We just love H+Co weddings and dressing our grooms for their big day, but it’s even better when the groom is a long time customer and friend.
Rob has been coming to H+Co with his sons for many years and visited us recently to let us know he was getting married to his now wife, Susan. It was their second marriage so the pair wanted to keep things casual and they also have five children between them, Tom, Will, Ben, Jesse and Dan. All boys!
The couple had two big days planned – one being held in Australia and a second in Europe. Rob decided on a made to measure suit for both occasions and picked a three piece for something special and a little bit different.
Appointments for H+Co weddings are all part of the experience of planning the big day so Rob and Susan came in together to share their wedding style with us and look at colours and fabrics that we could tie into Susan’s plans and themes for the wedding.
They loved choosing the made to measure fabrics and opted for a pale blue colour in a ‘window pane’ check, with paisley lining and peak lapels. Rob wore his suit with brown shoes and a lilac tie, which really topped off the look.
As this was a day to bring the two families and all the boys together, Rob wanted everyone to feel like they were a part of the wedding so we decided to dress the groomsmen in matching jackets.
We selected three jacket styles that would be the most suitable to compliment the theme of the day and Rob decided on a slim fit Gibson sport jacket in blue with patch pockets, that he felt would work for everyone.
After touching base with each of the groomsmen over the phone, they all booked individual appointments to come and visit the showroom. We took all of their measurements and got to work fitting the jackets which was a great experience.
Dan has Cerebral Palsy and is in a wheelchair, so it was really important for us to make sure he would be totally comfortable on the day and we took great care with alterations to get the fit just right for him.
The boys wore their jackets, which all fitted perfectly, with a crisp white shirt and open collar and their lapel flowers really added a stunning pop of colour.
They all looked absolutely fantastic and Rob really stood out in his very dapper made-to-measure suit.
Rob and Susan, it was a total pleasure dressing the male contingent of your wonderful family and we’re delighted to feature your day in our H+CO weddings blog.
Many congratulations to all of you and a huge thank you for allowing H+Co be a part of your special day.
PLANNING YOUR OWN WEDDING?
For our H+Co weddings couples, we recommend making an appointment just for the two of you to share with us your vision and styling for your wedding.
Working with your style and colour themes, we will guide you through our collections of suits and fabrics and help you create a short list of suits you’d like to work with to compliment your wedding style. Bring along anything that you’d like to show us to help shape our discussion, such as colours, pictures of your venue, flowers etc.
From there we can go ahead and book a group appointment, or individual appointments as we did for Rob and Susan. If you arrange an appointment after hours, we can relax and devote as much time as you need to make sure we get every detail just right. We’ll have some Champagne and a few beers on ice to help get you all in a celebratory mood and some nibbles to keep you going.
At the first group appointment, or individual appointments, we take all measurements of each member of the wedding party as well as explore which styles and shapes suit everyone best.
You can choose from our ready-to-wear collections or opt for fully customised made-to-measure.
