A sweet and simple Hackney wedding, planned in just a week it was a low-key but utterly heartfelt day with a beaming bride and groom celebrating in a local cafe with their family and friends and their little boy.

Lizi and Gideon had a lovely personal wedding ceremony in Hackney followed by a cosy Autumn London pub wedding. Lizi chose a beautifully unique original 1940s vintage dress from Elizabeth Avey and along with the berry toned florals created by close family, some twinkling lights, a hint of metallic made this the perfect Autumn London wedding.
The story behind today’s lovely couple Will and Soula is certainly one to melt the hearts! They were childhood sweethearts in London when they were just 12 years old, though 20 years passed as she moved away but then then they just so happened to be brought back together when they discovered they were living just across the street to each other. Just over a year later and they were engaged to be married. Don’t you just love it how fate has a way sometimes…
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.

Of course we all love to swoon over details details and more details, but in fact, we should all remember that a wedding is about a marriage and I really do enjoy seeing this more than anything. This intimate and casual East London wedding of Marina and Adrian reminded me – it’s about two people, and their friends and family all celebrating their love. I think photographer Lisa-Jane captures the complete essence of this Hackney Town Hall wedding, with lots of love and laughter and a very radiant bride and groom…
