Meet our Wedding Executive

Meet Nicola Weir, our Weddings and Events Executive. Originally from Newcastle, Nicola has been living in Surrey for 2.5 years and has been working at Oatlands Park Hotel since October last year. We sat down with Nicola to learn a little more about her…

How long have you been coordinating Weddings?

I have two and half years experience coordinating weddings. Prior to this I worked as banqueting staff for weddings.

What is your favourite part of the job?

Meeting new couples for the first time and discussing their ideas, as well as hearing the all-important story of how the question was popped!

What is your favourite part of a wedding?

For me, my favourite part is watching the arrival of the bride to the ceremony and seeing the Groom’s reaction. The morning is always an enjoyable and excitable time too, seeing the bride prior to the ceremony and the room smelling of so much hairspray, and welcoming the Groom prior to the ceremony, all polished and  settling excited nerves.

What would be your dream wedding?

It’s a tie between two ideas at the moment. Always change my mind, and with Pinterest and Instagram…too many choices and ideas to be able to make one fixed decision. Idea one is heading back to the homeland, finding a picturesque setting in the highlands north of the border and get married by a loch and celebrate in grand style in a castle. Idea two is taking my closest family and friends to somewhere hot and sunny, most likely Italy to tie in my other family roots, and enjoy a week together celebrating with great food.
