Vanity Fair Ballroom, newly renovated, and stunning location for a grand ballroom wedding.  The King Edward Hotel has recently undergone some major renovations and as promised, completed before the wedding.  Rebecca and Craig planned a fabulous wedding with ceremony and reception in the beautiful coffered, domed ceiling with crystal chandeliers.  A room with ambiance and character like no other with pink up lighting that created a magical atmosphere full of fragrant flowers in tall pewter vases and lots of family and friends.

The girls stayed the night and enjoyed a relaxing evening until everyone convened in the large suite occupied by the sisters.  The makeup artists arrived and set up in the bathroom with the only available makeup mirror as there was no window light to be had on this rainy day.  The hair girl set herself up in the main bedroom and started with the bridesmaids as the moms and bridesmaids chatted over coffee and treats.  Rebecca was quite calm and after escorting me to the bridal suite to photograph her gorgeous gown, shoes, jewellery, and rings she went back downstairs to join the party in her sisters room.  The bridal suite was quite lovely and I knew instantly that it was going to be my only opportunity to get some gorgeous available light images.  The room had large windows and was decorated with gray and red.  I quickly moved furniture and distracting objects and staged the room for the getting ready portion of the day.

Craig was at home with his groomsmen and David my second shooter was taking care of all his details and all the fun I’m sure they were having.  Mid morning the rain started and it just poured, but that didn’t phase Rebecca at all…..it was what it was.  The entire days was going to have to be photographed indoors with available light, video light and flash.

The beautiful Vanity Fair Ballroom, although brand new and decorated nicely, it has no windows at all and made it was quite clear to me at that I would be photographing the entire ceremony with flash and video light.  Since it was pouring outside, St. James Park, the location for formal portraits, was also going to be out of the question.  The hotel and Sarah the coordinator, did a great job accommodating me and my staff with our needs for locations for the photos.  The hotel does have quite a bit of variety and thankfully the Sovereign Ballroom was not in use so we were able to take some stunning photos of the bride and groom formals in that space.

The day went according to plan and everyone had a lovely evening celebrating with the new Mr. & Mrs.

I am so grateful to have been invited to document this wedding and I can’t thank these two wonderful families enough for including in their day.

The Sovereign Ballroom was under construction and a great option for indoor photography while it rained. This ballroom has incredible windows.
