The other one
Sometimes we get asked who that other one is standing next to the bride. That, dear friends, is the groom.
We always try to include the bridal prep into the wedding day but it’s rare that we shoot the groom getting ready. Why? Because usually he jumps into the shower, has a shave, a quick swoosh of the hair and he’s off.
Groom prep usually just isn’t the same as the chaos and excitement of the bride. So it’s all the better when we do get some groom action.
I was looking back through the archives and I came across David’s shoot at the tailor. David and Jules held their wedding in Tetbury with a reception at Kingscote Barn. Prior to the big day he decided to have a tailored suit. A tailored suit is a suit that is already made but is fitted to you rather than have the huge expense of a bespoke suit. I met David and Matt his best man at Pakeman, Catto and Carter in Cirencester and photographed Phil, the tailor, as he measured and fitted their Jackets and waistcoats.
I’ve re-edited the images – you can see the original images on Love My Dress here – into black and white and I think they look nicer that way. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
As I said it’s great when we get a couple that have a unique wedding – Jules and David’s Kingscote Barn wedding is one of our sample albums – and it’s rare to see the grooms side so to prove it exists here are some images from the morning.
If you are having a unique wedding then get in touch we would love to hear from you.
