Andy: It was the first time I’ve worked with you guys. I actually came to site and you were actually doing the full production of someone’s wedding. And it was just from the start to the end, how you dealt with it, your client, and the actual wedding itself and how… you were very caring about it and were making sure everything was on key. And it was one of those ones where you just thought, “It’s a no-brainer. Those guys definitely have to be at my wedding.”

PP015 | Pippa Crossman | Berkeley Castle | How to Design Bespoke Events at Venues of Historical Importance

Pippa Crossman is the Weddings and Events Planner at Berkeley Castle. Together with her team, she produces various events each year at a venue that has been family home to the Berkeley’s for 900 years! The most remarkable thing about the Castle is that for nine centuries, the building, the Berkeley family, the archives (which go back to the 12th Century), the contents, the estate and the town have all survived together. Its place in history is significant, not just because it is still intact, but because the Berkeley family and their home have played an important part in the power struggles of so many centuries. In this episode Pippa talks to Toby about the challenges she faces putting on an event in one of the most beautifully preserved, living pieces of history in the world.
