  • Design and measure - she will sketch out various designs based on your ideas and discuss her ideas with you. She will start to measure you and will pin you into a basic dress shape so she can start to create your dream dress.
  • First Fitting - this allows you to try on your personalised dress and tweaks can be made to the final design. She will start to craft your wedding dress, ensuring each and every stitch is perfect.
  • Final fitting - This is the last opportunity to make any last minute changes before your big day and of course try on your dress one last time before you tie the knot!

  • Marianne

    Catherine was the most incredible designer to work with. In our first meeting she took the inspiration I gave her for my dress and she drew a design that was absolutely perfect, and just what I had envisioned!

    Catherine showed me the right fabrics for my budget and her energy and enthusiasm for her work made me feel so excited about the process. When I had my final fitting she made the day so special and was also kind enough to lend me a veil, Two of my friends have decided to use her for their dresses too!

  • Alison

    “From the second I stepped into the studio I was blown away! I found that I was quite stressed and felt so negative about this stage in organising my wedding. All of that melted away when I met Catherine. She is a wonderfully calming, positive and mentally healing lady, and I knew straight away I was in good hands! I don’t even believe Catherine understands how absolutely amazing she is. I am so glad I found her for my dress and I will do anything to pass this on to other brides.

  • Michelle

    Catherine is a very professional, warm and caring person. She has the ability to realise your dream without having to be too prescriptive. She has an intuitive ability which enables her to design, adjust, flex and deliver just what you want. Catherine was faced with quite a challenge. I live in Germany, and after my initial measurements, I lost a lot of weight, so she did a fabulous job to basically re-design and re-make my dream dress in less than 6 weeks. She should win an award!”
