Meet Lynika Muller, Muckrach’s lovely Weddings & Events Manager. At 26, Lynika brings a wealth of wedding, event and hospitality knowledge to the hotel.
Originally from Durban in South Africa, Lynika came to Scotland to follow Love! “Rayner (Head Chef and Hotel Manager of Muckrach) and I had been dating since I was 14 (high school sweethearts), he came over to Scotland to get experience in his chef-ing career and I came over a year later to take him back home but it back fired as I fell in love with Scotland’s charm”.
“I have always wanted to become a wedding planner since watching the movie “The Wedding Planner” and I knew that I wanted to work with brides and make their dreams into their happiest day and thought it was best to start at the bottom and work my way up to experience all sides of the business so I understood it better.”
Since October 2009 Lynika has been in Scotland and started in a temporary position at the Glenmoriston Town House Hotel as a General Assistant where she loved seeing the brides on their wedding day.
Lynika moved to the Best Western Inverness Palace Hotel as a full time Receptionist in November 2009, growing within this role, Lynika had become Reception Manager within 2 years and 2 years later was promoted to the Events & Groups Sales Manager.
New challenges arose in 2015, as Rayner’s role moved to Muckrach and they had to move their family home. Lynika became the Guest services Manager at the Macdonald Aviemore Resort. By August 2015, we had recognised the skills that Lynika had to offer and she started at Muckrach.
“I love the fact that we are a small boutique hotel so we are able too look after guests in a different way and build a relationship with returning guests so it feels like their escape to the country but also somewhere they feel welcome and at home.”
“I absolutely love to make other people especially other couples happy and to know that I was part of their planning and I helped them have their magical day is the best feeling in the world. I can honestly say I LOVE my job!!!”
“I want people to see Muckrach for the gem it is. I want couples to realise that their happy day is here with us in a relaxing atmosphere where not only them but their guests too can escape and make a break of their trip here to us. I want the word of Muckrach to spread that we give brides what they can’t get anywhere else and that is the personal touch and that we realise every couple is different so we work with them to make their special day even more magical and that we are the best venue to celebrate any occasion in!”
