Clare first met Newcastle Knight’s first grader Mitch in year 7 at Wingham High School through mutual friends. They made it official in year 10 and were married on the 3rd November 2018.
The loved-up pair chose to hold their ceremony at Pilot Hill, Harrington and their reception at Harrington Waters Golf Club, not far from where the couple grew up. With many holidays spent in the area and being where Mitch proposed, it was a meaningful location for them both.
The laid-back vibe and coastal attractions were also big draw cards, with the couple choosing a tropical theme for the ceremony and decorating the reception with real pineapples and candles.
Celebrating with 120 of their closest friends and family, everyone mingled and danced the night away to a cocktail style wedding reception, with Clare and Mitch choosing Perfect by Ed Sheeran (sung by their musician) for their bridal waltz.
For Clare, dancing with Mitch and being surrounded by the happy faces of their dearest friends and family was one of her favourite memories of the day and Mitch couldn’t go past seeing Clare walk down the aisle for the first time and enjoying the company of friends and family.
Mitch and his groomsmen wore: New England code char suits, Brooksfield Ivory shirts, Ensign Ivory ties and pocket squares and Florshiem Dalton black shoes.
Mitch and Clare were both very happy with their Rundle Tailoring experience.
“Mitch went to Rundles to put some ideas together. He came home and said: “ok I’ve picked my wedding suit, but I just want you to approve it.”
“I went in to Rundles and fell in love with what Mitch and the Rundle team had chosen. They explained the process so well and we were kept informed throughout.
“We will definitely chose Rundles for any formal events in the future,” Clare says.
Rundle Tailoring Tip: As official tailor of the Newcastle Knights we were proud to dress Mitch and his groomsmen for his wedding. When your wedding party includes a varied range of body shapes make sure you choose to be fitted by experienced professional so each groomsman’s wedding outfit is tailored to fit his shape.
