We have done quite a lot of Asian weddings over the years which we love- all those great colours to work with. This year so far we’ve done 2 Chinese weddings, the tea ceremony with the parents sound moving and it’s about showing respect to both sets of parents.Read More
hair and makeup
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
Tanisha's finished hair style, isn’t it beautiful?
Her mum asked for full glam and said she felt gorgeous!
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!

She looked beautiful
Only got 1 bridesmaids photo, we both had hair envy!
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
