When you work with brides almost every day, the love stories you get told are often the sweetest and most beautiful things you’ll hear. I love watching the faces of my brides lighten up as they tell me the story of their journey. Kathleen had a wonderful tale to share, and working with her was one of my greatest delights. She had such a kind and gentle personality and a lovely smile to reflect that.
Kathleen and Mick’s ceremony was held in scenic gardens of Cameron Lodge, with luscious greenery to accompany them on their special day. Splashes of colour were added in with flowers by Raven and Rose, creating a truly magnificent setting.
Words from the bride.
“Every girl dreams of marrying her best friend. Every girl wants to look and feel the most beautiful and Cathleen helped me feel just that. I was struggling to find ‘the one’ until I discovered Cathleen Jia. Can I just say ‘wow’ because every gown I tried on looked stunning. One particular gown I tried on was called the Sarah, and at that moment I knew I found my dream dress. I instantly fell in love with the delicate lace. Cathleen created a bespoke version of the Sarah to suit exactly what I wanted.
I’ll never forget the experience I had with Cathleen. Catching up for our fittings was always a delight. It gave me such an appreciation seeing the incredible effort that went into making my dream gown.
Our special day was everything we imagined and more. After waking up in the most superb cottage with my two best friends, we had the most relaxing day together. Throughout the day I would sneak off and have a quick glimpse at my dress, holding back tears of happiness. I couldn’t wait to put it on. The sun was shining and the gardens were looking fabulous. It was perfect. I am so grateful I found you Cathleen. Thank you for being so wonderful.”
