Yes, a Swiss Half Fare Card would most probably be your best option. However, I recommend to combine it with a Swiss Transfer Ticket: the so-called "Swiss Transfer Ticket with Swiss Half Fare Card Combi". The Swiss Transfer Ticket gets you a free ride from Zurich to Wengen and back, and the Swiss Half Fare Card is included as an add-on product for half the regular price. All in all you save a bit more that way, than with just a Swiss Half Fare Card. Most online prices are considerably lower than in Switzerland right now, so that's where you'd best buy. In your case, as a UK resident, you can get the ticket through the Swiss Railways UK webshop here.
Just to be sure, you can also have a look at the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland. It includes many cable cars and cogwheel trains around Wengen for free, so you can simply board without buying a ticket first. Please find all about it here, download the map, and compare it to the ticket I recommended above. See here for a detailed example on how to work out which option is cheaper.
Have a wonderful time in Wengen!
