STORY

Before jumping, headset-first, into the world of event production, Kate O’Dowd was the creator and editor of BASH Magazine, the wedding title by IMAGE Publications, which won Magazine of the Year, during its first year on shelves.

BASH approached weddings in a manner not often seen in its genre, focusing on original beauty and human experience. This is a philosophy that Kate carries through to each of her love & gatherings events.
