Perfect elegance in the George Ballroom


When visitors walk through the George Ballroom space, they feel as if they’ve been transported to another time. This extraordinary venue is flooded with natural light and astonishes with its groaning hardwood floors, ornate, high ceilings and historic, old walls that have seen and experienced a lot.

What a stunning backdrop for a workshop that photographer Katie Grant and the event stylists from Blooming Love Events transformed into a beguiling and diverse wedding venue.

From the photographer, Katie: “There is nothing quite as inspiring as a timeworn, architecturally beautiful, and historic building. The George Ballroom is just that. In finding this venue, I knew I had the perfect source of inspiration for pulling together this dusky editorial created for a 1:1 workshop.

Muted hues of blush and grey were combined with aged golds to create a faceted palette that had both depth and restraint.  A floral arbour for the peaceful indoor ceremony created an incredible focal point. The table, with it’s abundant florals by The Studio by Fleur  and muted stoneware, brushed brass cutlery, and glowing grey candles, matched the arbor perfectly.

Pulling it all together was the amazing calligraphy by Art + Alexander  that captured the unique elegance of the George Ballroom. An antique engagement ring perfectly complimented it all.”
