Joey

Wedding Sales Manager

How did you get into your role at Old Down?
With a number of years progressive experience in the hotel, retail and event industry, I was seeking a varied and progressive position to enable and to develop acquired experience and growth in an ambitious and forward-thinking company - Old Down offers great career progression to staff internally, with the opportunity to learn and develop new skills and practices. Over the years, I was fortunate to have progressed through the company to establish my role as Wedding Sales Manager.

What is your top tip for couples planning their wedding?
No question is too silly – we love to hear from you!

What do you love about your job?
The chance to be part of each couple’s wedding day and how they put their stamp on the day incl. decorations, colour schemes, wedding favours. No wedding is the same but all as equally as fantastic!

What’s your favourite photo spot on the estate?
The confetti photo and group photo in the Atrium with all the guests partaking and getting in the spirit of the day – the photographer exhausting every photo opportunity from the balcony in the Atrium. Come rain or shine you will have some great memories to look back on for years to come!

Wedding Coordinator

How did you get into your role at Old Down?
After 7 years of working in an office as an L&D Business Partner, delivering soft skills, technical training and management development to staff at all levels, I needed to find a new passion where I could put the skills I taught others to good use myself. I have always had a foot in the door in the wedding industry though as well through my event decorating business and dabbling in wedding photography in my twenties, so it was a natural transition for me.

What is your top tip for couples planning their wedding?
Be you and hold onto your individuality. That way, when it comes to the big day, your guests will know exactly whose wedding they are at, and will remember it for years. Break the norm, tradition is great but everyone wants their weddings to stand out.

What do you love about your job?
One of my key strengths is relationship-building, so meeting couples is what makes the job so good to me.

What’s your favourite photo spot on the estate?
It has to be the view through the front doors. Especially when the sun is setting. I have managed to capture a few amazing pictures of it.
