Joe Swash met Stacey Solomon on the set of 'I'm a celebrity get me out of here' after she was crowned Queen of the Jungle in 2010. They started dating soon after the show finished and got engaged when Joe got down on one knee on Christmas Eve 2020. Unfortunately they had to postpone their first wedding date due to the pandemic but on 24th July 2022 their wedding took place. Held at their family home, Pickle Cottage in Essex.
Joe Swash wedding suit
For his wedding Joe chose a dark navy suit with a matching collarless double breasted waistcoat and a sage green bow tie. As he had a large white rose buttonhole he decided to not have a pocket square. Well done Joe, less is more!
How to recreate Joe's look
A dark classic navy lounge suit is a very popular look with our Grooms. Keeping the suit colour dark allows the bridesmaid colour to really 'pop'. It is less harsh to wear than black and regardless of if's the Groom or Grandad is an easy colour to wear. Plus it will always look elegant and smart in any wedding setting. Adding the sage green bow tie really works for their garden wedding and is a really popular shade of green currently.
This is probably one of the easiest looks to recreate, and one of our own customers favourite looks too. Our navy light weight wool suit can be dressed using our matching waistcoats. Our matching waistcoat styles include a collarless double breasted (as wore by Joe), classic single breasted and scoop. Alternatively we run these styles in other fabrics within our collections. If you want to stand out then add a contrast waistcoat but keep the style the same.
As with all of our hire range we run extra short, short, regular, long and extra long fittings. Boys wear is available as well starting from approximately 2 1/2-3 years old.
Custom made suit
With a custom suit you can create your suit by choosing your cloth, style, design, lining, trimmings and fit for your unique outfit. With a custom made suit you are fitted in a suit and then there are 8 points which can be altered within the suit pattern at time of the production. From the chest and waist of the jacket to the width of the trouser.
A custom made suit is a more scaled back version of our made-to-measure suit collection. It offers you lots of choice when designing the perfect suit for your special occasion. Choose from a selection of over 120 cloths, select your lining, buttonhole colour and buttons.
Custom made wedding suits normally take approximately 8-12 weeks to come into us. This may vary at certain times of the year. Once your suit arrives we would contact you to arrange to have your first fitting. Should any further alterations or adjustments be needed they can be done for you within 48 hours.
With our made-to-measure suits you have full control over every aspect of your suit. The joy of a made-to-measure suit is that there are many more fit options are available for us to use to ensure your suit contours to your body perfectly. The options available are much more intricate, precise and detailed than you can reach on a custom made suit.
From the width of your lapel, the angle of your jacket and trouser pockets to the length of your vents. You can chose from an extensive range of lining colours and designs. I beleive we can offer over 1000 different fabrics! Have your suit personalised on your melton and inside lining with your name, initials, wedding date or something a more risque! down to the hand stitching on the buttonholes.
