DESCRIBE HOW YOU BOTH MET & THE MARRIAGE PROPOSAL

Luke and I met dancing on the fields at Meredith Music Festival listening to Paul Kelly. Luke proposed 7 years later on the beach in Manly after a day of swimming, eating fish’n’chips and ice cream.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR WEDDING DAY!

It was a small intimate wedding of 126 guests on a private property in Flinders. The property is an olive grove with an old converted shearing shed. Guests were treated to champagne and canapes followed by a 2 course sit down ‘share’ style dinner followed by roving dessert, cheese and espresso martini’s to get the party started.

DESCRIBE THE STYLE OF YOUR WEDDING

We wanted something very natural and textural that complemented the rustic ‘shearing shed’ we used olive branches from the grove, natives and neutral tones. Gold highlights through our cutlery and décor.

DESCRIBE THE MOMENT YOU FOUND YOUR WEDDING DRESS

I knew walking into the Suzanne Harward showroom that I wasn’t going to leave empty handed, it was absolutely breathtaking and to be honest I couldn’t decide which one I liked the most. I’m also very passionate about supporting Australian Designers, Suzanne Harward has been evolving her collections over the past 42 years! There was no other choice.

WHAT SONG DID YOU CHOOSE FOR YOUR FIRST DANCE, & WHY?

Luke and I are private people so we opted out of the ‘first dance’ we thought we had got away with it until we were forced into a circle and told to do an Irish jig – lucky for us we had the moves!

ANY ADVICE FOR FUTURE COUPLES?

Enjoy every moment… oh and make sure you have a mini-moon and a honeymoon so you get two holidays, trust me you’ll need it.

Care & Alterations

General Care

Ensure you read the care label and cleaning instructions before attempting to clean.

By following the instructions on the care label you will keep your couture gown looking fabulous and at it’s absolute best.

Alterations

Suzanne Harward does not provide an alterations service and this also applies to Suzanne Harward online styles. We recommend you take your pieces to a reputable local tailor. Please contact our Customer Care Team should you require advice regarding alteration services in your area.

Delivery

Your couture gown will be delivered wrapped in acid free tissue paper. Gowns with embellishment will have a protective organza cover placed over the embellished area of the gown. Your gown will arrive carefully packed in to a keepsake heirloom box for safe keeping. This box will be packed inside a shipping box with a Suzanne Harward protective garment bag included in the delivery. To protect your exclusive Suzanne Harward gown we recommend you hang your garment within the protective bag provided.

Dry Cleaning

Each Suzanne Harward gown is individually handcrafted with great care and uses delicate fabric, embroideries, embellishment and lace to convey the same timeless, feminine and ethereal nature that is the Suzanne Harward handwriting. This may lead to variation in finish, colour and fabrication. Please take the utmost care when cleaning and wearing your gown as jewellery, finger nails and harsh detergents can harm delicate fabrics and finishes. Embellishments and fabrics may change in colour with time and wear adding to the charm and individuality of each piece. These are not faults in the production of the garment and are consistent with handmade couture quality. Your gown will arrive protected in acid free tissue paper and an organza cover covering any embellishment. A protective garment bag is provided to ensure the gown remains in impeccable condition. Please hang your gown in the garment bag when you receive your delivery.

If you wish to clean your gown after your special day we recommend you take your gown to a reputable specialist drycleaners experienced in cleaning of delicate couture pieces.
