Celebrating the design + style of luxe weddings across canada, the usa + beyond

Garrison Bespoke, Toronto’s luxe custom tailors, have launched Garrison Weddings — a boutique designed exclusively for grooms and groomsmen.

Located in Toronto's Omni King Edward Hotel, Garrison Weddings offers private, by-appointment shopping where grooms and their brides-to-be can choose patterns, fabrics, and accessories while enjoying champagne and scotch.

For those looking to add the finishing touch to their wedding wardrobe, Garrison Weddings stocks Drake’s London bow ties (worn by Kanye West at his wedding to Kim Kardashian!) and the James-Bond-preferred Albert Thurston suspenders.

Stylish grooms can learn more about the boutique at: garrisonbespoke.com/weddings

This WedLuxe fashion editorial appears in our Summer/Fall 2014 “In Love With Colour” issue, and was inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic tale, Alice in Wonderland.

The feature was conceptualized by Art Director Rebekah Cuff of WedLuxe and photographed by Josh Cornell to showcase a pretty collection of pastel-hued gowns. The gowns were sourced from Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay, Vera Wang, Pearl Bridal House, Ines Di Santo, and Valencienne.

Jackie Gideon served as creative producer for the whimsical shoot, and her team from Jackie Gideon Beauty provided hair and makeup services.

The dreamy, fairytale floral designs seen throughout the story were created by Marta Urbanowicz, Design Director of Fifth Element Group. Vintage decor props were sourced from Anne & Co.

The watercolour treatment was created in post-production by our editor-in-chief Angela Desveaux.

Please visit the end of the blog post for the full list of talented creative professionals involved.

In one of the most anticipated weddings of the year, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin finally tied the knot this past weekend! So far, the details of the Venice wedding weekend give some of the most luxe inspiration imaginable.

In a show-stopping entrance, the groom led a caravan of boats down the Grand Canal to the Aman Canal Grande hotel (exterior above, interior below), the jaw-dropping location of the ceremony and reception.

The ceremony took place on Saturday at sunset. Exchanging personalized vows, the couple wed under an arch of roses. After the quick ceremony, guests enjoyed a five-course meal from Italian chef Riccardo De Prà and his team. The guest list was small, only 100 in attendance, but included Anna Wintour, Emily Blunt, Bill Murray, and many more of the world’s most stylish.

George, always one of the most well-dressed on the red carpet, wore a black Armani tuxedo to the wedding and a grey suit to the civil service. Though images of the bride’s gown have not been released yet (it has been confirmed that she wore Oscar de la Renta), Amal looked stunning the day after in a white Giambattista Valli Couture mini dress with colourful floral detailing. She also looked amazing the night before in a red and black Alexander McQueen gown that she wore to her bachelorette party. In the Monday morning civil service, Amal wore a Stella McCartney trouser suit in cream paired with a matching hat.
