Having been with Lime Venue Portfolio (a central reservation team for venues that the Compass Group UK & Ireland cater to) for 7 years, Sarah has recently taken on the role of Regional Business Development Manager which involves promoting 55 venues within the M25 (from historic gems like the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich to Trinity House and many more) but ultimately helping brides and grooms to find the perfect venue for their special day.
What inspired you to take on this role?
I love meeting new people and this goes hand and hand with finding the perfect venue for the bride and groom on their special day. I’m always up for a challenge and I believe there is a certain skill needed for anyone working in the events and wedding business.
What aspect of your work do you most enjoy?
Seeing the event in full swing gives me the most pleasure. Watching guests celebrate and enjoy their day gives me real satisfaction knowing that all the hard work leading up to the day has been worth it.
Describe a perfect day for you?
Sun, Sea, Seafood & New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc – delicious!
When was the last time you laughed really hard and what was the joke?
Watching my husband and our godson on a treasure hunt I organised for them recently. It was hilarious to see the excitement on the four year olds face as he raced around looking for each clue.
What is your most possessed item and why?
My photos… in particular our wedding day photos because it was the most amazing occasion with great memories
If you could give one piece of advice to couples getting married what would it be?
Don’t sweat about the small stuff. I remember my husband and I really stressing the day before our wedding and trying to ensure that everything was perfect.
We were so wound up about some the smallest of details. We should have been relaxing and enjoying the lead up but we became so up tight!
On the day the detail that we felt were so important didn’t matter at all and we had the best day without even noticing the detail we felt needed to be right!
Thanks to Sarah Sowerby from Lime Venue Portfolio.
