During a challenging time of pandemic-related wedding restrictions, I had the great joy of meeting and working with J&B – and supporting them in creating an intimate Spring elopement in the city of London, planned in just three months. I met them after they'd already gone through the heartbreak of two postponements due to COVID, unsure on how to make a little elopement for two feel just as special, and unwilling to wait any longer. This Hungarian-Greek couple of high school sweethearts decided to celebrate just the two of them with a day all about fun, togetherness, and all their favourite things of the city they now call home. We paid homage to their passion for architecture, and chose some really special historical buildings and neighborhoods for their civil ceremony, their photography, and their dinner – while leaving time for some spontaneous fun on the streets of London! Their priority was for their day to feel relaxed, slow, and joyous, and to feel fully present in enjoying every moment of the experience – as well as to have some wonderful images to share with their family. The gallery below is all of this and more – a day that was private and lively all at once, with moments for quiet embraces as the city bustled and twinkled all around them. So here they are, in all their glory, laughing and cuddling their way all over London, celebrating their love for this city and their roots - proving that the most special thing you can do to celebrate your marriage is just to be yourselves.
