Award winners

For anyone familiar with Balbirnie, their global award win will come as no surprise.

The hotel’s fab events team and luxe atmosphere has earned them a reputation for quality throughout Scotland; a reputation that’s seen them win ‘Scotland’s National Wedding Hotel of the Year’ at the Scottish Hotel Awards 12 times over the past 14 years.

World’s best

Now, Balbirnie House has achieved global recognition and is officially the number one destination wedding venue in the world!

Managing director Nicholas Russell said: “The global award has immediately and without doubt, struck such an emotive and poignant, resonant chord, a totally romantic and brand new dimension to our accumulated history. The Haute Grandeur global award is dedicated to the boys, girls, men and women who made it happen.”

He credits their team for much of their success, in this award and in general.

“Ultimately, we are always a people business,” he explains. “So, it’s fair to say that all achievement in defining the new global award is a result of decades of work from many people. That also extends further to our associate recommended suppliers of wedding services, suppliers for all hotel goods, and of course, to our clients over all the years.”

So what does the award win mean for the future of Balbirnie House?

“Moving ahead, nothing changes,” says Nicholas. “We’ll keep doing our absolute best for every single client, and for each other within Balbirnie.”
