Every single member of our team plays an important part in your big day – whether that’s behind the scenes making sure every detail is perfectly organised, or by your side to keep things running seamlessly. We couldn’t be prouder of them!
The personal touches they each provide makes your wedding extra special, and they will go out of their way if you need anything at all. We’re here seven days a week – so you never have to worry about a thing.
As a mobile DJ of 15 years I have always loved creating a good party atmosphere and seeing people enjoy themselves, so when I realised we lived in a beautiful venue it seemed a great opportunity to not only share this space but also give people a great time with friends and family. As it was such a great experience, people wanted us to recreate it at other venues and events so the events company was born!
Dreaming about the next project to further enhance the services we offer! Feeding my girls (the cows, yes, it is still a 165 acre working farm!) and supporting our amazing team in whatever shape or form they might require.
I love working with our team. The mix of staff and their different skills and personalities makes it very interesting and diverse. Its great to watch the younger members develop their skills and abilities throughout the years too.
My proudest moment was when we were announced winners of the Best wedding and events team in the North West in the wedding industry awards. We have always believed that we try hard to do a great job but it is really nice to be recognised for it. Another proud moment has to be the annual festival, Triplefest. Last year we handed over £21,000 to charity and it’s a great feeling to know the money is going to great causes. As its all ran by volunteers, it brings the local community together, and some neighbours get to meet each other for the first time!
Listen to those who have done it before, experience speaks volumes!!!
We opened up our family farm to couples for them to use as a wedding venue back in 1999. As the business grew and grew, it seemed like natural progression to improve the service that we offered and started the events management company, Heaton House Events.
I love meeting couples and showing them around my beautiful venue. When I get the time I love being creative, so I bake our famous home-made banana loaf for our accommodation guests, and enjoy titivating the water gardens. I also support the laundry, housekeeping and venue teams to ensure everything is finished to a high standard.
Working with such a great team to make sure that every event is brilliant, also, I don’t have to travel far to work!
Not only watching it grow from a farm, and hosting our first wedding to a successful, busy company, but winning The Wedding Industry Awards best Events Team in the North West for two years running!
We all work together to have fun and to make the best day possible for all of our brides and grooms. Also, we love smiling faces!
Have fun and enjoy it!
I have been involved in events since I was 4, it’s in my blood! My parents organised a family fun day and since then it has grown in to a 3 day weekend called Triplefest. Back in 2000, my family took the decision to diversify the farm to a wedding venue and I can remember getting off the school bus, running in to the barn with my bags dropping them on the floor and help my Mum place favours neatly around the table. Needless to say, I have a keen eye for detail and enjoy wandering around the events taking place making sure everything is set up perfectly.
It really varies! One day I can be researching a new system to improve our services that we offer, to another where I can be launching it!
I also look after our on-line presence such as keeping the website up to date with images that photographers send us of past events, and of course social media, which now makes up a massive part of the service that we offer. Our clients are always messaging or tweeting me and I love replying back to them, so if you ever wondered who it was replying; now you know!
The people! Whether it’s my colleagues, or clients – they are all great!
Literally starting from the bottom and working through many different stages, I’ve had many roles through my time with Heaton House Events, I’ve developed them and they’ve developed me.
My most recent achievement would have to be when we won The Wedding Industry Award for best Events Team in the North West, not only in 2015, but 2016 also – so proud!
Come and have a look around, meet the team and see what all the fuss is about!
I’m going to have to do two…
1 – Don’t follow blogs or magazines word for word, after all, they are writers and might not have much event experience. The best advice can be achieved from chatting to suppliers and asking for their extensive knowledge, they know who they work well with to achieve the best results.
2 – Create a brand. Some of my favourite events have featured a unique monogram. This has been on the event invites, which really sets the scene with the guests, and even featured on the dining table stationery and on gobo lighting looks great too!

Events Team Manager
I carried out a week of work experience as part of my Events Management degree back in 2011 and saw four very different weddings during that time period. I was absolutely wowed by the variety of events and the beauty of the venue and I knew I had to apply to work here full time when given the opportunity.
The team at the venue are amazing and something we are extremely proud of. I also love the stunning location and the blank canvas that the venue offers meaning that we get to see a huge range of different weddings and events that truly reflect our clients personalities.
My favourite thing to do outside of work is to see my family and friends!
My proudest achievement was probably running my first wedding back in 2012. After months of intense training, I finally had the opportunity to run my own wedding and I was so proud of myself when everything went to plan and the couple were overjoyed. I still feel proud after each and every event as it is always a lovely feeling to hear your couples are happy and you know you have been a part of bringing everything together for their special day.
If you are looking to join a super friendly team where no day is ever the same, Heaton House is the place for you!
Make it personal to you and don’t overthink! do all your planning before the day so that you can fully relax and enjoy the day!
Events & Sales Manager
I have always wanted to work within the events industry, I studied Events Management at University which only increased my desire. As soon as I saw the job advertised, I knew it would be the perfect job for me and I was right. Heaton House is a fantastic company to work for.
I spend my day doing a wide variety of tasks as an Event Coordinator. I could be showing our lovely couples around our fantastic venue, answering emails and phone calls, conducting a final meeting with my assigned couples or running their wedding day for them.
The best thing about working at Heaton House Events is the people I work with. Furthermore, that every day is different, no wedding or office day is ever the same.
My proudest achievements whilst working at Heaton House Events was when I got my first confirmed booking after showing them around the venue and running my first wedding here.
Heaton House is like no other wedding venue, be prepared to never stop learning with no two days ever being the same. You will work with a great team, who are always there to help you and push you forward to succeed in everything you do. It is not a decision you will regret.
To be organised with your planning, ensure the registrars and suppliers are booked in plenty of time to ease the stress for you. But most of all to have fun whilst doing it, if you are enjoying yourselves so will your guests and that makes a brilliant event.
Senior Events Coordinator
When I saw the role advertised I knew it was something I would love to do. After spending many years working within the hospitality industry and really wanted to concentrate on events.
Heaton House was the perfect place to do this. I loved the fact it was family run just appealed to me.
Anything and everything! The days just fly by. One day I can be in the office answering emails and showing couples the venue then the next day I can be running an event! It’s all about helping all our clients, giving them a stress free day so that they can enjoy themselves!
The variety within the job, you never know what may happen when you arrive at work! Never are two days the same. Also working alongside such a brilliant team, they are supportive and more friendly than you can possibly imagine.
It should be reworded ‘proudest moments’ as every time I read a review or a thank you card from past clients saying how grateful they are for everything the team does, it always makes me proud that we achieved and exceeded their expectations! Nothing beats that feeling.
Just do it! You won’t regret it, you will be working for a great company, alongside an amazing team in a beautiful location! What more I can say?!
The key is organisation. Ensure you have a super organised team who can plan and run an event for you!
After working as an Events Assistant for nearly 3 years it only made my passion to work in the events industry even stronger. I have heard such great things about not only the venue but the team at Heaton House Farm, so when I saw the Junior Event Coordinator role advertised it was an opportunity not to be missed to further my career in the industry – the friendly team and rolling countryside are a huge bonus!
I love to spend time with my friends, family and of course our dog, Honey. I have recently bought my first house with my partner, and I have discovered my love for decorating!
There are many proud achievement’s I have had during my time at Heaton House Farm, from receiving thank you cards off my couples because they have such a great day with us, to running my first non-wedding event, a Birthday Party! This was a huge learning curve for me and I was so proud when everything came together.
The most important tip is to enjoy and embrace your planning stages! Make sure you have everything ticked off for the day to ensure you can completely relax and leave the work to us.
100% the location and the fact we are surrounded by farm animals all day. As I arrived at work one day I witnessed a cow giving birth which was amazing! You can’t get that anywhere else.
Go for it! If you are looking for somewhere where no two days are the same and you are constantly learning with an amazing team then you will fit straight in!
Getting to work at this beautiful venue. The amazing, friendly team that have supported and welcomed me since day one, and of course getting to see all the different ideas for people’s events come to life!
My proudest moment working at Heaton House Farm so far would be when I got my first confirmed booking after showing them around the venue!
Be organised, do your research and just have fun along the way!
I wanted to develop my career in Events and not only did I love the venue and its location, I had also heard great things about the staff and really wanted to be part of the team. I also really liked the idea that it was family run and on a working farm, so when I saw the role advertised I applied straight away!
If you are looking for somewhere where no two days are the same, with a friendly team and the best location then don’t think twice! It will be the best decision you make!
When I’m not being a crazy cat lady to my fur baby, I love spending time with family and friends!
I had just graduated from University in a subject I then didn’t want to continue with and I was very much lost. My brother spotted a receptionist role at our local wedding venue and so I went for it. The team here took me under their wing, looked at my skills and have now developed and trained me in marketing, and I’ve never looked back.
I am absolutely loving my role in marketing! My day consists of scouting through stunning photographs from the weddings that have taken place here, Pinteresting, hash-tagging, writing blogs and content for the website and then when we have guests stay I look after them and check them in and out ensuring they have a lovely stay. I also love showing newly engaged couples around the venue, it’s amazing to be a part of their wedding planning experience.
There’s never a quiet moment here but if you ever have something you need help on, there is always a helping hand. It’s all about being a team here and it was fantastic to stand on the stage with my colleagues at The Wedding Industry Awards and accept the Best Events Team in the North West!
When I joined Heaton House Events I was very much a city girl, patterned fashion wellies and fancy fur coats and hats, and I had a huge fear of animals! After a few months here you can now catch me walking through fields with sheep and stood in the middle of cows with a bull staring at me! I DIDN’T EVEN RUN AWAY!
Come along, give 100%, use your skills and they will be put to good use and there is room to progress internally.
Not everything in life comes easy, but with hard work and a helping hand, anything is possible! You have just got to make sure you enjoy it along the way.
Bar & Hospitality Manager
Bar & Hospitality Manager
I had a recommendation from a friend who already worked here and told me what a wonderful place it was to work so I applied straight away!
As I am mainly responsible for the bar, I need to make sure that we offer an amazing range of products that are well presented by a team who are passionate about great service.
The best thing about Heaton House Events is the team work, every single department throughout the venue; the laundry, office, events, venue and housekeeping, everyone has to pull together to ensure our couples have an amazing day from start to finish.
I was overwhelmed to be offered the position of Hospitality and Bar Manager after only working for the company for such a short time. But my personal proudest moment was riding a segway by Madrenaline Activities at my first staff night, my legs were quivering but I did it and ended up in an egg and spoon race, it was fantastic! Scary! But fantastic!
Come and have a look around. I knew it was a place I really wanted to work from the moment I came for my interview.
Make sure you relax and enjoy your day. It’s our job to take care of everything so make sure you make the most of every moment.
Venue Team Leader
I wanted to be part of a local company that has such an excellent reputation within the events industry.
Working within a team, that pulls together to deliver outstanding and often unique events. It’s also a pleasure to work in such a stunning venue with beautiful countryside surroundings.
I enjoy travel, both nationally and further afield, exploring the world. This gives me an opportunity to learn about different cultures and meet some great people along the way.
Managing a team that has really pulled together to deliver amazing events as the venue reopened after the Covid lockdown
Definitely come and give us a go. You’ll be met with a warm welcome by a highly supportive team and you’ll feel very much at home.
Planning well in advance, making sure that everything is in place in good time, combined with a team that are trained and well prepared for the different tasks that each event presents.
I knew Heaton House through reputation as being a fantastic wedding venue, and knew Mick, the owner, through the Young Farmers group and knew he would be a great boss! So took the step to apply.
We care greatly about our accommodation rooms and it is my job to ensure the rooms are serviced correctly and to the highest standards ahead of our guests checking in.
The team, every day is great as we always have a laugh together and pull together when the job needs to be done. If you ever need anything, there is always someone happy to help.
I am proud of every review stating the quality of our accommodation as this is the biggest reward we could have; guest satisfaction.
Expect the unexpected because every day is different.
Plan carefully so that on the day you can relax and we can ensure everything goes without a hitch.
Venue Team Leader
My daughter got married here in 2010 and I fell in love with the venue and thought it’d be nice to work here too – I was very right! Being on the other side of the event is just as fun.
I do varied jobs throughout the venue, including cooking breakfast in The Old Stableyard, housekeeping and helping to set the venue up for the events and weddings taking place.
My favourite thing about Heaton House Events is the atmosphere; it’s so lovely to work amongst such lovely people, we really are one big happy family.
We have numerous staff nights throughout the year, last year we had a delicious 3 course meal provided by Vanilla in Allseasons alongside an awards ceremony, I was over the moon to receive the highly commended ‘Rising Star Award’, it’s great to feel so appreciated in what you do.
I would definitely recommend coming along and joining our award winning team, you won’t regret it!
Relax, enjoy and let the team do their thing!
