Caitlin recognises the gap in the current market for affordable and cutting edge ‘Mother of the Bride’ attire and aims to simplify the process. The search for an outfit with that point of difference can often be incredibly stressful for many a proud mum. This can often overshadow the enjoyment involved with the wedding planning process. Quite often tailoring is a great option and Caitlin will assist in this process by drawing on a range of industry contacts and supporting you in the process.

Caitlin places an emphasis on the total look and ensures each outfit selection complements the theme of the wedding. From the most intricate accessories to shoe colour, attention to detail will not go unnoticed.
On The Day
So you've got everything covered? The dress, the bridesmaids, groomsmen and family. Have you thought about engaging a Fashion Stylist for your big day?
The wedding day is often a major fashion moment for a bride, the one moment when all eyes are on you. From the moment you walk down the aisle to the first dance and farewell. Having a Stylist with you "on the day" ensures someone is there to help you and your bridal party get ready. Steaming gowns, pinning, taping, removing stains, adjusting ties, pocket squares and ensuring the parents of the bride and groom are all set and ready to go.
One thing Caitlin remembers from her own wedding day is the night before. She was ironing the groomsmen's suits and writing notes on how to do their lapel pins rather than relaxing with family and friends. On the morning of the wedding, she was also focused on getting her bridesmaids and children in the bridal party dressed rather than looking after herself. She even remembers when she met her groom at the alter, the first thing she did was adjust his bowtie!
It can be extremely handy to have a Stylist on hand to ensure all the details are accounted for allowing you, your friends and family to enjoy the entire experience. Caitlin can even help stage portraits and assist with the prop styling of jewellery, travel garments to the venue and provide peace of mind to ensure that a fashion disaster will not impact your big day.
