Hello, I am Maria.

I love weddings; there is nothing I enjoy more than being part of the biggest day of a bride’s life!


Hi, I’m Maria and I’m a freelance hair and makeup artist, specialising in wedding hair and makeup, based in Bristol and Cornwall, covering the South West. I also create looks for other special occasions, including for a big girls night out or proms. 

Having worked as a beauty specialist and makeup artist for over twenty years, I decided to specialise in bridal hair and makeup because I LOVE weddings! There is nothing I enjoy more than being a part of the most special day of someone’s life. 

Whilst I thoroughly enjoy creating the perfect look and feel for someone on their wedding day, I also like to know that I am making it an overall more relaxing experience for my client so that they can get the maximum level of enjoyment as possible. Your wedding day is all about you and I want you to feel at ease.
