MTM Wedding Suit: Redmayne 1860 or Norton & Sons?

Hey everyone, I'm looking for a summer navy suit to wear to my wedding, but also something that I can wear to future events or big days at work. I'm about 6ft 187lbs, athletic build, so bit bigger on the thighs and chest/shoulders.

I really want an English cut/experience, similar to the A&S style. I've spent months researching online different tailors. Also visited most the shops on the Row.
Budget is around £2K so looking at MTM.

Narrowed it down to 2 (based on online reviews, reputation, style etc.)

Norton & Rose MTM £2,100 - not really discussed on these forums at all. Had a friendly chat when I visited the store. I'm not sure if the MTM offering is something new since they were recently bought out by the owners of Cad & The Dandy (whom I've already ruled out). Maybe it's the same India workshop, anyone tried it?

Redmayne MTM £1,650 (or Acclaim £2,095) - a few discussions in the A&S thread. Tom has a great reputation. Not sure if it's worth extra for the Acclaim?

Please let me know if you have any suggestions. I've also considered P Johnson, but I could get that back home in Australia so not as exciting for me.
