We are delighted to announce that the Oban beauty salon, Oro Rosa Makeup & Beauty, was triumphant at the Scottish Wedding Awards 2020.
The business was crowned the Central Scotland Hair and Makeup Salon of the Year at the ceremony held in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, in Glasgow, in February.
Speaking about the win, owner, Natalie Pacitti said: ‘I can’t believe I was even a finalist for such an amazing award, never mind a winner. When they called my name, I actually said: “Oh my god, that’s me”.
‘I was so nervous leading up to my category and as soon as I had won all my nerves disappeared and I was a total high, I have never felt so many emotions at once. This means everything to me – to be recognised for something I love doing is amazing.
‘I can’t thank everyone who supports me enough. All my amazing clients, my gorgeous brides who ask me to be part of their special day, to my family and friends, I couldn’t do any of it without them.
‘I feel so lucky. I get to do something that was always a hobby to me as a job.
When a bride asks me to do her makeup for a wedding I feel so overwhelmed, it’s such a huge part of their day and to be picked to do that is an absolute honour.’
Speaking about the event itself, the Oban beauty salon owner said: ‘The wedding awards were fantastic. I got to meet so many other people that were part of the wedding industry and I feel so lucky to be part of a great industry. Everyone looks after each other, it’s lovely.’
