As the wedding planner/functions co ordinator at your venue what has been your biggest challenges as the co ordinator and what gives you the most enjoyment about your role at the venue.The biggest challenge for me personally is when the Bride is very,very stressed and anxious as it does make it hard for them to let go. However on the day after all the planning has taken place, we take over and ensure that every element is actioned. In the end they are so incredibly thankful for all of the behind the scenes work that takes place and appreciates how hard we all work as a team to make their dream wedding run so smoothly. This is the most enjoyable part of my role.
