Kim and Joel didn’t let rain ruin their big day.

Kim & Joel

The golden sunsets of the wide open land are enough to entice me to fall in love with a country wedding, but when it’s a beautiful modern Australian farm wedding like Kim and Joel’s complete with the memory of a sudden downpour, dancing in the farmhouse garden and dining under sparkling lights – it’s sure to be one best enjoyed over a cup of tea! Emma Nayler was there to capture it all.

On how they met, Kim tells, “We met through mutual friends years ago and started seeing each other 8 years ago.”

The bride chose her gown from The Babushka Ballerina , noting, “It was a two piece dress from the Babushka Ballerina, I selected it because it reflected my style, was timeless (hopefully!), and I felt comfortable in it. I wanted something that suited my usual style (for example I never wear strapless clothes, so didn’t want a strapless dress!). I had a great experience with dress hunting, but the decision was hard and in the end I just went with the dress that I felt myself in and that I would be most happy to still look back at in 20 years.”

The bride’s family farm hosted the wedding, Kim explaining, “We had the Ceremony and the Reception in my parent’s garden at “Hayfields”, my family property near Dalby, Queensland. We didn’t have it in a marquee or anything and it was all open air in the garden which was perfect for the casual and fun atmosphere we were aiming for. The garden was absolutely perfect and my parents put an incredible amount of work in to it in the year leading up.”

Kay Graham officiated the ceremony, which included a surprise downpour! “We aimed for a casual and simple ceremony. It was in a separate part of the garden and included a mix of vintage chairs. We also used a vintage side table to sign our marriage certificates on which used to be my grandparent’s table. We wanted to keep it very pared back so the garden could shine through. We had a downpour of rain in the middle of the ceremony which made it a memorable experience, but the sun came out just in time for us to sign our certificates.”

“We loved having it at our family farm, our amazing bridal party, all of our friends and family who came together and put in an incredible amount of work, the fun and relaxed atmosphere, and the fact that everything about it reflected exactly who we are.”

Of their photographer, Kim notes, “Our photographer was fantastic. She was so easy to deal with the entire planning process and was a dream to work with on the day. She made the photographing experience so casual, relaxed and fun and was even kind enough to lend me her boots so I could trudge through the mud in the paddock while getting photos. I think the quality of her work does all the talking, though. She captured every little element perfectly and her photos reflect exactly how the day was.”

MYTHS ABOUT Tailored Suits on the gold coast

Most men we’ve had the pleasure of meeting have said that owning a tailored made suit always seemed out of their reach. They thought that bespoke suits would be out of their budget and simply a fantasy for those who could afford it. Well that may be true, depending on where you’re looking. However there are a lot of myths out there when it comes to tailored suits, and there are plenty of good practical reasons why you should consider making your next suit purchase a custom one.

 Tailored Suits on the gold coast

Myth: Getting tailored is time consuming.
Some people think that finding a tailor is costly and inconvenient, however Made With Class we is anything but. Our price range is affordable and our process is easy. We meet with people on a daily basis who’ve searched through countless stores hoping to find their dream suit that they’ve long envisioned only to settle for something different because they were running out of time and/or money.

At Made With Class Suits we make your suit exactly how you want it. We’re able to take your body measurements and alter them depending on what style and cut of suit you want. Due to the fact that we make your suits from scratch, we can ask you all the right questions to ensure your suit will be one of preference.

• Do you want your suit to be classic, slim or super slim fit?
• Do you want your trousers to be cuffed, un-cuffed and have a tapered finish?
• How many buttons on your cuffs, and what colour do you want them to be?
• What type of lapel do you want and would you prefer it to be thick or thin?

There are so many options, and we can go through them all during our appointment. Our point is, why look around through a bazillion stores for something that you may not find when you can do it all at once for a fraction of the time and effort.


Myth: Off the rack suits are the same quality as a bespoke suit.
This is a common misconception. We’re not saying that all ‘off the rack’ suits are bad quality, but there is definitely a difference in the level of class between the two. Off the rack suits are made according to generic sizes and processed quickly through machines on an assembly line. Even the expensive suits that you find from reputable stores were spat out by machine to fit the ‘average body type’. If you purchase a suit through Made With Class, you’re guaranteed that your garment will be overseen by a real person from our Made With Class team. We’re accountable for every feature of your suit because every detail has been specifically chosen by the customer, therefore the attention-to-detail and quality simply cannot be compared to off the rack garments.

In addition, don’t forget that when you get a suit tailored through us you have the option of things like canvas. What’s canvas? Typically it’s a separate layer of cotton and horsehair that runs throughout the important structural areas of our suit. In essence, the canvas acts as the “bones” of your garment and will increase the longevity of your suit, especially if you’re one who will take it to the dry cleaners on a regular basis. Having your suit semi or fully canvased will improve both shape and strength, as well as mold the suit to your body. Some people will opt to have their suits fused because they’re the more affordable alternative, however isn’t it nice to have the option?



Myth: Tailor-made suits are too expensive.
Let’s be completely honest, there should be no tailor made options out there available that are cheaper than the lowest off-the-rack prices you can find. If there is than there’s something fishy going on. There’s a reason big businesses use assembly lines, and a small business like us who has decided to personalise
every suit can’t be expected to compete against those prices. However keep in mind, bespoke suits become quite affordable when you start to look at the big picture.First off, as mentioned earlier your time is valuable.tima and money

If you buy through us the chances are good that you’ll save a lot of time over trying to find an off-the-rack suit that works. Secondly, a tailored suit will last longer and is the best option for those who plan on wearing their suits on a regular basis. This will mean that you will replace them less. Many of our customers contact us hoping that we can replicate the look and style of the more popular and expensive brands. This is something that we can do with relative ease, and we do it for a fraction of the price.
