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!


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’.
