May Hunter is the fairy godmother of fantastic weddings! With years of event experience under her belt, May is the fabulous wedding coordinator from Dunkeld House Hotel and is ready to make your wedding dreams come true.
A Perthshire gal through and through, May understands the importance of family values. Her family are her biggest inspiration and their hard work and determination have been a constant inspiration throughout her life, so it’s no wonder that she has made a career being part of one of the biggest family gatherings in a couple’s life.
May is the friendly face that will be the guiding support throughout your wedding from your first initial meeting to liaising with suppliers and making sure the whole day runs smoothly and is relaxing and memorable for all guests.
Have you ever wondered what a wedding planner’s job entails? To mark the beginning of the month of Love we have went behind the scenes with four of Perthshire’s most prestigious wedding coordinators getting to know the faces behind your wedding day!
May has given us a glimpse of the hustle and bustle of everyday life of one of the most important job roles a person can have. May is one busy women! A typical day involves emails, enquiries, duty manager shifts, making appointments, organising weddings, producing brochures and marketing material. When she isn’t working on her day to day tasks you can find her organising wedding fairs, working on budgets and guiding new couples around the gorgeous Dunkeld House Hotel.
It takes a real people person to be a wedding coordinator and May is full of charisma. Her favourite part of her job is meeting new couples, working with them throughout the years of planning and watching them take their vows and walk down the aisle as husband and wife.
