A typical Scottish Summer.

We have had a wonderful run of summer weddings - even though the weather has proved to be totally pants at times and consequently quite challenging as we try to ensure that every wedding day is as perfect as it can possibly be. Thunderstorms. Gales. Monsoons - we have become very good at dealing with all of them (although discovering that our signature Lazy Sunday shirts are totally see through when drenched was slightly disconcerting for those unlucky enough to be caught in the aforementioned seasonal downpours.) 

Our co-ordinators Kasia and Jen have been beyond brilliant at dealing with everything that could possibly be thrown at them and, with 3 months of the 'season' still to go, their unflappable spirit and sense of humour has been a joy to me and everyone they have worked with. I am grateful more than I could ever say to have such genuinely lovely people working with me and I thought I would share with you a recent thankyou from last weekend's wedding at the lovely Tullibole Castle. It kind of sums up the Lazy Sunday spirit, I think.

'Dear Kasia

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything you and the rest of the Lazy Sunday team did for us on Saturday. I cannot thank you enough, you helped to make it just such an amazing day. You went above and beyond what you needed to do, not only doing the food but decorating and arranging/ liaising on the day, it was just so lovely to be able to relax and enjoy our day and know that everything is running smoothly.

The food was just amazing too, as we expected! People keep commenting on the food and saying it is the best food they have had at a wedding. I was really excited for our guests to have the Lazy Sunday experience and they loved it as well so I am so pleased!!!

Please thank everyone who worked on the day for us - I'm sorry I didn't catch everyone's names but I would love them to know how grateful we are. You really have the most lovely team and it is such a long day to work so thank you to each and everyone who worked that day. I meant to come through and thank them personally before they left but I got caught up! They made ourselves and our guests feel really special

I genuinely feel like simply saying thank you is not enough because you were such a big part of making our day amazing so I hope you can feel through email just how appreciative we are!!! I am sad it is all over for us but we wish you the best for the rest of your wedding season!'
