London has so much to offer couples, not only in diversity but also in culture and things to do. From beautiful parks, such as Hyde Park and Regent’s Park, to trendy areas like Shoreditch and the Southbank, these London locations are perfect for couples’ photoshoots. Simply due to the number and diversity of locations, engagement photography in London has become a big deal.
This article will take you through some of the best engagement photo locations in London for that all-important romantic photoshoot!
Top Engagement Photoshoot Locations in London
Hyde Park is brimming with cute spots to make your engagement photoshoot come alive! From the romance of the Italian Gardens, to the famous Winter Wonderland that takes over the park during the winter holiday season, Hyde Park is a versatile location for a romantic photoshoot.
Hampstead Pergola Gardens
The Pergola Gardens can be found in Hampstead Heath and is a sight of pure beauty all year round. Dotted with stone columns enveloped with flowers and ivy, this location makes for a sweet and romantic backdrop.
St Paul’s Cathedral
St Paul’s Cathedral is an iconic location for an engagement shoot. You can go traditional and host your photoshoot from the front of the cathedral, or if you approach it from the right-hand side you can get a bit more of London into your photos – a red phone box!
Somerset House is located on The Strand and is therefore in a most iconic part of the city! Somerset House really stands out as a romantic location in the winter when there is a beautiful ice rink in the centre.
Kew Gardens is bursting with romantic spots in which to take your engagement photos. The lake is a particularly beautiful location within the gardens for your photos – there are great opportunities to get birds and flowers in the background of your pictures!
If you are looking for your photoshoot to be quintessentially London but with less of a tourist vibe, then think Shoreditch! From its wide range of coffee shops to cool record shops and funky wall art, there are a variety of different locations within Shoreditch to host an engagement photoshoot.
The Southbank is a great option for an engagement photoshoot on a sunny day. The 70s architecture of the Southbank centre offers a unique backing to your photos, and its ideal location beside the water also adds a romantic air to your photoshoot.
If you are looking to trek a little outside central London, then Greenwich has plenty to offer. Greenwich Park in particular is a stunning spot for an engagement shoot as it also boasts glorious views across London and Canary Wharf.
Regent’s Park has pretty gardens and a lovely lake that you can explore and find stunning intimate hideaways for your photographs. A good option if you want some greenery in your engagement photos whilst still being in the city you as a couple adore! Check out the Japanese Garden and hidden waterfall while you are there!
The beautiful houses in Notting Hill alone make it a perfect London engagement location. Taking shots of you as a couple browsing Notting Hill’s famous markets, or in front of the iconic bookshop (we wonder why it is so famous?!) is a unique but romantic engagement photoshoot idea.
