Expanded role for manager as weddings take centre stage
A TALENTED general manager at one of Grimsby’s most popular bistro and function venues is expanding his role as group wedding co-ordinator.
Callum Kirkley has taken on the role at Cleethorpes’ Tale of Two and Abbys, in Abbeygate, Grimsby where he is also General Manager.
Both venues have wedding licences, with capacity for intimate ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and receptions.
For Callum, the new position is an opportunity he relishes: “I really enjoy making people's days and helping to create special weddings. It is a great feeling to make people so happy,” he said.
Callum (20) will be guiding couples from the first time they make an enquiry, offering both venues for ceremonies and receptions.
“It is surprising how every wedding is different,” said Callum.
“Some couples in Cleethorpes want to marry at the Register Office just around the corner and join us for the reception – often selecting our Tapas menu.
“While others, especially at Abbys, will want the whole day and the more traditional three-courses for their guests with an evening buffet. But whatever a couple wants, we are happy to help,” he added.
Callum has been part of the Abbys Group team for three years, having started as a kitchen porter at the Riverside – which is now the Tale of Two.
“This new role for Callum reflects the commitment we have to ensure couples are given every help they need as they plan the most important day of their lives,” said Abbys Group owner Liz Parry.
