1) you must be having wedding photographs , marriage invitation card . even if marriage is not registered you can file for divorce 

2) file for divorce by mutual consent 
3) it will take around 7 months for divorce decree . both should have been staying separate for period of 1 year before applying for divorce

Separation period of 1 year is compulsory before filing for divorce.  Best option for you would be to go for mutual consent divorce.  Even though your marriage is not registered, you will have your marriage invitation card, videos, photographs, album etc.. to prove your marriage. MCD takes about 6 to 8 months for delivering of decree.

Divorce by mutual consent itself is the least time taking i.e 6 months to one year. But there need to be separation for one year before filing for MCD. registration of marriage is not necessary. Marriage photographs, invitation card will do.

1. If your spouse is willing to mutually end the marriage then both of you can jointly file for mutual divorce which will take around 6-8 months to culminate. It will not get faster than this.

2. You must be in possession of some photographs related to your marriage and also the marriage invitation card. These documents are sufficient to file for divorce.

While being in London you may engage an Indian lawyer and then sign the divorce petition once prepared by him. It has to be signed by your wife also. Once signed by both of you it can be filed in court when you arrive in India. This will obviate the delay.

You cannot move the Supreme Court. Mutual divorce has to be obtained from the trial court.
