Meet the Supplier: Makeup By Mary

As part of our brand new series, we’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help connect you with suppliers for your wedding day.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Midlands based and modern bridal makeup service Makeup By Mary.

What makes you different?

I’ve been told that I’m a very laid back and bubbly person when it comes to the trial and wedding morning, which is nice to hear! You can read more about what some of my clients have said here.

If you love a killer red lip (like me) or winged liner, I say go for it! 

My aim is to make you look like yourself and be bursting with confidence at your most beautiful.

How did it all start?

I didn’t really get into makeup until I left college doing what I thought was right for me. I had always loved doing makeup on myself and enrolled onto an intense course in makeup artistry – something I enjoyed. Although originally I didn’t want to go into the wedding industry, one of my friends asked me to do their bridal makeup and since then my business has flourished.

Why should couple choose you?

I’m there to take into consideration your dress, wedding dress and colour themes, likes and dislikes to help create your bridal makeup look. If you are not too sure what style of makeup to have or feel a bit timid because you barely wear makeup, I’m there to help and that’s also why we do trials!

Once all members of the bridal party are ready on your wedding morning, I’m an extra helping hand for anything that you need me to do! I stay with you up until the very moment you leave for your ceremony for any last minute touch-ups and give you a small kit of powder and lipstick for you to take with you.

If you have a few little ones about, I can give them a little swish of blusher and lipgloss complimentary to make them feel extra special.

Words of wisdom

It is YOUR wedding. Have some fun and personalise it to what you and your fiancé like rather than having guests telling you what they like and dislike.

It’s a special day, make sure that you are also surrounded by a bridal party that are helpful and bring you so much happiness on the morning of your wedding!

Achievements

In October 2019, I was awarded ‘Outstanding Beauty Professional of the Year’ by The Midlands Beauty Industry Awards. In May 2020, I was awarded Regional Winner of West Midlands’ ‘Freelance Makeup Artist of the Year’.

Wedding inspiration for 2021

Wedding Inspiration for 2021

A guest article.

We all need a bit of inspiration sometimes, and planning a wedding is no different. There’s so much to think about – from finding the ideal venue and the perfect wedding band, to the dress of your dreams and a menu that will please everyone.

But 2021 is no ordinary year, for obvious reasons. It could be that you’re working on a tighter budget than usual, or maybe after the year everyone’s had you want your wedding to be a smaller, more personal affair. If this sounds like you, then a DIY wedding could be exactly what you need in 2021.

It’s no secret that a bit of creative flair can save you a lot of money when planning a wedding. But it could also help the environment. For example, what materials could you reuse to create decorations or table settings?

Bunting is a classic choice which you could make yourself with recycled fabrics. You can also think about how guests might reuse or keep items. Their name place cards could be a keepsake, for example. Or you could even include a personalised drawing or poem, if you’re feeling really arty. People have even used pegs or potted plants! You’re only as limited as your creativity, and the internet has plenty of ideas to help.

If you’re a star baker, why not bake your own wedding cake? Or maybe your friends and family have hidden talents that could come in handy throughout the day, too?

Incorporating DIY elements into your wedding is sure to make the occasion more unique. You don’t have to take on the whole of the wedding yourself, of course – this might be a daunting task! But by sprinkling some DIY elements here and there, you’ll make your wedding more personal and even more meaningful – both for you, and your guests.

Hopefully you’re now feeling more inspired as you plan your special day, but if DIY weddings aren’t your cup of tea there’s plenty more inspiration out there if you need it! Check out our dedicated page full of the latest wedding tips and tricks
