A Family Affair Sorrento: Wedding Make-up & Hair By Ellegant You

As EllegantYou’s reputation has flourished over the years, we continuously receive numerous emails about our services, which is just how Jorja first reached out to us.

She reached out for a trail for bridal hair and makeup and loved what we provided, booking our services for her big day! So on November 6, 2017, we met her at the beautiful rental house ( All Smiles) in Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia for the special day.

A wedding is a joyous time, when friends and family gather to celebrate a couple’s union into holy matrimony. It’s one of the biggest days in a couple’s lives and the day is always an important matter that deserves a bit of pampering. While we are no stranger to giving bride’s their picture-perfect looks on their wedding, we were also honored to provide our makeup and hair services to her mum, sister and sister-in-law, making the general beauty routine before the ceremony a family affair!

Jorja was naturally a beauty to behold so we knew she didn’t need a lot to look amazing for her wedding. She knew she wanted a light smoky eye, which was exactly what we provided, to go along with her Maggie Sottero design wedding dress from Raffaelle Ciuca. The result was chic and classic, allowing her natural beauty to shine through her makeup, which was from our Jane Iredale line that every bride love! Our mineral skincare makeup is not only great for a natural application, but will stay put even after the longest wedding day.

As far as her hair, Jorja initially wanted it half up and half down for a sophisticated look, but on the day of her wedding, the heat was pretty intense. She didn’t want to worry about her hair making her hotter than she already was so we went with a last minute change and created the most beautiful updo ever! She trusted our skills and let us work our magic for her wedding day, which we did not disappoint. Her mum, sister and sister-in-law were also in love with the looks we provided them, using Jorja’s natural but classic look as inspiration.

Everything turned out as beautiful and magical as Jorja first envisioned and we were more than happy to be part of her special day! Other vendors that helped make the big day even more special included Petal to the Metal, Matt Elliot Photography, Kat Sillars, Rachel Mary Films who caught it all on video, Cakes Red Hill, car rental from Kombi Love, Leafy Design Co. Green Wall and Big Font Industry, whose LOVE letters made the look complete!
