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
wedding makeup for all
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’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
A definite cause for celebration as it’s taken us a long time to get here. We’ve wasted time with not 1 but 2 companies to help us when all along the person that has the skills was right there in front of us!
We’ve known Ema a long time and despite vaguely knowing she was studying something at uni to do with websites we didn’t use our brains to pick hers!
As she knows us she knows our sense of humour and occasional scatty personas. Ema immersed herself in some of the blogs from photographers we’d worked with, so much so she said she felt like she was at some of the weddings!
Here we are today high on caffeine and spicy halloumi fries!
Big thanks and love to you for doing such a great job and putting up with us xx
