Meet Our Wedding Coordinator

 


Hannah Anderson 


Hannah has been at Westminster for almost five years running the hospitality department. Getting married at the college herself back in  2016, Hannah knows the building inside out so is the perfect person to answer all your queries!

Congratulations on your engagement! We are so pleased that you have shown interest in our venue!

I would love to help build the wedding of your dreams at Westminster College. From our first point of contact until your big day, I will be with you every step to make sure this journey is as stress free and exciting as possible!

A bit about me

I have been working in hospitality for over ten years in various hotel settings. I started at Westminster over four years ago as maternity cover. Fast forward to 2019,  as well as being Hospitality Manager, I am the Wedding Coordinator too! 

I  absolutely love weddings and everything about them! A lot of time is spent planning, prepping and pulling together the big day, but it really is worth it to see the smiles and laughter.

The college is absolutely beautiful, and has this timeless and classical setting that draws you in. I had my own wedding here back in 2016, so I really know all the ins and outs of the building, and can offer recommendations and advice if you need it.

You can find some of our photos in the gallery section- but here’s a little taster!

As your personal wedding coordinator, I can assist you with as much or as little as you need throughout the process. I will be there on the day of your wedding to make sure everything runs perfectly. 

I like to invite all couples for a coffee at the college, so we can have a casual chat about your requirements and to show you around the building. 

If you would like to meet, please feel free to call me on 01223 330636 or email hlp39@cam.ac.uk to arrange a date. 

I really look forward to meeting you!

Hannah

Help Luisa Meet Needs!


Our Business Development Manager- Luisa, will be running the Royal Parks Half Marathon on 14th October 2018 for Meeting Needs Charity.

“I’m running for Meeting Needs the Event Industry Charity an industry I know well and that I’m passionate about. I have seen the positive effects for those who attend, and the wider community that support the delivery of, events. Meeting Needs reaches further supporting people much less fortunate than ourselves in the name of the events sector.

They support approximately 30 projects each year, distributing £130,000 in cash to worthy causes in the UK and Overseas to organisations that find it difficult to access mainstream funding. The Royal parks Half Marathon is a major source of income for the Charity.”

In the past year examples of the sort of projects they have funded are:

• “South London Cares” a charity that seeks to alleviate the issues of loneliness and isolation amongst older and younger people in South London. Our grant of £4,000 will help fund their winter Social Clubs so that older and younger neighbours can share time, company, laughter and friendship

• “Clowns without Borders” is a Charity whose purpose is to provide relief from need and suffering of people, in particular children and young people, who are resident in areas of crisis. Our grant of £4,099 towards providing opportunities for play and laughter to during the colder months of the year” for 600 children living in the refugee camps of Athens.

Luisa needs to raise £500 to be able to run and to send to Meeting Needs. If you are able to contribute in any way, we would be so grateful. This is a tough challenge that not many could do- but the reward is incredible.


Thank You for all your donations.

Go Luisa!

Westminster College 

The Woolf Institute’s Royal Opening

On Monday 16th April, our neighbours over at the Woolf Institute were celebrating a Royal opening of their permanent home on this site. The Woolf Institute was founded in 1998 by Dr Edward Kessler and Reverend Professor Martin Forward. The aim was to provide an ‘academic framework and space in which people could tackle issues of religious difference constructively’.

HRH The Princess Royal arriving with Dr Ed Kessler.

HRH The Princess Royal, the Patron of the Capital Appeal, and supporter of the Woolf Institute was welcomed to the site by Dr Ed Kessler MBE, Founding Director of the Woolf Institute.

In his speech, Dr Kessler said “The brief research presentations demonstrate a pursuit of wisdom, understanding and knowledge, not for their own sake but rather, to foster a society at ease with itself, in which individuals, groups and communities feel at home, and in whose flourishing all wish to take part.  Our new home will house many such actions; in the UK, with new research projects on religious fundamentalism and building resilience in Muslim communities, new courses on migration and immigration as well as a summer school, new audiences reached through our media suite such as the new podcast series, ‘Encounter’”.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the hard work and dedication it took to bring the Woolf Institute to life in its new home, and the continuous work to educate and bring communities together to coexist peacefully.
