Gorgeous Leanne | A real Halfpenny London bride

Kate Halfpenny2 Comments

I was thrilled to see beautiful bride Leanne’s wedding featured over on Love My Dress. Leanne had quite a journey in finding her dream dress… Her Halfpenny London Ivy skirt and Gordon top combo was actually her second wedding outfit. She’d had the first made by another designer but 10 days out from the wedding decided it wasn’t right for her so came to us instead. We pulled out all the stops to get Leanne’s outfit made in time for her big day and all that effort paid off as look how happy she is!

Read more about her story and see the full gallery over on Love My Dress.

I do love a happy ending! Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Love,

Stunning Hannah | A real Halfpenny London bride

Kate HalfpennyComment

Beautiful bride Hannah married her beau in October last year. The couple tied the knot in the Catskills in upstate New York in a pair of beautiful, restored barns. The ceremony and cocktail hour were outside, set against the stunning foliage that the area is known for in October, letting the beautiful natural setting be the main focus.

Hannah chose the Daffodil top and Ivy skirt which she purchased from our lovely stockist, The One Bridal Boutique in NYC.

“I had been to a few appointments before but hadn’t found any dress that I was in love with. My sister in law actually found Halfpenny on Instagram and sent me a photo of a dress noting there was a boutique in NYC that carried the brand. I called Sue at The One without realising she wasn’t even open yet, and she let me come in and try the dresses on. I was her very first customer!

I chose the Daffodil top and Ivy skirt. I wanted a unique dress that also had a beautiful and classic silhouette and the pairing of these together was the perfect combination. I loved the shape and how comfortable the two pieces were together. The fringe brought a more relaxed, fun and whimsical element to the dress, given the rustic setting of the wedding I didn’t want anything too stuffy or rigid in material and style.“

I’m completely in love with Hannah’s entire wedding! Everything from the autumnal flowers to her burgundy velvet Aquazzura pumps. Delicious!

Congratulations to the happy couple and we wish you every happiness in your new adventures!

Love,

Beautiful Nic | A real Halfpenny London bride

Kate HalfpennyComment

Our gorgeous bride Nic and her lovely hubby Olly tied the knot in September this year in a stunning church ceremony. The couple wanted the wedding to be a real reflection of both their personalities and I think they’ve succeeded spectacularly.

“Our main aim for the wedding was to be a reflection of us both, so in some respects the styling of the wedding was a bit of a mix-match, but this reflects my own personal style in fashion and interior style too. Our home is a mix-match of colour, textures, patterns and style so I didn't have strict rules about everything matching for the wedding, I have a good eye for putting different things together and knowing they will work together in the end.”

Nic chose our Daffodil Top, and Ivy Skirt for her big day and she is a Halfpenny bride through and through!

“I was both excited and super nervous about finding THE dress. I love fashion, I'm really particular about my own style, and with doing a lot of styling for my job, I knew the pressure was on to find something amazing and maybe unexpected! I bought my dress form The White Room Bridal in Sheffield. They love the Kate Halfpenny dresses there, they were so knowledgeable about the brand that it felt like I was getting the full Halfpenny experience.”

“I never expect to end up with a top and skirt but I loved the end look. The dress was so comfy, so stylish and so unusual. It ticked every box for me. I actually saw a photo of my dress on Instagram and I had a really strong feeling that would be the one, and it was love at first sight. I adored it on the hanger and even more so when I tried it on."

I love Nic’s choice of paired back colour scheme and that amazing bouquet! Receiving my brides’ wedding pictures never fails to thrill me and this wedding was just so special.

Congratulations to the newlyweds! We wish you every happiness in your new adventures together!
