We looked aesthetic as fuck for a day

Well, of course, it was the day I got my wedding hair and makeup trial along with our pre-wedding photoshoot.

My wedding hair and makeup artist was by far the most difficult supplier to find and decide upon. I knew from the outset that I didn’t want an European make-up artist – no racist (lol) but they cannot work Asian faces and I usually come away looking older than my true years.

There were plenty of Asian make-up artists on the East Coast, but I struggled for months to find one in Perth. I don’t know how but my sister stepped in and managed to find several options for me in a day, and strongly recommended a Korean makeup style, not that I know how it’s really different to other Asian styles. The first she found for me ended up being the one I’ve decided to go with: Mimi/Mitonix Artistry.

Mimi was so personable, professional, such a perfectionist and just absolutely amazing. I asked for a soft, natural and romantic style and if I may say so myself, she worked her magic on me! Starting with the car selfies: 😍

Michael and I have very, very few decent-looking photos of ourselves together. But dayum, Darek and Aggie of WithU Photography managed to capture such aesthetic versions of us! 😋

Wooo! It was such a stormy, windy, heavily rainy mid-winter day in Perth that day. All throughout the makeup trial I was looking out the window at the pouring rain and accepting that we’d probably be forced to take (tragically romantic?) photos in the rain. On the way to the University of Western Australia to meet our photographers, the stormy weather still showed no signs of easing. Then all of a sudden, everything cleared! And it stayed that way for the next hour – just for us. 😀
