News from Cambo


A little about us from The Wedding Collective


Cambo Estate, based in St Andrews, is the wedding venue that just won’t stop. Actually, that should be wedding venues, as it has something to please everyone, from detailed and divine Victorian rooms to a field perfect for a festival wedding. Imagine a wedding venue version of the Room of Requirement: whatever you want for your wedding, Cambo likely has. And when we say it has something for everyone, we don’t mean that they’ve tried to cram lots of ill-fitting things under one overarching roof – we wouldn’t do that to you guys. What we really mean is it’s an incredible estate with stunning amenities, and a dedicated team who will go through hell and high water to make your wedding exactly as you dreamed it. Plus, it’s based on the idyllic Fife coastline, with views for days, which means there’s a vibrant, magical energy running through the place that you have to feel to believe…

Ruth and Neil’s Wedding Day

Junebug Weddings

This Autumnal Cambo Estate Wedding Has the Most Epic Ceremony Exit
May 13, 2018 juliette

Ruth and Neil’s Cambo Estate wedding was nothing short of incredible and truly embraced laid-back elegance while showcasing the unparalleled beauty of autumn in Scotland. The couple held their ceremony inside the estate and opted for a woodland wonderland-inspired reception with a clear marquee tent nestled in the woods, which created a beautiful juxtaposition between events. Myrtle & Bracken brought Ruth’s love for florals to life with autumn-inspired arrangements and foliage that softened the look but didn’t overwhelm either space. As for their ceremony, we now have a new favourite exit idea: confetti cannons! Most people save their grand exit moment for the reception, but Ruth and Neil surprised everyone by having confetti shot off right after they exchange their vows. It was a moment we’re sure their guests will never forget and one we can’t wait to see over and over thanks to Zoë Alexandra Photography who captured every moment brilliantly!

Enchanted Woodland Wedding Venues

Enchanted Woodland Wedding Venues


There is nothing wrong with hosting your wedding in a beautiful town or manor house. Don’t get us wrong, at The Wedding Secret we are a big fan of majestic stairways and ornate ceilings.

However, there is something truly magical about a tree-lined canopy and a wedding reception that literally takes place beneath the stars.

Woodland Wedding

Becoming ever more popular, woodland weddings are not only sought after but they are also guaranteed to be magical and unique. There are plenty of venues now able to provide on-site accommodation, food and a blessing or licensed ceremony. Why not delve into the woods for a truly natural wedding?

When it comes to searching for your ideal forest wedding venue in the UK, it is important to choose somewhere that is not only beautiful but that reflects you as a couple.

It is also worth considering the wedding guests that you are inviting. Of course you will want your elderly relations there, however, they may struggle if your venue requires a certain amount of leaping through the undergrowth and perching on a reception chair fashioned from a tree stump or hay bale.

Woodland wedding

Luckily, there are a vast selection of woodland venues to choose from, each with their own unique benefits. So, whether you want to completely immerse yourself in nature or you would prefer something a little less remote, you are bound to find the perfect thing to reflect your relationship.

No matter what your prerequisites are for your woodland wedding, the venues below will have something to suit everyone. They may even surprise you with some of the incredible and creative aspects that are on offer for forest weddings.

Fife for foodies

Amy Stewart

Scotland is no stranger to good food. Edinburgh has its elegant, fine-dining establishments, Glasgow has its hip, up-and-coming eateries. But if you look a bit closer, you’ll uncover culinary hotspots hiding in Scotland’s many pockets and corners.

Last week, I had the unique chance to discover one of them.

The East Neuk (“Neuk” being the Scots word for “nook”) is a sunny corner around an hour from Edinburgh, running around the east peninsula of Fife. Despite having grown up in Scotland’s capital, I’ve never ventured to this part of the country – so when the opportunity came for a taster with Kingsbarns Distillery, I was well and truly tempted.

For my fellow foodies, here’s how to spend a delicious weekend in the scenic East Neuk of Fife.

Flower Design: A Week at Cambo

Flower Design: A Week at the Cambo Estate in Scotland

Christin Geall May 29, 2017

Cultivated, I approached one of my favorite gardens in Scotland with a question: would they have me for a week in late fall—not to work in the garden per se, but rather with it—to create art with plants at the Cambo Estate?

My plan: I would bring in no flowers or vases and design solely with what was in bloom during the last week of October in the estate’s walled gardens and woodlands.

Here’s what I found:

Photography by Christin Geall except where noted.

Cambo Walled Garden in October

Above: The walled garden benefits from a gentle slope, the moderating effect of the North Sea, and the added protection of enclosure.

I knew Cambo from a previous summer visit to Fife and had been impressed by the gardens: 70 acres of woodlands home to an extensive snowdrop collection (complete with a burn babbling out to the North Sea), a meadow planting, and a 2.5-acre Victorian walled garden planted in a modern naturalistic style.

Cambo Estates Wedding : A classical Scottish love with a creative touch.

I'm thrilled to share this styled shoot I put together with a team of amazing local vendors and Cambo Estate , a stunning 13th century luxury country estate right on the scenic North Sea coast of Scotland, UK. My idea was to have a very Scottish look but keep the modern, colorful, artistic feel that I strive for in my work. Mostly though, to show off the AMAZING beauty of the estate and the oozing talent of the vendors involved which they made very easy!

Christin Geall

Christin Geall is not the typical flower designer. She was a young woman who was protected by a famous herbalist and cultivated her first garden on a remote island. Then she left the floriculture for another passion: non-fiction literature. Over the years she returned to the field to grow flowers and has a studio in the city of Victoria, British Columbia. Cultivated by Christin is the blog where she tells of his latest adventures.

Christin Geall sabe que es un lujo arrancar de su jardín las flores que le apetece.

Christin Geall knows that is a luxury to take whatever she needs from her garden. Nervertheless, she misses living in a big city with a big flower market. (Photograph Christin Geall)

The Luxonomist: You are a master of color and design. Did this come to you instinctively or through persistence?
Christin Geall: Thank you! A few years ago I signed up for a colour theory course, and for three months blended colours and painted tiny pieces of paper. It was incredibly challenging, like yoga for the senses, stretching me to actually ‘see’. I tend to be drawn to analogous schemes in my floral work and aim for harmony, not disruption. But when I look at pictures of interiors, playful wallpapers, and dramatic historic spaces, I’m drawn to bravado. Today I met with a bride who wants to hang fake peacocks in trees. To paraphrase Ariella Chezar, “take the work you don’t think you’ll like. It will push you creatively.” As for my designs, I do believe in persistence, in practice. I have flowers available in my garden, so I can run out and snip the right thing, colour or shape as I work. That’s certainly a luxury. I try to create something beautiful every day—be it a sentence, a photograph, or an arrangement.

TL: You worked with herbalist Heidi Schmidt in Massachusetts when you were young. What was so special about your work there?
CG: Our relationship was (and is) still special to me. Heidi took me under her wing when I was nineteen and mentored me in the long tradition women’s healing. Plus Martha’s Vineyard—an island off the coast of Massachusetts—is simply idyllic. Every summer throughout college, I’d garden all day, do the flowers, make potions, cook with herbs, and skinny dip at night.

TL: What led you to a remote island in British Columbia at age 24 to develop your first garden?
CG: Big question! Knowing one’s desire, the perennial yank of heart. I did not possess this skill when I was younger, when I was still navigating life on instinct. Which is precisely how, at age twenty-four, with more air miles than sense, I found myself looking at real estate on a tiny island with a winter population of sixty. I believed that my mother would have approved of me using her money for a back-to-the-land experience. The newspaper ad described the place as ‘Canada’s Caribbean’. The island was rustic, if not romantic; it had no electricity or running water. I wanted a big bright sky like Martha´s Vineyard, a vast beach, and here it was—a broad swath of south-facing white sand, a bay of silver, beige and blue. Ohh, I thought. Beauty can justify whatever you’re going to do next. Justification was required: In the five years since my mom had died, I’d spent most of my inheritance travelling. I had to stop myself from spending it all by spending it all—on land.

TL: Name three principles learned from Zita Elze?
CG: At Zita Elze in London, I learned: 1. Live in a major city if you want to work with architecture and art in a serious way; 2. No detail is too small; 3. Connect the dots—art does not exist without context and floral design is shaped by political, economic and environmental forces.

Pear branches, amaranthus, dahlias and more in the delicate compote. (Photograph Christin Geall)

TL: And from Erin Benzakein (Floret)?
CG: Erin is a wonderful teacher and her passion for growing inspiring. The three days I spent at Floret changed me. I learned firstly to honour the gifts I had and shape my business towards those talents; how important marketing is and how to use social media to create community and reach customers; and the importance of not underselling myself or the flowers I grow.

TL: You are a flower farmer and a florist. Which is the best and the worst of both professions?
CG: The best part of flower farming is watching a flower you have sown and tended finally bloom. Double that joy if it’s a plant new to you. I will never tire of that magic: it’s soulful work. The trickiest part of flower farming has been pricing my product, ensuring I’m making a fair rate per stem. As a florist, best part is being called upon to convey emotion with plants. The worst part is being an actual florist. I don’t think people have much respect for the profession, consider it trite, feminine, or somehow lacking intelligence and therefore diminish the work. I try to use the term ‘floral design’ over floristry as a result. These views are changing, but it’s slow going.

Christin sigue el consejo de Ariella Chezar_

Christin follows Ariella Chezar’s advice “take the work you don’t think you’ll like. It will push you creatively.” (Photograph Christin Geall)

TL: How was your experience being a ‘florist in residence’ in Scotland? Did you just knock the door?
CG: I wrote a great proposal letter. Long have writers and artists been supported by creative residencies to develop new work. Cambo State hosts visiting gardeners, so I thought floral design might fit, straddle that space between interiors and exteriors, bridge the domestic to the wild. I made something new every day, explored and identified plants, stretched myself creatively to design historically, helped in the garden a bit, and scouted locations around the estate daily. The work I do requires a sophisticated gardener, a designer, and a photographer. (I don’t count the writer but I should, I suppose). Having those professions perform at optimum levels for five days straight was harder than I thought.

Christin ultimando los detalles de una de sus creaciones

Christin Geall

TL: Do you know any other place in the world where you can be a ‘florist in residence’?
CG: Yes, the Villa Lena in Tuscany.

TL: Which garden or park you would you like to visit?
CG: This is entirely ecologically irresponsible but I’d like to do floral/botanical tours of Japan, Morocco, and South Africa, looking at both wild and cultivated places. (In fact, I’d love to lead/plan/organize such trips. So send me an email if you’re inclined!).

Close to Christmas, poinsettias inspired this flower design. (Photograph Christin Geall)

TL: If you could visit one garden in history, what would it be?
CG: I’d love to have been at The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew during the great age of botanical exploration in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Not many women were of course, but it must have been a tremendously exciting time.

Christin stook a three month course in a credited art school to master color theory. She describe this experience as yoga to the senses. (Photograph Christin Geall)

TL: Which garden and flower books you recommend?
CG: I love (and teach) narrative nonfiction so with that in mind: Beverley Nichols, an amusing English writer who wrote gardening books in the 1940s; Molly Peacock’s The Paper Garden, an exceptional book about an 18th century woman in her 70s discovering the art of botanical collage; Still Life With Oysters and Lemon by Mark Doty which isn’t about flowers but is about seeing. If I had to pick one great how-to flower book it would be Sarah Raven’s The Cutting Garden. I met her recently at Perch Hill and she is still discovering new flowers for use in design.

Resume su experiencia como un yoga para los sentidos.

Floral design inspirted in Thanksgiving festivity. (Photograph Christin Geall)

TL: What would be your advice to a florist-to-be?
CG: Do the math. Can you afford to be an artist? If you can, then specialize, find a niche, aim high with your education, and really go for it. Don’t settle. Take classes on business. If you can’t afford to be a florist now, find a second job to support yourself while you grow into the trade. And garden or volunteer at a botanical garden. Learn about plants. The worldwide WWOOF program (Workers on Organic Farms) is fantastically accessible.

Dentro de su formación, la floricultora fue bacaria en el Royal Botanic Gardens de Kew, Inglaterra.

As part of her botanical education, Christin was an intern at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, England. (Photograph Christin Geall)

TL: You have botanical knowledge, a gift with words and photographer’s eye. When is your flower book coming out?
CG: Hah! I did make a deal with myself that if I hit 10K followers on Instagram I’d approach a Canadian agent with a proposal. But I’m not there yet, and frankly I probably need 100K followers these days.

Some of these flowers (and the cabbage and brussels) came from the lovely Katherine at Wormistoune.  Thank you.



Innes & Amelia's wedding was certainly a day I'll never forget, these guys really know how to throw a party! Split between two stunning venues - Magicwell House (Amelia's family home) and the incredible Cambo House, the day had a real sense of grandeur! Amelia looked absolutely stunning in her Sabina Motasem dress, and Innes and his band of merry man scrubbed up pretty well too! From the impromptu trumpet solo during the ceremony to the rather chaotic ceilidh dancing later in the evening, the day was full of fun and laughter! Here's Innes and Amelia's amazing wedding day...

Glasshouses at Cambo

Victorian Glasshouses & a Day at Cambo…..

StickyDesign, Garden buildAlitex, Aluminium, Conservatories, Glasshouses,Greenhouses, Victorian


I was lucky enough last week to be invited to Cambo Estate, near St. Andrew’s, home to Sir Peter & Lady Catherine Erskine, to a presentation of their beautiful new glasshouses. Their walled garden had beautiful Victorian timber framed glasshouses that had seen better days and were needing an upgrade.

They engaged Alitex, mastercraftsmen to undertake this project and I have to say I think the Alitex Glasshouses are simply stunning. Keeping the Victorian style which undoubtedly is the best for this beautiful walled garden, Alitex glasshouses combine the use of modern materials and technologies but retain the elegance of the Victorian style and the same growing experience as Victorian timber frames.

In place of timber they use aluminium which doesn’t have the associated maintenance such as scraping, sanding or repainting and as a result they offer a lifetime guarantee on their products.

My clients will generally be looking to replace a timber greenhouse rather than a larger structure such as a glasshouse and I would have no hesitation in recommending they look at Alitex Greenhouses. They will always ensure that their Victorian Greenhouses will complement your garden and fulfil your growing needs as they have the engineering and structural expertise, especially when it comes to bespoke solutions and flexibility of design. Browse their website for yourself and see what they have to offer, you won’t be disappointed. I’m sure the Victorian pioneers of glasshouses would be as impressed as I was…..



Tie the Knot

Lovely feature!




What a glorious Spring Day it was today and we were out and about enjoying our "Monday Meander" courtesy of a lovely recommendation from The World According to Harris =)

We visited the Cambo Estate and Grounds in Fife. Although their official Snowdrop Walk is over there were still lots of them around to appreciate and we had a walk through the Walled Garden (dogs allowed on leads) which are no doubt gorgeous in the Summer months. The pups then had a blast on a beautiful sheltered sandy cove which the estate leads down to. These are the best types of days off

The Lumsden Club - Secret Garden Party at Cambo Estate

A gorgeous event full of fairy lights .....

The Lumsden Club

The Lumsden Club is a proud supporter of women’s, children’s and neighbourhood charities. Currently, we have a handful of local and international charities which we support financially and through hands-on volunteering.

All members of the club participate in weekly volunteering to help our community and those in need. The Lumsden Club has a longstanding relationship with a number of local charity shops including Save The Children and Barnardo’s and we are excited to have recently expanded our volunteering to the British Heart Foundation charity shop. In keeping with our aim to promote the arts, a number of members also volunteer at the Byre. The club looks forward to increase our support network for Families First, who are committed to assisting and encouraging local family units..

The Lumsden Club directs all the proceeds from our events to the projects we support financially. A crucial factor when discerning the recipients of our financial contributions is a clear insight into how the funds will be spent. Hence, all of the organizations we support monetarily is either based locally or is relatively small. To that end we have established a close collaboration with Tayside Children with Cancer and Leukaemia (TCCL), located in Fife.

In the recent past, we have contributed to charities such as orphanages and HIV centres across the globe from Guatemala to Kenya


​Cambo Cartshed

Cambo cartshed forms one side of a traditional pan tiled farm courtyard tucked away in the East Neuk of Fife. It is adjacent to Cambo farmhouse which forms another side of this courtyard. Both these houses were completely modernised and first occupied early in 2015. The heating is underfloor on the ground floor and with radiators on the first floor driven by a ground source heat pump which is powered by our wind turbine.

The cartshed consists of an open plan ground floor with two beds adjacent to a wet shower room and Loo with a sitting area and 42 inch colour TV at the other end. The sitting area can be shut off from the bedroom area by a sliding doors across the room.

Upstairs is another twin bedroom (or the beds can be zipped together to form a king-size bed), shower and loo and fully equipped kitchen.

The accommodation was designed for my mother and her carer and as such works extremely well. The ground floor is entirely wheelchair accessible but as all the cooking facilities are on the first floor it is not suitable for a disabled person on their own.
