Beautiful Ashley | A real Halfpenny London bride

Beautiful bride Ashley and her lovely new hubby tied the knot in June this year with a lush, summery party surrounded by all of their favourite people. Described as a ‘Frida Kahlo garden party with an indie disco’ this wedding sounds right up my street! It was full of greenery, sangria, cocktails, piñata-hitting in place of cake cutting and lots of dancing!

“Halfpenny was recommended by a friend, but I had already seen Kate’s designs and adored how modern yet timeless they were. I had seen dresses at a show as well, and they were absolutely unique. The shop did not disappoint, with an intimate boutique feel; the staff treat each appointment very privately and personally. I actually had a few appointments since I was buying separate pieces, and the team were brilliant at giving advice, applying no pressure to the process, and clearly knowing their way around the dresses themselves – understanding the make, patterns and fits. The entire process was really dreamy and I would recommend [the Halfpenny] team just as fast as I’d recommend the beautiful dresses.”

Ashley chose our Palm skirt and Laura top for the ceremony and changed into a cami for the evening.

“I never thought I would go with anything two-piece, and always thought I wanted lace sleeves, but I couldn’t get over how gorgeous the laser-cut palm skirt was. I knew I wanted the Laura top from the first time I saw it. It is so unique, and an ultra elegant touch to top off a skirt that was a bit more fun. I loved the way it fell, and the way it came together with the top, it just felt right for me. I can’t wait to wear that again with some tuxedo trousers. I loved so many of the pieces at Halfpenny, and would have gotten two or three if I could have!”

Ashley looks incredible on her big day and I love the flower crown! The colourful blooms by Moss & Stone in Suffolk are perfect and I just adore these gorgeous pictures by The Smiths Photography. They capture the sheer joy and love of the day.

Huge congratulations to the newlyweds! We wish you every happiness in your new adventures together.

Lots of love,
