Welcome to our latest ongoing project!
Over the coming months, we’ll be featuring “portrait interviews” with local businesses in the Glasgow & Aberdeen areas.
“What on earth is a portrait interview?!” we hear you cry! Well, essentially we photograph and interview local business owners to learn about their livelihood and background, and share all of the juicy details with you.
You’ll get to learn behind-the-scenes stories of cool local traders, gain professional (and sometimes life) advice from people who have been there and done it, and you’ll also get to know a group of local creative entrepreneurs.
This time Sarah’s speaking with the uber-organised brains behind Love Cat D Weddings & Events, Catrina Duthie!
“Have you thought about wedding planning?”, her boyfriend Andrew (now husband) asked. She hadn’t, until now. It played to all of her strengths; her love of organising (I totally get this, love me some organising ~ Sarah), her desire to help people and her soft spot for being part of such a happy occasion.
Cat’s a born and bred islander. Growing up in Mossbank, Shetland meant “complete and utter freedom as a kid. As long as you’re home for your dinner, all was well.” Ah, island life… With two younger sisters, Cat has always been the organised one (or the bossy one as she says); always trying to help her wee sisters “learn faster” at school. Her adventurous streak saw her leave Shetland at 16 and head off to study performing arts at college in Coventry. It was here that her confidence to speak to new people was founded.
