Last April we gave one lucky couple the opportunity to win a selection of free suits and bridal hair and make up for their wedding day. This year we’re once again offering a groom and bride-to-be the chance to have five free suits from our Jermyn St. store for their big day and a relaxing hotel break in London. We recently spoke to last year’s couple, Nathan and Simone, so they could share their thoughts with you on their prize and wedding plans. Read their comments below and enter our new wedding competition here: http://tmlewinblog.com/wedding-competition/
Out of the two of you who’s the most organised when it comes to wedding arrangements (and spill the beans… who really did the most work for it)?
Simone: “We can honestly say it has been a team effort, each playing on our strengths. Nathan is very imaginative and creative and has researched some wonderful additions to our big day, whereas, I am the organiser – putting all the ideas into action.”
How would you describe your wedding style in three words?
Nathan: “Simple, elegant and memorable.”
You’ve spent months leading up to the big day which aspect of it are you most nervous about?
Simone: “It may sound like a cliché, but our biggest worry about the day is the weather. Our venue is stunning inside and out, and we would love to be able to take advantage of both, especially as we are having a large wedding that could mean the venue bursting at the seams!”
How did you feel when you found out you’d won our wedding competition?
Simone: “Absolutely over the moon! We had been tracking the votes throughout the competition and the final day of voting was one of the most nerve racking days of our lives. When we got the email saying that we had won we started jumping round the house and cracked open a bottle of bubbly with the family. It was an amazing feeling knowing that so many of our friends and family had pulled out all the stops to help us win such an amazing prize. We never could have dreamed of having in excess of 540 votes!”
Was it difficult selecting your suits for the big day? And what made you decide on our Wentworth suit?
Nathan: “It was always going to be difficult picking a suit as I like a certain style and definitely didn’t want a traditional wedding suit. Simone is going to look stunning on the day and so I needed to find the perfect suit. Before winning the competition, I had been searching for ages for the right one and couldn’t find what I was looking for. After finding out that we had one, we automatically looked at the great range of suits offered by T.M.Lewin. The suit was always going to be grey but it was difficult picking one as there were light, mid and dark grey suits, plus slim and regular fit on offer. We tried on loads of great suits but still hadn’t found “the one”. I then looked online and saw the Wentworth from a previous season and loved it. It wasn’t back in stock until spring 2013 but literally as soon as it was in, we went and tried it on. The suit is fantastic and looks really good on all of the groomsmen. The fact that it is a three piece suit gives it a lovely wedding feel and I couldn’t be happier with the suits.”
