Halfpenny London

We are such stuff As dreams are made on

I must admit that a little part of me always dreamed of being able to spend an unlimited amount of money on a wedding dress; but fate can be a cruel mistress, and consequently, the blasted spread sheet dictates otherwise.
BUT, as Cinderella sang, ‘perhaps someday, the dream that I wish will come true’.  Well, it came true for me for 45 minutes when I booked an appointment to visit Halfpenny London.

Kate Halfpenny, the eponymous founder of Halfpenny London was a bride herself last year and I think this really translates through her designs. She has a fundamental understanding of what every little girl dreams her wedding dress will be like.

Halfpenny’s designs have a timeless elegance and are simple, yet intricate, encapsulating a celebration of the female form. In particular, I especially like that many of the designs are in fact tops and skirts, tied in the middle with a sash. Ingenious – and incredibly comfortable!

I did have to tell a teensy white lie when I visited the boutique – I may have enhanced my budget just so I could try on some of the particularly exquisite designs (The Halfpenny London Collection starts at £2,250 with Couture starting at £5,000). But it was worth it.

The company has recently relocated to Bloomsbury and the latest collection is simply stunning. The dresses possess a rare transcendence – utterly unparalleled by any other bridal designer of the moment.

Kate Halfpenny has the power to make bridal dreams come true. And here's why:
