Mozolowski & Murray breathes new life into luxury wedding venue

Opened in May 2015, the Marshall family lovingly renovated Carlowrie Castle to cleverly blend contemporary modern luxury hospitality, with a traditional Scottish setting, creating what many industry publications describe as ‘a true hidden gem’ just minutes from the City of Edinburgh. With the option to host a range of weddings and events such as charity fundraisers, dinners and celebrations, this has been a wise investment, both in terms of business growth and the overall value of the property.

It was essential that the restoration was given to leading glass and timber structure specialists, who would be able to strike the right balance between intelligent design, quality materials, workmanship and installation, as well as demonstrate a clear understanding and insight into the architectural context of the build. The Mozolowski & Murray team grasped this immediately and the results are truly stunning.

Mozolowski & Murray Director, Virginia Murray said:

“This was a particularly rewarding project with truly impressive results. We worked seamlessly with our client’s architect and base contractors, with our specialised team producing the highest standards of workmanship to ensure the best possible outcome for Andrew, his clients and his business.

“It is always a delight to see our work being enjoyed post completion, but it is fantastic to know that Andrew’s investment has paid off and his business is thriving.”

How long have you been with Mozolowski & Murray (M&M) and what is your role within the company?

I have been with Mozolowski and Murray for just over a year and a half and my role within the company is working in stores. This involves placing orders for products that are required for each job, such as glass and guttering etc. and for equipment that the site guys need to do their jobs. I also unload deliveries using the forklift and book deliveries into our system. I ensure the factory and our yard is always clean and tidy and make sure everything is in the correct place.

If you could swap your job with anyone else’s within M&M, whose job would you want and why?

I think if I was to swap my job with someone else at Mozolowski and Murray, it would have to be Nikky Miller, because since I started working with the company, I have always looked up to Nikky, as she is one of the most hardworking employees at Mozolowski & Murray and has so much passion for her role and for the company. Nikky manages our HR, Accounts and IT operations.

Pick 3 words to describe Mozolowski & Murray?

Organised, high quality and unique.

What has been your favourite project, day or moment while working for M&M and why?

I think my favourite project was when I did my SVQ in warehousing because I learned a great deal from it and it has taught me the value of being more organised which positively impacts on my working day.

Do you have an office nickname? If so, what is it and what’s the story behind it.

I don’t really have a nickname. Some of the site guys call me ‘big R’ but I’m not sure why and probably best not to ask!

Do you recall any embarrassing moments at work? Tell us about one

My most embarrassing moment at work has to be when I got the forklift stuck in the mud at the back of our yard and had to ask one of the builders to pull it out with a digger.

If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day and why?

If I could be anyone for a day, it would have to be an ice hockey goalie called Marc Andre Fleury as he is an amazing goaltender and I would love to know how it feels to play at the highest level of ice hockey in the world.

If you could interview one person (dead or alive) who would it be and why?

If I could interview anyone it would have to be an ice hockey player called Sidney Crosby as he is one of the greatest ice hockey players in Canada and I have always pushed myself to be as good a player as he is.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Outside of work I enjoy going to watch an ice hockey team called the Fife Flyers, who play at Kirkcaldy ice rink. I also like cleaning my car and socialising with friends now and again.

Name one thing about you that would surprise people.

I think the one thing that surprises people the most about me is how much I like spending time with my family rather than going out with my friends. Given I am so young, I think they expect it to be the other way around.
