Debbie’s wedding hair accessories have graced many fabulous wedding fairs and shows over the years, and one of the most prestigious of those events has to be Brides The Show which took place over the weekend.

This event is THE place to go to see top-name designers from every section of the wedding industry. Whether you’re looking for a super-special gown or accessory, searching for ideas to help you plan the look of your day, or want advice from experts in their bridal field, Brides The Show is the perfect place to get serious inspiration for your special day.

One of my stockists, Halfpenny London, took a stand at the London event and took along a selection of my headpieces to showcase to visiting brides, alongside their absolutely stunning gowns, including some new designs which I had never seen before.

These were genuinely some of the most beautiful wedding gowns I have ever seen, with some really spectacular fabrics, shapes and textures and I can’t wait to see the first pictures of their brides wearing them - hopefully with some of my designs!

As a little taster, below are a few of my bridal hair accessories teamed with gowns designed by Kate Halfpenny, the super-talented celebrity stylist and designer behind the Halfpenny London brand and London boutique.
