As he thinks back to his elegant winery wedding, Jay remembers how beautiful his bride Brea looked as she walked towards him.

“Brea looked beautiful. Her dress, hair and make-up were all just perfect; simple, flawless and natural. It was very her. I also remember the feeling of having all of our closest family and friends there for us – it was a very overwhelming feeling”.

Walker Slater Waistcoat

When planning your outfit, don’t be afraid to mix textures with patterns and colours; a timeless look that never goes out of style as Tim remembers in the lead up to his relaxed forest wedding to Jane.

“I wore a simple fitted white shirt and black trouser combined with a navy lambswool tweed waistcoat and silk plaid tie. I wanted to look and feel like an English gentleman and wear an outfit that expressed who I was. As a final touch to my suit, I wore a replica Doctor Who pocket watch which was given to me as a wedding gift.”

Accessories that have been receiving a lot of love recently are the ever so smart “old school” watches. Not only can they tell you the time, but they’re effortless and expressive. All you need is one on your wrist to give any one of your outfits that little extra bit of character it needs!


Daniel Wellington watches are timeless and crisp – and without too many features, they make a wonderful accessory for wedding time getups or even as groomsmen’s gifts!

Whether you’ve been invited to a posh wedding reception or a beachside bucks barbecue, a Daniel Wellington watch is the perfect plus one, because it’s got you covered – in style. The watch designs vary in clock face shape, clock face colour (silver or rose gold), clock display and strap (NATO or leather).




As well as that, the straps are interchangeable, so if you have two events in one day you can change it up a bit! Wear a colourful NATO strap during the day then an elegant leather strap at night.
