We just happened to walk by this place which was also on my list of things to see while we're here. Originally a church was built here during Saxon times then restored by St Dunstan in 950 AD, rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of 1697, it was bombed out during the blitz and then turned into a garden for the public. It's amazing!! #stdunstanintheeast#stdunstans#cityoflondon#gothvacation#gothvacationactivities
St Dunstan in the East Church Garden. One of the nicest hidden spots in London, in my opinion.
Originally built in 1100, this parish church hasn't had the easiest life: it was severely damaged in the Great Fire of London and was "patched up" in 1668. In 1817, due to structural instability, it was rebuilt between 1817-1821. The church was then almost destroyed during the Blitz of 1941 and now the ruins of the church have been turned into a humble public garden, opening in 1971.
Yesterday we photographed the wedding of the lovely Fiona + Sam. They exchanged their vows in Fiona's family church which was the place where Fionas parents got married almost 30 years ago. We wish them every happiness and hope their marriage is as successful as Fionas parents. ❤️ Here's a quick sneak peek from their day.
