London is the heart of the United Kingdom and has everything to offer when it comes to a destination wedding. Whether you prefer a historical or traditional setting, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect location to complete your special day. Here are five ideas of where you could capture your engagement and wedding photos in London.
St. Paul’s Cathedral
St. Paul’s Cathedral is notably one of the most iconic references to the City of London. To capture your special moment here, try taking photos from a distance and featuring the cathedral in the background. One of the best views of this angelic cathedral is from the south bank of the River Thames, on the Millennium Bridge near Tate Modern.
Oxford Street and Regent Street
Known as the most popular high streets in Europe: Oxford Street and Regent Street are perfect locations to capture a photo that screams, “This is London.” From the bright, red buses to the Victorian-era architecture, these two streets are perfect for two Londoners-in-love.
The Hidden Gem:
Hidden near Bank station, in London’s financial district, sits a quiet French restaurant with a beautiful rooftop garden. From the terrace, you can capture your special moment with London’s famous skyline behind you.
This location is ideal for a couple with an appreciation for antiquity. Original construction of the building dates back to the 1800’s. Today, it serves as a multipurpose building with a breathtaking arched ceiling. The building’s historically blended architecture makes for a visually strong backdrop.
A stroll along the River Thames with the one you love sounds like the beginning of a lasting love story. Make this moment special by taking your photos from the riverside and using the infamous Tower Bridge as a backdrop. Capturing your photos at sunset will feel like a fairytale moment.
