St Paul’s from the Shard – glimpses of a heavenly city?
I hope you’ll forgive me for only a tenuous link to brides and weddings today, in that both the Shard and St Paul‘s are pretty fabulous wedding venues (why not both?). Recently I visited the Shard with my son and had a little play with my camera. As you might expect, it’s a pretty fabulous view from up there. One of the best views in London, and amazing clean air too! You can shortly view more of these shots on Alamy, under my profile. This is best viewed large so do click on it.It reminds me of the Renaissance belief in a heavenly city, a more real, perfect version of what happens here below. I like to imagine St Paul’s transmitting to this heavenly city from down below! Two paradigms existing together and yet invisibly. “For we know in part, and we prophecy in part, and we see through a glass darkly…” St Paul’s would be a fun place to get married – just like Princess Diana. In terms of wedding photography St Paul’s presents a few issues as cruelly you are not allowed to take photographs inside almost at all. Personally I think it’s time vicars learnt that God speaks through photography too! The Shard would be a fabulous place to have your wedding reception.To book me as your wedding photographer get in touch on email@example.com
