A beautiful estate in Dorset is looking for a Wedding and Events Planner to start ASAP.  This is a gorgeous place to work set in stunning surroundings and working with an entrepreneurial and fun family.  The events that take place at the estate range from weddings (big and small), filming, smaller corporate events and other parties.  This is an exciting role and very busy but represents a brilliant opportunity for someone who is passionate about events.  

The venue has certain suppliers that they use and will work closely with.  This is not a wedding planner role though, more managing the weddings and events that take place on site!

  • Running the weddings and events for this beautiful rural estate
  • Engaging with the clients and showing them around the venue
  • Dealing with enquiries and doing quotes for hire
  • Booking in filmings and dealing with their schedules
  • Hosting a month long festival in the summer
  • Liaising with the catering companies, bar company and security that are on the preferred supplier list
  • Arranging additional staff when required
  • Managing a team of part-time assistants
  • Running 35-40 weddings per day and sorting out details with the wedding planners of the couples
  • Overseeing the overall wedding, but not involved in all day


  • Are bubbly and outgoing
  • Love events and are passionate about providing the clients with their dream day
  • Get on well with people and are great with brides - calming and supportive on their big day
  • Have a vision for events and can sell spaces to the potential customers
  • Come from an events background, ideally in weddings
  • Would be excited for a new challenge
  • Enjoy working in the countryside and would love more of a rural role
