Balbirnie House Drinks Reception

Following on from the ceremony the Trio are able to easily move location to play over drinks to get the party started! The sun always seems to shine at Balbirnie as most of the weddings the Trio have played at have taken place in the lovely sheltered garden.

The repertoire for weddings at Balbirnie includes something for everyone ranging from Swing and Rat Pack to some fun arrangements of a few more popular tunes such as “It Must Be Love, Love Love” “My Guy” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” to name a few.
