We're getting serious Bridgerton vibes from real groom Groom Connor in his pink suit jacket. It complements the romantic theme of this country manor wedding perfectly. Complete with vintage cars, picturesque gardens and chic dresses. There's also a lovely family connection as Nathalie and Connor share their day with their daughter. We've been sharing lots of family weddings on our website recently and every one fills our hearts with joy.

Although our budget wasn’t small, we wanted to ensure the money was spent on good food and good times! We wanted our day to be as relaxed as possible so opted for less formal family photos and more fun! We didn’t want the day/night to end!

Nathalie & Connor


We wanted our wedding day to be all about us! We didn’t really have a vibe, we wanted everyone to have a good time, relax, eat, drink and be in love! Our day was full of emotion, laughing and dancing! The decor, outfit choices etc were all planned to ooze minimal effort but ooze class and glamour!


Connor actually brought a three-piece tux from Moss Bros. Two days before the wedding we were doing a shop in Tescos and came across a pink suit jacket and waistcoat in the sale!!! It was an absolute bargain and matched our wedding theme and colours perfectly! It was fate! I (Nathalie) didn’t actually know which suit Connor was going to wear until I walked down the aisle. It was such a lovely little surprise!


Our favourite moments were the times we managed to sneak away and walk the grounds alone. It gave us a chance to really take in the whole day and atmosphere. We found ourselves just holding hands and walking in silence, whilst our photographer Liza Edgington captured our love and smiles. It was beautiful.

Nathalie and Connor made a list of non-negotiable’s and went from there.

More and more grooms are embracing their own personal style on their wedding day, and opting for patterned, textured and a pink suit jacket like real groom Connor. In fact, we've seen lots of grooms don pink. Here is a roundup of suits styles worn by Rock My Wedding real grooms. Plus, you can always visit our Grooms Pinterest board for lots more inspiration.
