HELENA SHAKESPEARE MUA
Make up Artist
"I get it. As the bride, everyone is going to be looking at you on your wedding day. So that’s where I come in! I’m here to create your perfect makeup look, taking the stress away from having to do your own makeup on your big day. Your look is so personal to you that it’ll be one that we’ve designed together. You’ll get the mirror the whole way through your trial, and we’ll keep evaluating at every step of the way; until we have something that you’re going to be excited to wear again on the day!"
Unlike other makeup artists, Helena hasen’t always worked with makeup. In fact, her journey into makeup started in her early twenties when she suffered with terrible acne. She would spend hours researching and trying new products in the hope that she could cover my problem. It was then that she developed a love of all things makeup. So much so that she left my job as history teacher and finally plucked up the courage to began her bridal business in my early thirties.
Helena covers weddings across the Midlands, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Warwickshire and the Cotswolds. And she’ll provide you with a friendly and professional service that will leave you feeling confident and comfortable for your big day ahead.

It’s so important for us to celebrate and commemorate our milestone life events with our friends and family. And we do this through ceremonies – marking our happy, joyful and sometimes sad occasions too. Every one of us has our own story, and I love finding out all about you and helping you to tell your story within your special Ceremony.
Sharon's own professional story is diverse, having walked a meandering path. She is a qualified teacher, worked in Local Government, lived abroad, worked in Finance and more recently she cared for teenage girls as a Foster Carer for over 10 years. All of this has led her to where she is am now. It’s given me so much experience of life. As a young woman she had no idea that I’d enjoy creating Ceremonies for special occasions.
