A catch-up with Kimberley Woodward


Kimberley Woodward’s business is the height of wedding fashion convenience, combining gown and accessory selection into one location, making the stress of choosing an outfit virtually non-existent. We interviewed the lovely lady behind this fabulous business venture, and here’s what she had to share with us:

What’s the inspiration behind your business?
My inspiration stems purely from a love of creating beautifully designed and constructed gowns with the focus on individually tailoring each gown to the bride’s body. I am inspired by delicate silks, vintage lace and intricate embellishment and constantly feel incredibly privileged to play such an important role in someone’s special day.

What makes your business unique?
After five years of study in both Fashion Design and Costume Design, I started off my career in the costume industry, which provided me with a higher level of couture skills than other textiles industries. Costumes are individually tailored and created to last through hundreds of performances and shows, and this is a skill I maintain in my bridal couture work. Working in exciting costume departments such as The Great Gatsby, Opera Australia and a few productions for Channel Nine gave me further skills necessary to create stunning gowns. Aside from that, I absolutely love what I do and that love shines through in everything I create.

What’s your favourite thing about working with couples?
I love personally getting to know each bride and hearing her story about her partner and their life together. Her excitement and love is always evident on her face as she discusses her future with the person she wants to spend her life with. I am fortunate to be able to say I love all aspects of my business, and I especially love seeing the excitement and happiness on the face of the beautiful bride as she watches her dream gown come to life before her eyes.

What does marriage mean to you?
To me, marriage means building your life with your best friend while you bring out the best in each other. Through all the ups and downs life throws at you; that person is your constant for love, support, encouragement and laughter. I know I am the best person I can be when I am with my fiancé, and I can’t wait to create a future with him by my side.
