I love these shots of Gerard as he prepares for his big day – particularly the one with him and his groomsman; it just captures what he and Leah’s beautiful wedding was all about – a very relaxed and laid back celebration.
I’m not sure whether Gerard’s groomsman has finished getting ready and is returning a borrowed ironing board….or whether someone has forgotten to iron their shirt and it’s a last-minute dash before the boys’ wedding car arrives…
Never the less, just as we seem to have our checklists finalized with not a detail left to chance… let’s not forget that the groom and his groomsmen probably need one too. Items to remember on the wedding day include….suit, tie, buttonhole, socks, shoes….copy of speech, aftershave, ‘Dutch courage’ – and wedding rings (vitally important!)
Whilst most grooms don’t like being ‘overly organized’ by their fiances, a little hand written checklist never goes astray….you never know when he might need an ironing board!

It’s no secret that I love stripes!!!! A striped ribbon with long ties wrapped around a garden picked bouquet is just so dreamy….
Stripes are a great way too of introducing a bit of a showstopping detail to ‘Mr Groom’s’ suit too, without going over the top. Combined with a simple flower in a buttonhole, his outfit is complete.
With so many variations to choose from – narrow, wide, bold or soft….. stripes really are very stylish!! This pretty buttonhole is so easy to make too – visit DIY Buttonholes for Weddings by Foxglove Botanicals for even more inspiration!
With so many grooms wanting to perfect a look that’s really theirs, we’re always eager to see what designers bring out in their new collections and the Calibre Autumn/Winter 2015 collection is sure to impress.
This season, we see refined suits in strong tones of navy and petrol; combined with deep winter colours of lilac, merlot, jade and almond, these cooler tones really come to life.
The suits (with a new addition to the collection – the stretch suit developed in Italy for comfort and style) are a nod to the 1970’s gentlemen. Slim and tapered silhouettes go with wider lapels whilst defined shoulders and checked shirts with bolder, bigger patterns highlight the wearer’s up to date choice.
So on trend to complete the Calibre Autumn Winter 2015 collection are classic trenches, statement blazers and leather jackets. All available in store now – hard to choose just one really!
