|Jen and Ryan's Americana Wedding|
Back in December when I was still working in my lovely home town of Bristol Ryan and Jen came to me for a wedding suit. They wanted to get married in the spring and wanted something special. A lovely couple, Jen came along to help pick the cloth but didn't come to subsequent fittings to keep the overall look of the suit a surprise.
Ryan's overall inspiration was Americana with a rockabilly feel. He told me about a pair of shoes he wanted to get (two tone ones) and we looked at the music video Social Distortion: Machine gun blues for inspiration (What fun!) After much dissussion Ryan decided to go for a black herringbone cloth, HB-6 with a Burgundy red lining. The herringbone cloth and peaked lapels kept the suit vintage, circa 1950 with the slanted pockets, single vent and tapered trousers giving it that modern twist.
When Ryan came to the studio to try on his two piece suit both me and David loved the whole thing! The shoes, the tie, shirt and suit went so well together, we immediately asked Ryan and Jen if they minded us having a look at there wedding photos. The lovely couple did not disappoint and have recently been the subject of an online article at Rock and Roll Bride.
Jen and Ryan had there photo's taken by Gemma Bell from Venus Blue Imaging and were kind enough to let me put them up on our blog. Ryan's suit perfectly complimented Jennifer's dress, a custom made vintage inspired number. The whole day looks absolutely lovely.
We wish Jen and Ryan all the best and are so glad that we could help them out with their big day.
