David & Tenielle



Location: Melbourne, Victoria


Date: December, 2018


I have known Tenielle for close to twenty years, so when her fiancé, David, contacted me about making his wedding suit, I was over the moon.  I love dressing grooms on the most special day of their lives, I couldn’t have been happier than to work with David for his big day.  We tried to keep it a complete surprise from Tenielle, but somehow the cat got out of the bag.  However, I’m pretty sure her jaw dropped when she first laid eyes on her new husband standing in front of their friends and families.


David was adamant he wanted to wear a white dinner jacket and black trouser for the formal event. So we went with an off white pure wool cloth finished with ivory satin on the lapel and pocket trims.  The shades we went with complimented beautifully with Tenielle’s ivory gown, which was made by Sydney based designer, Rachel Gilbert.  David also opted for a custom made dinner shirt with black dress studs and a hand made bow tie, all by yours truly.


David was flanked by his two best mates, who were also in made to measure black tuxedos with notch lapels. But there was no denying that David stood out!  The garden wedding held at private home was an elegant and intimate affair exuding in style, thanks to this very sharp couple!


A big congratulations and thank you for allowing me to contribute on your special day !
