Your Coordinator

I am very proud to say that I have been working with couples and their suppliers helping to ensure that they have the very best day possible since Pendennis Castle was first licensed for Civil Wedding Ceremonies in 1998. I have of course worked with many couples over the years and have a wealth of experience but never take for granted the pleasure of working at such an important and loved Cornish landmark that is Pendennis Castle.

Hospitality Manager Pendennis Castle

I've been lucky enough to work at beautiful Pendennis Castle since 2000, and started working as part of the Hospitality team in 2003. It's been a privilege to help plan and coordinate weddings and events at Pendennis and St Mawes Castles for hundreds of couples and no two weddings have ever been the same!
