Maynard appoints Wedding Planner

22nd July 2008


Carly, 24 and from Dronfield, was previously working with Sheffield United FC’s events division, and prior to that she was employed as a property advisor by Saxton Mee.

The Maynard has always been synonymous with a great wedding venue, and the proposition just 
got even better, as Carly explains: “When you first arrive at The Maynard there is an incredible wow factor. People find it hard to believe we are just 10 minutes from Sheffield; 10 minutes from Bakewell; 20 minutes from the M1 at Chesterfield and less than an hour from Manchester - yet we have some of the most amazing views in the entire country.

”With the addition of the new boutique hotel rooms and the award-winning restaurant, The Maynard’s interior and levels of service are now living up to its impressive exterior. We have only just started to embark on a long journey with The Maynard, but it is clear that great strides have been made in a very short space of time since Paul Downing took over. The Maynard has fantastic potential and as a team we are now setting about making sure it realises that potential.”

The Maynard prides itself on a personalised, bespoke wedding service that is second to none. “A wedding can be a very stressful time and my job is to anticipate all the problems and issues in advance, and make sure they don’t happen. By gaining people’s trust we can handle everything for them and they don’t have to worry about a thing. After all, it’s a day that should be enjoyed to the full, not one that should be remembered for stress and hassle,” adds Carly. 

Carly is working closely with Paul Downing to create new and exciting wedding packages that will attract a new type of customer to The Maynard.  

Paul Downing, director of The Maynard, said: “Carly has a lot of good new ideas and is particularly good at forming relationships with brides-to-be, making them feel special and making sure they get what they want on their wedding day. We wish her well with her career at The Maynard and hope she will remain an important part of the team for many years to come.

”We have always done weddings well at The Maynard, and that was probably even true prior to our taking over the hotel a couple of years ago. What we have now, however, is a totally different proposition. We are no longer competing with ‘mainstream’ wedding venues. The personal touch, the quality of accommodation and food, and the warmness of the welcome are what The Maynard is now about. We want people to come back time and time again, and for many of our customers that process starts with a memorable, faultless wedding in stunning surroundings.”
