Katie & Michael’s wedding at C Banquets was such a pleasure to capture. We started the day with the bride and groom getting ready in separate rooms at the Delta Hotel. This hotel is very nice and modern. In fact, each floor has a different bold colour with sayings all around. I loved the brightness of the bridal suite. There was lots of room to allow the bride’s dress and cathedral style veil to truly shine. Both the Bride and Groom were able to do a round of portraits with their bridal party in the lobby before we head out. We ended up doing the couple’s first look on site as well so they could travel in the same limo.
The rest of their portraits were at Gairloch Gardens. The bride scouted out this location months ago so it was definitely one of her must-haves. The windy day did offer a nice dramatic effect to their portrait photos. Because there was no need to throw her veil up in the air to get the flying veil effect. Hers was all-natural. Luckily the wind died down as we travelled further away from the waterfront. The brighter green tones of the park worked really well with the bride and bridesmaids’ bouquets. Do note that these bouquets are sunflower inspired from the bride’s numerous tattoos. Afterward, we headed to C Banquets.
This C Banquets Wedding all took place at one location. The ceremony was indoors on one side of the venue, while the reception was on the other. Throughout the whole ceremony, the sun was setting behind them. Which looks amazing in person, but is very difficult to photograph. Pretty sure I was the only one at the even who had and photos of the couple not looking like silhouettes. But that took the full power of my studio lights to achieve.
Highlights of the evening reception include a first dance between the wedding couple and their parents. The groom’s last name was Angel, so there was an assortment of Angel themed songs playing all night. But my personal highlight was when Boba Fett from Star Wars made an appearance during the reception to collect the groom. Not something you see everyday.
So, if you are looking for a venue that has it all, C Banquets is definitely an amazing option. This couple had the ceremony, the photos, and the reception all within walking distance.
