After leaving Harrogate College in 2000, Nicola took a two year Hotel Management training course at a hotel in Devon. Eight years later she left Devon as Deputy Manager and Functions Co-ordinator, to return to her home near Helmsley, bringing with her, her now husband Marc.
Nicola has been with the Black Swan now for almost 4 years. Starting as a Receptionist in 2009, Nicola applied for an internal position of Wedding Co-ordinator, a job which in her own words ‘she absolutely loves’ and has found her true vocation.
In the 3 years that Nicola has been Wedding Co-ordinator at the Black Swan she has helped the hotel to achieve the accolade of being voted the ‘Best Venue’ in Yorkshire & the North East at the Wedding Industry Awards for two consecutive years.
Nicola, being the ‘home bird’ that she is loves the ‘Good Life’ looking after her chickens, veggie plot and baking. Nicola’s true dream is to one day compete on the TV show The Great British Bake Off.
Black Swan Moments
We’ve had the most amazing wedding for my Daughter & Son in Law. Everyone at The Black Swan has been so helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. Thank you so much.
