Meeting Catherine and seeing her enthusiasm for her craft and seeing that flow into her work. She’s a genuinely beautiful person inside and out and it was an honour having her be part of what will always be one of the most important days of my life.


I can’t believe my luck in finding you. From the first phone call to collecting my dress, I couldn’t have asked for a more friendly, creative, detail-focused person to have made my dream dress. Thank you doesn’t cover it.


I turned to Catherine after searching without hope for a dress which would express my personality and allow me to feel comfortable in myself on my big day. It was immediately clear that she not only knew her craft inside and out, allowing her to bring out the best of my body but also got ME, my off-beat, fantastical hopes for the dress. The dress she created is magnificent, unique and so entirely "me". Catherine was a pleasure to work with throughout, and I could not recommend her enough


Finding Catherine was a highlight of my wedding experience. After despairing of boutiques, Catherine designed a dress that felt entirely "me" - she listened to all of my ideas and designed a wearable, stunning dress. I felt like a Hollywood star, and yet fully confident that I had freedom to move, to hug, to dance.


My experience with Catherine was amazing. From the studio to the personal service, Catherine has created a magical experience. I was not getting married for the first time and I still felt it was the best experience I had ever had.


Catherine’s enthusiam showed at every single stage, and it was contagious. It’s wonderful to see someone love what they do so much, and be so amazing at it.


Thank you doesn’t seem like enough to say, you are absolutely amazing. I enjoyed each appointment, we are going to miss you. You are incredible at what you do and you made me feel like a princess on my special day!


Thank you for being calm, thoughtful, creative and supportive. Mum has a terminal illness and so much of the wedding was made less stressful for her by your reassurance and expertise. So I really am very grateful.
