A year ago today Mark and I got up crazy early and headed into Central London for photos. I had scheduled an engagement shoot and was adamant about including London landmarks like tower Bridge and St. Pauls. When I shared those photos you will see we did photos at both locations but also had one bonus, St Dunstan in the East. This Church was originally built in the 11th century, was repaired after sustaining major damage in 1666 great fire, and was almost entirely destroyed in World War II. Today it s a hidden garden only five minutes from the Monument Tube Station but largely unknown. On June 28th, 2020 London was nearly empty when we did our photos but yesterday, we returned to this spot and it was a bit different.
As you may have seen on Instagram, Mark’s Mom came down to London yesterday for the day and we visited some of our favorite spots and also took her to some new ones. Mark and I had not been back back to St Dunstan in the East sine we took these photos and it was fun to see the spot again, though it was much busier. For fun I got back on the frame of one of the large church windows to recreate one of my favorite shots. You can see the photo above and below, some of our engagement photo shots form St Dunstan in the East.
Many of these are photos I have never shared before but I think the different angles and locations helps give a better sense of the beauty of St. Dunstan in the East. These photos, all except the one from yesterday, were shot by Desiree who is aLondon & Cotswolds Wedding Photographer – you can find more information on her website Desiree A. North Photography
