Stunning Joanna | A real Halfpenny London bride
Gorgeous bride Joanna married her handsome beau David in the beautiful, picturesque lakelands of Fermanagh, a county on the Northern Irish border where Joanna grew up. Both her parents and Grandparents were married in the small Holy Trinity Church at Crom so the venue was particularly special for Joanna.
"After a surprise engagement trip to Norway, David and I set ourselves the task of planning our wedding in 6 months, to fit around my university studies. David thought our tight time scale would require sacrifices in the planning process, but I was determined to make sure the day would be full of special details which allowed our personalities to shine through. Thankfully, all the cards fell into place to make that possible. We had a wonderful team of family and friends who helped with so many aspects of the day, and it was incredibly special to enter the church and see so many of our friends and family from all walks of life and different parts of the world gathered together. Needless to say, we had a wonderful day, full of smiles, music and a bit of Irish dancing thrown in for good measure!"
"Due to the time scale of our planning, I knew one of the first things that had to be ordered was my wedding dress. I did my homework and within two days of fittings I had found the perfect combination, thanks to the help of the beautiful designers and staff at Halfpenny London. Their outfits have a mix and match approach, and after I fell in love with the delicate detail of the climbing floral embroidery of the sheer tulle skirt we paired it with the sheer Iris slip, and the long sleeved draped backline top was the perfect final addition to deal with the unpredictable Northern Irish weather. My accessories reflected my love of colour and I paired the dress with a comfy pair of mid-heel antique mustard shoes from Hobbs."
"David gave me his great-grandmother’s antique emerald and diamond engagement ring which set the tone of our other jewellery purchases. My aunt, Rosalind Burleigh works at the jewellers T A Mercer, from whom we purchased my wedding ring and they resized my late-fathers wedding ring for David, which had been bought from Rosalind at the same jewellers many moons before."
Such a beautiful story... It brought a tear to my eye. I love everything about this fabulous couple's wedding and these pictures by Salt & Sea Photography Co. captured it perfectly.
Congratulations to the newlyweds! We wish you every happiness in your new lives together.
