Our wedding and events manager is Ailsa and she has been at the castle for four years.
Out of work she is a keen jogger and on normal days is often out on her daily run by 5:30am. Sounds crazy? – Family time is really important to her and she likes to end her day relaxing with her son and husband. She also enjoys unwinding by cooking tea with a glass of wine. Things she can do guilt free when her daily exercise is out the way 12 hours earlier!
Selva val Gardena in the dolomite mountains is the place she loves most out of all the places she has visited. She worked as a chalet host in a 26 man chalet way back when. During that time she improved her skiing skills, learnt how to snowboard and also experienced paragliding.
Not knowing what to do as a career, Ailsa gained Business, administration and accountancy qualifications before heading to the slopes. It was here, looking after her chalet guests that she decided hospitality was the path for her!
Although Ailsa enjoys initially meeting prospective wedding couples, she finds the ‘getting to Know you‘ process especially enjoyable. Learning as much as she can about our couples as they work together to plan the big day ahead. This ensuring all the team at the castle can make the wedding couple feel as at home as possible since they are already part of the ‘Walworth family’.
Roll on our next ‘Walworth Wedding’
