Meet the team

We have been hosting weddings since 2002 and in that time we have built a small but fantastic team of dedicated people who will go above and beyond to ensure your day runs without a hitch. Our three day use means we do less weddings than many larger venues, so we can focus on maintaining the high standards and attention to detail you will expect from a Crockwell wedding. We are on hand to help from your first show round through the planning process to breakfast the day after your wedding.

Bay & Hermione

Husband and wife team Bay & Hermione Harper are the original Crockwell couple, holding their wedding reception here in 1987! Crockwell is still a working farm, but, in 1998 Bay started converting the farm buildings one by one to form the extensive facilities we have today. Bay overlooks every aspect of Crockwell from the farm to the wedding venue. He shows a lot of couples around and is in charge of the countless new projects that keep the venue up to date and constantly improving. Hermione runs the office as well as conducting wedding plans and running some days. With her valuable experience, she can guide you through every aspect of your day – avoiding potential pitfalls and making the most of your time here at Crockwell. She is also responsible for Crockwell’s wonderful gardens.


Bay and Hermione’s daughter, Amy was born and raised at Crockwell. She married husband Joe in the local church of Eydon  in April 2015 and afterwards held a spectacular reception at Crockwell. After having some time out of the office with the arrival of sons Hamish and Patrick, Amy is now the driving force at Crockwell, ensuring the continuity of the family business. Among other roles Amy is integral to website development and fresh ideas keeping Crockwell at the top of the list as one of the premier wedding venues in the country.


Rosie joined us in 2016 after serving in the British Army for ten years. She now runs the office with the same military efficiency and understands completely our unique offering, working with couples to achieve the wedding of their dreams. In addition Rosie helps organise our Taster and Open evenings and works closely with the Chopping Block to ensure continuity between venue and catering.  Rosie very recently married Marcus on 15th June 2019 in a beautiful ceremony in her local church.


Laura has been part of the Crockwell team since 2004! She is an expert wedding co-ordinator, calm and controlled, she can deal with any situation and will ensure that the day runs without fault and the bride and groom are able to relax and enjoy themselves to the full. She also runs Decorations from Laura, so if you are looking for inspiration please contact her at


Harriet is responsible for our marketing and is also a helping hand in the office during busy periods. She organises our hugely popular Taster Evenings, where booked couples get the chance to see Crockwell at its best and start the planning process.


Jenn joined us at the start of 2018 after working part-time on the bar. She is now responsible for all of the rooms here at Crockwell as well as preparing and helping serve our delicious breakfasts. Jenn will continue to work behind the bar on wedding days.


Fiona joined us in 2018 as a wedding coordinator and is here to make sure your day runs smoothly from start to finish. Fiona lives locally and has her own very successful wedding dress business, The Grey Feather. She is hugely talented and one of our recommended suppliers.


Mel has been busy shadowing Laura and Fiona for the past few months and has proved herself a dab hand when it comes to coordinating. She is a calm and cheerful presence and as a mum of four, there probably isn’t much that fazes her!

We were made to feel so welcome and it was all about us (from our first visit to the moment we left) - exactly what you need when it's your wedding! I normally struggle to relax on big occasions but we trusted the staff to do a great job and they delivered - meaning we could just enjoy ourselves!
