Groomsmen Outfit Ideas from Nottingham Wedding Photographer

Floral Buttonholes

A classic traditional male accessory at a wedding is the floral buttonhole, seen here in pale pink. The groom wears the same shade and complementing the pink of the groomsmen’s ties, which ties everything in nicely. I particularly like the way that the groom wears grey with a darker tie and brown shoes, a refreshing contrast to the dark navy of his groomsmen.

Blue Suits and Leather Shoes

This is lovely example of a great colour scheme for groom and groomsmen. I really like the royal blue of the groomsmen’s suits, complete with tan leather belts and shoes and complimented by pale blue silk ties and handkerchiefs. The groom himself wears a blue suit in a slightly darker shade, and tan brogues with blue detail to subtly distinguish him from his groomsmen.

Bow Ties and Chequered Waistcoats

This great waistcoat and bow tie ensemble was sure to make a big impression on this groom’s big day. We loved the quirky floral fabric of the bow tie and the clashing checks of the waistcoat – it just worked! You’ll notice beautiful little leather covered buttons and a pocket watch chain add to this distinctly vintage look. I ensured that the bow tie was the focal point of this photo by getting the groom to casually tweak it as he stood, drawing attention this particular accessory and guiding the eyes up towards his face.

It’s not just the ladies that have a lot to think about when it comes to wedding dresses and bridesmaids outfits – oh no! Groomsmen and grooms have also got their work cut out for them when it comes to looking smart and stylish on the big day. As a professional wedding photographer in Nottingham and Mansfield, James Davies has had the pleasure of photographing some really fantastic groom and groomsmen outfits, some of which are classic and traditional, and others quirky and individual!

From gorgeous gowns to intricate embellishments, take a look at this lovely selection of inspirational images that may just help you along in your quest to find the perfect wedding dress!

As a professional wedding photographer covering the Nottingham and Mansfield area, James Davies has the pleasure of seeing a selection of absolutely beautiful wedding dresses. For many women, choosing the perfect wedding dress is one of the most important decisions that a bride can make for her big day. If you’ve set a date and still need to decide on a dress, he’s put together a few examples of some of the wedding dresses that he’s been lucky enough to photograph.

Lace-Up Corset Style Wedding Dress

A popular detail on wedding dresses from several eras, the corset style of a lace up back adds instant glamour and elegant detail to a dress. Back closures on women’s clothes were traditionally a sign of wealth in centuries gone by, implying that the wearer had a servant that would help her to dress. You may make do with a willing bridesmaid these days, but the effect is still stunning! Using a thin sash of material, the dress is tied up at the back in a criss-cross fashion in the same way that a corset is fastened. This example includes delicate silk ribbon which contrasts beautifully with the floral appliqué and intricate beading on the bodice and skirt.

Veiled Traditional White Wedding Gown

A traditional white wedding gown with a simple veil is the perfect choice for a classic and timeless look. This gorgeous gown has a full skirt achieved with a layering effect using net and voile, perfectly complimenting the sheer fabric detail on the bodice and the elegant flowing effect of the veil.

50’s Style Wedding Gown

This 50’s inspired dress with lace detail and eye catching fascinator is a winning look. The ankle length skirt with its visible lining adds a touch of vintage glamour, and gives the bride the opportunity to show off her beautiful shoes! I love the way that she has chosen a bright floral bouquet to compliment her on trend lip and nail colour, instantly adding a modern twist to this classic look.
