Balbirnie House is a 1777 Georgian mansion, Grade A Listed of national and international importance. Over the years Balbirnie has been the recipient of a quite extraordinary collection of industry awards, especially for weddings. In these contexts, 2019 was an extraordinary year. Balbirnie once again received overall ‘Scottish Wedding Hotel of the Year’ - Rather incredibly, that is now 13 times in the last 15 years that Balbirnie has received Scotland’s top wedding award, in recognition of our dedication to our weddings. Furthermore, in October 2019 at the global Haute Grandeur hotel awards ceremony which took place in Malaysia, we became the first ever recipients of ‘2019 Best Destination Wedding Hotel – Global winner’, quite an incredible feat for Balbirnie House!

Gaynor Russell Company Director ([email protected]) Gaynor has been overseeing Balbirnie’s wedding planning department for almost 2 decades, and is also a director of our company. Gaynor has been the recipient of our country’s national award – Scotland’s Hotelier of the Year, (indeed the youngest ever recipient of that unique accolade!), and speaks from a wealth of experience at Balbirnie, having started here back in the late 1990’s. Gaynor is herself a previous Balbirnie Bride - married to Nicholas, our Managing Director, and together they have two daughters, Isobel and Ruby (wedding planners in training!) Gaynor also oversees all of Balbirnie’s evolving interior design work, a continual process of reinvestment back into the property. Sarah Rees Deputy General Manager ([email protected]) Sarah has been working at Balbirnie since 2012, having also started on reception. Sarah looks after all of our special events, private dining, meetings and corporate functions, as well as some of our weddings, so she is a very busy girl and is now a future Balbirnie Bride! Christine Lowe Senior Wedding Co-ordinator ([email protected]) Christine joined the Balbirnie Family in early 2015, having previously worked in Bridal Fashion and takes interest in anything creative that crosses her path. She is extremely well-versed in all aspects of wedding planning and recently married Jay here at Balbirnie, November 2019. Leah Kinnes Wedding Co-ordinator ([email protected]) Leah has been working at Balbirnie since summer 2014.
