Purple Haze

Grooms Purple Velvet Frock Coat by With Love and Lace . . .

This stylish and unique groom, Drew, will admit that he is never one to be upstaged; he was eager to ensure that his lovely bride shared the limelight on their big day so he chose to dress to impress wearing a bespoke purple velvet jacket.

Made to measure in a high quality purple velvet with grey satin lining, the lapels feature hand painted lace motifs. I really enjoyed researching menswear and working with Drew to develop mood boards and designs and particularly enjoyed the challenge of creating mens tailoring, something I hadn’t done much of since studying tailoring as part of my MA at London College of Fashion.

Drew looked fantastic, a real dapper English eccentric; although it has to be said that if he truly wanted to upstage his bride he failed miserably – the beautiful Alyson totally blew him out of the water (which is as it should be!) looking a million dollars in her bespoke Judy Mott bridal gown.

Their entire wedding party looked amazing, their Rowhill Grange Wedding had a wonderful English country garden feel to it and everything about it was planned and coordinated to perfection.


I wish the super stylish Drew and Alyson every happiness for their future together, congratulations!
