Asalaamualaiqum, I am enquiring if you can conduct a nikah without the girl having wali, as there are some family issues stopping the girl moving forward.. Is this permissible under the Hanafi madhab?
If so, can you refer us to a Masjid or Imam in London who can arrange this?
Please advise. JazakAllahu khair

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
According to the Hanafi school of thought, the nikah (marriage) of a mature woman (baaligha)who gets married without a wali (guardian) is valid.[i] However, it is not advisable due to the many complications that may arise. Also, it is important for a healthy marriage that one has the blessing of one’s parents.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
