It’s not just about the dress…


Boys… it’s your turn!

With so many blogs about dresses, make-up, jewellery, honeymoons…. what about you guys?!

Are you a dapper chap who wants to look your very best on your big day?

Last year I discovered Bill Child Formal Wear when photographing the most gorgeous wedding of my career, for Terri & Scott in Ledbury.

Established in the year 2000 by Bill Child this family run, gents formal attire business has been providing stunning outfits to upwards of 200 weddings a year.

Bill, upon reaching retirement age passed the business to his daughter Carolyn, who then continued to provide an excellent service to their clients.

Bill Child Formal Wear provides for sale or hire a vast array of clothing and accessories to grooms, groomsmen and page boys (wee shorts!!!).  They have new collections for any Spring, Summer or Winter wedding which includes the most beautiful Tweed pieces such as the waistcoat, which is my personal favourite piece of male formal wear (I think all men should own a full tweed suit for Winter… for nothing else but to go to the pub in…) checkout their website to view their tweed!!!

Over the years their clients have visited their shop to not only to be kitted out for their ‘wedding suit’ but for such occasions as Royal Ascot, Buckingham Palace Awards and Charity Ball’s.  All these occasions require the finest garb and Carolyn is there as an expert in every style and fit and she will advise and accessorise every gent who visits accordingly.  New Years Eve and Hogmanay is also a very busy time of year for this independent family run business and their clients include well dressed gents who are all about looking their best for any celebration!

Personally I think that you guys look amazing in suits or like Scott here, choosing a pair of fabulous tailored trousers which he twinned with bare feet! Every man has his own style….maybe make your wedding the occasion you treat yourself to a quality outfit? It’s not JUST about the dress!

Thank you to Terri & Scott for being the most fabulous couple and allowing Carolyn and I to publish some of the images from their big day.

Their wedding was also published in the Boho Weddings blog.
