I’m Bryony and I began my journey into a career in make up artistry as soon as I finished my studies and could spread my wings out of compulsory education. With a creative heart and a love for all things make up I headed to college, graduating two years later with distinction honours in Theatrical and Special FX artistry. Despite loving all the gory and fun side of prosthetics my passion still most definitely lay with making people look and feel at their most beautiful and so my career headed into a new direction away from severed limbs and character make up towards bridal and beauty projects.

Always keen to build on my skills I headed to London to attend the super prestigious AOFM, taught by the best of the best I skipped back to the midlands months later enthused and excited to start my career as a freelance make up artist. During the early days I freelanced alongside working for premium cosmetic houses Space NK and Bobbi Brown in elite make up artist roles where I worked as part of the pro team at huge events such as London Fashion Week and Brides The Show.

After juggling an ever growing successful business and my work within the cosmetic industry for years, I decided to jump in and take the plunge to give my freelance work and ultimately my brand my full attention and go at it fully on my own. Here we are, four years on and I haven’t looked back. Due to very high demand I mostly specialise in the wedding industry and am lucky enough to have made up thousands of brides during my career. Last year I was crowned Make up Artist of the Year for the West Midlands at The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) 2018, a huge career highlight and a moment that still makes me burst with pride even now.

Here comes the bride!

My focus and where I have made my mark is within the bridal industry and I now find myself lucky enough to assist hundreds of brides each year with looking and feeling their most beautiful on their wedding day.

The wedding world is bigger than ever. It’s an ever changing, trend led, party industry centred around you having the best day ever and I am obsessed with it. I genuinely could and do talk weddings all day everyday and am forever amazed at how each of my many brides make their days so different.

As an experienced make up artist but also a total self confessed beauty junkie I pride myself on my extensive product knowledge, in-depth understanding of skin, giddy excitement for beauty products and ultimately my desire to make every bride feel utter perfection.

In a world of “Instagram” make up I stand loud and proud for creating flawless, long-wearing, natural and radiant wedding make up that is timeless and elegant both in person and on camera while always embracing you as an individual bride.

Despite the volume of brides I am proud to work with each year, I pride myself on giving everyone a bespoke and individual service so efficient you will never feel as though you are anything but my top priority. I am there to accommodate my brides every needs right from providing you with your initial in-depth quote, to being on the other end of the phone to answer any mid planning niggles or to offer advice should last minute stresses have your skin in turmoil. To me, this is all considered as part of the service and I truly aspire to be your on hand make up artist not only for the big day itself but throughout the entire planning process.

I can not recommend Bryony enough! She is the most gorgeous person inside and out, so talented and an amazing calming influence to have around on your big day! Bryony took on board completely what everyone wanted and their different requirements and everyone was so pleased, all our make up lasted well into dancing the night away! If you’re thinking of booking her then don’t think twice, do it!
