With his stomach full of butterflies and nerves in the car on the way to collect his bride before his fun Brisbane garden wedding, Blake was so relieved when he saw Arianna run out to greet him.
“We decided to drive to the temple (where we were married) together. I remember Ari running out to greet me with a big smile as I arrived at her house; all of my pre – wedding nerves went away and I was excited to start our next big adventure.”
It isn’t always the bride that follows the tradition of “something old, something new…” as we discovered as we chatted to Damien about his outfit for his Camden winery wedding.
“My suit jacket, pants and vest came from YD. My shoes were from my grandfather who had passed away three months before our wedding. Our colour theme was grey, so I wanted to have a charcoal grey suit with a light grey shirt. The groomsmen wore charcoal shirts with light grey pants which also went well with the bridesmaids’ grey dresses with white lace. I also wanted to go with the vintage look and bought suspenders for myself and my groomsmen.”
Now that the ‘stormy weather’ is well and truly upon our winter’s doorstep, we are swooning over the debonair collection of Francesco Maglia men’s umbrellas from Trunk Tailors. Handmade using time-honoured techniques, each umbrella is truly unique – with a decidedly stylish masculine touch. When skies are grey, keep one handy to uphold your sartorial – and even chivalrous – standards!
