Soul singer and founding member of JLS, Oritsé Williams recently married Kazz Kumar in a stunning sunset wedding in Jamaica covered by Hello! Magazine. We feel so honoured that Oritsé chose our Rose Sunset Fedora to wear on this memorable occasion.
You can see the Hello! Magazine feature here and their gorgeous video from the day here. 

The wedding ceremony was delayed by a tropical storm, but it ended up happening in spectacular sunset light with Kazz Kumar looking absolutely stunning in a champagne gown by Indian designer Rohit Verma.

Oritsé Williams drops in…

We make quite a few bespoke wedding hats, including one for Troy Redfern . We also get sent photos from our customers wearing their Vera Black hats at their weddings – we love receiving these! But Vera really enjoyed the challenge of making a rockstar hat for such a high profile wedding.

“I was approached by Oritsé’s stylist just before the JLS tour and she bought loads of different pieces for him to wear on tour. I think the originality of the accessories really started to become a part of his identity. A few monthes later another stylist reached out to source another hat – The Nomad Fedora – for Oritsé for the Khush Bridal Magazine shoot with Kazz.”

“Not long after that Oritsé got in touch personally as he wanted to get a hat and some other accessories for his secret wedding in Jamaica. Oritsé insisted he come pick up it personally and check out the workshop. He felt really invested in our brand and wanted to know who we were, what we are all about and where the magic happens.

“Our workshop is a little garage attached to the side of our house, so when someone comes to see the business they get a whole peek inside our lives, baby toys and all.

“I met Oritsé outside on the driveway as he exited his car, he looked super stylish, he was warm, welcoming and gave me a big hug. We immediately hit it off chatting like old friends catching up. I think we chatted for half an hour before we even made it into the workshop. I think like most people visiting Vera Black HQ, Oritsé was impressed at the humbleness of our small garage studio. With only three of us, most of the time making up the Vera Black Team. I think a lot of people envision a huge warehouse with lots of staff, but it’s just us in this tiny space.”

“Luke and myself chatted with Oritsé for hours about our past music careers; our journey’s through life, everything. He is just a really cool easy guy to chat to

Oritsé and I will be collaborating on a hat which we’ll be launching soon, we are very excited about this…it will be available for our customers to buy and own for themselves, we’ll share more about this soon.”

But it’s not the first time Vera has worked with Oritsé Williams as he has a number of our hats including our El Capitan Fedora that he wore at the Jingle Bell Ball.
