Will & Rachelle


Location: Melbourne

Date: February, 2018


I’ve been making Will’s business suits for quite a few years now, and each time we sit down to discuss his new ‘made to measure project’ I know his final selection will be far from boring.  It’s been quite the evolution, and I must admit I am quite proud of Will’s choices, he loves to experiment with colour and pattern.  A tailor’s dream really. So when Will called me about making his Wedding suit, I couldn’t wait to see where this would go.


Upon our first consultation for the wedding brief, Rachelle, Will and I sat around the table and they proceeded to tell me about their vision for their wedding.  The reception was to be held in an old Masonic hall in Camberwell, with its decor completely intact since the 1930’s.  The art deco setting really set the theme for their intimate affair, but Will was very much inspired by an old David Bowie photo from the late 1980’s, which was probably more reminiscent of the 1930’s also.  I loved this particular photo of Bowie.  He looked so chic, yet so relaxed.  I loved the tones, and instantly presented will with a variety of cream, ivory and off white swatches.  As it would turn out, both Rachelle and Will wore shades of cream in both silk and pure wool which complimented perfectly.


Will accessorised with a crisp made to measure shirt in white, also made by yours truly, and a beautiful Orange 3-fold silk tie from one of my Italian suppliers. This was set off by a stunning pair of tan brogues that will purchased from my good friends at 124 Shoes in Melbourne.


Rachelle on the hand looked simply stunning in a silk dress designed by herself and made by Will’s sister.  Their wedding was the epitome of style with elegance, fun and lots of frivolity.


Congratulations to the happy couple, and thank you for allowing me to contribute to your special day!
