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.”

Don’t Purchase your Suit “Off-the-Rack”, the Benefits of Ordering Tailored Suits Online australia

Tailored Suits Online

Wearing a suit is an expression of class. Your special day should be one to remember. Taking the time, and care to purchase a quality bespoke tailored suit online at Made With Class Suits is evidence to an individual of refinement.

Don’t tarnish the memory of your special day by hastily purchasing a suit “Off-the-Rack” falling for the hollow promise of convenience.

Selecting a uit that personifies your individual character is a thing of sophistication.

 Tailored Suits Online

Order your tailored suit online with Made With Class Suits and avoid the pitfalls associated within the inaccurate “one size fits all” mantra.

Mass produced suits, found in retail stores, are fabricated with one design concept in mind: to provide a product that caters for the common man.

But, what constitutes the “common man”, and does he really exist?

Most men differ considerably, ranging in variables relating to height, broadness of the shoulders, limb length and thickness. The majority of suits available for purchase at retail outlets worldwide have been fabricated large and baggy in order to cover a larger proportion of the market. A strategy that often results in a situation, where the consumer (that’s you) will require additional tailoring.

Control of choice means you are able to govern the cut, style and fit of your suit. Working with your body’s measurements will ensure you receive a sharp looking outfit that accommodates the unique length, circumferences and widths of your frame.

All too often, teenagers around the world are seen tragically parading in their ‘Off-the-Rack’ ready to wear suits: resembling a child dressed in his daddy’s work shirt and oversized leather shoes; “Look at me, I’m a big boy!”

Close your eyes and imagine that it is now Oscar night. Imagine movie stars like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Tom Hardy and Ryan Gosling: Straight-up lady-killers. Think now about a time where each of these men had been dressed in the baggy, loose fitting suits on their march down the red carpet. You can’t can you? I’m not surprised.

The difference in image expressed by the tragic teen to that of Ryan Gosling and company comes down to one all important factor: the care and time taken to do things right.

The perfect custom suit experience allows the consumer to personalise all facets of the outfit; paying attention to details beginning at fabric selection all the way down to the accompanying buttons, will provide you with a suit that you will want to, and will, wear again and again.

The delayed regret experienced as a result from Off-the-Rack purchases is all too real. Far too often will a man’s wardrobes transform into elephant graveyard for these fashion disasters: worn once, then inevitably put down.

A suit should not be regarded as a disposable item; the right suit will personify class and class is something you will carry for life.

Made With Class Suits consider your requirements as a distinguished individual and are experts in meeting your needs when searching for custom made suits online in Australia.
