High school lovers, April and John, took the plunge and married after more than 10 years together. Their celebration was centred around a old-world garden party, with much d.i.y. styling done by the couple, family and friends. Although hail arrived, it didn’t stop the groom (and bride) from looking their best! John discusses his classic look and choice of colour.

I wore a grey suit with texture to it, I didn’t want a shiny suit and the grey was my choice to fit in with the vintage style. I thought that grey was the most classic style. My pocket square was a fabric offcut of April’s dress which mum gave to me the morning of the wedding. It was really exciting to get a little glimpse of April’s dress without knowing at all what it would look like. My bow tie was off a cool online store – Grand Frank – which I came across by chance when looking for vintage wedding things. Myself and all my groomsmen wore vintage Casios which I bought for them as a gift. I love Casios, always have and thought they would go perfectly with the theme.
