I still remember the feeling when I first walked into Castalia. A humble shop located amongst all the other boutiques.. The warmth and friendliness.. I guess I can never find it in Singapore, that's the reason why I choose to make a trip to JB and even entrust them to such important role of my milestone.

Special mention to Catherine, for being always so helpful and patient. Thank you for coming down early and help me out during my photo shoot! Thank you for all that u have done! I really appreciate it!

Next the man behind all the beautiful pictures, Jay! Thank you for making the photo shoot sessions a fun and enjoyable one. Thank you for sacrificing yourself , lying down on the road under the scorching hot sun just to take the perfect shot! Thank you for always thinking out of the box to make our shots look special! Thank you for taking in our ideas and giving us many advices!

Next is Devan! Ok I don't know how to spell his name but he is the man behind all my neat dresses. And all the flying dresses. Thank you for being so very conscientious about all the little details of my gowns and never complain a bit! Thank you so much !!

JOEY! She is the one who always bring happiness to my hubby and I. Thank you for always going the extra mile for us and giving us whatever u can. We really appreciate all that u have done!

Eva, is the makeup artist for my shoot! She is very confident of her work and she pays attention to every little details be it our face or our hair.

To every single one at Castalia, as our pre-wedding journey is coming to an end soon, I know Shawn and I will start missing every memories we had at Castalia. All the laughters were a great part of our wedding. To many more laughters at Castalia and to many more nice customers!

 

I will miss all of u, I guess Shawn will too! Thank you all for creating a new friendship! ❤❤❤❤

Castalia staff are very amazing! Our very first day, JC assisted me in trying the gowns, she is very patience & helpful. I couldn't decide quite a number of gowns but she was willing to let me try the gown again & again until I am satisfied. Today's photo shoot, our MUA, Eva skillfully did our Makeup like Korean style wedding. And even though she is just a MUA, she would check on us at every studios & ensures our hair are in place, she even ask if I am happy with my hairstyles and makeup and if I am not satisfy she will redo it :)We had Yen as our photographer, he is so professional, he knows which angle to take and cracked up some jokes to soften our cramped smile. The best thing is he showed us most of the photos in DSLR each time we ended our session, it's amazing even just before the editing.. can you imagine? Dyven, the photographer assistant, he is very helpful and humble. He does every small little details like lighting, deco and skirt adjustment. He's like a butler and practically running the whole day even to get our breakfast, lunch, hp and even mirror. Once again, thank you everyone and we really appreciated it .

相信大家都和我一样,签配套之前会担心很多很多。但Castalia Wedding绝对让你放心! 当时我还记得第一次去他们的婚纱店是他们租车从新加坡载我们去到他们家的店,因为那天是做Seminar,当然当天的感觉很不同因为他们介绍他们的拍法,你可以有自己故事的婚纱照,你也可以有自己的想拍摄的手法,你想有独一无二属于自己DIY的婚纱照,这家肯定不会错!

重要的是,这里的员工都不会强逼你签任何配套!所以你真的不需要担心,而且他们会让你试穿他们家的婚纱,而且会跟着你的身形拿适合的给你,解释给你知道怎样的婚纱是适合你的。这点非常满意,因为没几家会让你这样试的吧??重点,他们都不会摆臭脸的,非常有耐心。这里先谢谢Catherine和Joey。 另一点不错的是配套是flexible 的,你可能不要这,不要那,他们都会做到满意的配套给你,当然也是要reasonable 的啦。

相信大家都很忙,有时你真的会因为工作,或者真的病了而无法拍婚纱照或者和他们的任何预约。但我非常肯定的是他们肯定不会说因为你要换日期而加任何钱!他们反而是关心你,而且尽量帮你换去你们可以的日期,这点我非常感激。因为准备婚礼又加上忙碌的做工生活会觉得很烦很压力,但他们真的是真心帮忙的,而不会责怪你为什么一直换日期!!由于我婆婆病倒了,Joey 真的帮了我一个很大的忙,我非常感激。。。

拍婚纱照当天,由于非常塞车,我们迟到了,但化妆师没怪我们迟到。化妆师们非常专业,因为我是超级单眼皮,搞了很久,最终把双眼皮撑起来了,非常自然,而且要求是发型都做得很棒!! 谢谢Minna和Eva!! 单眼皮女生,这家你不需要担心!!!一定有办法变大眼妹!!

我们的摄影师是Jay,他看起来你可能真的会担心他有没有经验啊? 因为他非常年轻!但拍照手法真的很棒而且很专业!他可以为了拍好的角度,在外景爬在地上等等。他们两位助手们也很棒,会教你眼睛看哪里,怎么摆pose,打灯.他们的团队很棒,你不需要担心你不会摆pose 还是怎么笑,怎么看。他们都会教的!!!谢谢你们3位哦!

这家是一家很舒服的婚纱店,不会hard sell, 不会收了钱后得到烂的对待,不会有任何隐藏收费,他们都是真心对待每一个顾客。

 

真的非常感谢Castalia Wedding的每一位员工。

Castalia Bridal definitely deserved a 5-star review! A year ago (last day of 2015), we went around aimlessly with no research, but just with an intention to hear what the bridal shops can offer as a starting reference. We selected Castalia with no second doubt and have no regrets. I was attracted by the Korean-inspired bridal gowns on the mannequin. The whole process was a breeze with kind and friendly services from the staff at Castalia, who treated us like friends.

We were firstly served by Helen who explained the packages. Along the way, I'm glad to have JC and Catherine who are very patient and helpful in helping me to pick the gown that I want. Be it for photo shoot or the actual day. I appreciated their assistance as I'm torn apart to choose my preferred gown as all the gowns are very beautiful!

Eva, the makeup artist is skillful and you will be assured that you are well taken care throughout your photo shoot. Our photographer, Peter, is funny and keeping us relax while he captured every pose with a click! That's pro! Not forgetting the assistants at the photo shoot, Jay and Dyven, who helped to remove the dead leaves and holding the flash and the props for us. They were friendly and we felt safe in their hands throughout the photo shoot journey.

Special mention to Joey who gave us her valuable suggestions and super attentive to fine-tune our photos.

We are blessed to have selected Castalia Wedding Gallery for creating memories for our lifetime event. Once again, thank you all so much for the service you rendered and making our wedding a special one.

Castalia Wedding amazed both my husband and I with their customer service. They never fail and tries their best to fit up your requirements. One thing that impressed me was that their photographer, Peter, actually went all out laying flat on the near muddy ground for our outdoor photo shoot. Their gowns were as good as new too! Thanks to our photographer, Peter with the help of Dyven, as well as Catherine and JC, my photo shoot MUA, Eva and most importantly, Joey. You definitely have the right pool of employees! We had lots of compliments on our photo shoot from our guests!! Thank you!!

I did my fair share of research before engaging Castalia Wedding as my bridal studio. Indeed, the good reviews that I've gathered works the same way for me. I really enjoy my entire wedding journey with Castalia!

I had Yen as my pre-wedding photographer. He really captured the best moments for us. His professionalism, the way he calmed us down when we were overly nervous for the shoot, the way he entertained us with jokes, how he input our ideas into the shoot.. Thanks for everything!

Eva was my MUA for both the indoor and outdoor shoot! I have admit I have lousy skin but she covered my flaws really well! Thank you Eva!

Joey who helped with the album layout, Catherine who was always so patient with me during gown fitting, JC who helped with my photos, Helen and many more whom I have contact with!

Castalia treated us like their own and we often visit them for a chit chat session! They know us best! Haha!

Keep up the great work Castalia! Will definitely introduce your services to anyone who's getting married! :)

I have to say a great thanks to Castalia service team. They are the most approachable and helpful people we engaged:) was not pushy or hard-selling. special thanks to JC, Catherine, Helen & Joey, who are very accommodating and helped us to fulfill our requests. The sales team are also not pushy and guided us to make decisions based on our needs and what we don't require. The team are also very patient to allow me to try as many gowns as I want until I found the ones I love.

Peter was our photographer and we were amazed by his works. Peter is patient and humorous, he understands that it gets tiring as the photo shoot progressed and always tries to lighten the mood. He is also professional to recommend poses for us, especially when we didn't do any research prior to the photo shoot. Despite being sick on the photo shoot day, Peter still managed to capture many great photos and remained professional and jovial. We had a hard time selecting the photos as there are too many good ones! Thank you Peter! His two assistants, Dyven and Jay are also very meticulous and detail-oriented, helping us with arrangement of gowns etc.

Lastly, I have nothing but praises for my MUAs. Minna was my MUA for the photo shoot and also on AD. She was very detail-oriented and beautified me on both occasions. Was totally awed by her skills and professionalism. I'm one with no idea of what I want and fully let Minna made decisions on my makeup and hairdos. Both husband and I were very satisfied with the results. Minna was also able to do different amazing looks. Everyone was praising my looks on AD. Gina, who was my MUA for my Kluang lunch wedding also surprised me with her skills. She totally enhanced my features and the hairdo was beautifully done. Was also complemented for my makeup and hairdo for the day :)  Tq Minna and Gina!

Would definitely recommend Castalia to all BTBs!

对每一对新人来说,选对婚纱店是很重要的~尤其是对女人来说,选对婚纱和化妆师就想选对老公一样的重要。。。因为如果婚纱不是你想要的,化妆师把你画的不好看,服务不好,那你就没有办法好好的享受整个拍照的过程,那一切都毁了。。。很庆幸 Castalia 让我们在整个过程中超享受的。。。

在Castalia,让我明白了很多。。。个人原本很喜欢很华丽很夸张的婚纱,但其实每个女人最需要的不是把自己变成婚纱的陪衬品,而自己就是主角,应该让自己衬托出婚纱穿在自己身上的气质。。。这是Castalia让我明白一个很重要的点。。。真心感谢Castalia全体工作人员的用心,细心,热心与真心。。。

谢谢Joey,给了我们很多意见参考,当中也帮了我们不少,给了很多意见。。。她绝对不会hard sale你什么,而最主要是看你需要些什么,尽可能的为你做到你理想中想要的感觉与需求。。。让你从里到外完全了解很多重要的细节比如相本的质感,设计的重要,花车的配搭等等!超棒的主管!

搞笑的摄影组:Peter,Jay,Dyven,让我们拍照过程一点都不闷,而且很快的可以进入状况,拍出最自然的你和你理想中的感觉。。。

谢谢JC和 Catherine,从谈话中慢慢了解我,并为我找出适合我的婚纱。。。不时提醒我这个健忘的人,该注意些什么,还有接下来的时间表等等。。。细心又温柔的Catherine总是让你放心;注重客户感受的JC总是让你觉得完全没被忽略。。。

当然少不了Eva,最棒的化妆师,每一个妆容与发型都让我很满意!无微不至的贴身照顾,不时帮你调整婚纱,补妆,嘘寒问暖的,超贴心!还会帮我老公搭配衣服、发型等等。。。超赞的~

谢谢 Castalia Wedding。。。=)

I was introduced to Castalia by my friend and I totally understand why she introduce me there. The staffs at Castalia are really very friendly and they really go all out to help you.

We signed the package with Helen. She is very patience and very friendly.. explaining everything in the packages and chitchating with us.

Catherine helps me with all the gown fitting and selection.. she is very patience as I tried quite a number of them for both the pre-wedding shoot and actual outfit. She always introduces the prettiest gown available. And best of all.. they know what i likes without me having to say it out.

Yen was my photographer for my pre-wedding shoot. He is very professional and throughout the 2 days photo shoot, there was always laugther. He guides you on how the position of your body parts to make the pictures nice. And during our outdoor shoot, although it was very late but he was still willing to accommodate with us for the last few shots. And also many thanks to his assistant for the 2 days shoot. Very friendly and really very helpful towards us.

Eva was my MUA for both days and she really take pride in her work and really up to perfection when she is doing make up. Thank you for making me beautiful!

我们一直觉得婚纱照就是穿着婚纱礼服,拍得美美的留着纪念。直到去了Castalia,才忽然间被开窍了,原来婚纱照可以拍出独一无二,拍出我们自己的故事!好兴奋!这是Castalia与其他婚纱店的不同,也是为什么我们毫不犹疑选了Castalia的原因。

说到服务素质嘛, 不知不觉就和他们做了朋友, 比如说Catherine啊、Joey啊、Helen啊、Wing啊、Janice啊、Jay啊、Dyven啊、Eva啊。能有朋友的感觉, 就自己想象吧...

不过, 重点还是有的, 那就是我们的负责人 Catherine。初次见面, 就觉得她很诚恳, 有耐心, 配套都解释地很清楚。顾客的要求都认真仔细地听。相处下来觉得她很真诚,一点也不”假”,觉得她会站在我们的角度设想。选婚纱也很拿手, 只要你让她知道你要什么, 她就能报上适合你的婚纱号码 (好像报万字,哈哈)。她也蛮搞笑, 和她闲聊也很不错, 看她和 Joey 争最美头衔就已经很精彩。还有, 练就 "碎碎念" 神功, 几次想帮忙买咖啡都不成功, 上厕所笑说要收钱, 沉醉在给自己的好评中等等, 详细的内容就属于我们和整个 Castalia 团队的美好回忆了。每次去Castalia都跟他们聊得很开心。

我们还要给摄影师Jay和助理Dyven三个赞!他们风趣幽默,拍照过程很开心,这个对我们很重要,我们不仅仅想要漂亮的照片,更希望有美美的回忆。特别一提出外景拍照时我不舒服,他们东奔西跑帮我找饮料,一点不耐烦都没有!我是真感动的要哭了!!

最后,我们在这里想颁发几个奖项:

最亲切奖:Catherine 最酷奖:Jay 最细心奖:Dyven 最佳口才奖:非Joey莫属了最美丽奖:(Joey, Catherine 你们慢慢争吧,哈哈)

谢谢Castalia团队! 也谢谢我自己网上做功课选了Castalia :)

Wide selections of gowns and all the gowns are so new looking! Even my MUA was surprised that my gowns was selected off the rack.  Staffs are nice especially JC. She is very observant and easily pulled out a few gowns which is right what I wanted!

MUA Eva make-up was also very well done! Just a few questions and she know that kind of style I like...  Our Photographer (forgot his name, a young guy though) was also very experienced and talented, giving us the magazine style photos that we wanted.  Will definitely highly recommend to my friends!!!

Last year, it was through random window shopping at the bride street. We visited a few but couldn't find anything nice till we walked into Castalia.

Wearing a beautiful wedding gown for the big day is every woman's dream. The gowns there are modern and stylish, and most importantly, clean!

We took the wedding photo shoot package and were really happy when we saw our photos that it was difficult to decide which to include in the wedding album.

After all, we wanted something to last and reflect back on for the good memories. Trust us, you will be so willing to spend when see your wedding photos!

I will definitely recommend to my friends! Cheers and thank you!

I was browsing for a bridal in JB and found Castalia. It seemed that they have a very good reviews and they live up to their name. Their gown selection is quite limited in my opinion, however, the staff did help me to choose the gowns that are close to my liking. I was helped by Catherine, she is very dutiful & patient, she even introduced us a nice and affordable hotel to stay during the photo shoot.

 The photo session wasn't that tiring for me, as the photographer & assistant (Jay & Alex) are friendly and very accommodating to our needs. They were doing their best to meet our request during the photo shoot and remember to every tiny detail we mentioned before.

 Last but not least, I wanna thanks Minna, my MUA that gives me various kind of style, from a classy chic, timeless woman to sweet Korean bride look. I was kinda worried at first that their makeup style might be too light for my liking, as I am a makeup person, but she managed to create the look that i wasn't even think of, and I'm very pleased! We even shared a lot of makeup related info and tips!

 Thank you Castalia, All of the staffs are very dedicated to their job! It was a fun experience for us and we look forward to select our pictures on this Aug!

We did our indoor and outdoor photo shoot with Castalia and their services were amazing.

From the day we stepped into their place with just the intention of looking around they have showed impeccable service and dedication to their job. They allowed us to try on their gowns and have an overall feel before even deciding to sign for their package.

Throughout the planning to the photo shoot, they showed great professionalism from the assistants, MUA, and every single one of them. Extremely satisfied with their service and of course the end product of the pictures that were taken.

Have recommended to my other friends because they were worth recommending!

Dear all,

I just completed my recent PWS shoot with Castalia. Now waiting for the pictures to be edited lol... So far, we had a very good experience with Castalia! :D  Photographer: Jay Photography assistant: Dyven MUA: Eva Coordinator: JC, Catherine

Both JC n Catherine were very patient in letting me to try the gowns for the PWS...which I really appreciated. Coz sometimes especially for brides, you will find it very difficult to choose between gowns. They did not rush u to choose. Instead they give you time to think about which gowns to choose :)

Our photographer Jay was very young but skilful! Haha but don't be deceived by his young look! He is very friendly n approachable. So when we discuss with him our requirements for the PWS, he was willing to give us useful advice. He is also patient in hearing our comments/requirements. Most importantly, during the photo shoot, he really guided us very well on how to pose, smile. We had a special requirement which was to take pictures with cats at the cat cafe in JB. Yen (another lead photographer) also joined us. It was indeed a difficult challenge to take with the cats as they are all running around. So both photographers are very patient and skilful to help us take the pictures. I really appreciate their efforts! :D I'm so happy to b able to take with the cats at the cat cafe, since I'm a cat lover :D

I'm looking forward to the pictures in late April! I definitely believe they are very well taken! :p

Our photography assistant, Dyven was very hardworking to carry our belonging and camera stuff around. It was no easy task to carry up and down. Thank u! Occasionally, he also tried to joke with us to make us feel relaxed so as to smile more naturally. :)

My MUA - Eva was superb! She was able to transform my pale looking face into something amazing. Her makeup skills really good and I also love her hairstyling! :)

Thank u all!
