Million dollars

Catherine was amazing from start to finish. She made me feel so comfortable with the whole process & yet special at the same time. I loved my time in her studio. Every part of the process was smooth, professional & inspired. I felt like, in a short space of time, she understood what I wanted and she made a dress that was 'me' but also glamorous. I felt like a million dollars in it. Many said it was the most beautiful dress they had seen!”

Genuinely beautiful person

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.”

Pleasure to work with

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”
