Zoe Strong

Channels In-house Manager.

I have been at Channels now for over ten years, and in that time I can honestly say I have never woke up and thought...I don't want to go to work! My job role here is now in-house manager, a role that I will always be proud of. I love the personal touches we make here, we really do make every effort to get to know each and every bride and groom from the moment they book their wedding here at Channels. We are very fortunate, being a family run business that we can make weddings feel as personal and individual as we know couples would want.

"Zoe was fantastic at making sure that everything ran smoothly. You are a credit to Channels."

Samantha Reynolds

Channels Wedding & Events Coordinator

Currently on maternity leaving but we are looking forward to Samantha returning to the team in the near future.

I have been a part of the Channels family for a year & a half and been in the wedding industry for almost five years. In this time I would say I have completely found my passion, making sure my couples are happy, stress free and that their wedding day really is the most magical day of their lives is something I thrive on. Being a hopeless romantic, I instantly fell in love with everything that is the world of weddings & events, I feel completely blessed that I get to do it every day of the week.

"Sam was amazing, she was there whenever I needed her and made me a little less stressed making sure everything ran smoothly."

David Perry

I have been working at Channels for over 30 years and worked within weddings here for 20, I am extremely committed, enthusiastic and I always have bounds of energy.

The most important part about my job to me is the relationships I build with my couples, with years of experience I am full of wedding knowledge and think of the Essex Barn as my second home, so I know what works well within our venue and I love helping to create couples visions of their dream weddings here.

"Can I say a very big thank you to Dave and the whole of Channels for making our day amazing from beginning to end."

Dannielle Brown

Senior Wedding & Events Co-ordinator

My name is Dannielle but most people call me Danni. I have worked for the company for nine years. I worked at Channels for five years before I was transferred to Little Channels where I am now the in-house manager.

My favourite part of a wedding day has to be the speeches. There is nothing more special than a father of the bride talking about his daughter of her wedding day. We have had a range of speeches from a re-enactment of a one direction song to a speech bringing a tear to the eye of the most unsuspecting guest. Each set of speeches are so individual and for a short period of time, you feel accepted as part of their family.

"We got married at Little Channels and it couldn't have been anymore perfect. The staff were amazing, particularly Dannielle."

Jason Evans

In-house Manager

My journey at The Channels Estate started back in August 2013 when I joined the team at Little Channels.

As my first job, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the world of weddings and events, it didn't take long to find out why they're such a privilege to be a part of. Having started out as part of the service team, I have worked every aspect of the wedding day; culminating into an extensive knowledge of our venue in my role as a wedding coordinator. As a perfectionist, I believe it essential to go the extra mile to ensure a faultless and magical day and am very proud of our team that has received such high praise on many occasions. My favourite part of the wedding day has to be seeing the pure emotion in the Bride and Groom before and after their ceremony. To witness people go from such nervous excitement to sheer joy (and relief) can't be beaten.

"The day went incredibly smoothly and everything was excellent. We know we did ask for a few unconventional things! A special thank you to Jason."

Emma Simmonds

I’m Emma, a Wedding Coordinator at Little Channels. I started my journey with the Channels Family back in 2007 as a part time waitress during my studies at Essex University. I have now developed my skills and passion to manage a variety of tasks to ensure a perfect wedding day for the special couple and their family. I love that I get to develop a personal relationship with each couple; I feel it is truly the key to making each wedding a unique and special day to remember.

I have a keen eye for detail which helps me to focus on even the smallest of aspects helping to create the day of your dreams. It brings me genuine joy to work side by side with the couple and their families during this, their most memorable of occasions.

"Emma was very professional and made our day run perfectly."
