Civil Ceremonies

Civil Ceremonies

You’ve chosen a sensational venue, you’ve booked the Rolls Royce or horse-drawn carriage and now need to hire or rent suits so that you and your party look your very best for this special day.

Hiring morning wear, sometimes referred to as grooms wear or wedding wear, for a civil ceremony couldn’t be simpler with Bartlett & Butcher.

As hire wear specialists with more than 50 years experience, we provide an extensive range of top quality suits for a civil ceremony.

Our quality is second to none, our service unbeatable and our prices extremely competitive. We can offer:

Morning dress

Hire morning wear or grooms wear with a traditional black pure wool herringbone tailcoat, dove grey or buff waistcoat and striped trousers, shirt, cravat or tie.

Mohair morning coats are available in several shades of grey, silver or navy. The silver and grey mohair tailcoats come with matching trousers whereas the navy has striped trousers, a striped waistcoat is optional.

Frockcoats come in black and Lincoln green. Frockcoats are a variation of the morning coat and have a square front whereas a morning coat has a sweeping cutaway front. These are worn with striped trousers and a striped waistcoat is optional. Our frockcoats have silk faced lapels and, because they are worn open, a silk toggle to fasten the front.

Brocade waistcoats come in every colour, fabric and design imaginable.

Alternative civil ceremony wear

For a stylish alternative and perhaps just for the groom and sometimes the best man, hire white suits or a brocade Nehru jacket.
