jemma keech sl 0076 Inspired Memories Luke

We love a romantic memory from a Groom, and after his  Stylish Summer Wedding to the gorgeous Sarah, Luke shared this very special moment with us.

“Might be a touch cheesy, but our priest, Father Oscar, encouraged my most memorable moment of the night. He filled the void of a late Bride (did she mention that?) with some light chit-chat in front of our gathered family and friends and, when it came to business time and prior to me turning around to face my beautiful Bride entering the church, he said ‘Luke, I want you to turn around and remember this moment for the rest of your life’. And as I turned around, although the man inside me tells me not to admit it, that moment brought a tear of happiness to my eye. This is something that I will always remember and cherish. ”

Founder Murray Crane remarks “Men should look for he three F words: fit, fabric and finish when buying a suit. Fit should be for the wearer taking into consideration build, posture and height. The shirt cuff should be showing on the wrist but sleeves should be long enough to sit comfortably on the hand. Look for good quality Italian or English mills when settling on a fabric. All of our suits are hand finished with hand stitch details and fabric is all important.”
