Grooms Who Wore Kilts

Wearing different outfits on the big day is a fabulous same sex wedding idea and these grooms have pulled it off perfectly. The smart grey suit is a perfectly complementary outfit to wear next to the ravishing red and black kilt that the other groom is sporting. This is such a romantic wedding picture that we all want to recreate.

The kilt which this groom is wearing is so handsome and the colours are soft and work perfectly with his bride’s tea-length wedding dress. The combination of grey, navy and white looks amazing with the backdrop of this picture and we are getting serious relationship goals from these two.

Brilliantly bold in black, this groom has chosen a seriously smart kilted with striking metal studs and cute tartan detailing on the socks and tie. His bride is dressed beautifully in a classic white wedding dress with lots of embroidery and detailing. What a stunning pair, we would definitely steal their kilt wedding style in a heartbeat.

The romance between this couple is truly unmeasurable and the picture is totally wedding-worthy. This reminds us of something from a fairy tale movie. The textures of his kilt and jacket work perfectly with the bride’s lace embroidered dress. We love this picture of the romance-filled couple and could definitely imagine them having lots of disney wedding songs on their big day to carry on the theme that is so clearly portrayed in this picture.

The look which this groom has most definitely pulled off is undeniably smart and patriotic. His all-black kilt is gracious and sleek and definitely steal-worthy. We think this is a really handsome groom look for anyone who wants to rock a kilt at their wedding and the setting of the photo is just as stunning as the outfit itself.

What a gorgeous moment to capture. In this image you can not only see the newlyweds gleaming with happiness, but their guests also. The bride is showing true support for her Mr by adding a statement dark belt to her beautiful sleeved wedding dress which ties in with her groom’s black and navy stylish kilt. This is a colour-coordinated couple if we’ve ever seen one!

Everything in this romantic photograph is completely in sync from the colours, to the setting and even the couple themselves. The greenery surrounding the newlyweds is the exact bright shade that is featured in the groom’s kilt and we love the boldness of his style. The bride’s crisp, white strapless wedding dress is the epitome of stunning and her groom even has a floral buttonhole which matches.
