Jake & Rachael At The Constellations
Creative couple, Rachael, founder of Lovebug Films, and Jake, comedian, writer and founder of award-winning charity, Chasing The Stigma, wanted a relaxed, non-traditional wedding. They married in May 2018 at Constellations, an iconic Liverpool venue, which has become a social hub for art and music lovers alike. Read on to see how we helped Rachael and Jake to achieve a unique tailored suit for their wedding day.
As a wedding videographer, Rachael says:
“I am always thinking of ways to be creative and different in my work and so, when it came to our wedding, we knew we wanted to create something very individual”.
Rachael and Jake already knew many of the suppliers they had picked, but when it came to wedding suits, they had struggled to find a wedding suit to match their theme.
“We had been to quite a few places, but all the wedding suit styles were fairly traditional and we didn’t feel like any of them were ‘us’. Whitfield & Ward were suggested to us, as their suits are modern, so I immediately knew I’d be able to find a tailored suit to wear.”
Jake came to us with an open mind, but he always knew he wanted to wear a bow tie for this wedding. After visiting us, he fell in love with the way we focus all the attention on the groom.
“Whitfield & Ward had so many options to choose from. They put me in suits and waistcoats that I would never have thought to put together. The tailored wedding suit they made for me made me feel really special; my Mum even cried when she saw me, and I knew I had made the right choice.”
To create an impact, Jake wore a bespoke suit, with a blue check jacket, matching waistcoat, and navy block colour trousers. His groomsmen complemented his look with our navy Highgrove hire suit and a waistcoat to match.
When we asked Jake if he had any tips for to-be grooms, he said:
“My work is all about encouraging people not to be afraid to ask questions and I found that this advice helped me when I picked my wedding suit! I enjoyed the process so much and you were always on hand to put my mind at ease.”
