Gorgeous bride Camilla and her beau tied the knot this September in Cripps barn, a beautiful, Cotswold barn set in rural surroundings with flagstone floors, high ceilings and a huge fire place. Magical!
"My experience prior to visiting Halfpenny London was a little underwhelming. I left each appointment feeling more and more confused by the mass of different designers and styles.I LOVED my appointments at Halfpenny London. Firstly, the boutique is absolutely beautiful! It’s like stepping into a treasure trove filled with lace and tulle and sparkly things… I wanted to try EVERYTHING.
"I actually fell in love with two dresses. I was set on the Violet Full French lace but then the Dita caught my eye and I had to try it. They are two very different dresses but equally beautiful. My bridesmaids were extremely patient and humoured my contestant ‘which one would you go for?!’ phone calls!
"Ultimately the Dita made me feel the more bridal of the two, I loved the way it moved and how it fit me. It made me feel like a princess (a cliché but I think we secretly all want to feel that way on our wedding days) but still had the modern, cool feel that all of the Halfpenny dresses have. The beaded bustier was just exquisite, I hadn’t seen anything like it before. From a far it almost looks like lace. When I didn’t want to take it off I knew it was the one."
Congratulations Camilla! We wish you both every happiness in your new lives together!
Kate & the Halfpennys xx
