Following on my previous Blog, David commissioned me to photograph his suit he had designed. The making of Harry Potter star Oliver Phelp’s wedding suit.
David had been asked by Oliver for a personalised lining to go with his wedding suit. David had already made suits for Oliver for the Harry Potter Premiers and had his pattern on file, so it was a case of David designing something personal for the big day.
David comments “I had designed a number of suits for the Weasley Twins from Harry Potter, Oliver and James Phelps. The water repellant suit for the last premier really stands out in the memory! So when Oliver asked me to design his wedding suit I was chuffed to bits.
This time though the brief was traditionally British but with a twist. Top hat and tails was the order of the day but I wanted to incorporate a few details that made the suit totally personalised to Ollie, notably the lining and the colours of the waistcoat and tie.
The Morning Coat jacket and trousers is made in a Lear Brown & Dunsford cloth. The Waistcoat is made from a Holland & Sherry burgundy herringbone cloth and finally the shirt is made in a white twill.
The morning coat is a traditional 1 button peak lapels. The trousers, flat fronted with side button adjusters. Both are cut for a fitted look particularly the trousers.
The waist coat is a double breasted style with shawl lapel whilst the collar as a collar bar and tab.
The lining is printed especially for Ollie and features his Morgan car that was used to transport the happy couple from the church to the reception”
The detail of the suit was amazing, so I spent some time to make sure the lighting was correct. David has a great eye and its an honour to be photographing a quality designed suit.
