The Tower of London is England's most popular paid for visitor attraction and so seeing a Bride being being escorted to the chapel by Beefeaters will result in gathering crowds of tourists with their cameras out ready to try a capture that unique tower of London wedding picture.
Beefeaters are from the Armed Forces and live on site and are as much a tourist attraction as the Tower itself and so form an important part of the day for the newlyweds and in particular their wedding photos. Their main role is to escort the Bride to the wedding ceremony in the Chapel Royal of St. Peter ad Vincular which is great for some totally unique wedding photographs. This ancient chapel has Anne Boleyn, Jane Grey and Catherine Howard buried however, the wedding photographer is not allowed to film inside the Chapel.
Thee newly-weds traditionally celebrate by walking under the raised spears of two Beefeaters, before being led to the green beside The White Tower for some group wedding photographs.
More wedding photographer opportunities can be had walking along the South Wall some romantic Bride and Groom wedding pictures with such wonderful backdrops including The Shard, Tower Bridge and of course The White Tower.

Once again, no wedding photographer photos are allowed.
