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!

On Monday 18th September we partnered with China Tang at the Dorchester to host an exclusive VIP event alongside leading fragrance brand Roja Parfums.
Male models wearing my latest bespoke creations welcomed guests including our campaign star Thom Evans, and brother Max Evans (both wearing Stephen Williams London) as they enjoyed cocktails inspired by Roja’s newest fragrance and dim sum in the chic 1930s art deco setting of Mayfair’s China Tang.
Key new designs include a grey polka dot two-piece, the angel oyster printed shawl lapel blazer, blue camouflage jacket, and green tartan suit. Also launched at the event was my new range of shoes in collaboration with Spanish shoe designer Roque Vicente!

I had the honor of dressing Ray Davies, lead singer of legendary 1960s rock band The Kinks, for his performance at The BBC Proms Hyde Park – ‘the world’s greatest classical music festival’.
As the lead singer of one of the most important and influential rock bands of the ’60s, I saw it only fitting to dress Ray in a paisley print cotton dinner jacket with a satin lapel and skull lining.
This was accessorised with a V ‘Marilyn’ edition black micro sequin tie – a collaboration between myself and The TieGa by Atelier Louise Austin available by appointment at the Stephen Williams London studio.

London Lux magazine recently invited me to sit down with its features writer to discuss my industry background, inspiration, and forthcoming AW17 collection.
There’s a very easy way of sprucing up your summer wardrobe and that’s by investing in a bespoke jacket in a lightweight or cool wool fabric. Wear it with jeans, a tee, shorts and sandals or with shirt and tie. There are so many ways to get the most out of it to create a look that’s perfect for any occasion from a wedding reception to a weekend away.
I recommend an unlined jacket as it’s so cool in summer, in a classic colour such as navy to see you through from summer to autumn.
My design studio in Shoreditch offers a personalised service that allows unique details such as a custom printed lining, to match your favourite colour, a unique pattern, or even an illustration of your pet!
My newest design concept, the ‘Julien’ jacket (as seen worn by Thom Evans and Ryan Libbey), sports a detachable hood – ideal for the unpredictable British summer weather. I also work closely with the leading mills in Italy to offer super exclusive limited edition fabrics such as this metallic camouflage or flame pattern.
