A most unusual wedding photo
Cycling around London I often see south-east Asians being photographed against London landmarks in their wedding attire. I suggested to a couple being photographed in front of Tower Bridge at 6.30pm today that they hung around for a further fifteen minutes to get a very special London wedding photo.
They did, and were rewarded with two helicopters flying through Tower Bridge behind them.
Thanks to IanVisits for the tip off about the helicopter fly through. I assumed the filming was for the new Bond movie, Skyfall, but a bystander with a large camera told me the helicopters were from the BBC, filming their intro to the Olympic Games coverage. Whatever the reason it was a fabulous sight on a fabulous day.
