As one of Ireland's most sought after bridal makeup artists, Paula knows how to make every bride look and feel like a princess on their big day.

Bridal Makeup

At Paula Callan Bridal, we pride ourselves on making your experience with us a very special one. From the moment you fill in a request the date to the big day itself, our team are on hand to answer any queries you might have no matter how big or small. 

Our amazing bridal co-ordinator Helen is one of the warmest and friendliest person you could ever have the pleasure of working with. Helen will be your point of contact for everything from booking your trials to giving recommendations for tan, skincare professional and also organising timings for the day itself.

We have some of Ireland's best makeup and hair stylists on our books. Each of them has worked in the industry for many years and have gained immense experience in their chosen skills, earning them recommendations with brides all around the world.


The Trial

Once you have received confirmation that your team is available you will be advised to book your trials. We recommend anytime from three months before the big day. The reason for this is that your skin and hair will be in optimal condition plus the look will be fresh in your head.

For the trial we ask brides to bring a collection of pictures of makeup that they absolutely love. However keep in mind that you choose pictures of people that have similar colouring as you do. 

The trial for each service will last about one hour so ask as many questions and give feedback to your chosen team so you have the look you are most happy with. 

You will also be advised as to what products you should have on the wedding day for touch ups and also what not to do on the wedding morning (for example don't wear an SPF as it causes flash back for the photographer!). 



" Just wanted to say a very big thank you for doing all of our makeup on our wedding day. I was so happy with I, as well as all my bridesmaids, looked after your magical touch. It was exactly what I wanted and lasted all night long.


You and your assistant made my morning getting ready experience wonderful by being such a calm presence.


It was a privilege to get my makeup done by you. Thank you for making me feel like a beautiful bride and making my day extra special.


I will always be so grateful and can’t wait to see how fabulous the photos will come out. Couldn’t recommend you enough to anyone else getting married in Ireland"
