Tanisha @ the cow shed in Crail

Tanisha and her fiancé and her are both teachers so they flew up from England in the last school holidays to do wedding “stuff” including meeting us for her trial.

At her trial we chatted about how she most definitely didn’t want the big eyebrows and heavy makeup that lots of her teenage pupils enjoyed! I was allowed to do a golden/brown light smokey eye makeup but next to nothing on her lips as she wasn’t used to it.

Her wedding dress was very glamorous so her hair style was to reflect that, she had some extra pieces added to give her hair fullness.  On the wedding day the bridesmaids were all to wear their hair down and curled with gypsophila added so it was only right that the bride had flowers too. Monica set to work by taking some flowers from one of the bouquets to add to Tanisha’s finished style. (Nothing like a bit of free-styling, but don’t tell the florists)!

They'd hired Treesscape in Elie to stay in for the long weekend and were getting married at The Cow Shed in Crail. At the place we had plenty space and natural light to do all 7 of them, Tanisha’s mum had a face massage too. Despite the large group we had a fairly relaxed morning with chats from how Tanisha met her husband-to-be and laughs about her Tourette’s fan and her mums friend looking the height of glam outside with her rollers in!

The sun made an appearance after a horrible weekends weather so that added to the joy. “it’s actually sunny in Scotland”!

The photos below are by the bridesmaids & Monica, we’ll be posting the real deal by Lianne Mackay photography on our Instagram page when we can. Enjoy xx

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

Captured! Crazy wedding morning shot

Wedding then cream cakes

We’ve been doing a lot of weddings this season in Fife, must be because there are so many beautiful venues. Saturday was Justines turn to get hitched and she was doing it to her 6ft7 ex rugby playing boyfriend on the Cambo Estate.

After we finished giving everyone the Madeup treatment our thoughts headed to where we should go for lunch. If I’m being honest we were probably thinking about it whilst doing the wedding party as both of us have healthy appetites  <greedy> 

We found a new sushi bar in St Andrews and were lucky enough to find a bench right outside so parked ourselves there and took in the sunshine. Our next stop was an old favourite Fisher & Donaldson, it’s an amazing bakery!

(Monica even had a job there as a teenager in their branch in Cupar).

If you’re reading this Justine we can blame you for igniting our desire for cake after you showed us pictures of your wedding cake!

And if anyone has tips on good restaurants around that area please let us know for future use!

Married at Myres

We have been lucky enough to work in some really beautiful venues and Myres castle is up there as 1 of our favourites. Just outside a small village in Fife called Auchtermutchy (only Scottish folk can pronounce that properly)! The castle feels warm, comfortable and nothing like a wedding conveyor belt.

We like getting everyone ready in the bathroom of the bridal suite - yes it’s that big!

Imogen had 5 bridesmaids plus herself and the mums to get ready so we had to start early and work to a strict timetable, this ran over a bit which would make most brides stress but Imogen was cool & calm (I kidded on I was).

There aren’t many pictures (see above regarding timings)! But I hope you get an idea about our morning.

Her custom made jacket for over her dress was fab we thought.
