An experienced event planner has swapped the glitz and glamour of New York for the elegant beauty of Harrogate, as she takes up a key role in one of the town's best-known hotels.
Philly Smith, who has spent the last three years working predominantly for fashion houses in the USA, was appointed as wedding planner at the Majestic Hotel this year, which is nearing the completion of a £15million transformation. One of the spa town's most familiar sights, it was purchased in November 2016 by the family-run Cairn Group, which will relaunch it as Harrogate's first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel.
"The Majestic Hotel has always been a landmark of style and elegance," Philly says. "It's a very popular venue for wedding receptions, especially with our extensive gardens serving as a superb backdrop for photos. Once the transformation is complete, it'll be an even bigger draw for newlyweds-to-be."
