Wedding Team





Gaynor Russell Senior Wedding Co-ordinator and Company Director ([email protected])

Gaynor has been overseeing Balbirnie’s wedding planning department for over ten years, 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 young daughters, Isobel and Ruby (wedding planners in training!).

Leah Kinnes Wedding Administration Assistant ([email protected])

The ‘baby’ of the department, Leah has been working at Balbirnie since summer 2014 after finishing school. Leah helps the other girls in so many ways – they don’t know where they would be without her! Leah makes all of the stationery for the weddings, the wedding packs, confirmation packs, carries out general admin and just keeps everyone smiling! The four of us all work very closely together, in the same office, so please don’t be alarmed if you email one person only to get an answer from another! It’s a busy wee office and we are not always at our desks but we will always get back to you just as soon as we possibly can!
