This time, to talk all things delicious it’s the turn of Jeanette, the Hall’s wonderful Breakfast Chef.

Hi, Jeanette! Tell us a little about yourself and what appealed to you about working at Saltmarshe Hall

I previously worked at Eggborough Power station for 25 years I started as head chef and worked my way up the ladder to facilities manager I took my redundancy last year as I intended to retire
I had 5 months where I did a lot of things that I didn't Have time to do when I was working full time. I then realised that I needed to do some kind of work as I wasn't ready to retire fully.

The job at Saltmarshe Hall came up and it suited me because of the early starts and finishing at 12 o clock as I look after my granddaughter in the afternoon. As soon as I approached Saltmarshe Hall I thought what a beautiful place it was and how lovely it would be to work there the house is set on splendid grounds and it us the ideal venue for all occasions”

Outside your important role at Saltmarshe, how do you like to spend your time?

“I enjoy all styles of weddings. I also really enjoy engaging with the wedding party, preparing breakfast for the guests and looking after the wedding party the morning, of the wedding such as taking breakfast and champagne to the bridal suite”

Saltmarshe Hall has many gorgeous rooms, if you were to plan a relaxing night away is there a particular suite that you'd love to spend a night (or two!) in?

Every bride (and groom) wants to experience sheer luxury on their wedding day. From the pretty ceremony flowers to the catering and evening entertainment, a wedding at Saltmarshe Hall promises that every detail, no matter how big or small is taken care of. So, if it’s luxury that you’re seeking, then you’re certainly in the right place!

And what about the Bridal Suite, we hear you ask? Well we certainly haven't skimped on the details there either. We understand that your first night as a man and wife should be just as memorable as the daytime celebrations. After all, this may be the first chance you’ve had to relax and look back on the day that has just unfolded. A time to pamper yourself and reminisce. 

After some very hard work and intensive renovations, at Saltmarshe Hall we are delighted to announce that our bridal suite is complete. Offering a spacious and elegant room, the bridal suite has many features, all of which have been designed with you in mind. 

Let’s take a closer look, shall we? 


The Snug

Our interior designers have been hard at work to create a room that is equally convenient as breathtakingly beautiful. 

The bridal suite not only boasts a shower room, but a Snug that allows for the bridesmaids to get ready in, or for you to take a breather before you head down the sweeping staircase to exchange vows. With additional seating, this cosy space is a wonderful addition to Saltmarshe Hall. 


Idyllic Views

With opulent front-facing windows, you can watch from a distance as your guests arrive down the driveway. But don’t worry! They won’t get a sneak peak, our voile curtains ensure that nobody can see in, but they still let in enough light for great make-up lighting. 


Mirror Mirror

An elegant mirror has been placed in the bridal suite with prime position in mind. It’s both large enough for full-length photographs and for you to get ready with ease.


A Free-Standing Bath

Overlooking the picturesque parkland of Saltmarshe Hall, a free-standing bath sits pretty in the window. Perfect for the bride and groom to unwind after a whirlwind of a day, before tucking into the comfiest of beds.
