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

My dress has pockets!

My dress has pockets!

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.

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.

Getting married at school

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

The room we had to set up our kits in was a little different from our usual!
