First up in Real Wedding posts for the blog we have Jonathan and Emilie.
Jonathan got in touch with me via Etsy in early July as I already had items in the shop made in one of his shortlisted fabric choices, the lovely coral and navy Felicité print.
Jonathan was initially looking for a necktie for himself, and as he was someone who doesn't wear them in everyday life I was able to provide examples of the different widths for him to choose from. My standard options are a slightly 'younger' 6cm narrow tie or a more traditional 8cm width, however I have in the past made a 7cm on the request of the groom and Jonathan opted for this width too, a good middle ground that is still young but maintains a classic look.
For his groomsmen he chose two more matching pocket squares to complement their solid colour ties, a nice touch for any of the wedding party who aren't fully on board with florals!
In addition to the gents in the bridal party, bride Emilie had four bridesmaids and I created some personalised bracelets for them in the same Felicité fabric. Any of the Tana Lawn fabrics I use for the groomsmen accessories can be used to create my signature range of jewellery so it's a really nice way to tie the whole party together.
With Jonathan and Emilie leaving for France for the wedding in early August I made sure the order was completed and with them for the first week of August. Judging by their photographs they were blessed with a typical French summer's day!
Jonathan styled his tie with a beautifully simple tie-clip and matching cufflinks, and the buttonhole flowers are the perfect colours to link it all together.
Thank you so much to Jonathan and Emilie for sharing your photos with us!
