A Little Hackney Wedding With A Bride In Her Grandmother’s Dress

Little Hackney Wedding by Laura McCluskey

Today’s wedding is a super sweet little Hackney wedding. Sarah and Aaron kept their wedding all about their marriage by just having a simple town hall registry office wedding at the location that they first met each other, followed by a few drinks with their closest friends and family. It’s so adorable to see a couple get ready together with their family, and a day that’s just about the marriage, no frills! In keeping with the low-key feel to the day, Sarah wore not just any vintage dress, but her own Grandmother’s which fitted her like a glove, how romantic is that…

From the bride Sarah: We got married one year to the day that we met near Hackney Town Hall. Originally, we were going to elope but decided to have a small ceremony with close family. Essentially, we just wanted to get married, so the details actually weren’t that important to us other than we wanted to stay close to the places around Hackney where we had our first date and keep the day as relaxed as possible!

My dress belonged to my grandma (her evening dress, she wore it with an emerald green stole). It was meant to be, fitted me perfectly without alterations!

Thanks for sharing such a small and special day Sarah and Aaron and to Laura for capturing it perfectly.

A Finnish Elopement in London

Finnish Elopement in London

What’s just so wonderful about London is all the many couples that come from near and far who choose the city as the destination for their wedding. Sometimes this means a big party with friends and family from all over the world, but other times it’s all about a simple ‘I do’, just the two of you, like today’s London elopement.

There’s no details to be seen here, no cake, no dancing until the small hours but there’s just something so very lovely about seeing this pair of newlyweds enjoying their special day with each other in this incredible city and yet even more beautiful as they begin their adventures with a soon-to-be new arrival, as Outi is the most radiant pregnant bride…

Outi and Nico eloped from Finland and were married at The Finnish Church in London, just the two of them and their photographer Cecelina to capture the moments. Outi looked incredibly radiant as a pregnant bride in her beautiful Seraphine dress with just a simple bouquet that she made herself. After their ceremony, they took to the iconic areas of London for some gorgeous portrait photos which I adore and I’m sure will be treasured for years to come especially after their new arrival is here!

I hope you enjoy this sweet little wedding, a lovely reminder that small can be beautiful!
