What colour suit should you wear on your wedding day if you don't want to wear traditional black? For most people, it’s a toss up between a solid charcoal and a solid navy suit. Strong arguments can be made for each suit, these colours are both incredibly versatile and also convey confidence, loyalty and strength.

When you’re looking to dress the suit up for an important event, simply add a crisp white button down, a bold tie, and a black belt. For a more casual look, switch out the white shirt for a bold check and pair it with a canvas belt and open collar. Whether you are wearing a bold pattern, a heavy texture, or a basic solid, either charcoal or navy will keep you looking dapper every step of the way.

For a specialised suiting consultation please call our Menswear Department on (03) 9380 4044.

RC - How did you meet Niall?
Ahhhh, in the depths of a Friday night 4 and a bit years ago we had both been out (separately) with friends - we were literally standing there holding our drinks and got chatting. I had every intention of giving a false phone number but I never did .... the rest, they say is history!


RC - How did Niall propose?
Perfect for us. I had been at much needed hair appoinment earlier in the day and when I got home Niall suggested we "take my hair out"
Meanwhile he was armed with the good food guide and mentioned I should take a look at his efforts tidying our balcony garden that day - (he will die that I mention this!) As I was mid change for dinner, I came out with a pair of jeans in my hands to check out this "handy work" he spoke of. To this day, the most memorable and funny part to the whole proposal was this one line "maybe you might like to put some pants on...."
Needless to say I had the most beautiful bunch of red roses, bottle of Champagne and Tiffany blue box (A place saver until we picked out my actual ring) waiting for me on the spotless balcony! It was just perfect.
He had been an utter gentleman and asked Dad, My Mum and My Stepdad for their permission. I am still surprised all 3 of them could keep such a secret!
(Dinner ended up being a casual walk down the street to a local restaurant - just the two of us and filled with many excited phone calls!)

RC - Is there a particular reason as to why you chose your venue?
We didn't want a particularly long engagement so it looked like a winter wedding would be our destiny. We married at the same Church my mother and my nana married in, followed by a black tie dinner for close friends and family. Because it was going to be a June wedding The Residence at the Grand Hyatt was perfect. We had a magical glassed in courtyard with trees and fairly lights leading into a stunning dining room that felt like an intimate dinner party. I do love planning a party so there was a specific vision with many little personal touches. The Hyatt helped make so many of our ideas reality so it really was everything we dreamed of and so much more.



RC - Your favourite part of the wedding?
Tough question. The whole day (despite rain) was amazing. Having all our nearest and dearest in one room with us for one night was incredible. It was magical to see everyone so beautifully dressed and ready to party in our honour. There really is nothing like it. Also, sharing it with my 3 beautiful bridesmaids and my Mum. We are all so close and it was a really collaborate effort from start to finish between 4 inspirational women who have always been by my side.
