Francesca and Stefano Italian wedding.
I feel so excited sharing this special wedding!! In May I went back to my home country, Italy, to do the makeup for a pretty special bride: my sister Francesca. We have been through so much, good and bad, in our life that it was really a good feeling being there with her on this happy day. I still feel so emotional every time I look at these photos!
It was such a beautiful experience working alongside Hayley, from All Made Up, and Made Up by Ruth for this unique and special wedding. On the 1st of March, Jessica, which suffers from a rare heart disease, married the love of her life, Troy.
Jess was born with six hearth conditions and has had four heart operations, including a Fontan triple bypass, where her entire heart had to be reconstructed. At age 18, due to a complete hearth block and a heart failure, she became permanent pacemaker-dependent.
She is now on the waiting for what is set to be the riskiest operation to date, and first of its kind in New Zealand: a double transplant for her heart and liver.
Jessica and Troy wanted their wedding dream to happen before the transplant, so they put a call out on a Givealittle page to help fund their wedding. Dozen of wedding vendors offered their services to help the couple.
It was such a pleasure and an honour to be part of their special day!

When Fumiko first step into my home studio with her little son Ray, I knew we were going to have a great time together.
We immediately clicked and by the time of her wedding it felt as if we had been friends for a long time.
Fumiko’s makeup was all about highlighting her natural beauty, we choose a soft smokey eye and a pretty coral lippy.
For her hair I used my trusted H2D curling wand and the highly performing Kevin Murphy hair products.
