Phill + Emma

Phill + Emma

Phill and Emma came to us with a clear wedding day vision - a grand and formal winter affair at Poppies in the Wairarapa.  The couple share a love for the finer things in life; Phill has a passion for rugby, whisky, cigars and fine tailored suits while Emma has a love for fashion and food.  It was our pleasure to dress Phill and his Groomsmen – here’s how it all came together…


Phill & Emma's Wedding - The Big Decisions


Made to Measure for the Groom.
Phill and Emma selected an ivory fabric from Holland & Sherry which we then crafted into a shawl collar Bryan dinner jacket.  Phill's made to measure jacket was paired it with our Ferry formal trouser. Complementing the colour of his jacket (and Emma's dress) Phil wore an ivory french cuffed Santiago shirt altered to fit perfectly.  Shirt buttons were substituted with black studs for added formality, and Phil chose a tie-your-own black bow tie and button-on black braces.

Suit hire for the Groomsmen.
The formal Bogart jacket and Fairbanks trousers worn by Phill’s four Groomsmen perfectly complemented Phill’s outfit.  The silk braid on the trousers and shawl collar matched the formality of the wedding.  The contoured cut of the jacket and adjustable trouser waistband accommodated each Groomsmens' unique shape and size. There was no confusion around who was the Groom in this wedding party - Phill in his ivory jacket took the limelight against the black suits worn by his groomsmen.

Finishing touches.
Phill and his groomsmen all wore white linen pocketsquares; Phill's with ivory edging to complement his jacket and likewise, the Groomsmen's with black edging.  The simple addition of classic black bow ties, braces and perfectly polished black whole cut oxford shoes complete the look.  Black polka dot socks were the perfect finshing touch.
