The Wedding Industry Awards 2022

'I am proud to say that I won South Central Makeup Artist Of The Year!'

In January 2022, I had the absolute pleasure of attending The Regional Wedding Industry Awards, South Central event; an evening of celebration to recognise suppliers who work within the world of weddings- it's almost like the Oscars of our industry. It's lead by client votes, judged by an expert panel of judges; and more than 900 businesses from eight regions entered the awards this year! 
Not only did I attend the awards, but I am proud to say that I won South Central Makeup Artist Of The Year!

My name is Mariella and I'm an award winning, freelance Makeup Artist based in Oxfordshire; I specialise in bridal and wedding makeup, and have over 7 years of experience within the makeup industry. My passion for makeup began in my very early teens. As a child, right through to early adulthood, I was a dancer and performer, and that was what I had dreamt of doing. When it became clear that dance was no longer my path, I wanted to keep the creative juices flowing.
