Maria Lucas Bridal Hair and Makeup

Bristol | Cornwall | South West

Hi, I’m Maria. Welcome to my website.

Having worked in bridal hair and makeup for over twenty years (including for Dior), I am more passionate than ever about providing high-quality hair and makeup packages for you and your bridal party. With extensive training which includes Asian, airbrushing, and camouflage, I am well-equipped to ensure you look and feel your best on your big day. 

I provide a high-quality service which is reflected in the products I use. You can expect to see high-quality vegan brands including Charlotte Tilbury, Nars, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Arbonne, and more. 

My role is not only to have you looking amazing but also feeling amazing. You can expect a friendly, professional, and flexible service that caters to you and what makes you unique. I want you to feel as relaxed as possible whilst preparing for one of the most important days of your life. 

Whether you’re looking for boho chic, Hollywood glamour, or anything in between I can create your unique bridal hair and makeup look, working with your features and skin tone to provide you with a flawless finish

I have bases in both Bristol and Cornwall, covering the South West, however, I am happy to travel to other parts of the UK and internationally to help you achieve perfection on your wedding day. I also have a team of highly-skilled artists, so can cater to all sizes of wedding parties.

Client Testimonials

“Maria is absolutely brilliant! She understood exactly what I wanted and my make up was perfect. She was excellent on the morning and made me laugh so much which calmed my nerves! My 3 bridesmaids looked stunning, they all had slightly different ideas of what they wanted and Maria did a great job. All of our make up stayed put for the whole day. I would definitely recommend, thank you so much! Xxx”

What to expect.

Trial and consultation

Regardless of which package you choose, prior to your special day, you can expect a bridal hair and makeup trial and consultation to ensure we achieve exactly what you want. This is an opportunity for you to bring any pictures or inspiration for the look you wish to create and for me to learn more about your wedding. If you are able to provide me with this information before the trial along with a portrait I will also use my expertise to bring some of my own ideas to the table and make sure nothing is overlooked. I encourage you to bring pictures of your dress and flowers so that I can understand the theme of your wedding before creating your look. Not only do I want to hear about your wedding, but I want you to look and feel perfect! Trials take around two hours. 

 On the day 

Arriving at a location and time of your choice, I start by working with your bridal party so that your hair and makeup are as fresh as possible before walking down the aisle. Knowing that everything has been planned during your initial trial and consultation, you can relax and make the most of your big day. Because of the quality of the brands that I use you can expect to spend the rest of your day looking flawless and without a stray hair in sight. 

 After the day 

 I love what I do and gain a great amount of joy from being a part of the happiest day of people’s lives. I would be delighted to hear how your big day went afterward and to share in your joy too.
