The Caribbean is the ideal location for a relaxed destination beach wedding. With over 700 individual islands that make up the Caribbean the perfect wedding venue can't be hard to find. Here are a few celebrities that chose one of the islands for their weddings, along with the Grooms suit for the occasion & how to recreate their look.
Turks & Caicos
Brooks Koepka & Jena Sims wedding
Pro golfer Brooks Koepka married Jena Sims in Turks and Caicos on 4th June 2022. Both the pre-wedding party and wedding were held at the Amanyara Hotel. For their wedding Brooks wore a bespoke light mid grey suit which Jena had designed the lining for. The lining of his suit was created especially for Brooks. It featured Jena in various poses wearing lingerie.
To recreate Brooks grey suit look we can offer to do this within our hire collection, custom made range and full made-to-measure collection too.
Bahamas, the Caribbean
Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon's wedding
On 30th April 2008 Mariah Carey married Nick Cannon at Mariah's private residence 'Sea Lily' on Winderemere. Winderemere is a completely private island off of Eleuthera, and when I say private I mean private. The only way on or off the island are by helicopter or an armed guarded gated walk way from Eleuthera!
Mariah's wedding dress was created by Nile Cmylo, it was a fitted ivory dress that faded in to a soft pink at the bottom. Nick wore an ivory suit to match Mariah's dress (designer unknown). The suit was a 2 piece which was finished off with a white tie and pocket square.
Nick's wedding suit can be recreated by our made-to-measure team in many different ivory fabrics from silks, barberis and new for 2023 non-crease linen.
Pink & Carey Hart's wedding
Singer Pink (real name Alecia Moore) married motor cross racer Carey Hart on 7th January 2006. Their destination wedding was held at the Four Seasons Hotel Costa Rica. Pink wore a Monique Lhullier bustle skirt wedding dress with a black sash which picked up on Carey's black 3 piece suit which was finished off with an ivory tie to compliment Pink's dress.
We can recreate Carey's wedding suit look in hire wear, custom made suits or a full made-to-measure suit.
St Lucia, Caribbean
Matt Damon & Luciana Barroso's renewal on 13th April 2013
Matt Damon & Luciana Barroso got married at New York City in a small private ceremony back on 9th December 2005. After 8 years the couple finally had their lavish reception on the island of St Lucia. The reception was held at The Sugar Beach Resort. Although they once again tried to keep it a secret affair I have found a few photos.
It appears that they asked all of their wedding guests to wear white whilst they both chose to wear dark cream latte shades. Luciana's dress was a long chiffon tulip style with a gold belt by Ngeem Khan and Matt chose to wear a two piece suit, finishing it off with flip flops!
At Anthony's we can recreate Matt's light beige suit look via both our custom made and full made-to-measure collections.
Tiger Woods & Elin Nordegren's wedding
In Barbados the only place for a celebrity couple to get married is at the famous Sandy Lane Hotel. Back in 2004 Tiger Woods took the full resort over for a week to celebrate his wedding to Elin Nordegren and with rooms starting at $1155 (£943) to £10560 (£8625) per night, you can safely say it wasn''t a budget wedding. Tiger also managed to book every helicopter in Barbados to avoid the paparazzi's cameras but I did manage to find a few photo's. Elin's dress was the Victoria gown by Vera Wang from her Luxe collection, whilst Tiger opted for a relaxed, wide leg latte coloured, what appeared to be, linen suit with an ivory tie.
You can recreate both Tiger & Matt Damon's light coloured wedding suits in both our custom made and full made-to-measure ranges. Why not call us and book an appointment with one of our specialists. Below are a few samples plus some of our customers in their made-to-measure wedding suits.
Holly Branson & Fred Andrew's wedding
The joy of your parents owning Necker Island means that you have the most perfect private wedding island in the Caribbean and for Holly Branson & Fred Andrews that was just the case. The romantic part is that it was the exact same spot where her parents got married on in 1989.
Holly's dress & veil was a bespoke design by Australian designer Jane Hill. Whilst Fred opted for a traditional black tailcoat with stripe trousers completing his look with an ivory waistcoat and pale pink tie.
You can recreate Fred's traditional morning suit look in both our hire range and made-to-measure collections.
I also noticed that lots of the male guests chose black tailcoats but teamed them up with bright coloured trousers and matching ties. I guess that's just adding a Caribbean twist to a traditional look!
Shania Twain & Frederic Thiebaud's wedding
Country singer Shania Twain married Swiss business man Frederic Thiebaud on New Year's day 2011. Teir wedding took place on the beach at sunset with just a handful of guests. For the ceremony Shania wore a white dress with a black sash. Her dress was purchased from a small boutique in her home town in Switzerland. Frederic opted for a pure white linen 3 piece suit and a black open necked shirt which linked in to Shania's sash.
You can recreate Frederic's white suit in our custom and made-to-measure ranges. Please be aware that the MTM sample photo is in an off white but pure white is available.
Selby Drummond & Steven Dubb's wedding
When a former Vogue Editor, now Head of Fashion & Beauty at Snapchat, gets married you know you're in for a fashion treat. Selby Drummond married Steven Dubb on 1st June 2019 at the Belmond Cap Juluca Resort in Anguilla surrounded by some of the biggest fashionistas on the planet. So what did the bride wear? well she changed her look three times. For the wedding Selby chose to wear a custom made Giambattista Valli gown with a long train and long veil, for the reception Selby wore a Bill Bull sleeveless dress with floral applique and the after party saw her change into a Paco Rabbanne mini white chain disc creation. As for Steven Dubb, who works in real estate, he chose to wear a navy double breasted suit with classic navy tie and white pocket square by an unnamed designer.
Steven's wedding suit look can be recreated in both our custom and made-to-measure collections. In our hire collection we have only single breasted styles available.
Barron Hilton & Countess Tessa Grafin von Walderdorff
When the brother of Paris Hilton gets married you might have expected an elaborate over the top event. But how wrong you would be to assume. For his wedding to Countess Tessa Grafin von Walderdorff of Bavaria (Germany) Barron Hilton opted for a smaller more intimate affair. Celebrated at Villa la Plage a beachfront property which according to the website can cost between $62,915 (£51,247) & $198,680 (£161,834) per week to rent.
The Countess Tessa dress came from American brand Watters, it was a custom version of their 'Mihr' dress. It had a v neck illusion front and deep v back and created using 25 yards of washed silk organza plus 50 yards of tulle. To achieve a more personal look and at the request of the Bride and her mother sleeves were added. To complete the Brides personal style was the additional delicate beading. Apparently the Countess asked for it to look like 'pixie dust', which it most certainly did. The Countess Tessa's veil was by designer Toni Federici.
Barron Hilton chose to wear a bespoke made pure white linen suit by designer Bellucci Napoli. To have a bespoke suit made it would cost an additional $1500 (£1220) just for the 'bespoke' service. If you want to have Nedo himself serve you, you can an additional $500 (£407). It's worth pointing out that those costs are before you've even discussed the price of the actual suit.
We can recreate Barron Hilton's white linen wedding suit within our made-to-measure collection with prices starting from £695 for a 2 piece suit and £895 for a 3 piece, we won't even charge you extra for seeing any of our MTM specialists!
