Vintage Groom’s ‘Morning Of’ Editorial


Today we turn our attention to our gorgeous grooms! Because whilst a wedding is often said to be all about the bride (and her dress of course!) the truth is there are two people stood at the aisle, and modern couples put just as much focus on the style choices (and grooming) of the groom – and rightly so!

As brides we put so much time into planning our pampering for the morning of, its easy to forget that the getting ready ritual is just as essential for our grooms! Dedicated to grooms and their all important ritual the morning of the big day, this styled shoot showcases the barber art (both a traditional wet shave, and a beard groom) and was shot in the most charming vintage B&B in Jesi, a town in the Le Marche region of central Italy. Meticulously restored some years ago, the B&B, its architecture and decor recalls the elegance of eras past perfectly.
