Being included on their special day has seen our garments taken and worn all over the world and in varying locations: in cathedrals, churches, vineyards, and on rooftops, boats, and islands. These weddings are regularly featured in magazines and we are often sent images from the grooms.

While most imagery is digital, the occasional printed photographs are posted to us – prized images that have been selected for albums. It is with that concept of an Album that inspired us to start our own.

This Album page shares the images documenting one of the most treasured days of the grooms’ (and brides’ of course) lives, all of whom have remained loyal clients and friends.

Over the past 16 years we have had the honour of working with grooms and groomsmen on their wedding day attire.
