Beautiful Halfpenny bride Chloe tied the knot in April this year in a stunning seaside ceremony in Tulum, Mexico. The couple chose a small, boutique hotel, Nest, on their favourite beach as the setting for their intimate yet luxurious rustic wedding.
Chloe chose our Iris classic dress after my sister had treated her to our Brides Magazine reader event at the Ritz in May 2016 where she picked out the Iris Classic as her favourite!
"I first came to Halfpenny with my Mum and sister one evening; the shop is beautiful, just like the dresses, and the whole experience was great. On my second appointment, I was lucky enough to meet Kate, which was a fabulous way to make a decision on THE dress! I chose the Iris Classic dress with Iris Slip and narrow satin belt because it felt modern, yet vintage and romantic in style. I fell in love with the detail, the low back, the drop waist, the satin buttons… The lightweight fabrics were essential for getting married in a hot country and the tulle made it feel like something special (which looked great on the sand!)
"I felt completely myself in it. The dress seemed to echo my personality. This was also the only dress that my Mum and sister, who came with me to most of my bridal appointments, got emotional about seeing me in (but, importantly, I didn’t know this until afterwards, so it truly was meant to be!)"
Chloe decided against wearing a veil and chose to wear a beautiful flower crown instead. She chose an elegant, organically shaped bouquet of peonies, Davis Austin roses, spray roses and ranunculus which completed the romantic look perfectly.
Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish you every happiness in your new adventures together and thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures with us.
