Festival Fun in the Sun....we hope!

Hi Di Hi Campers!!

Lisa here!! Hope you're all enjoying our fabulous weather! Long may it continue. The Cupcake gals are venturing outside again this weekend so good weather is a must to keep the vintage hair doos in mint condition!

As many of the events we perform at are private functions, we thought you may like a little Gig Guide of the ones you can attend! We've had a great summer so far, performing at The Glasgow Mela, Stirling's Military Show & Glasgow's Armed Forces Day to name but a few, though after 2 weekends off (celebrating Lynnie's wedding for one!) we are ready to rock & first up is THE GLASGOW SHOW! 
Sadly, at the moment, we're unsure of where exactly we'll be performing (possibly in the VIP section only!) but we'll be parading from George's Sq on Sarurday at 11.30am & you'll no doubt see us in & around Glasgow Green if you're going along. Details here on Glasgow City Council's site. 

Next weekend we're moving into the Merchant City! From 25th-28th July, well we may as we'll pitch a tent in the Fruitmarket, as we're performing every day! 

Early Thursday & Friday evening, you'll find us on Ingram Street entertaining shoppers & passersby as the boutiques in & around the area stay open late to join the festival fun.

On Saturday 27th we are very excited to be part of Wayne Hemmingway's The Vintage Festival. Again we'll be performing throughout the day, in & around the Fruitmarket area. There's so much to see & do so be sure to get yourself down there. A vintage marketplace, cinema & hair salon, where our beautiful & talented pinup shoot stylist Ariana aka VANITY THRILLS will be creating masterpieces. Here's everything you need to know...

Finally on Sunday 28th, we'll be in Merchsnt Sq with Dance House for another fabulous Family Dance Jukebox event. Cone along & get boogieing with us! 

 "Dance Juke Box is a unique blend of performance and participation in a wide range of dance styles......high energy, fun opportunities to engage with dance for people of all ages and abilities"

So, I think that's enough for now...we won't even go into August with you yet! It's another jampacked extravaganza! 

Hope to see you at these fabulous events!

Haigy Gets Hitched!

On Saturday the whole Cupcake Clan headed to sunny Luss for the beautiful wedding of our gorgeous fellow Cupcake Lynne to her Prince Charming, Steven! Cupcake Evette & boyfriend Gerry even flew in from Paris for the special occasion which we were all very excited about. Always super to see our lil' Eva. We miss her so much! 

Cupcake Kelly had the earliest of starts, on the road at 7am armed with her box of tricks ready to have the blushing Bride & Bridesmaids looking perfect as official makeup artist of the day. When she left the ceremony saying she 'had to now go get ready', I could hardly believe she didn't even have a stitch of makeup on....she looked gorgeous!! I thought she WAS ready!!!

Myself & wee sis, Cupcake Emma also had a special role to play in the day's proceedings. The Bride & Groom-To-Be, when they were planning their big day, had asked us both to sing at the service & chose  'I'll Always Be Right There' by Bryan Adams. It had been Emma & Martin's first dance song at their wedding & Lynne & Steven loved it & it's touching lyrics were just perfect for their ceremony. What an honour to be asked to sing at their wedding & although we were a little nervous as we stood up to begin,  we managed to perform it without blubbering (always emotional at a wedding!) & received lots of lovely compliments throughout the day which told us we must've pulled it off.  

The happy couple looked like those models you get in wedding magazines. Honestly, what a handsome couple they make. Our Lynnie was radiant & just beamed the entire day. Steven couldn't keep his eyes off his stunning bride & gave such a beautiful speech about marrying his 'best friend'. 

After a stunning afternoon sipping champagne on the lawn overlooking the Loch, a scrummy wedding breakfast, brilliant speeches from the top table & a good old catch up natter with the entire  Cupcake gang (the lads too!), it was time to boogie the night away!
The Cupcake gals were one of the first groups to hit the dance floor as you can imagine & what a blast we had. Lynnie was on top form as always, busting some serious moves, including a leg-guitar in her beautiful lace gown! The dance floor was packed the entire night & the usual Cupcake banter round the table ensued. It really was a corker day! 

That's our Lynnie Mrs Percy now! As she jets off on honeymoon with Steven, we want to wish them a lifetime of love, laughter & adventure. They are a perfect match & we're just thrilled to have been part of their day! It's memories like this that make Cupcake Life even sweeter! 

Who's next to walk down the aisle we wonder??!!!
