Hi – I’m Storme
I tailor create effortless looks that are natural and enhance your individual features and style. Each makeup application is personalised, leaving you feeling comfortable, confident and yourself on your special day. I specialise in soft, romantic and chic hairstyles that are elegant, long lasting and timeless.
Due to popular demand and a high rate of bookings, should I not be available, I am proud to offer a wonderful team of artists that share my enthusiasm, style and drive for the bridal industry.
An elite team of hand-picked, talented professional hair and makeup artists that are each carefully selected, quality trained and dedicated to their craft.
I started my career studying makeup straight after school. This was my ‘working’ Gap Year before studying psychology at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. However – I have always had a love for makeup, and a flair for the creative. My passion was fueled by my gap year studies, and I continued to freelance in makeup whilst doing my degree, thereafter I shifted my career path to suit my strengths and embraced my passion.
Having seen I was more of a creative than an academic, I strengthened my skills by studying Hairdressing, which compliments my makeup artistry.
Being strong at both disciplines allowed me the opportunity to be represented by one of the top artists management agencies in Cape Town. I have had the pleasure of working with big name brands such as Lipsy London, Coca Cola and Timberland to name a few.
Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. After getting married in 2015, I followed the love of my life to London.
After many years of doing commercial, television photographic hair and makeup, fueled by what my wedding meant to me and a new-found passion for the bridal industry – I began my journey, starting a business in London, focusing on the joy of weddings!
Having experienced being a bride, I share all the excitement with my brides and love hearing about the day they have planned when meeting them at their bridal consultation.
It is such a privilege to be allowed into one’s bridal morning and it gives me great pleasure getting the bride and bridal party ready for such a special and important day.
My husband and I live in Kingston upon Thames.
My partner is in the military and he couldn’t be prouder to serve this country.
We got married on a wine farm in Somerset West in Cape Town South Africa.
My whole wedding was based on him wearing his red tunic uniform!
I love red (phew…wedding saved!)
We have a beautiful little fur baby. Harley, a black one-year old Cockapoo. On my days off, she gets me out of the house for fresh air and lovely walks along the river or in Richmond Park. She has brought so much joy into our lives.
