Su and Mark’s Hackney engagement


Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and New Year with the people you love and that you are well rested for the year ahead.

The festive season is one of the most popular times of the year for a special certain question to be asked and this year has been no different… I have seen lots of engagement announcements on facebook already and I am super excited that my brother-in-law Mark proposed to the lovely Su in the gorgeous setting of The Perch in Oxford just before Christmas.

Yesterday we caught up with them to celebrate, and of course to take their engagement photos.  Whilst walking through East London we came across the lovely twinkly lights outside Hackney Town Hall so here is a sneaky peek! Their wedding plans are naturally in their early stages but I can’t wait for their wedding, I know it will be fun with what I’m sure will be quirky twists and lots of laughs.

If you know anyone who has recently got engaged, why not tell them about me, I would love to hear from them and all about their engagement and their wedding plans.  For now, please take a look at their Hackney engagement photos.
