Comment: Hi Simon I hope I have the right email for you. Firstly, happy New Year to you and your family. Brian and I wanted to say a huge big thank you for being a part of our special day. Bri is not a huge horse lover like myself but admitted that he preferred the horses and carriage to the carÖnow that is a compliment coming from him!!! The horses were so well trained and beautifully turned out as was the carriageÖ.not to mention the carriage driver :-P
I have been trying to forward you on some photos from our wedding, however, due to the size of some of them I've been having a few difficulties! I will definitely get some across to you as soon as possible. Thanks again so much and will be in touch soon with the photos. Lou & Brian

Comment: I had to write to thank you for Sunday. (18th March) Having your horse and carriage for our wedding made our day extra special. Your horses are stunning and the carriage is beautiful thank you so much for upgrading us. It was a pleasure to meet yourself and your daughter. You put me at ease straight away and the snapshots she took for us look amazing. I now know why you are so highly recommended and will be doing so now myself. Best Wishes Sharon Murphy (nee Cassels)

Comment: Really sorry it's been so long before we thanked you for making our wedding day so special. When Mick first suggested getting married at Gretna Green I must admit I was a little apprehensive as the only thing I knew about Gretna Green was that it was where young lovers ran away to get married I had this vision of a tin shack somewhere in the back of beyond. How wrong can a girl be. Thank you so very much everything about your service it is extremely professional Lots of love & more - Thanks x

Comment: Finally got back from a wonderful honeymoon in Mexico, so thought we would just add a little note to say thank you so much for making our day so magical. For a horse lover having the carriage and horses was just so special, they are an absolute credit to you they looked and behaved fantastically even in the snow. We cant thank you both enough for making the day so wonderful, thanks to Zoe who helped me in and out of the carriage on a snowy day, could have been very embarrasing. Best wishes xxx

Comment: Hi Simon! Happy New Year! Thank you SO VERY MUCH for making our magical wedding day even more magical on Friday 17 December! I had booked the carriage as a surprise from Martin and it certainly was! Hobo and Hamlet are truly beautiful horses, and the Victorian carriage with them is simpy stunning. We really experienced a fairytale wedding and the magic still continues and now we also have the beautiful photos! I will email you a photo separately as I am not too sure how to attach it from here. Your service is impeccable and the complimantary champage was gorgeous and went down a treat! In years to come we may well return to Gretna to celebrate our anniversary one day and would certainly contact you for the carriage! Thank you once again for helping to make our special day even more so! Love and best wishes from Brigitte and Martin Skinner

Comment: Martin & I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Simon & Zoe. Our wedding was on Friday 25th February and the sun was shining for us. Hobo & Hebe looked fantastic and they and the carriage were beautifully turned out. I lived my dream riding in this beautiful carriage to my wedding venue to meet my husband to be. After the ceremony, because we were the last wedding of the day we had a bonus 20 minutes drive around Gretna with Simon, Zoe, Hobo & Hebe. It was fantastic & even though Martin is not a 'Horsey' person he willingly had his photo taken next to Hebe and me next to Hobo. He also really enjoyed the drive around Gretna. Thank you so much Simon & Zoe for making that part of our wedding so special. Photos to follow.

You made our day very special and memerable and giving us a ride round for 10mins or so, gave us time to unwind before joining back up with our guests.

Comment: We have just come back from our wedding weekend in Gretna Green. The ceremony took place at Comlongon Castle, what a fantastic day! The horse drawn carriage that awaited us at the beginning of the driveway was a dream come true. They were top class horses driven by a top class gentleman. They had the white plumes on to show of my wedding carriage, dressed immaculate! We could not have asked for a better company to take me to the castle. Definately 5 stars and a must do if you are ever in the area. A day to remember and fantastic photos as proof xx regards suzanne and chris

We got married on 6th April at St John's Church in Dumfries and you took us from there to Mabie House. As you suggested, it was precious time that we spent together travelling to our venue just after the service - just us two and a bottle of champagne. You both provided an excellent service and were very professional and informative. Thank you so much. I would highly reccomend your service to anyone who is thinking of hiring a horse and carriage.

Comment: Sat 2nd July Hi, we would like to say a HUGE THANKYOU for making our special day magical. The service we received was fantastic, both friendly and professional. However, what really stood out was how accomodating you both were with the children. Letting the children have a ride in the carriage and ride 'shotgun' made the day so memorable for them and added to the whole atmosphere of the day! I would have no hesitation in reccomending Tartan Carriages.
Kind regards Janine and David Stewart

Well Simon what can I say Sunday was truly the most wonderful day of our lives. The Horses did an amazing job - it wasent till we drove the 5 mile journey the next day did we realise just how constantly uphill it was for them! I hope they had lots of nice apples and a well deserved rest afterwords! Obviousley we want to thank yourself for the expert driving and the young girl who helped me get in & out of the Carriage & sort my train out for me - she was fab! My brother in law says he has some fantastic pictures of the horses & Carriage - I will forward them to you (or up load them to the web site) as soon as we get back from Italy (off on friday morning - I havent seen a single wedding photo myself yet!) We honestly cant sing your praises enough to everyone! A million thanks to all of you who helping create such a magical day. All our love, Michelle & Andy Henry xx

Comment: I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your wonderful family, for making my grand daughters day. Hamlet was a dream and certainly didnt seem to mind a 2 year old sitting on his back. It was very good of you to take the time effort and patiance to take her out for the afternoon. All she talks about is when is she going riding again. Once again thank you. Regards Dave

We were collected from our hotel in a car then delivered to the waiting horse and carriage who took us the last few miles. All three people involved with Tartan Carriages were lovely, really reassuring and helpful, it seemed like they really loved their jobs :-) Thank you all for making the day extra special
