Wedding Bow Ties - That One Occasion Where You Owe It To Yourself And Your Bride To Look Good

There are few things more satisfying for me than seeing great and happy wedding photos. Especially for myself, the great reward is knowing that I have played some part in creating more beautiful and elegant wedding portraits for mantels across the country and internationally for years to come. The idea that one day I might be at a house in Colorado or Long Island or perhaps somewhere as exotic as St. Petersburg and find myself looking at a wedding portrait in a family home where the groom is wearing my bow ties - that is very rewarding.

Growing up in Australia I knew of few wedding portraits where the father had tied his own bow tie. Even my own father wore a pre-tied black Mayfair shaped velvet bow tie. 

Today, as the photos come in from wedding photos from across the globe (though the majority are Australian) , I get to sigh and be happy. 

I never got married. If I did I have roughly an idea of what I'd wear, a cream shawl lapel dinner jacket for a late Spring wedding in the country with a grosgrain silk, a black bow tie, marcella bib shirt, bow tie cufflinks in rose gold, patent leather shoes. As for what she would be wearing, I never dreamt that far..... :) 

I love a good wedding portrait and I thank all our customers who send in their photos. It makes everything you do worth while and to see hand-tied bow ties - well, you can imagine, when I started, everyone told me I had rocks in my head.

To weddings and hand-tied bow ties, I salute you!
