  • Our venue was at the Cairnwood Estates. The Pitcairn family lineage is from Scotland and so we felt the need to commemorate the occasion with a piper and drummer in grand kilt fashion. Charlie and Mark gave a spot on performance and were fabulous. They entered the reception in fine style playing our song requests and surprising our guests. We had a great time. Highly recommended.
