Elsick House First Visit

The Ritz Trio made their first visit to Elsick House this week for a post wedding party. Elsick House is  home to the Duke of Fife.

Elsick House is an exclusive use venue, situated a few miles south of Aberdeen and situated within 1500 acres. The picture was taken on the small bridge just in front of the main entrance to Elsick House. The Ritz Trio performed in a marquee situated close to the main building. Other entertainment on the day included a bucking broncho, which provided a few laughs!

Prior to performing the chaps enjoyed a walk through the walled cottage gardens – great inspiration!

Wedding Entertainment Post COVID

At last wedding entertainment post COVID can start to take place in Scotland, albeit it with restrictions. Whilst we are able to all enjoy a little more normality, COVID is still with us and is likely to be part of our lives for some time to come!

With hopefully the worst of COVID pandemic behind us, the Ritz Trio are delighted to be back out playing again! Over the last few weeks the Ritz Trio have been asked to play music for wedding ceremonies and drinks receptions although with guest numbers limited. The group have also seen an increase in bookings to play background music for evening receptions, most recently at Balbirnie House in Fife. It was a fabulous day with a very relaxed atmosphere. Just prior to the wedding breakfast the guests gathered on the lawn to watch the newly weds have their first dance – “Moondance”.

A number of couples have opted for a more laid back cocktail bar feel to the evening, whilst this is not new to the Ritz Trio it is good to see more people considering this approach to the evening which allows friends and family the opportunity to talk and catch up and be heard! We do however look forward to restrictions being fully lifted in the future to allow for dancing. see the latest guidance below for wedding receptions in Scotland.

With over a decade of experience the Ritz Trio have established themselves as one of the best wedding bands in Scotland specialising in performing background music for drinks receptions and wedding ceremonies in Scotland. Find out more about the Ritz Trio HERE
