And by that I don’t just mean the Grooms!
Here at NKP we believe that a wedding day is very much just as much about the boys as it is about the girls!
Too often you’ll hear people say ‘its all about the Bride’. Well its not really! When you get married you are starting an equal partnership and that’s why here at NKP we spend time with both the Bride and Groom before the wedding starts.
But as well as the Grooms there are also other key male players on a wedding day…
I love this key ring about that Becca gave her Father on her wedding day (above).
Its a really big day for a Dad when he has to ‘giveaway’ (I know that’s an old fashioned term but run with me on that!) his daughter or son on their wedding day.
Its now more of a symbolic gesture but an important one nonetheless. Its the bringing together of two families and an opportunity for the two to symbolically show the joining of the two.
Something borrowed is often from the Mum’s side of the family however Becky’s Father’s RAF badge provided the blue on her wedding day alongside a handwritten note from her Dad (above).
As with most wedding days, the men tend to wear suits of some description. Be those morning suits through to a sharp suit through to a blazer or tweed jacket. There’s little to embellish or jazz up and so many of our Clients have some fun with the more hidden parts of their outfits for the day.
Sendu’s wedding scarf (below) added a fabulous shot of colour and detail to his wedding outfit.
And how about this stunning fob watch (below) that Dave was given for his wedding day and the engraved cuff links that Dan was given on his wedding day (above).
And who says that something old, something new is just for the girls? When Danny and Ben married, Danny had this gorgeous wedding pin made for Ben for their big day (below).
Polished brogues (above) for Ben and Danny on their wedding day at Hotel du Vin in Cheltenham, and something completely different (below) for Sendu on his wedding day…
And of course to ensure there’s no doubt…! The soles of Tony’s shoes below when he married Claire…
Who’s to say that you have to have a regular tie or a cravat? A cheeky pink bow tie was the order of the day for Joe and his groomsmen on his wedding day (above)!
I simply adore these photographs of Richard and Roo! They were taken a good few years ago now at Dewsall Court but have stuck in my mind as favourites of mine.
You don’t necessarily have to be a blood parent to be a good parent.
The littlest gentleman is the perfect description for this super cute junior outfit! And best of all it was super comfortable which is all important for kids at weddings. They are long long days for little ones!
Another gorgeous Father/Son moment taken at the wedding of Chris and Debs at Manor by the Lake (below).
There’s always a huge bond between a Groom and his groomsmen. They have been chosen for a reason. For their long friendship, their support, for being there when it matters most.
A long term friend and Vicar was the best man of choice for Adrian on his wedding day at The Slaughters Country Inn, and these two super cute ushers were nephews of Karl for his marriage to Lisa (below).
The more elaborate the better for Andy on his wedding day to Becky at the Matara Centre (above). And their beloved Dachshund Bertie was a huge part of the day (below).
So lets hear it for the boys! The details, the fun, the laughter, the individuality, and the happy ever after!
