Being a Wedding and Engagement Photographer in London is fantastic, some of the worlds most Iconic landmarks in one city and on my doorstep! London is also fast becoming the destination of choice for Asian couples to have their pre wedding or engagement photo shoots. I think its down to London having allot of history and landmarks such as the London Eye, Big Ben, red buses and of course, black cabs! The most popular way would seem to book your flights from Hong Kong to London, have a few days sightseeing and end the week with your photo shoot.
This particular engagement shoot started in Covent Garden, a really busy market in the centre of London. Trying to get photos without members of the public in was a challenge but we managed to get some. From there we headed to the North side of the River Thames, a stones throw from the South Bank area. The weather was perfect and the light was incredible. Shortly after this though the clouds moved in and that was the end of that shoot.
After rearranging a second shoot date, we started on the South Bank this time. This area of London is always buzzing with people and has access to some of the big landmarks like Big Ben, St Pauls Cathedral, The Tate, The London Eye and Houses of Parliament. Paul Jess, Steven and I started at one end and walked down following the Thames picking out locations on the way. This time the weather was on our side and stayed that way for the duration of the shoot.
Fast forward to Paul and Jess’s wedding, it was an amazing event, a blend of authentic Chinese and English traditions. The Chinese tea ceremony and associated outfits is always a joy to be part of. To see a gallery from the big day, please click here.
