As locations go, it's hard to find anywhere as industrial and as rich in creative communities as East London. Serena and Han have made Hackney their home and, before they head off to Italy to get married, they wanted some photographs in and around their neighbourhood to celebrate this exciting time in their lives. 

They invited me into their beautiful home and then showed me around the local streets and coffee shops. Whole streets looked completely different since my last visit to the area as vivid new art works had appeared on their walls. 

I came away having really enjoyed my time with Serena and Han and with a long list of eateries to try out!
