From our initial visit to Balbirnie all of the the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and special! Although there are many weddings every month you are made to feel like your wedding is the only wedding that year. Attention to detail is incredible and Christine’s enthusiasm and passion for weddings made wedding planning easy and stress free, nothing was ever too much for her and she went above and beyond to make our day perfect. On the day Erdal made sure everything was in place and his attention to detail ensured our day went without a glitch (or at least we are unaware of any) again nothing was every too much, he was always on hand and his hard work along with Christine’s hardwork in the months before gave us the truely perfect wedding day! Kerries personal and caring manner shone through and just made us feel so special. We stayed for 2 nights with family and friends and enjoyed a meal the evening before the wedding and all our guests have commented on how friendly, welcoming and helpful all staff at Balbirnie are and of course how stunning the venue and grounds are! The perfect wedding venue x

We can’t thank all the staff at Balbirnie enough for making our wedding day so perfect! A special thanks to Christine, Kerrie and Emma who were just fantastic! Our day ran so smoothly!
All our guests commented on how fantastic and attentive the staff were and how beautiful the venue and it’s surrounding were!
The venue is just spectacular and the staff seem to go above and beyond their roles to make sure everyone is happy!

Thanks so much!

We chose Balbirnie House Hotel after looking at various venues in and around Dundee and Fife. We felt that from our initial visit they were the one as we were made to feel at home and they had everything that we required. The team at Balbirnie are incredible! hey were very thorough and their attention to detail during the whole process made planning our big day incredibly easy. Leah dealt with our coordination up until the day and we were extremely impressed with all her hard work and eagerness. The food was amazing – we had a menu tasting a couple of months before to try it out and had no complaints – apart from having to actually choose what to select for our menus as everything was fantastic! Kerrie (who I have to say went above and beyond the call of duty and thought she was absolutely amazing) handled everything on the day and every little blip that occurred during the day was handled immediately and without any hassle to the point that I didn’t even realise that these things had happened until afterwards. The whole day ran perfectly and our expectations were exceeded. I would highly recommend Balbirnie as a wedding venue – they know exactly that they are doing and have everything down to a fine art.

We got married at Balbirnie House Hotel on Valentines weekend this year and it was just magical from start to finish. I knew from the minute that we visited that this was the place that me and my husband would get married. The venue is just stunning, from the public areas, the Orangery where we held our ceremony, to the large ballroom which gave us plenty of space to dine and party all night. Plus, the bedrooms are also fabulous, especially the pearl and wedding suite which are both massive and beautifully decorated. The whole process leading up to the event was pain free and our wedding planner was just so helpful. She organised everything making sure everything was set up exactly as we wanted, resulting in us having a perfect wedding day, never to be forgotten. The food also tasted amazing and the kitchen staff were so flexible in meeting everybodies different dietary requirements, seemlessly delivering it to the tables. All in all, the day was just perfect, from the venue and staff, to the food and twinkly lights that cover the ballroom walls and floors. All our guests are still talking about how fabulous and well organised the day was, many commenting that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to! A massive thanks also going to our Toast Master who looked after us from start to finish. The only negative was it rained, however Balbirnie is so versatile in that there is plenty of beautiful rooms within the house which resulted in us still getting stunning wedding photos. However, the house also has beautiful gardens too for when the sun choses to shine! Overall, Balbirnie truely is a special place and I would highly recommend to all prospective brides and grooms. They made my wedding dreams come true and I thank them for that, my only wish is i could do it all over again, it was that good! Can’t wait to book in for our first anniversary.

We got married at Balbirnie House Hotel in February 2017. The staff were fantastic and ensured that everything ran smoothly. The drive up to the hotel and front of the building was stunning. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and inside the hotel the rooms were all clean and of a high standard. The main areas of the hotel were stunning, especially the Ballroom with its lit up dance floor, candelabras and fairy lights. The Orangery was a fantastic setting for our ceremony. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. There were fantastic opportunities for photos both inside and out making it the ideal venue for weddings at any time of year. Thanks to the staff at Balbirnie we had an amazing day that we will never forget. We would highly recommend this venue to others.

We recently got married at Balbirnie. What. A. Day! It was absolutely unbelievable, hands down the day of our lives.
The staff at Balbirnie are amazing, nothing was too much trouble, and they were on hand throughout the night to make sure everything was perfect for us.
We had an Indian wedding with over 200 guests and Christine and her team helped us to decorate everything, set up the stage, and served delicious Indian food. It was incredible.
There was a real buzz amongst out guests and Balbirnie is the perfect combination of a stunning beautiful hotel, with a relaxed and really fun atmosphere. The party came to an end at about 4.30am and both we and our guests just wish it could have continued longer!
Would recommend to anyone and we will definitely be back!

We had our wedding reception at Balbirnie House in October 2015 and the day was amazing from start to finish. We chose the venue as it was so classy with the wow factor while holding its historic charm and vintage glamour. All of the staff we dealt with were outstanding and they helped to give us the most amazing wedding day. With the help of our deducted wedding planner, our day was planned meticulously and this meant we could relax and enjoy time with our guests safe in the knowledge that everything was taken care of. All our guests had a wonderful day and many commented on how impressed they were with the food, service and venue itself. The ballroom is a magnificent setting for a party and the dancefloor was packed all night. We loved every minute of our wedding celebrations at Balbirnie and can highly recommend it to prospective brides and grooms. Thanks again to everyone at Balnirnie x

Sidney Macdonald April 20, 2016 Wedding DateJanuary 16, 2016

We got married on 16th January 2016 at Balbirnie House, both the ceremony and reception were held there and I stayed at the hotel the night before. In the lead-up to the wedding, our planner was so patient with us in helping us organise all the smallest details right up to the big details. They even helped me keep some surprises quiet from the groom! The day itself was perfect, we simply couldn’t have asked for more. Every single member of staff was so helpful and made every single guest feel so welcome. We had many comments about how wonderful our day was and about the beautiful venue we had chosen. Our MC on the day could not have been more helpful, she truly helped make the day for us and nothing was too much trouble. They were all so enthusiastic about our plans and on the day itself, it really made us feel like we were the only wedding they had planned which is no easy feat! I would not hesitate to recommend Balbirnie House and their staff to anybody looking for the perfect wedding venue. Every detail I had given them was implemented perfectly. In fact, the only complaint I have is that I want to do it all again at half speed to really take in everything throughout the day – it’s true what they say, the day does fly by in an instant!

Wow, this venues reputation speaks volumes and they did not fail to impress. Wonderful staff, hugely organised and attention to detail is second to none.

We chose Balbirnie for our wedding venue because we felt it was the best venue in Fife. The hotel itself is stunning with fantastic backdrops for photos whether you are outside in the grounds or inside in one of the many rooms. The staff are exceptional and nothing is a hassle. One particular highlight is the dance floor which is lit up at night and creates a magical setting for the first dance. We couldn’t have asked for a better day.
