Shoot with Stewart Christie & Co - We love doing hair and makeup for a shoot, but it’s even better when we get to collaborate with Vixy Pixy Rae, creative director at Stewart Christie and photographer Laura Meek.Read More
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.
The bathroom turned into a salon!
Our bride before!

Her custom made jacket for over her dress was fab we thought.
Imogen looked stunning
The fastest way to improve your skin before you put on makeup for a special occasion is to pop on a sheet mask first. For all skin types you can choose to deep cleanse, exfoliate or deeply hydrate these masks are like putting on an intensive serum.
Not to be seen by a new partner or in fact your children who in my case never fail to tell me how scary and/or mental I look! A ten minute mask whilst your faffing around getting organised or preferably lying down with a blanket and surrounded by pillows will do your skin the world of good.
What a difference I notice when a bride has taken heed of our advice email and put one to good use! Easily bought for £1 up to silly money from the usual Superdrug, Boots skincare brands. The next thing I’m keen to try is the Optrex Warming Eye Mask, anyone else used it?
Thanks for being a good sport and letting me take your before shot like this Eilidh!
