Elise Preston - the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle

Elise Preston is the Wedding Co-ordinator for the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle. She took the time to answer some questions…


Tell us a little about your business…
Located in the heart of cosmopolitan Fremantle, only 20 minutes from Perth CBD, is the four star International 300 guest room Esplanade Hotel Fremantle.

This outstanding venue blends the charm of a bygone era with new modern reception venues and state-of-the-art facilities to ensure that your wedding reception is a day to remember. The hotel offers a choice of four reception venues, including our resort swimming pool surrounds that provide the picture perfect reception venue.

From as little as 20 to a maximum of 660 sit down guests, you will experience a truly memorable wedding reception. Select from a wide choice of innovative and tempting menus with local and national wines to complement every course. The Esplanade Hotel Fremantle is a specialist at tailoring the complete wedding package to satisfy your needs.

What is your role in the business and why are you passionate about it?
I am the Wedding Coordinator at the four star international Esplanade Hotel Fremantle. Passionate about every wedding, I enjoy liaising with my client’s individual needs from the first conversation until the follow up after the grand event. My philosophy is to discuss wedding plans with couples in depth ensuring that every detail and expectation is covered. I approach every wedding with an intrinsic flair, creativity and attention to detail in order to ensure the couples dream wedding experience is memorable.

How long have you been working in the industry?
I began my career in hospitality over five years ago at the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle. My experience in food and beverage operations, front office management and events has definitely made it easier to ensure my clients events run smoothly.

What is one of your favourite recollections from your business?
All of my experiences are so different and special which makes my job really fresh and exciting. I recently coordinated a wedding reception where the bride came out for the bridal waltz in roller skates and did her dance skating around the dance floor. It was unexpected and fun to watch. Each couple have their own unique qualities and expectations, which can be challenging but I pride myself in meeting and exceeding all special requests. I enjoy helping couples make lasting memories.

Tell us a bit about your family and home life…
I am very close to my family and I consider my mum to be my role model and biggest inspiration in life. She started her own business from our kitchen and twelve years on she is one of Australia’s top business women managing an international company. I draw a lot of inspiration from her many achievements.

How do you enjoy spending your spare time?
Having grown up in Margaret River I enjoy visiting the area. I have a large family and I love seeing them as often as I can. Watching families come together is beautiful and truly rewarding and is one of the reasons why I love my job.

What is your most memorable life experience?
I cherish my international travels. I have seen beautiful things and met interesting people with such unique stories. Seeing a Broadway show in New York was amazing but the Greek Islands are my favourite. Santorini is breathtaking and the life on the Island of Ios is something I have never experienced before.

What are your plans for the future?
The people I work with are so friendly which makes it a really enjoyable place to work. I have been given great opportunities working at the hotel. I love weddings and enjoy the versatility of the hotel and its uniqueness. Personally I look forward to getting married and hope that’s on the cards for me in the near future.


Book your wedding reception at the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle for the months of January, February, June, July or August and you will receive:
- complimentary hot pre dinner canapés (chef’s own selection)
- complimentary overnight accommodation in one of our well appointed guest rooms for the bride and groom’s parents on the night of the wedding reception, including valet parking.
