makes me feel incredibly lucky to live in this wonderful part of the world!
