  1. Earlier this year I was asked to help with the ties for a wedding to be held in a wild flower meadow in Vermont this summer. The colour scheme was to be blues with grey and white. The brides had already chosen the flowers for her bouquet - an assortment of thistle, lambs ear, peonies, greens. The bridesmaids were going to be wearing navy, as were the groom and the groomsmen. 

    The idea was for all the men to wear a different, but complementary, Liberty print tie. The bride had already found four prints she liked but needed a total of nine different prints so we spent a little time looking at the options - the final nine certainly should be a wow on the big day!

    some of the prints were already part of the CatkinJane collection, but making these added six new florals to the range

  2. One of the recent custom wedding orders I have had the pleasure of making was a mix of floral Liberty print bow ties, with matching pocket squares and cufflinks.
    Gorgeous splashes of colour for the groom and groomsmen.

    Some of the bow ties were already available on the website but a couple were special requests - I am always happy to make up any of the Liberty fabrics you see on the website in whatever form of neckwear you prefer.
    These bow ties were all pre-tied but all the Liberty print bow ties are also available as self-tie

    For each bow tie and pocket square there was also a matching pair of cufflinks made from the Liberty tana lawn.

    As I usually do, I have now added these new bow ties to the website if you would like on too - you will find them in the Liberty print bow ties section of the website
