Meet our team – at your service.
Teamwork really does make the dream work and here at Pylewell we are so lucky to have a brilliant team who just adore weddings and looking after guests. We are proud to offer a personal, flexible approach from start to finish. Hanging out here doing what we love never really feels like work. We can’t wait to welcome you.
Director of Pylewell Park Weddings & Events
Mel is one of our directors here at Pylewell. She launched Pylewell as a weddings and events business 3 years ago and it has been a whirlwind ever since the word go! From overseeing the build of our pavilion back in 2018 to managing our first year of weddings in 2019 and most recently working with the team to refurbish the house before the next wedding season began, it’s been busy.
Voted as one of ’30 under 30’ stars of the hospitality industry by The Caterer magazine, Mel is a huge hospitality enthusiast with over 10 years experience working in the luxury boutique sector for a number of award-winning chefs, restaurants and hotels. Lymington is now home and Mel is very involved in all our weddings and events here at Pylewell as well as overseeing the team. When not at Pylewell you will find her out on the water, or in the forest with her black Labrador, Biddy.
Edit is our superstar housekeeper and is responsible for much of our beautiful recent refurbishment; from painting and decorating to assisting with reupholstering furniture. She has meticulous attention to detail and it's thanks to her the house always looks so spotless.
On wedding weekends she is responsible for meeting and greeting guests, keeping your rooms fully stocked and clean, and providing the all-important breakfast after the night before! Edit is an accomplished horticulturist, loves baking and gardening, and tending to the beautiful vegetable garden at Pylewell.
Wedding and Event Team
Jane works in our events office and is often the first point of contact for visitors or new enquiries here at Pylewell. She works closely with our couples from start to finish, and is a mix of super organised but very creative; the perfect combination when it comes to weddings!
She loves working with our couples on their wedding plans and seeing events come to life. Jane’s adorable dog Florence is a key member of our office team and you will often find the pair of them out enjoying the beautiful grounds of Pylewell in their lunch break.
Maintenance and Housekeeper
Zoltan is our go-to for anything we need fixing or mending in the house. We often joke that we are yet to find something he cannot do. Zoltan is a wonderful carpenter, decorator, handyman and furniture restorer. He is often found in his workshop restoring items from the house and much of our beautiful refurbishment is down to his handiwork. On wedding days Zoltan and Edit work closely together looking after guests and ensuring every detail is perfectly looked after from the moment you arrive.
Robert is our full-time gardener and has been with Pylewell for over 22 years, seeing much of the Roper-Curzon family grow up around him. Responsible for perfect stripes on the lawn on wedding days and keeping on top of the house gardens as well as the estate, Robert is kept very busy here at Pylewell.
He is a fountain of knowledge about the house and gardens and would be delighted to suggest suitable areas for foraging or sourcing foliage to add to your wedding flowers. He loves old machinery and can often be found on his old Dennis lawnmower creating perfect lawns, generally making the gardens look wonderful, or relaxing down by the lake – one of his favourite spots at Pylewell.
Wedding and Events Team
Aby is an Event Management student studying at Winchester University who works on a part-time basis in our events team here at Pylewell. Once she graduates in the Spring she will be joining us for her first wedding season.
An events superstar in the making, Aby is incredibly enthusiastic about weddings with an amazing attention to detail. She is huge support role to the team here at Pylewell always going above and beyond to ensure our team are fully prepped and ready to go on event days.
Don't just take our word for it…
We fell in love with Mel as much as the venue, she went above and beyond from the moment we met her.
Thank you so much Team Pylewell, your enthusiasm, attention to detail and care was noted by all our guests.
Although we had doubts about a micro wedding, your team made us feel so special from the moment we arrived and were utterly exceptional.
There is nowhere like Pylewell; attentive and fun staff who really made us feel like anything was possible.
