A Romantic Sorrento Wedding

In July I was very blessed to be doing bridal make for a beautiful bride and special friend – The location :

The Cloisters -Sorrento – Italy

Jacqui and I have worked together on many weddings as she is exquisite at bridal and bridesmaid hair.

This time she was doing her own hair and I applied her make up for her very own big day.

We had a make up trial and skin care advice plan pre wedding and talked about the look Jaq wanted to go for I was very privileged to be involved at this stage and we could plan her complete bridal look.

This was a challenging make up application as this was no ordinary wedding – firstly we had the heat to contend with – blue skies and a mid day wedding themperstures in the mid 30 degrees 

Add to that the  change of Jacquis skin colour due to pre wedding fun in the sun and other elements…

This make up would also need to withstand an on foot tour of Sorrento – lemocello shots,  dancing in the street and then a wedding breakfast in a beautiful Italian garden and an evening party…..


The brides look was classic vintage and we wanted to make sure her make up coincided perfectly so we went with a classic vintage Hollywood theme with a pink lip.

We had much deliberation over the lip colour but jacqui wanted to feel like herself on the day (you will notice this is something I encourage ) and so she went with a beautiful YSL Pink

Jacqui’s dress was a vintage classic from the US and all of Jacqui’s accessories and headpiece were hand made by the very talented Carly Kassube – See Carly’s beautiful work here https://www.instagram.com/misscmillinery

This make up needed to withstand the heat and all of the usual wedding elects hugs, tears, dancing etc and I barely had to touch up or re apply – Jacqui looked classically beautiful from start to finish.

My hero product at this wedding was  – Hydro Veil primer by Illamasqua
