Millie Mackintosh has shared details of her beautiful Halfpenny London bridal gown with her social media followers, as she enjoys her Greek honeymoon with her new husband Hugo Taylor. HELLO!'s current cover stars married at Whithurst Park in West Sussex and Millie has now revealed all about her bespoke wedding dress. Posting on her Instagram page, she told her fans about the dress designed for her by Kate Halfpenny, of British bridal brand Halfpenny London. Kate also shared details of the beautiful off-the-shoulder gown on her own Instagram account. The strapless white dress with detachable 'bubble' sleeves is truly stunning.
Millie posted: "It was such a dream to have a completely unique bespoke dress made. The whole journey working with Kate was so much fun. I never wanted to take the dress off after fittings! The details and the style just evolved creatively. I’m so in love with the double bubble sleeves. They’re light puffs of silk organza with a fine spotty tulle over the top and little tiny lace flowers hand appliquéd on. Thanking you darling @halfpennylondon and your fabulous team for making my vision come to life! Full feature out now in @hellomaguk."
Kate wrote: "We’re excited to share the gorgeous wedding of @milliemackintosh to @hugotaylorlondon. Millie wore a bespoke @halfpennylondongown last weekend that we worked on and designed together. It was made with stunning French lace, fine spotty tulle and silk organza. The flowers on the draped body and the double bubble sleeves were hand appliquéd. We complimented the look with a simple soft long plain tulle veil."
Millie and Hugo exclusively invited HELLO! Magazine inside their lavish wedding and told us: "The whole day has felt like an out-of-body experience. Even in my wildest dreams I didn’t imagine it would be this perfect. I am so excited to finally be married to Hugo – he’s the love of my life." "It’s been everything we dreamed of times a thousand," Hugo added. "I’ve never been happier."

Millie Mackintosh and Hugo Taylor are on honeymoon in Greece
Stars including Spencer Matthews – Hugo’s best man – and his pregnant wife Vogue Williams attended the nuptials, as well as Jodie Kidd, Poppy Delevingne, former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, model Zara Martin and Made in Chelsea stars Rosie Fortescue, Jamie Laing and Oliver Proudlock. The ceremony itself was a religious blessing as the couple had married three days previously in an official service at Chelsea Old Town Hall in London, attended only by close family, but their big day in West Sussex was a more traditional affair.
