STOP Don’t scroll past. I’m encouraging us all to take 5 minutes and read this repost from the fabulous @halfpennylondon . . “I read the article by Tanya Gold in the @telegraph with dismay. I certainly wouldn’t live up to Ms Gold’s body standards and do you know what? I’m ok with that. I’m a size 22. I am healthy. I exercise. I am not pre-diabetic. I also wear sportswear. I completely agree we should look after our bodies but health doesn’t have a dress size. Ms Gold has made a huge assumption about everyone over a size 12 and it’s completely inappropriate. Some people will never have a body like a traditional shop mannequin no matter how hard they try. . I’ve spent the last 20 years dressing stunning women of all shapes and sizes and I honestly thought we were getting to a place in society where we’d moved on from talk like this. My entire philosophy is based on being the best version of YOURSELF. Not what someone else thinks you should be/look like. You are equally amazing whether you’re a size 10 or 24 or anything else. . I think it’s brilliant that @nike are being inclusive and showing you how their clothes look good on all bodies. . P.s. Nike, how did you get your hands on my measurements?? Your mannequin looks exactly like me. #heathdoesnothaveadresssize #nike #nikemannequin #plussize @Nike @nikewomen #tanyagold
I don’t think we’ll ever be over the dress our bride Lily wore on Saturday. This @joflemingdesign dress is not only bespoke and original but also unarguably absolutely striking. . We can’t wait to see the official photos of her wearing it..... not to mention the incredible ensemble worn by the groom! . Repost from @joflemingdesign using - Congratulations to Lily, who married this week 🥂❤️ Loved creating this vibrant design... so difficult to capture the shimmering kingfisher blue effect, achieved by layering sapphire tulle over iridescent jade silk organza, and the gorgeous bespoke folk art style embroidery in coral, geranium pink and leaf green really popped against the background...
After working on this weekend’s wedding it’s safe to say we have some incredible photos pending. But for now, here’s a little glimpse of the incredible colour palette. . Flowers by the incredible @misspickering
Happy 4th Wedding Anniversary to Benessamy couple Mae & Chris. We loved working on this wedding and we hope it will be a day they’ll never forget! We wish you many more years of happiness and love. . Photo by @eleritunstallphoto
How could we not repost this beautiful @britishvogue cover taken at the wedding of @idriselba and @sabrinaelba ... just WOW. What a beautiful couple and we wish them all the best in their marriage.. .
We can’t always rely on British weather to cooperate with special plans and so choosing an overseas destination is sometimes the best bet, especially if you want your celebration to be outside. Just in case you didn’t know, at Benessamy we specialise in Caribbean weddings so if you want to organise your wedding or special event on one of the many beautiful islands in the Caribbean, that is absolutely no problem. Who doesn’t love destination weddings?
Side by side with the ones you love. . All of your guests are so important to us so we will do our best to organise your day so that everyone is catered for from start to finish so you don’t have to worry about it. . Photo from Femi & Nike’s wedding taken by @t.philips
The venue is obviously hugely vital for ensuring the day is personal to you so we are always keeping up to speed with the best places for our clients to get married. . This photo of @woodhallspamanor was taken by @samhookphoto at Veronica & Chris’ wedding last year.
@fenty the label has just launched with @lvmh and we’re loving this white tailoring, perfect for a modern wedding day or a rehearsal dinner the night before! Beautiful, original and crisp.
