Sophia Webster always dazzles with her electric accessories, and her wedding look was just as unconventionally breathtaking. For the rustic glam wedding in East London she entrusted her friend, Danish designer Morten Underbjerg, to create her dress: a custom mini dress with sheer overlay and iridescent polka dots.

For the walk down the aisle Hayley wore a long-sleeved, flower-embroidered illusion gown in lavender with a floor-length sparkling veil.
