Q&A with Gayle
Gayle is a fashion and celebrity stylist who, over the past 25 years, has made her way to the very top of the fashion industry from Fashion Director on Harrods magazine to Style Director on The Voice UK. Her resume boasts a fusion of editorial titles such as Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, Interview, Hello! and Instyle and television work, such as Dancing On Ice, It Takes Two and The Voice where she has been responsible for creatively directing the style vision for presenters and contestants alike.
Gayle’s easy going, yet intensely professional and hard working reputation has gained her many leading celebrity clients over the years, including Zoe Ball, Helen Mirrem, Alesha Dixon, Tess Daly, Vick Hope and Binky Felstead many of whom request her in both a professional and personal capacity.
It’s this acute eye for trends fused with her personable, friendly and sympathetic approach to women and their style needs that has lead to her expansion into personal styling and wardrobe/lifestyle consultancy.
Whether it be a total wardrobe overhaul, a one on one shopping day in preparation for a special occasion, an in depth low down on the coming trends, or even an intricate workshop on how to customise and update garments, Gayle promises to give modern multi-tasking women a unique experience. Her in-depth style know-how teamed with her ‘girl next door’ approach is a winning formula which will boost women’s style identity and confidence, transforming the way they dress, shop and feel.
To prepare you for the nuptials – and for the equally important clay shoot diversions to follow – we have engaged two hair stylists and two makeup artists from Sheffield’s finest salon – The Stylebar! They will be located in the partners’ boudoir, part of the main marquee, to blow dry and style your hair and put the final touches to your make up. A great chance to chat to your friends over a refreshing tipple as the clock winds down to the wedding anthems.

Guided tour of Chatsworth
– The House
A bespoke tour just for the DCCS partners of the restoration and conservation work completed on the house over the last decade with Sean Doxey, Head of Special Projects. Chatsworth has never looked in such immaculate condition since the day it was first built. Sean, who has worked on the house for over thirty five years, will explain how. He has overseen every aspect of the recent works and will lead you to the parts that other visitors do not reach.
1000 & 1100
Guided tour of Chatsworth
– The Gardens
Join Steve Porter, Head of Gardens and Landscape at Chatsworth, for a tour of the latest garden developments, as well going behind the scenes into various glasshouses, such as the vinery and service house. If the last decade has been mainly about the house, the next ten years will place great emphasis on the park and gardens – with expert assistance from world leading garden designers such as Dan Pearson and Tom Stuart-Smith. Steve will lead you around some of the most eye catching developments, sharing along the way a gold mine of fascinating historical and botanical titbits.
NB numbers are limited to 25 on each tour so if you would like to join either tour
please email email@example.com
Tickets are available if you would like to enjoy a self-guided tour of the house and garden. It’s a chance to admire the beauty of the house and to see the current exhibition, Chatsworth Renewed, in your own time and explore over 105 acres of water features, giant sculptures and beautiful flowers in the garden.
