Our In-House Planner Included

Here at Scampston Hall, we have been working alongside Ellen from LND Events as our in-house planner for a number of years.

Ellen's coordination service is included in our package. Once you have chosen Scampston Hall for your big day, your details will be passed onto Ellen to arrange a meeting. In this meeting you can discuss plans for your wedding; your likes, dislikes and things you feel are important to include in your day. Ellen can translate these into timings that will make your wedding day run perfectly.

On the countdown to your wedding (around a month before) Ellen will be back in touch to collate the suppliers you have chosen, find out arrival times and complete the full timeline. On the day before you wedding, Ellen will arrange a site visit to see how you've set up your marquee and run through the logistics. On the day itself, she will arrive at least half an hour before your first supplier is due and stay until your last official activity is underway.

We chose Ellen to work with us as she has vast experience in her own wedding planning business. If you'd like extra assistance with your wedding, Ellen offers as much or as little support as you would like. From supplier research, planning sessions and bespoke or full planning services, Ellen is happy to help with your specific needs. You can find out more about extra assistance HERE.
