Wedding Planning Help and Advice
My Journey to Cote How…
I have a varied background; a blend of creative, logic and corporate all rolled into one, and I guess this wealth of experience has helped mold me into who I am today.
Each and every thing I have done has been a great pleasure and taught me lots of skills along the way!
I left school and trained in Fashion Design and Textiles, then working full time in the clothing industry whilst continuing my studies gaining a Diploma in Management Studies, a Business Management qualification, at Derby University.
THE ENTREPRENEUR IN ME…
A few years later I decided to branch into self employment and opened my bridal boutique creating bespoke, made to measure bridal-wear. Showcasing at major exhibitions including the National Wedding Shows at the NEC, I met brides from all over the UK, who travelled to benefit from my bespoke service.
After relocating to Cote How in 2006 I developed the existing bed and breakfast business to a world renowned Organic Guest House and Tearoom gaining the coveted 5 star Green Tourism Award and the Soil Association organic license for both the tearoom and guest house, which was featured in several publications; Lonely Plant and Green Traveller. Sustainability and great food is still very high on the agenda as we strive to be as ethical and environmentally responsible as we can.
In house Wedding Planning expert
In 2013 I realised my ultimate dream when Cote How gained it’s first wedding license and began evolving into one of the Lake District’s most exclusive small wedding venues.
Cote How occupies a natural gem of a location right in the heart of the English Lake District and oozes Lakeland charm.
Cote How is as far from corporate as it is possible, and staying true to it’s Lakeland heritage we focus on attention to detail and sublime customer service, creating perfect weddings, in a relaxed and friendly environment.
But don’t take our word for it!
