Stunning Stacey | A real Halfpenny London bride

Halfpenny London2 Comments

Beautiful bride Stacey and her gorgeous hubby tied the knot in August lat year in a classic, romantic wedding with a gorgeous blush colour scheme. Stacey had tried some dresses before coming to visit us but struggled to find exactly what she was looking for.

“Before visiting Halfpenny London, I visited two boutiques and tried on some beautiful dresses, but I didn’t ‘feel’ like me. I struggled to find something that was ‘classic’ but not boring, subtly sexy and still appropriate for a Catholic church wedding. The [Halfpenny London] boutique has a wonderful warm and cosy feel that puts you at ease the moment you step in the door. I felt like a little girl again playing dress up. I wanted to try on every dress in there and I still do!”

Stacey chose our Charlotte dress which was the perfect choice for her.

“I wanted a dress that was romantic, effortlessly elegant but still ‘cool’. The luxurious Italian silk draped so beautifully; it was dramatic without being too ‘fussy’. As soon as I tried it on I felt an emotional connection with the dress. I finally felt like a bride and I knew it was a dress that Giuseppe, my husband-to-be, would instantly recognise me in. The Charlotte dress doesn’t need any ‘bling’, but I did accessorise it with a cathedral length ‘blended’ veil (also form Halfpenny), the most comfortable Jimmy Choo shoes, a tiara from Dolecka and jewellery from my aunt as my ‘something borrowed’.”

Congratulations to the happy couple! Best wishes in your new lives together from all of us at Halfpenny London.

Love,

Kate & the Halfpennys xxx

Charlotte - Our Dress of the Week

Halfpenny LondonComment

We're working hard behind the scenes on the new Halfpenny London collection and I can't wait to share it with you!  You'll have to be patient a little longer so, in the meantime, I've decided to share my inspiration behind some of my favourite Halfpenny London wedding dresses and bridal separates.

The first dreamy dress of the week, is the gorgeous Charlotte Dress.  She is made from the most delicious luxury Italian Silk crepe and is just the perfect dress for any shaped body. So much so that I wore the same style corset top on my wedding day and I am a curvy girl. 

The full circle skirt with train floats effortlessly off your hips, and the draped bodice is just soft and perfect for a fuller bust and makes a smaller bust look marvellous too. The arm drapes can be tied as a halter neck or tied under the arm for the evening so your strapless. Style this dress with a veil and you have the epitome of British bridal elegance with a fashion sensibility. 

See this dress come to life on our gorgeous real bride Annabel, I love her floral crown!

Love,

Kate xx
