Nelsons Column by Jay Rowden Wedding Photography

As a wedding photographer in London, I couldn’t think of a better location to stage some wedding photos. There are few places in London which evoke the spirit of this incredible city better than Trafalgar Square and its environs which include of course the unique Nelsons Column in London. Originally built to honour Admiral Lord Nelson in his now infamous victory over the fleets of France and Spain, this is a very special London location. On the north side of Trafalgar Square is the magnificent National Gallery with its classical style lines, imposing pillars, raised dome and turrets on the roofline: a breathtaking building and for me the perfect backdrop for any wedding photograph. Nelsons Column itself is closely guarded by two pairs of giant stone lion statues at its base and there are also a number of extraordinary statues and sculptures that sit within the square. Unquestionably, Trafalgar Square and Nelson Column is an archetypal location in London and as you would expect it has been used to great effect in both film and television productions. Examples include The Avengers, Main In a Suitcase, The Ipcress File as well as the now legendary scenes from Monty Python and Casino Royale. The square also played host to very final Harry Potter premiere, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 which was held here back in July 2011 with almost a mile of red carpet and thousands of fans who camped out for days just to catch a glimpse of the film stars who were present. In closing, if ever I have the opportunity to bring a bride and groom to Nelsons Column and Trafalgar Square for wedding photography in London, I know the results would be simply breathtaking.
