Beautiful bride Robyn married her lovely husband Tom in August in an outdoor wedding at Bignor Park in West Sussex. The ceremony was in a walled garden followed by drinks on the lawn then dinner in traditional pole tent.
"Halfpenny was my first stop. I went to one other shop after that just because I felt I should! I feel like I’d already decided on Halfpenny long before having seen all your beautiful dresses. I’d obsessed over the ones on the Bethnal Green Town Hall website. Being the only customer there is a big part of the experience. I love that part of town also having lived there when I first moved to London."
Robyn chose the Susie skirt with the Iris slip for the ceremony then changed into the Virginia Jacket for the evening.
"I tried to resist the jacket as long as possible, but in the end I succumbed and I had to have it... it has the same name as my mum after all. The fact that I had 4 outfits on the day was purely a bonus (skirt/slip, slip/jacket, slip/jacket/skirt & slip only for the dancefloor). A very high maintenance bride I was!"
"I can’t pin down why I knew it was the dress. I just loved it from the moment I put it on. It was so casually elegant. Fashions fade, style is eternal. I think that is what Halfpenny is all about."
Alongside her beautiful wedding band and engagement ring - both antique 1930s pieces - Robyn's finishing touches were a headband from Isobel Hind, rose gold and green amethyst earrings. Her something borrowed was a rose gold signet ring with a Victor Hugo quote, ‘love is the flower for which life is the honey’ belonging to her sister.
