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 of buying and creating that special dress. I had seen something that I really wanted in a picture about 5 years ago. Catherine looked at this crumpled picture, listened to my needs and made something even better. Thank you Catherine, you made my day and helped me to feel beautiful and special. Sally Jackson [Read less]
Catherine is an extremely talented wedding dress maker!
I could not find what I was looking for in wedding dress shops and felt like the prices were very steep considering there would still be tailoring costs once the dress was bought. I'm so glad I went to Catherine because from the moment I met her I knew she understood exactly what i was looking for and worked cleverly with my budget. A friend of mine that came with for a few of my fittings was so impressed with Catherine that she is making her dress too!
Her passion and excitement for what she does shines through in every stitch and the finished dress is totally unique to me, fits perfectly and is the dress of my dreams! It was a very personalised experience, one that a dress shop could never come close to. I got to collaborate with Catherine and had so much fun seeing our vision come to life.
Not wanting a traditional wedding dress I chose to to wear red on my wedding day - not the easiest thing to source - and having seen what a great job Catherine did of making my friend's wedding dress I decided to see if she was up for the challenge. Thankfully she was and the result was fantastic. Catherine totally bought into my vision, even painstakingly removing hundreds of beads from the lace, and knew exactly what would suit me. The final product was absolutely stunning and it was really lovely having a bespoke dress designed and made for me by such a talented designer and dressmaker. The dress was so amazing I was a little worried 'it' would upstage me on the day itself but not only did I feel incredible wearing it but the dress was also really comfortable and easy to move in, and it fit perfectly with the day.

Now that we’ve come down to earth after our fabulous wedding and short break at Lake Como, I had to let you know the impact your wonderful dress made. I felt like a million dollars when I was ready to leave the house. The dress was perfect and positively shimmered in the sunshine……yes the sun shone at exactly the right times during the afternoon! Everyone without exception complimented my dress, the gorgeous colour, the design and how much it suited and flattered me. I shall never forget Roger’s face when he saw me walking towards him. Thank you so much for being such a genius Catherine. I don’t have the easiest shape to work magic with, but you certainly made me the most beautiful dress I could have imagined. Once again many, many thanks for making me feel so special. [Read less]
Catherine, 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. [Read less]
