Stunning Samantha | A real Halfpenny London bride

Gorgeous bride Samantha and her hubby Ian tied the knot just over a year ago at the Castello Dei Vicari in Tuscany, Italy, followed by a reception at Parco Dei Platani in San Ruffino. I was blown away by these beautiful pictures when they landed in my inbox and I’m thrilled we were able to play a small part in this special couple’s big day.

Samantha came to visit us at our Bloomsbury boutique to find the dress of her dreams. She was sure she wanted a dress rather than separates but she remained open minded which turned out to work in her favour!

“As soon as I saw the skirt and top it just felt like ‘me’. I went by myself to around 8 boutiques and tried on many different styles (around 50 dresses altogether!) and I liked lots of them. I never got the feeling that I had found ‘the one’ though, so I kept on searching. When I tried the top and skirt combination at Halfpenny, I knew the search was over as I felt so comfortable and unpretentious in it. I wasn’t even going to try it as I’d decided against a two-piece, but I’m so glad they suggested I try it on in the boutique.”

I’m glad too because it was the perfect choice for Samantha. As an added bonus, the high-low Georgie skirt allowed her to showcase her fabulous shoes!

“I’m a real shoe person and as my dress was a lot shorter at the front, the shoes were really important to me as you’d be able to see them clearly. In the end I went for a pair of red suede Tamara Mellon heels, and changed into a pair of Chiara Ferragnisneakers for dancing in the evening.”

Congratulations Samantha and Ian! We wish you all the love and luck in your new lives together.

Love,

Kate & the Halfpennys xxx
