Catherine Parry Bridal
Catherine Parry, affectionately known as ‘Kitty’ to her friends and family, was born in Wales in 1922.
During her teenage years, whenever there was the opportunity Catherine loved nothing more than to visit the local cinema and she soon fell in love with Hollywood movies. Living through the Second World War and the hardships of rationing, and growing up in a small mining community, the films of the 1940s and 50s were to become her little escape from everyday life.
The stars of the silver screen, in particular Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, were also a clear influence on Catherine Parry’s unmistakable sense of style and, though she passed away in 1986, Catherine is fondly remembered for bringing a touch of Hollywood glamour to the Welsh Valleys.
The Catherine Parry bridal collection is a fitting tribute to Catherine that will become an enduring legacy, brought to life by her granddaughter, Maria Ryan, who has many happy childhood memories of watching the Hollywood classics on ‘Nana Kitty’s’ knee.
