Gorgeous Leah | A real Halfpenny London bride

Beautiful bride Leah and her new husband Harry married last September in the beautiful setting of Bruisyard Hall, Saxmundham which was perfect for their autumn inspired celebrations which included a few nods to Leah’s family’s Caribbean roots.

Leah came to see us at our Bloomsbury boutique and chose a stellar combination of our Andrea corset and feathered Swan skirt. 

“I was quite keen on finding a dress that had something a little different and quirky about it, but still wanted it to feel bridal. In a previous job I’d worked round the corner from Halfpenny and had walked past it most days. When Harry and I got engaged I knew that I wanted to try on Halfpenny dresses as the ones I’d seen fitted my brief perfectly.

“I went to Halfpenny with my mum (who was surprisingly excited given her general lack of enthusiasm for dresses) and one of my bridesmaids. I instantly fell in love with the Andrea corset. It was so beautiful but unbelievably comfortable. I decided to stick with that and try on the different skirts on offer. They were all incredibly dreamy and beautiful, but there was something so special about the Swan. I felt like I hadn’t seen anything similar before, yet it wasn’t so out there that it didn’t look like a wedding dress. Bridesmaid Becky encouraged me to try on a sash, which I had originally been against (I was worried that I’d look a little bit too much like a little girl at first holy communion), but it brought the top and the skirt together perfectly.”

These gorgeous images by Him & Her Photography are so full of love and laughter!  I absolutely adore them and you can see the full gallery over on Love My Dress here.

Congratulations Leah & Harry!  We wish you all the very best in your new adventures together.
