Bride in Halfpenny Wedding Dress with Embellished Belt for an Italian Destination Wedding

Pack your bags as we’re off to Leece Italy today for the gorgeous destination wedding of Greek Cypriot George to his beautiful bride Melissa from the UK. Melissa wowed all in a Halfpenny wedding dress and looked like a goddess amongst the clear blue skies, stunning views and quaint wedding venue. The couple enjoyed traditional Puglia food, dance to live music and had the time of their lives. Keep your eye out for the Mother of the bride’s amazing headdress and a wedding guest dead ringer for Gwyneth Paltrow too!

WHAT MADE OUR DAY UNIQUE

“The day was the most magical ever. It was so special to feel the love of so many family and friends during the ceremony and the celebrations after. “ – Melissa & George

Halfpenny Wedding Dress

Melissa looked at various dress designers but immediately knew that Halfpenny were the ones to design her dream dress! The staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Her gown was a gorgeous slip, with a removable lace bodice and exquisite belt detail which she removed for the evening reception. Add an all-white hydrangea bouquet and a romantic bridal up do finished with fresh flowers and you have the dreamiest of bridal looks to swoon over.

INSPIRATION & STYLING

“The wedding had many traditional elements while also feeling modern and very relaxed. The styling took inspiration from beautiful southern mediterranean sandstone buildings. The flowers were stunning and brought the venue to life, creating a magical setting.” – Melissa & George

Melissa and George enlisted the help of Eleonora, the owner of Masseria Borgo Mortella to help them plan their Italian destination wedding. She was invaluable in translating between suppliers and keeping everything organised. They couldn’t have done it without her.
