Suited and booted at Hackett
The go-to for the modern man who enjoys timeless style, the world might have branched out from morning suits when it comes to men’s wedding attire, but there are few things as chic as a man in good tailoring. Whether you’re a three-piece kinda guy, you’re partial to Prince of Wales check or you prefer Italian wool, Hackett will make sure every member of the wedding party is looking sharp.
White wedding gift
There are so many gifts that go with weddings – those for the happy couple, as well as thank you gifts for the people who help you to make your big day happen.
Buying a wedding gift is an important moment – it’s something for the couple, but it’s also something you want them to look at in 30 years’ time and remind them of their day. The White Company at Jubilee Place mall never fails to deliver, with luxury items ranging from their Savoy Bed Linen to luxury cashmere throws, mother of pearl photo frames, or a set of champagne flutes.
For wedding favours, Whittard of Chelsea in One Canada Square is a great option, with inspired tea and coffee gifts and gift sets in a range of sizes, including customisable options. Personally, we’re partial to their Tea Discovery sets.
Made up at Bobbi Brown
Wedding day make-up is more important than ever in the social media age – you want to look fresh faced all day in real life, but you also want to look flawless for all those Instagram moments… and that’s before you get to the professional shots. You know what they say, practice makes perfect, which is why a trip to Bobbi Brown in Cabot Place mall is in order. Check out their Jenny Packham collection from the queen of wedding style, and also book a personal or in-store one-on-one lesson with one of their pro artists to work out your style.
Not a hair out of place
The make-up is sorted but what about the perfect cut? Both men and women want their hair to be picture perfect come wedding day, and for most of us that means a little professional help. Jon Hala‘s cutting edge hair care is the place to go for everything from colour to style and nourishing Olaplex and Keratin treatments – you can even get your eyelashes done while you’re there. Gents, head to Ted’s Grooming Room at Cabot Place mall for traditional Turkish barbering and the closest shave out of Istanbul.
Naturally you’re glowing with happiness on your big day, but for a flawless finish, why not give your skin a boost as well? Jon Hala is not just the patron saint of haircare, but they also work wonders on your skin as well. Offering treatments including mesotherapy, NeoGen plasma and micro needling, they can help you prepare with the ultimate in bridal beauty.
Dressed for the occasion
Some brands always have your back and John Lewis is one such place. Whether you’re shopping for a wedding dress, bridesmaid dress or you’re a guest looking for standout style, their Canada Place store is the place to go. With brands ranging from Ghost to Whistles, Monsoon to Hobbs and Nobody’s Child, there’s a style for everyone. You can also pick up wedding gifts while you’re there.
Best foot forward
You can’t be suited and not booted, so to speak, so where do you go for wedding worthy footwear? Barker Shoes has a wedding collection for men from country classics to formal staples, characterful Brogues to smart Oxfords. Then again, you can also never go wrong with Russell & Bromley, from elegant court shoes and sandals to bridal platforms that lengthen legs and provide a playful touch. They also have a range of wedding bags – small enough to fit with your outfit, spacious enough to keep those essentials on hand.
The Princess of Wales famously filled Westminster Abbey with the scent of Jo Malone’s Orange Blossom when she married Prince William, burning candles underneath the maple trees that were brought in for the occasion. So, what scent sums up your signature style? Head to Jo Malone London to explore their wedding fragrances, or Penhaligon’s for the perfect his ‘n’ hers perfumes.
