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
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.

We met Kirsty when we did her friend Sams wedding in the summer. She then booked us up for her day in September which was taking place at The Caves. (Great venue choice now it feels all wintery).
Leo was not who we expected to meet as we arrived - but as her mum explained she’d organised an Oscar themed hen and had kept him ever since! Well it would be difficult to let him go... Her brother nearly binned him after arriving home from the pub one night and finding him!
I hope you enjoy these shots of our fun morning filled with sweets.
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!

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

This was our brief from one of our bridesmaids, I’ve been doing makeup for a long time but never had this request before. Safe to say we had a good laugh with her!
We met our American bride Jenny on Wednesday for her trial then on her wedding day at Dalhousie Castle with her 5 bridesmaids. Lisa (who was in the process of been made up as banging hot) had us in stitches with her story of how to escape from a bad date (her story has been published) and how she got Jenny onto online dating “Way before it was fashionable, and that’s who she’s marrying”
Here are some shots from the morning of Jenny and some of her hot bridesmaids!
I used YSL foundations and on the bridesmaids a new lipstick in my kit from Clarins Rosy Nude.
