Meet the Supplier: Makeup By Mary

As part of our brand new series, we’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help connect you with suppliers for your wedding day.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Midlands based and modern bridal makeup service Makeup By Mary.

What makes you different?

I’ve been told that I’m a very laid back and bubbly person when it comes to the trial and wedding morning, which is nice to hear! You can read more about what some of my clients have said here.

If you love a killer red lip (like me) or winged liner, I say go for it! 

My aim is to make you look like yourself and be bursting with confidence at your most beautiful.

How did it all start?

I didn’t really get into makeup until I left college doing what I thought was right for me. I had always loved doing makeup on myself and enrolled onto an intense course in makeup artistry – something I enjoyed. Although originally I didn’t want to go into the wedding industry, one of my friends asked me to do their bridal makeup and since then my business has flourished.

Why should couple choose you?

I’m there to take into consideration your dress, wedding dress and colour themes, likes and dislikes to help create your bridal makeup look. If you are not too sure what style of makeup to have or feel a bit timid because you barely wear makeup, I’m there to help and that’s also why we do trials!

Once all members of the bridal party are ready on your wedding morning, I’m an extra helping hand for anything that you need me to do! I stay with you up until the very moment you leave for your ceremony for any last minute touch-ups and give you a small kit of powder and lipstick for you to take with you.

If you have a few little ones about, I can give them a little swish of blusher and lipgloss complimentary to make them feel extra special.

Words of wisdom

It is YOUR wedding. Have some fun and personalise it to what you and your fiancé like rather than having guests telling you what they like and dislike.

It’s a special day, make sure that you are also surrounded by a bridal party that are helpful and bring you so much happiness on the morning of your wedding!

Achievements

In October 2019, I was awarded ‘Outstanding Beauty Professional of the Year’ by The Midlands Beauty Industry Awards. In May 2020, I was awarded Regional Winner of West Midlands’ ‘Freelance Makeup Artist of the Year’.

Meet the Supplier: Tanya Flannagan Photography

As part of our brand new series, we’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help connect you with suppliers for your wedding day.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce UK based photographer Tanya Flannagan Photography.

A light, airy and natural style, with a relaxed and friendly approach to wedding photography. Tanya Flannagan Photography is a UK based wedding photographer, that travels far and wide documenting weddings.

What makes you different?

Wedding photography is one of the biggest and most important things to book for your special day. 

So it’s really important to make sure you call/video or email to any photographers you may have in mind – to make sure you get on well. I think It’s really important to make that connection and understand 1) what it is you’re looking for and 2) if they are the person who can do that.

With me, its kind of “you get what you see”, as in – there is no sale technique I use. If you like me and my work, then yay! 

My main aim is that I just want you to feel relaxed in whatever situation you are in, and I like to blend into that situation. I have a very relaxed approach to weddings, and I like to get involved as and when I can. All of my past clients tell me how “it’s like having a friend on the day”, and that’s how I like it to be.

I want you, and your family, to feel relaxed and comfortable around me. That’s why I love to be me, and just me. 

Simple!

How did it all start?

My journey began when I was asked to take wedding photos for one of my friend’s sisters. I never thought that one wedding would create my entire career path, and I’ve been photographing weddings ever since.

I also do a lot of family/engagement and celebration photography too. I now couldn’t see myself doing anything else. 

I’ve always had a keen & creative ‘eye’ for photography – so I’m able to use that in my work now to create some really pretty moments. 

Why should couple choose you?

I would like to think couples should chose me because they love my work, and also myself. I honestly love every aspect of being a wedding photographer – and put my heart and soul into each wedding.

I’m always happy to chat/call or video so people can get to know me and see more of my work.

Words of wisdom

Its your day, so do what you want! Don’t stress about the things you cant have control over, and just remember to have a few moments on your day to take it all in.

Ps, if it rains – don’t worry! Just go dancing in it!

Meet the Supplier: DaisyBell Photography

As part of our brand new series, we’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help connect you with suppliers for your wedding day.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Lancashire based Wedding Photographer DaisyBell Photography.

daisybell-photography-meet-the-supplier-bouquet-and-bells

Tell us more

I am a Lancashire based Wedding Photographer, covering the whole of the UK and destination Weddings. I love colour and happiness and the excitement of all of my couples special days, and I have a relaxed, natural, documentary style approach to photography and I love experimenting with light. 

What makes you different?

My natural and friendly approach I feel really appeals to my couples. I am very laid back and I love the candid style of photography. I will take the more formal photos for Grandma and Grandads to be proud of but I feel my couples really appreciate getting to see all the happy, natural smiles and laughter of their friends and family and special moments they might have missed throughout the day. I stay in the background all day you will not know I am there, waiting for and hunting down those perfect shots.

How did it all start?

I have always had a love of photography since leaving university with a creative design degree in 2006. I started my business after some of my friends asked me to photograph their weddings after seeing my hobby of street photography grow. Since then, my business has grown from strength to strength and I have been fortunate to photography some amazing weddings both in the UK and abroad. 

Why should couples choose you?

I am super friendly and I love to really get to know my couples before their big day as this really helps create a unique relationship between us. We go for coffee at their venue before their wedding day and take a walk around the grounds to discuss where they would like their portrait session. Some of my couples have even become friends! 

Words of wisdom

Take your time and enjoy the run up to your big day. Even though it may seem like a lifetime away, you will never get this time back. Prepare yourself for an amazingly emotional day, cherish every moment and make sure to make memories that will last a life time. Take time out as a couple on your Wedding Day, go for a glass of champagne on your own and just enjoy the moment you have to yourselves.

Meet the Supplier: Elizabeth Anna Cake Design

As part of our brand new series, we’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help connect you with suppliers for your wedding day.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce cake maker Elizabeth Anna Cake Design.

What services do you offer?

I offer elegant, luxury wedding cakes.  Each one is bespoke to perfectly fit your wedding.

What makes you different? 

I specialise in delicate sugar flowers and contemporary designs.  I also offer luxury wedding favours.

How did it all start? 

Having baked since I was a little girl my husband bought me a few cake decorating classes as an anniversary gift and I discovered a natural flair for cake decorating.  After working in the NHS for 20 years I wanted to have a better family life/work life balance and so my cake business was born.  It grew so quickly that I split my business into two brands.  Elizabeth Anna Cake Design is my luxury wedding brand.  Named after my beautiful daughters I have built up a brand which is known for its elegant designs and flawless finishes.

Why should couples choose you? 

There are several moments on your wedding day that will definitely be captured and create memories that will last a lifetime.  Walking down the aisle, the speeches, the first dance and the cutting of the cake to name a few! You want these moments to be incredible and that includes a showstopper wedding cake that tastes as good as it looks.

Word of wisdom

To get the most out of your design and tasting consultation and design a cake which is completely bespoke to you gather ideas of what you like.  Pinterest is a great place for inspiration.  Do you like rustic buttercream and fresh flowers? Pretty ruffles or modern marble?  Geometric or floral?  

If you have an idea of what you like I can advise you on what works well together and best fits with your flowers, venue and theme.

Meet the Supplier: Walsh Films

As part of our brand new series, we’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help you find the perfect suppliers for your wedding day.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce fun-loving & adventurous filmmakers Walsh Films.

What services do you offer?

Cinematic & Personal Wedding Films

What makes you different? 

We build genuine relationships with our couples to create personal wedding films that are unique and driven by their Love Story. They’ll make you laugh, cry and want to get married all over again!

How did it all start? 

It all started when we got engaged! While searching for our perfect wedding, we fell in love with the industry and knew that a move from TV Production to wedding videography would be the perfect next step in our careers!

Why should couples choose you? 

Nervous in front of the camera? Yeah, so are we! We know what it’s like and have a wedding coming up ourselves. So we decided to put making our couples feel comfortable, at the top of our priority list! We stay out of the way, and keep as invisible as possible.

Word of wisdom

Make sure you know who your videographer is (behind the camera)! While it’s important that you like their work, you’ll be spending your wedding day with them! So be sure to get a good grasp of their personality by watching their instagram stories, reading their bio on their website, and definitely jump on a video call with them before you book!

Meet the Supplier: Beth Bakes

Introducing our brand new ‘Meet the Supplier’ series. We’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help you find the perfect suppliers for your day.

We’re thrilled to introduce Beth Bakes.

beth-bakes-cake-wedding-blog-feature-bouquet-and-bells
Photo credit: Rock Salt Photography

What services do you offer?

Bespoke, handmade, luxury wedding cakes

What makes you different? 

Apart from my family, cake is my life! If I’m not baking it, I’m decorating it! If I’m not baking, I’m looking for new ideas and techniques, I love attending masterclasses with industry leaders to improve my skills and you’ll find my attention to detail second to none!

How did it all start? 

After taking a break to start a family, I started making cakes for my children’s birthdays and it grew from there – friends would ask for cakes for their children and word spread!

Biggest achievements

Being able to create a huge variety of styles of cakes, not just being stuck in one genre.

Why should couples choose you? 

My cakes look fantastic and they taste amazing!

I understand that a wedding is a one off event where everything should be perfect and easy for you. My years of experience mean I can hold your hand from beginning to end – not just with your wedding cake but ensuring that it becomes a seamless part of your entire wedding. Because, whilst the cake is a huge part of most weddings,  I understand the need to liaise with other key services and not take up too much of your time as I know how much you have to do in the run up to a wedding. . This is why I often take this pressure away from you by liasing with florist, caterers, venues so you can focus on the things that need you (like picking out that dress!). 

 Before I started Beth Bakes, my husband and I ran a catering company for several years catering for many, many weddings so I have the ability to see the bigger picture.  Why not have a look at some of the testimonials customers have left for me on my website?

Word of wisdom

Consider the time of year when your wedding will take place and try to match your cake to the weather and venue – have you ever been in a very hot marquee in the middle of summer? Did you think “Gosh, I might melt in here”? What might happen to your chocolate covered wedding cake in that same situation????……..
