Claire & Garry’s Real Wedding

Claire and Garry spent two years planning their perfect wedding and found that this length of time was less stressful and far better for saving money. They booked Ardencote Manor and celebrated their ceremony with 70 guests before being joined by a further 50 friends.  The couple danced their first dance to a romantic tune by Leona Lewis, spent their honeymoon in Santorini and were under budget at the end of their planning.


The Groomswear

Garry and Claire decided to hire suits for the groom and his wedding party which consisted of 3 best men, 1 usher and 2 fathers.


The couple hired all of the suits from Nigel James Dresswear in Coventry.  The shop has been used for several family occasions in the past and the staff have always been very professional when it comes to advice and efficiency.

Garry and Claire went as a couple to choose the groomswear as Claire wanted to make sure that all of the colours matched her bridesmaids dresses perfectly. The couple mutually decided on cream waistcoats and coral pink cravats for the grooms party, but the groom wore purely cream accessories so that he matched the bride.
