Meet The Team

Founder - Bridal Hair & Makeup Specialist

Creator of Maria Lucas Bridal Hair and Makeup Team   

I have always been passionate about makeup, and there is nothing I enjoy more than being a part of the bride’s big day. Having trained with Jamie Coombs, I became a lead makeup artist for Dior and was nominated as a Bristol and Somerset wedding awards finalist. My experience and passion are ingrained in my career as a makeup artist, which has spanned over twenty years. 

After gaining my degree in Media, Special Effects, and Theatrical Makeup Design, I was lucky enough to have worked in fashion, editorial, catwalk, and film, where I learned to do hair which is my true passion. I am proud to say that my work has been published in many magazines.

My speciality is effortlessly beautiful hair and makeup, and I am a big believer in enhancing natural beauty using a variety of cruelty-free luxurious products to ensure a flawless and long-lasting look, leaving you to feel confident and beautiful on your wedding day.

You will receive a professional yet relaxing service, personalised to get the most out of your wedding day.

I am committed to providing the best experience to all my clients, so I undertake regular training to ensure I am up to date with all of the latest fashions, trends, and techniques, including airbrushing makeup.

I also offer a range of beauty treatments to prepare for your big day, including derma-planing HD Brows and Lash lifts.
