getting makeup done
Kerry was so chuffed that her wedding dress had pockets, I was just hoping she wasn’t planning on keeping her red lipstick there!
Monica and I drove up to the beautiful Perthshire countryside to Fingask castle, we tried and failed to take a video of the grounds and the trees with the unusual topiary.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!
The hairstyle Monica did on all the bridesmaids.

Her custom made jacket for over her dress was fab we thought.
Imogen looked stunning
When we met Goldilocks, I mean Eila, for her trial she told us the story about how she and her brothers went to Loretta school in Musselburgh and that was the venue her and her Australian fiancé had hired to be married in.
Eila had since become a teacher at a school in England, her teaching skills were apparent by her organised approach to everything, she had another wedding dress just incase and she made her hair flower crown that morning!
I hope you enjoy these pictures, we were pretty wowed by the beautiful building and are looking forward to seeing Ditta’s shots from First Light Photography.
Eila we hope you had a fantastic day and you show your excited school children these photos, you looked so beautiful xx
