When it comes to a gift for your groom, you’ll know better than anyone just what he will appreciate most. Whether that’s a simple love letter marking the occasion of your marriage or an engraved watch to symbolise how precious is the time you spend together.

A painting, sculpture or a cast of your own faces in a kiss like this one below that was created for a couple’s wedding by London based artist Paul Stafford will look stunning in your home and be a real talking point for years to come.
