Wedding Hair and Makeup

Lauren’s wedding

When Lauren came for her trial the 3 of us bonded over our love of food! A previous client of ours that had recommended us to her runs The Edinburgh Catering Company. Lauren made us laugh when she told us the story of her and her fiancé going for the food tasting and how they ended up eating every single thing they were supposed to be sampling from!

They had chosen a venue which was new to us Colstoun House, it gave us a chance to revisit beautiful Haddington (and of course go for lunch after)! The house was on huge beautiful grounds, you can see the views we had from the library we worked in. 

There were some tears, funny stories from her bridesmaids about California with menus and tags being designed at the same time.  

I hope you enjoy these snap shots of Lauren’s day.

Done a beach wedding in Scotland- now open for bookings in the Caribbean

Our diary is open and twitching waiting for destination wedding bookings. In the meantime we do love our Scottish beach weddings, we’ve done one in Mull, a couple on the the west coast of Scotland and this weekends was on the east coast at Harvest Moon near Dunbar. 

We’ve holidayed at the resort with some other mums and all our kids in the fantastic treehouses, my youngest has it in his “top 5 holidays” It felt good to go back and grab that wheelbarrow in the car park, but this time it was to fill it with our kits not our overnight bags.

Our bride Poppy had the laid back optimistic personality you need to be married outside in Scotland (I was that woman 11 years ago)! We arrived at the cottage to do everyone’s hair and mup which was a step up from the last wedding we did there in one of the safari tents (terrible lighting for makeup application).

As is the norm on a wedding morning there’s always a lot going on in the room which adds to the atmosphere although I’m sure Poppy’s dog didn’t enjoy me stepping on him several times! We were glad everyone made the decision to have hairups and a rusty red lipstick to contrast the pale grey dresses. 

Thanks for our raspberry vodka and it was great to meet you Poppy xx

Poppy, her hair’s been in heated rollers now it’s time for mup before the hair goes up.

The Madeup Team's New Website

A definite cause for celebration as it’s taken us a long time to get here. We’ve wasted time with not 1 but 2 companies to help us when all along the person that has the skills was right there in front of us!

We’ve known Ema a long time and despite vaguely knowing she was studying something at uni to do with websites we didn’t use our brains to pick hers! 

As she knows us she knows our sense of humour and occasional scatty personas. Ema immersed herself in some of the blogs from photographers we’d worked with, so much so she said she felt like she was at some of the weddings!

Here we are today high on caffeine and spicy halloumi fries! 

Big thanks and love to you for doing such a great job and putting up with us xx
