Perks Of Using A Planner

Perks of Using a Planner

Mapperton House & Gardens works with many incredible event and wedding planners. Jennifer Jane Eveleigh owns Eveleigh Events and has a wedding planning service available for set-up and coordination. Our Venue Coordinators love working with Jennifer as she is brimming with creative ideas!

From the moment our couples instruct us, the buzz of excitement begins. There’s no bigger honour than being asked to be part of and indeed help run one of the most important days of someone’s life.

Greeted by one of the team at Mapperton, couples are invited to enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of delicious homemade cake in the newly renovated Coach House. Exploring Mapperton further, our couples discover more ceremony options from the quaint Garden Pavilion, the beautiful Orangery to the intimate Grottos dotted in the heart of the gardens.

Heading down into the Fountain Court area, it’s the perfect place for drinks receptions, live music, mingling with friends and family and enjoying your perfect day.

At Mapperton, we communicate regularly with our brides and grooms throughout the process of their planning, making recommendations of local suppliers and of course help when things are getting a little stressful.


With only a week left to go, that’s when it all starts to come together. Confirming your final numbers, details and suppliers, Jennifer is always on hand should you need her, to help you liaise and create, transforming your ideas into reality.

The day itself, many of our brides opt to wake up in Garden Cottage, included in venue hire, which overlooks the amazing estate gardens of which Mapperton is famous for. The bridal suite is the perfect room for being pampered by local stylists and make-up artists all while enjoying a glass of Mapperton’s very own sparkling wine.

Jennifer Jane Eveleigh speaks to Mapperton about running weddings at Mapperton.

“If you choose to hire Eveleigh Events for your special day, we are on site co-ordinating the suppliers and making sure every little detail has been considered. Most brides dread a rainy wedding day, however with the British weather this is sometimes unavoidable. We prep our wedding parties to make sure there is no disappointment – rain can actually make a day even more fun. Just think of the incredible photos capturing the moment rain drops fall or a child screams with laughter the moment they jump into a puddle.

Imagine vintage milk churns full of clear umbrellas, wooden potato baskets full of organic cotton blankets, canopies of fairy lights to brighten the darkest of days and a member of staff on hand for every tiny thing you may need!”

“As your guests begin to arrive, we are on hand to direct. Whether it be to Mapperton’s very own Church, the Garden Pavilion on the Croquet Lawn or the Coach House, we’ll make sure your guests are entertained while you finish getting ready. And, we’ll be on hand throughout the whole day to make sure everything runs as it should.”

“Co-ordinating a wedding at Mapperton is as much fun as being in the wedding party itself!”
