Inspired Memories – Villiame

First dance at Trofeo Estate

We loved catching up with Villiame about his favourite memory of his bright winery wedding to Emily; with such a fun celebration, he had trouble naming just one!

“Seeing Emily walk around the corner as she approached the ceremony was special. She was walking hand in hand with her Dad. She was a combination of laughter and tears even before we locked eyes. A moment that I will never forget.”

“I also remember the lead up to the wedding, just spending time with close mates and family. I remember feeling loved by everyone at our reception – which made my wife and I feel like a king and queen throughout the whole day. Seeing both sets of parents too looking so proud and emotional but so excited that we had now started a life together was special. Our first dance too was perfect in my eyes!”

When deciding on what to wear for your wedding, it sometimes takes another’s opinion to help you make the final choice as Michelle remembers in the lead up to her wedding to happy summer wedding to Adam.

“Adam and the groomsmen wore navy Gibson suits with white shirts and black ties. We had a bit of a dilemma with the ties though! Adam must have bought three different ties but wasn’t happy until the day before the wedding when our best man took him shopping.”

My Favourite Pocket Squares Of The Season

You can effortlessly boost a wedding outfit with just one pocket square. Offered in solid, patterned and tipped styles, there are countless pocket squares around for your choosing. Take a look at my favourite pocket squares of the season (in no particular order)!

Gucci Silk Pocket Square This simple yet elegant monochrome pocket square would jazz up any basic monochrome ensemble in an instant. The white option is primarily white with a black trim whilst the black option follows a black base finished with white trim. If you’re wearing a black suit and white shirt, white would be a better alternative to the black – and vice versa!

Saba Flower Print Pocket Square Who said flowers were only for ladies? This gem is delicate and graceful and shows a love for nature and art. Tuck the pocket square into a navy or burgundy (or another colour from the print of the pocket square) blazer for the full effect.

Hermès La Maison des Carrés For those who appreciate attention to detail and history, this pocket square looks interesting and is visually eye catching! It also illustrates how it was created, from the initial inspiration to the point of sale! Best suited to a neutral colour scheme.

Calibre Portsea Pattern The nautical trend is back, and this pocket square is an awesome representative of it. With illustrated sailor symbols, the pocket square is endearing and would add a lot of fun to one’s get-up. Of course, it would only be properly emphasised with red, white and navy shades.

Ralph Lauren Zebra Print Pocket Square Another trend that has been flourishing is the safari trend. Zebras scream safari, so this pocket square is matchless if you’re aiming for that safari-esque look; team it with khakis, greys and beiges. A go-to if you want to give your classic tailored blazer or suit a light-hearted touch!

Declic Small Spots Silk Hanky Go whimsical and stylish with this white pocket square featuring red polka dots. You can’t go wrong with polka dots! Double the red and wear a red tie, shirt or suit to set you apart!
