April shows us in true style that less is more in her simple silk wedding dress. April and Sam initially wanted to elope in New York. But due to Covid were unable to, so they packed up their things and headed to London from Norwich to tie the knot at Old Marylebone Town Hall. Where they had an epic but low key, celebration and spent the day exploring the city. Letting love lead the way for their intimate elopement.


A simple silk wedding dress for an autumn elopement in London


Our wedding plans changed with the 2020 times. From a fancy NYC Elopement. To a lower-key London Elopement mid-November, to a 17-hour notice reschedule the day before National Lockdown! Our incredible venue called to ask if we could have our Ceremony the next morning, as our original date was during Lockdown 2.0. So, we got the tube to our tiny ceremony at 8am and spent the rest of the day just us two and our epic photographer Darina Stoda exploring London together.

April and Sam

Our favourite moment was the ceremony. And finally getting married after the challenges of 2020. The vibe was low-key, intimate and fun. We just wanted a tiny relaxed ceremony, some epic photos to remember the day by and most of all we wanted to have fun. Our styling was always based around a city break where we wanted to be comfortable and feel like 'us' - but also look our best.

Love and fun led the way for April and Sam's autumn elopement

It was important to April and Sam that they relaxed and had fun. And April's dress reflected that too. Even when the brides' simple silk wedding dress got stuck in an escalator, it only added to the fun of their celebration.
