Royal wedding fever is in full-swing! With all eyes on what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be wearing on their big day, we take you behind the scenes of professional footballer Chris Porter and Cheryl Cunningham’s own fairytale wedding.

The pair jetted off to the South of France to hold their wedding ceremony in a grand Gothic cathedral followed by the reception at a majestic Chateau.

The groom opted for a Scottish plaid theme to his attire with a traditional tartan bow tie. Chris wanted to take the theme even further by complementing his bespoke waistcoat and jacket with the accessories!

However, the tartan fabric was too thick to use as a lining to the garments. The solution? I created an exact copy of the tartan and printed it onto a lightweight fabric that was used to line the waistcoat and suit jacket.

The cufflinks were also handmade in the lining fabric and then customised even further with the Groom and usher’s initials embroidered on.

The suit itself was an elegant double breasted shawl lapel jacket with scoop neck waistcoat. A contemporary yet timeless style that will allow our dashing groom the option to wear this beautifully bespoke suit for more than one special occasion!

Bespoke Wedding Suits

Your wedding gives you the perfect excuse to indulge in a bespoke suit that will ensure you look and feel the part on your big day.

My design studio offers a personalised service that allows unique and memorable details such as a custom printed lining, that could match the colour of the flowers, your partner’s favourite colour or even design elements taken from your invitation.

Colour can also be used in contrast stitching, flash inserts or buttons to make it stand out from a typical suit; whilst having the date embroidered on your garment means you will never forget your anniversary!

Alternatively, why not embroider your names or a message inside the jacket. I once had a client ask me to embroider the statement ‘I give it a year’!

The variations are endless and a more contemporary cut and fabric can be perfect for the big day, and guarantee you will be able to wear it again and again.

The whole process of having a garment designed should be part of the celebration, an experience to treasure and enjoy as you indulge in the luxury world of bespoke suiting.

A trend I’ve noticed over the past 12 months is the increased number of men opting for a white, ecru or ivory dinner jacket, as seen most recently on the 2017 Golden Globes red carpet worn by Ryan Gosling.

Paired with black dinner trousers, white evening shirt, and bow tie; this bold look, if executed correctly, is guaranteed to create the wow factor!

Humphrey Bogart sported this iconic look in the classic 1942 movie Casablanca, as have numerous James Bond’s and other leading men throughout the years.

I recommend a Super 120s merino wool, cashmere, or mohair cloth with a shawl collar and covered buttons. A flared or cut-away cuff and subtle printed lining with matching pocket square will add the element of personalised perfection.

Grooms, it’s time to make a statement!

Grooms, it’s time to make a statement!

Your wedding day is one of the key moments in any couples relationship, and in days of old it was primarily all about the bride’s dress but times have changed in so many ways and statements are being made by the groom or grooms.

For some it can be the only time when the gent’s suit is not off the peg and it’s the perfect excuse to splash out and indulge in a one off piece, which, unlike a traditional wedding dress a bespoke wedding suit can be used time and time again.

Obviously you are more limited in alternative occasions to wear the traditional morning suit but a more contemporary garment in the right colour & style is timeless.

What I aim to do is ensure that any special details from the day are incorporated in the suit and any specific request from the bride or groom is included. Whether that be the colour of a lining that matches to the flowers or bridesmaids dress, your partners favourite colour or even picks up on the design of the invite.

Colour can also be used in contrast stitching, flash inserts or even buttons to make it stand out from a more typical work suit. Having the date embroidered on your garment means you will never forget your anniversary. I was even once asked to embroider “I give it a year!”.

The variations are endless and a more contemporary fabric can be perfect for the big day and also for work or weekends after. Jeans and a jacket are a classic look and the waistcoat from the suit can be worn with a blazer or another suit to keep the memory of the big day alive.

The whole process of having something designed should be part of the celebration, an experience to treasure and enjoy as you indulge in the luxury world of bespoke suiting. You can’t put a price on love.
