Enjoyable Experience

Hi Elaine, Thanks so much for making our strategy day in the Trades Hall such an enjoyable experience. The meeting room and catering were perfect and the venue very much enhanced by David’s very knowledgeable mini-tour at lunch time.
We were all most impressed by one of Glasgow’s hidden treasures. Please pass on our thanks to The Trades Hall staff.

Special and Magical

David, you were an absolute star. I cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day so very special and magical. I didn’t worry about a thing knowing you were our wedding coordinator.
You sold the Trades Hall to us from the first day I met you but honestly it was even better than I imagined. We are so grateful.
We are going to New York tomorrow but we will definitely stay in touch as would love to pop in to see you and thank you personally. Lots of love xxx

Black Tie Skinners Dinner

A Formal dinner on the appointment of the new Deacon of the Trade – Skinners and Glovers was highly successful.The spacious, historic, Great Hall with its amazing freize is a wonderful venue. Impeccable catering by The Corinthian whose staff provided superb attention at all times.
Although difficult to choose between excellent staff, of particular note was Kim, who provided a friendly, efficient and welcoming service – nothing seemed too much trouble throughout the evening. A superb evening indeed.
This historic venue is well worth a visit when in Glasgow city centre.

Over the Moon

I don’t think I have had the chance to tell you how perfect our wedding day was. It was honestly perfect. Just perfect. Everyone was so pleased and happy. The groom was over the moon and very impressed with the day and organization of everything, which in turn made me very happy.

– Jessica & Matthew

 

Icing on the Cake

I would like to say ‘Thank You’ to you and your team for making the day of my son Craig and his fiancée Laura’s wedding a joy. We had family and friends traveling from all over the UK and everyone had positive comments related to the day and the reception. The venue speaks for itself but the attention to detail from yourselves and the calmness you managed the event with, were the icing on the cake. It is clear that you have a wealth of experience in handling this type of event however your manner and attitude made the day so relaxing for concerned parents who were able to enjoy it all without worrying about the formalities. Craig and Laura are now on honeymoon but they have left with so many happy memories of their day that we will all cherish for a long time.
Thank you once again,

– Karine and Gordon Leggatt – for Craig & Laura

Wonderful and stress free

Just wanted to thank you, David and everyone else who helped make our wedding day the most amazing day.
Everything was perfect and this was down to all the hard work put in by yourselves. Nothing was too much trouble, all my wacky ideas were greeted with enthusiasm and help to put them in place. Both you and David were fantastic planning everything to detailed level giving us both comfort that the day would be perfect.
On the actual day everything went to plan. One of the main things I remember was that every time I turned around a member of your team was standing waiting with a glass of fizz for me :-)
Thank you once again for organising the most perfect, wonderful and stress free day of our lives.

– Pamela & Charlie
