Groom fashion ~ Caro Hutchings & The Bijou Bride

Sep 12, 2013 | Inspiration
When planning a wedding it's often the groom is seen as not as important as the bride in his role for the big day. Not here at Wedding Sparrow! Don't be tempted to take a back seat boys! Get inspired and get involved. This groom fashion inspiration shoot from stylist Bijou Bride and photographer Caro Hutchings shows us exactly how your groom can think outside the box and attempt a subtle English Country Gent or Military fashion look. We love! From stylist Alexandra ~ "Photographer Caro Hutchings and I recently shot an Autumnal Style inspiration shoot in East London for the guys (because the groom usually gets left out!). The focus was nailing the country gent and military looks in a fresh way. Country Gent was based on wool based suits and accessories are the order of the day for winter weddings providing that much needed warmth. We maximised the lapel focus by teaming rustic floral buttonhole with pin badges. For a sartorial twist wear your country jacket with a plain pant and leather brogue boot.  And don't forget the gentleman's cane. Bow ties don't have to plain and in fact can be a fun nod to your chosen wedding theme.  Rory Hutton London specialises in quirky bow ties and accessories that will be sure to wow."

Styling ~ The Bijou Bride "For the 'Military' look I was inspired by Prada and I teamed a vintage RAF jacket with a silk cravat to take the look to the wedding aisle.  You can find hundreds of vintage military uniforms from second hand shops and eBay.  Don't be afraid of vintage but my top tip would be to take any vintage find to a professional tailor to ensure a perfect fit. Waistcoats can be easily jazzed up with military medals/badges and curtain trim/cords that you can find in any haberdashery store. Medals make a great alternative to the traditional floral button hole or tie, especially if they are a family heirloom. For a rock and roll twist wear a steampunk waistcoat with chunky boots."
