I’m a strong believer that a groom and his mates are just as important as a bride and her girlfriends – but so often in this world of weddings, they are forgotten all about, left to their own devices while wedding vendors speak directly to the bride to be! I think that’s a little wrong… so you can understand why I was on a mission to create some high-quality Groom wedding inspiration for the groom and his crew – in a relaxed setting but with a touch of sophistication. So boys, here is a totally achievable idea for how to ask your groomsmen to be a part of your big day – plus a great excuse to drink whisky & smoke some cigars!

Here’s a glimpse into the manly fun we had that afternoon:

The location was out of this world, with the street art only adding to the masculine vibe we were aiming for… The Gathering Events caravan bar was the perfect accompaniment, serving Australian craft beers and top-shelf whiskies to our lucky gents!
