London’s Southbank – Why I love photographing there!

Posted by & filed under Families.

In my work as a London family, wedding and musicians photographer I am lucky enough to photograph all over this amazing city of ours, but one of the places I find myself coming back to again and again is the Southbank.

I have photographed so many families there – it’s a particular favourite area for families who are visiting London on holiday, with so many famous landmarks along that part of the River Thames. It’s also really popular with musicians, who might know the area well from taking part in concerts at the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room.

I’ve also photographed lots of engagement shoots along this stretch of river and some fantastic weddings too. I did one memorable wedding actually inside Tower Bridge which was wonderful. We made sure we got the group shots with the stunning bridge in the background and then the reception was just around the corner in St. Katharine’s Dock.

Another wedding that stands out is the one I photographed in London’s Oxo Tower, which is the most fantastic wedding venue. The wedding space is on the second flower of the Oxo Tower, looking out across the River Thames. There’s also a balcony where you can take in the view across to St Paul’s Cathedral. You can see images from this spectacular wedding here Oxo Tower Wedding  The couple loved this area so much that they also chose to have their engagement shoot there  Oxo Tower Engagement Shoot and as you can see we made use of the famous “AND” sign behind the Oxo Tower on both days.

And I can’t finish this blog without mentioning the famous Skateboard Park next to the River Thames near the Royal Festival Hall. The graffiti all over the walls provide the most wonderful, vibrant backgrounds and I love to return there as often as possible to see what new artwork has gone up since last time. Actually, that’s something I love about the whole area – it is constantly changing. New backgrounds appear all the time, keeping each photography session fresh and unique.

If you love this part of London as much I do and are interested in booking a family, musicians or engagement shoot, or if you have a wedding near the Southbank and are looking for a photographer, please do get in touch on hello@alexakidd-may.com or 07813 816335 – I’d love to create some memorable images with you.
