Lisa & Rob's London Engagement Shoot Blog. Wedding Photography.
Well the time had finally arrived to take a trip down to London for Lisa & Rob's engagement shoot. It had been in the planning for some time and what an opportunity we have been given to shoot around some of the most amazing landmarks and buildings available.
We woke around 6am to shoot over to Doncaster to catch the 7:45 train bound for Kings Cross, London where we had arranged to be picked up by Lisa & Rob in a classic Mini. Now this isn't just any ordinary Mini, this is a Mini from London's best sight-seeing tour Small Car BIG CITY. This company is owned by Rob & Lisa so we had the privilege of being transported around all day with the added sight-seeing tour knowledge thrown in as we passed London's finest sights. I'm quite a curious person myself so was firing off questions about nearly every building we passed which Rob knew the answer to. Great stuff!
Our first port of call was to be one of London's finest Hotels, The Rosewood Hotel. They had arranged for us to use the fantastic and quirky bar area more commonly known as "Scarfes Bar"
With large windows running down one side of the bar and an array of mixed furniture our creative juices were flowing. We had limited time but managed to shoot many images in a variety of ways.
As the clock struck eleven we needed to be on our way to the next location, Trinity House. Now I didn't really know much of Trinity House but had heard the name before. This beautiful building is the home of a charity dedicated to safeguarding shipping and seafarers which has been serving mariners since 1514. Amazing! Not only was this an amazing building but the artwork within was something spectacular. Given a choice of rooms we settled upon the largest, flanked by an original Elizabeth the 1st and Henry the 8th painting we set to work as seen below. Being given free reign and vip access to buildings is pretty much all a photographer could ask for.
Next off after a spot of lunch it was time to scale the height of the "Walkie Talkie" building and rise up to the "Sky Garden". After being searched and scanned we headed up the lift to one of the most amazing views London has to offer. There is not really much more we can say apart from look at the shots below to get the best idea of how amazing it really is. It doesn't take much to get us excited anyway to this really got us going.
After these three locations we headed to Leadenhall Market for a little christmassy touch which is also very close to "The Gherkin" then followed by a Mini sight-seeing tour back to Kings Cross.
We both want to thank Lisa & Rob for such an amazing day and we can't wait to be shooting your wedding next year. Thank you for choosing us to be your wedding photographers.
