Better than we dreamed!

..We would like to say thank you for all that you did to ensure we had such a brilliant weekend. .....after months and months of planning, I don''t think it would have been so perfect had it not for you [Laura]. From the onset you were so helpful and enthusiastic and...this was the main reason for chosing the Holyrood Hotel, I definately think we made the right choice! Everyone told us it was the best wedding they had been to... Please pass on our regards and thanks to Colin and his staff who were all fabulous and to the girls [beauty] who did such a great job making me and my girls look georgous. Thanks to you again

Food was outstanding!
Venue Service

By Becky & Ian Lisseman, on 16 Jan 2007

Dear Laura, We did not get a chance sadly to thank you in person for our fantastic wedding weekend, for which we owe you so much. We were not at all stressed on the day thanks to your reassurance that all was organised and in control. The team of staff on the day were faultless, we could ask for no more, it all ran very smoothly and very informally as we wanted. The staff were so helpful, never intrusiveand helped every step of the way in making the day and whole weekend a resounding success. Many of our guests heaped praise on the staff, the facilities, the facilities, the organisation on the day and how enjoyable it was and so special to us. A specific mention must be made to the food, outstanding on every count, on every meal. We could not have done it without you, we are glad we did not and will forever owe a debt of gratitude to you. Kind Regards Becky & Ian

A very big ''Thank You''
Venue Service

By Mrs Helen Thomson Mother of the Groom, on 14 Dec 2006

A very big thank you for all that you did to make Jeremy and Louise'' wedding such a special occasion. Organising any event from a distance is challenging, but this had plenty possibilities for being a complete nightmare! In the end it was a lovely and very relaxing family gathering.... Please pass on our grateful thanks to Kim and all of your team....and we look forward to visiting Edinburgh again before too long
