Bridal Makeup


I have been a specialist bridal makeup artist since 2002 and have worked on hundreds of brides. This extensive experience means that I realise just how important your hair and make up is for your big day!

Every bride should look perfect on their wedding day. That's why I give premium service for such competitive prices. I will help create a relaxing, calm, fun atmosphere, soothe any nerves and help the preparations run smoothly. I have lots of experience working with photographers and any other hairdressers to ensure the smooth running of your preparations.


Makeup Trial

Makeup Trial


I will visit your home to carry out a trial.

I recommend a trial is normally done 4/6 weeks before the wedding day. By this time you should know how you are wearing your hair, (if not booking a full Bridal Package) what accessories you have and what your colour scheme is. These are all things that help us decide what style and colours of makeup we are going to use. If you wish to have a trial sooner than this then that's fine with me also. The trial must be carried out on the bride as the products used on you must be tested to check that you have no sensitivities to them.

Once we have discussed how you would like to look on the wedding day and decided on styles and colours, adjustments will be made until you are 100% happy. The trial usually lasts 2-3 hours however I will stay for as long as it takes until we have created your perfect look! I will take photographs and will of course make a record of all the products we use to completely replicate your look on the big day!


On Your Wedding Day


On your special day I will help you to relax and take a moment for yourself whilst you are pampered and transformed into the perfect bride. You can relax knowing you are in the safe hands of someone who knows exactly what you want.

I will arrive at the time and place agreed and will work from the notes made at your trial but will also listen to any new ideas and last minute requests you may have.



For brides who wish to learn how to apply their own makeup on their wedding day or brides getting married abroad a comprehensive makeup lesson is a great idea!

I was so pleased with the service I received from Maressa on my wedding day. She made me look like a princess and I felt a million dollars. She was so friendly and put me at my ease and I was so pleased with the result. I could not have asked for anything better.
