Whilst we may usually be all about the bride, we’re also partial to a little groom style every once in a while. Which probably means that today is a good time to make a big confession to you all. *Takes deep breath*. OK. here goes….
I have rather a dislike for the traditional top hat and tails look. And I’ve also developed an allergic reaction to those swirly patterned waist coats too.
Please don’t hate me – I’m sorry! Well, I mean, I’m not sorry if I’m honest. I’ve seen too many ill fitting morning suits in my time. It’s not such a good look. And if you ask me, a gentleman looks so much more stylish and well groomed with a suit that fits and doesn’t make him look like a penguin. So my friends, I’m pretty chuffed this afternoon to be able to share these images with you that were styled by one of the UK’s most respected groom style consultants and someone I’m a little bit in awe of – Sammy Aki.
Shot on location at the stunning English palace and gardens and beautiful London wedding venue, Eltham Palace, Sammy worked with photographer Sarah Gawler and a creative team to produce these images to positively encourage the groom to think outside the box and consider a style that is more true and sartorially elegant to wear on their wedding day. Down with the top hats and tails I say!
“The shoot is a little Great Gatsby inspired and set at a 1920’s Art Deco Palace in London. Sammy Aki has launched her business as The Groom Style Consultant having worked on Saville Row as a stylist for many years so she was able to secure some amazing designers for the shoot. We are passionate about getting grooms thinking more creatively about their wedding attire and are really exited about putting some inspiration out there for them!”
Grooms – why shouldn’t you look wonderful, stylish and feel amazing on your wedding day too?
A big thank you to the creative team credited below for choosing to showcase their work on Love My Dresss.
