The long serving coordinator joined the Castle Green banqueting team in 2001 aged just 15.
Nicola moved to a full time role on Reception when she finished sixth form and later seized the opportunity to landed her the role of 'wedding and events coordinator' at the hotel that she now describes as her 'spiritual home'.
Ben Mayou, General Manager, Castle Green Hotel said: “The Lake District, as you can imagine, is full of venues making it a very competitive market place. Castle Green is just outside the national park so over the years we’ve developed our packages to ensure we offer something different to those lakeside properties.
"One area that we can really excel in is our customer service and experience in organising weddings. I know that can be said of many wedding coordinators, but this is not just a job for Nicola! On their first meeting, many couples mention her warm welcome and willingness to hear their love story and ideas for their dream day.”
Liz Duncan, Marketing Manager, Castle Green Hotel went on to say: “A wedding booking is not just a sales transaction, it’s the beginning of a relationship that may last many years. Nicola excels in this area, giving our couples the confidence that we will deliver their dream day.
"She also has a natural ability to make a couple's day as stress free as possible with her attention to detail and calm outlook in a crisis. She even organised her own wedding at the Hotel and has been the go to person for three further members of staff who have entrusted her with their big day at Castle Green”.
