YourWedding Coordinators

MollyCollier

Wedding Coordinator
I have been a Wedding and Events Coordinator at Channels Estate since 2018 and I love working closely with each couple to make sure they get the wedding they always dreamed of. I enjoy every aspect of my role, but the most rewarding part is seeing the smile on my couples’ faces at the end of a magical and memorable day. My aim is to make the day as stress free as possible for my couples, so just relax, take in and enjoy every moment. My favourite part of the special day is to see the groom’s face when he sees his bride for the first time, tugs at my heart strings every time!

“Our wedding co-ordinator, Molly was always on hand in the run up to the wedding to sort any issues and give us ideas on what to do. You don’t get married every day so someone with knowledge is a great asset! On the day she was there whenever we needed her and had everything under control.”

EleanorPitts

Wedding Coordinator
My name is Eleanor and I have five years of experience in wedding and event management. There is nothing I love more than seeing the ‘wow factor’ reaction on my couples’ faces when they see all the months of planning their dream wedding become a reality! Giving the bride the signal to walk down the aisle, hearing the devotion and pride in the groom’s speech and seeing all the smiles beaming from the dance floor are my favourite parts of coordinating a wedding, and what makes my job so rewarding!

“From start to finish, everything was absolutely perfect. Eleanor Pitts was our event planner, she went above and beyond at every opportunity and helped guide and accommodate us with all our planning making our journey a smooth one! She helped us with the finer details that I wouldn’t have even thought of. The venue was stunning, we weren’t aware of any faults, if there were any, we didn’t have a clue. Eleanor helped make the day perfect, thank you sooo much!”
