Tweed Weddings - Part 3
Wedding season is nearly upon us and we can't wait to see all the wonderful images from this 2016's selection. A few customers have shared some wonderful images from last year to start our creative juices flowing, so let us kick off with...
Rob and Tiffany
Rob and Tiff were married at Shakespeare's Globe on the South Bank of the Thames. Rob wore a Donegal style Shetland three piece with a crisp white shirt and glorious pink silk knit tie, whilst Tiffany wore a beautiful lace detailed gown.

Richard and Mark
Mark and Richard were married at Elmore Court in Gloucestershire and went for a British woodland theme, hence the choice of tweed for their matching wedding suits. Elmore is a country house from around 1580. But a couple of years ago, the family added the Gillyflower - a super environmentally friendly ballroom made from sustainable materials found on the estate. You really must have a look!
Mark took the task of creating the animal head table listings, menus, invites and extraordinary matching suit-clad stag cake toppers. The couple also worked with wedding stylist Amber Persia for the flowers, table settings and to create the perfect woodland atmosphere.
The high point of the day (other than the obvious) was their first dance as husband and husband. Mark and Richard learned the Charleston from Youtube clips and danced along to a live jazz band for all their guests (lit up by their initials, as seen below)!

Jessica and George
Jessica and George were married at Pennsylvania State Capitol Rotunda, with their reception taking place at the Civic Club of Harrisburg. George wore the three piece navy Donegal style Shetland three piece with a dark tie and a succulent filled corsage (good complimentary green-blue tones for the tweed). Jessica went for a much more sparkly option, including a pretty cracking pair of sparkly heels (oh come on, you know you could wear sparkly heels with your three piece—this isn't just for the ladies!).
Not all our customers are able to pop in for the full tweed experience, and George was one of them (being based in the USA). It really is wonderful to see suits which were sent so far away being enjoyed.

The accessories can bring out as much or as little of the engrained colour as you like.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_2978" align="aligncenter" width="684"] George and Jessica are high school sweethearts—we bet this day blows prom right outta the water![/caption] [caption id="attachment_2979" align="aligncenter" width="683"] And one more, just because.[/caption]
Ayesha and Eddie
Ayesha and Eddie were married at The Old Bell—a medieval inn situated in East Berkshire, with 5 main buildings and beautiful kitchen garden. Eddie wore the charcoal Donegal three piece, with a crisp white shirt and flash of burgundy (which neatly coordinated with the flowers in Ayesha's crown).
