With Jelger and Tanja Photographers behind the lens, Annabel and Steve got married in British Columbia’s regiment drill hall. The venue is an amazing historic building in the middle of Downtown Vancouver. Steve, who is an active member of the regiment spends a lot of time working there, and so this building is a place where he and Annabel have spent a lot of time together too.
Annabel chose navy blue and marsala red as the theme colors, and the tones popped up everywhere in the decor and outfits.
Both Annabel and Steve have Scottish ancestors, so the bridal party members that were not part of the military proudly showed off their kilts. So did the incredibly cute ring bearers! Annabel had one “bridesmaid man”, who of course also wore a kilt.
Annabel’s dress in combination with her hairstyle added a touch of vintage to the setting. Her porcelain flawless skin created a stunning contrast with her red lipstick.
The bagpipe player and the swordsmen added a grant feeling to the heartfelt ceremony. After the ceremony, Annabel and Steve had to kiss before the swordsmen let them through.
Due to it being an extremely rainy and dark day, the couple stayed inside the building for the photographs, except for a quick escape to the rooftop. Some believe that the little hallway in the regiment is haunted, but luckily no ghost showed up in their photographs.
The reception decor involved a lot of DIY by the couple and their friends. The tables had a centerpiece with little mix and matched vases with flowers and featured a small wooden table number with a tank as a wink to the location. The ring bearers had their own mini table in front of the head table. For uplighting, the couple added blue and red to the dance floor area, to continue the wedding theme colors.
Thanks for stopping by!
