What is your most memorable wedding?
The most memorable wedding I have ever been to has to be my sister and brother-in-laws. They had a stunning wedding in the heart of Norfolk. They had spent lots of time creating special touches from polaroid place settings, flip flops for dancing time and a limbo pole. What I loved about their day was they had created the day for everyone and had really taken the time to think about their guests.

For me its a stylish Groom, that lets his personality do the talking. A well considered outfit, with real attention to detail. Thinking outside the box and show your style, flair and personality.
Why is groomswear just as important as bridalwear?
It is so important! I remember, my poor hubby struggling to find accessories for our wedding day, whilst I was spoilt for choice. This is the very reason I set up English Gentleman. The groom deserves to be as fantastic as their partner.
What is the most original outfit you have seen a groom wear?
I went to a wedding with a very stylish groom a smart shirt and suit. Hidden underneath however, was a t-shirt says "I love Bea" his new wife. Quirky and thoughtful.
