Catherine and Patrick

Catherine and Patrick Catherine in her Gown Catherine's Bridesmaids

Catherine married Patrick on 26th August 2016 in Lucca Tuscany wearing a Bespoke Gown designed by Lily Barclay. Catherine was attended by her Bridesmaids Amy, Emily, Kelda, Jacqueline, Hayley, Faye and her Flower Girl Amelia.


Catherine was a real pleasure to work with over the 20 months that it took to create her “Perfect Dress” and all the Bridesmaids had their own input. I designed Catherine’s dress with lots of Catherine’s own input from her many ideas. I designed a unique and individual gown for each Bridesmaid incorporating her own “Personality” into it. We always had so much fun at each appointment especially if Catherine’s mum Helen was attending and there was “Fizz”. (“Loved working with you all, Patricia xx”)


  • My Journey: I first met Patricia, the owner of Posh Frocks in December 2014, where I discussed all my ideas with Patricia and it was at this stage we started to create my "Dream Dress". Once I was confident that we had created "My Dress" then it was time to tackle the Bridesmaids as I wanted all my girls to have an input in their own gowns so that they were totally unique to them. Even Faye and Amelia were not left out they added their ideas too.

  • Testimonials: What an amazing experience to be able to design my own wedding dress! The final dress was so completely me and that is only down to Patricia for listening to my MANY ideas! I felt a million dollars on my big day, in the knowledge this was MY dress, both designed & made to fit me. All my accessories were provided to perfectly tie in with my vision. I loved the fact all my bridesmaid dresses were bespoke to them too, allowing them to have a dress they adored and felt fab in. We had so many compliments on all the dresses! Thanks for the last 20 months Patricia! *5
