Lauren and Paul had a quiet and intimate wedding at Hackney Town Hall with just their parents and siblings a few family and friends, followed by a trip to one of their favourite local pubs, the Commercial Tavern, to meet up with a few friends and then a family dinner at The Hawksmoor in Spitalfields. Lauren says,

“We knew we wanted to celebrate in a bigger way at some point, so hosted a party for family and friends on our first wedding anniversary. We basically stretched the wedding celebrations out as long as we could!”
