MEET THE TEAM AT OUR CHESHIRE VENUE

“It really was the perfect day, amazing in every way which would not have been possible without Joy and the most 
amazing team at Delamere Manor, not forgetting the professional suppliers who made the day quite simply ‘the best’!”

Michelle Stubbs

MICHELLE STUBBS

DIRECTOR & FOUNDER

Michelle is delighted to open the doors of her home to the lucky couples who choose to get married and stay here.

Having worked in hospitality through most of her study years, Michelle gained a real pleasure in serving the public and especially hosting events.  Although all her studies led to a legal career, her passion has always been entertaining!

“I love hearing people’s reactions when they first enter Delamere Manor. I have worked passionately over the years to make Delamere Manor a homely and inviting environment despite its grandeur and vast grounds.”

In her spare time, Michelle loves riding her horses, working out at the gym and supporting her favourite football team Everton FC.  Michelle also loves to travel and gains many of her ideas and inspiration for Delamere Manor from her visits abroad.

“Because I travelled away a lot Delamere Manor wasn’t getting the enjoyment it deserved. I decided to put it on a holiday rental site. I was getting inundated with people enquiring if they could get married there! I thought ‘what a lovely idea!’ And that’s where the concept was born.”

Joy Head Shot

JOY HITCHEN

SALES & EVENTS MANAGER

Having travelled the world working for a private 5-star airline, Joy always knew that she wanted to continue her career within the hospitality industry. She’s been lucky enough to transfer her experience through to the events industry and in particular, Delamere Manor Events, where she has worked since 2017.

It’s a big thing to arrange your own event and at times this can become a little overwhelming. Your event should perfectly reflect you and make you feel totally yourself. I’m comfortable in the knowledge that I can provide the reassurance and confidence for you to put your trust in me and also for you to feel that you can chat to me about anything from the point of booking your event through to the day itself. My passion is to make memories from start to finish, offering more than just an event but an unforgettable experience filled with the most amazing celebrations. It’s an absolute honour and a pleasure to be a part of someone’s special day and to be able to do this as my job is simply the best! It’s also crucial to have a great team around you and I’m lucky to work with the very best at Delamere Manor. Our little team is a bunch of great, friendly people.

I can usually be found lighting the numerous candles that we have at Delamere Manor in preparation for an event, which is a full-time job in itself. When I’m not lighting candles my happy place is walking along a beautiful sandy beach with my naughty cockapoo dog, Stanley. I’m a chocoholic who also loves the occasional glass of Champagne.
