The historic origins of wedding anniversaries date back to the Holy Roman Empire, when 25 years of marriage would earn a wife a silver wreath and 50 years saw a business-class upgrade to gold.
Yep, that’s right, European lady-killers in the Middle Ages are to blame for your anniversary anxiety and annual AmEx assault! That and commercialism of course.

Not every suit has to be bespoke or tailored to be the perfect fit for your wedding. Groom Brendan hired a sharp black suit from Formal Red, and made the ensemble his own with a dapper bow tie, which suited his gorgeous Abbotsford Convent Wedding day perfectly. Top it off with a small but elegant boutonniere, and you’ve got yourself a winning combo!
