Ready for the beautiful Great Central Railway wedding of Karl and Hannah? Yes! Me too! And what a treat their steam train wedding was.

Karl and Hannah love vintage and railways, so their railway wedding venue was a match made in heaven. They went all in with gorgeous DIY wedding decorations in greens and yellows. Meanwhile, Hannah wore a tea-length dress perfect for spinning in and Karl donned a blue tweed suit. Didn’t they look stunning?

You won’t want to miss the steam carousel, the train ride and the gorgeous portraits on the platform. Wow.

Thanks so much to EKR Pictures for sharing with us these totally magical images.
