RIGHT ON TIME
In anticipation of the 24th film in the James Bond franchise, luxury watchmaker Omega has released a limited edition Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M timepiece. The Bond family coat of arms is repeatedly interlocked across the dial to create a distinctive pattern making the piece the only choice for an international man of mystery. Make this archetypal 007 accessory part of your Big Day ensemble.

WALK THIS WAY
Daniel Craig’s Bond may be the rough and ready type but if you’re a fan of the old school 007 look, you’ll love these patent leather shoes from Dolce & Gabbana. They’re the perfect formal shoes, whether you’re at your wedding reception or on a secret mission to save the world, £500.

SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED
The quintessential James Bond drink, as all fans know, is the medium-dry vodka martini. Although the spy never discloses the exact recipe of his famous tipple, but we think 6 parts vodka to 1 part vermouth with a sliver of lemon peel sounds about right. Make with English premium vodka Chase Vodka and raise a glass to Queen and country, £45.

UNDERCOVER AGENT
A hit with the ladies, James has always had a beautiful woman in his pocket. You may have found your leading lady, but this little helper from Paul Smith will hold all your cards, £110.

NEED FOR SPEED
Bond’s love story with the iconic Aston Martin DB5 began in the 1963 film Goldfinger, starring (arguably) the greatest 00 in history, Sean Connery. Hire this beautifully restored vintage silver birch model to make a wedding day arrival worthy of the legend himself.

RAISE A GLASS
Houseology’s Eva Solo Martini Glass is the perfect mix of style and substance - much like James Bond himself. Treat yourself to this piece of design-led glasswear, or present as a stag gift ahead of the wedding. If your groom is a fan, he won’t be disappointed! £25

MASCULINE SCENTS
Vibrating with raw, captivating masculinity, Lancome’s Hypnôse Homme Eau de Toilette reveals its sensuality in aromatic accords. Hypnôse Homme is created for the sophisticated man, in a bottle with clean lines and ingredients as sharp as a well-tailored suit. £52 for 75ml.

TAKE A BOW
A smart dinner suit is the classic Bond outfit, and nothing finishes the look off more than a slick black bow tie. We love this velvet version from Lanvin; it somehow sums up the suaveness and sophistication of James in one simple accessory. Wear with a tux to nail the look, £100.
