After studying Accountancy and Management at Cardiff University Chris moved to Portugal to work in a boutique hotel. From what was an initial summer job, Chris worked at the hotel for 6 years, which culminated in him managing this 5 star venue. In 2013, he was then offered the exciting prospect of developing Eastington Park as a wedding venue by his Aunt Sally, the property owner, and jumped on the first flight back. Chris now lives in Bristol where he enjoys playing tennis, football, socialising and helping his friends with their wedding plans(!) – and after recently getting married, he now has experience from both sides of a wedding! Chris’ passion for developing properties has helped with his continual improvement of the venue and he’s very excited about his current and future plans for Eastington Park.

Mel has been working in the wedding industry for the last eight years following a degree in Event Management. She has lived in the village of Eastington all her life so has lots of good local knowledge! She loves sharing her wedding experiences with her brides-to-be and ensuring their wedding day is exactly as they dreamt of. The part of a wedding that always sets her off is seeing the Groom’s face as his Bride walks down the aisle towards him! Mel loves going to the gym and spending time with her four-legged friend Archie; however, Mel’s true passion in life is chocolate!

Lisa has been part of the team for 4 years, but she’s originally from London, where she organised large events for up to 2,000 people. She is now a happy West Country resident and loves her office here in the countryside! Lisa loves getting to know her new brides-to-be and helping them organise their special day, so much so that she had her own wedding here at Eastington Park in September 2017! Lisa used to spend her free time designing shoes and dresses, but as a new mum now she has rather less free time for her designs! She also has a real passion for running, music, films and Domino’s Pizzas!

Alex has event management in his genes, he did his first bit of event ‘work’ with his parents’ catering company when he was just 9 years old, polishing cutlery, and he then worked his way up through the ranks to the position of Event Co-Ordinator – when he was a little older! Alex completed a 3 year degree at Bath Spa university, and then worked in other areas of wedding and event management before joining the Eastington Park team as one of our Wedding Managers. Alex still lives in Bath, and he loves managing every aspect of the weddings here, to ensure the day is even more perfect than the happy couple imagined! Alex spends his free time doing pub-quizzes, going to the theatre and eating Ben and Jerrys!
