Full Description
Halo & Wren is located on the Historic cobbled High Street of Old Town, Hemel Hempstead. HALO & WREN provides wedding apparel for the effortlessly cool bride with a thoughtfully curated selection of designers and a fun,unpretentious vibe, we offer a fresh alternative to mainstream bridal boutique. We believe that a bride's wedding day look should be an extension of her personality and make her feel like the most elevated version of her everyday self. Our selection of gowns and accessories are a reinvention of the traditional - still timelessly beautiful but unique and relaxed. Our looks are seasonless and special, just like the brides who wear them. Halo & Wren's Designer's have been handpicked from around the world to offer the most unique choice of affordable designer gowns. Our Bride is the Bride 'Who doesn't want to look like everyone else', the Relaxed Bride who wants the Bridal Buying journey to be special, intimate and represent her as the Modern Bride. Halo & Wren was opened after my own personal struggle to find an affordable fashion forward designer gown, after visiting Bridal Boutiques locally and London based I felt either marginalised with her seemingly 'small budget' at the cool London stores or disappointed with the traditional repetitive bridal gown styles and Bridal Boutique looks locally. I was today's Modern Bride; access to the never ending range of amazing yet unobtainable gowns on Pinterest and Instagram. HALO & WREN is styled to be so modern and pretty with relaxed vibes filled with the very best gowns from a selection of the coolest INdependent Designers from around the world; MARQUISE BRIDAL ATELIER, EMMY-MAE BRIDAL & JANE HILL BRIDAL from Australia, RIKI DALAL from Israel, REMBO DESIGNS from Belgium, MARTA MARTI from SPAIN,E&W COUTURE from Wales and Finally our one Big Brand WATTERS WTOO & WILLOWBY from the USA.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Jemma
Brides to Be, I can only tell you that HALO & WREN has been created based on my own Bridal Shopping Experience, HALO & WREN is everything I didnt get when I was a Bride. It is the prettiest shop ever, styled in Pink yet achingly cool white interior with Copper rails &Neon signs, it's a Modern Brides dream shop but the best thing about HALO & WREN is the gowns. HALO & WREN is not your average Bridal boutique, HALO & WREN Brides are not your average Brides.

Catherine & Alex Say I do
I had decided before I even went to my dress appointment at Halo and Wren, before I was even engaged that it would be the only shop I would visit to find my dress. I just knew, I would find the dress I wanted and I did! I only tried on 8 dresses and in the mix of those 8 dresses, I found my dream dress. With a little tweaking, my dress fully matched my vision and Jemma made this happen for me! I also have my veil embroidered which was all sorted by Jemma and it is just stunning. Jemma seriously knows it all! The shop, the dresses, the service - it’s excellent! I highly recommend halo and wren. Jemma doesn’t just provide beautiful dresses, she also provides support. I messaged Jemma and still do message Jemma asking a variety of things not just about my wedding dress that now sits in a dry cleaners (the dry cleaners Jemma recommended) but about when I’m going to move on from these wedding blues and she is always able to answer. Oh and Jemma also offers a floofing service. On my wedding day Jemma turnt up and gave my dress the floofing that my bridesmaids were too afraid to give it. Seriously, I can not fault Jemma or halo and wren. It’s a phenomenal service and a must!!!!

Had the best experience at Halo & Wren, you're made to feel extra special with Jemma focusing on just yourself...with an added glass of bubbly. She was always there when I needed to something or to ask a question. Always felt welcomed

FAQ
(9)

What is your most memorable wedding?

It has to be my own wedding, our wedding was a real reflection of our personalities. It was incredibly relaxed, yet glamorous. But mainly because my own bridal gown buying experience was the reason I opened HALO & WREN.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Modern, Understated, Elegant, Fashionable

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am most proud of how HALO & WREN attracts HALO & WREN Brides, which means that Brides are choosing to visit Halo & Wren because they know what they are going to find; 'The One' at Halo & Wren.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Rule of 3 I highly recommend couples planning their wedding follow the 3 rule, only visit three venue's, speak to three services, three suppliers, visit three dress shops e.t.c. Wedding planning can be so overwhelming; I almost convinced myself because of the effect of Pinterest that I needed a carousel 5 days before my wedding.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

It's only a very small one, but a wedding of friends, they named the tables after their children, their friends children and close family's children. It still makes my heart smile.

What do you love most about your job?

My Brides, meeting them, knowing when they walk in the door I am going to find 'the One' for them and then seeing them getting married and knowing how amazing they'll feel and how insanely stunning they'll look in their gown.

What is your favourite style of wedding dress?

I don't have a favourite, I love every style! However I am drawn to a modern style of gown, relaxed unique styles that are unforgettable.

What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?

I like the idea of adding a something chic like a blue suede bow onto your heels, particularly if you have purchased a white or ivory pair of shoes.

What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?

Probably one of my gowns Marquise Bridal Atelier's Monique Tee Shirt with an Open Back and a coordinating Silk Skirt, currently in store.
