Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel Elopement Photography in Spring

Walking through the dark, stone hallways of the "Castle", steeped in history and legend, it's no wonder that J+B decided on this venue for their Fairmont Banff Springs elopement photography.

An Intimate Ceremony at the Fairmont

Even though most weddings at this grand venue tend to be larger, J+B were looking for a quieter wedding so they rented out the Strathcona room for their Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel elopement photography. They travelled from Edmonton to experience all the splendour of the Banff area for their big day and I can't think of a more beautiful way to start their new life together.

Exploring the Castle during this Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel Elopement

After the vows were read and the marriage was sealed with a kiss at this Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel elopement, we explored some of this mysterious hotel's beautiful hallways and its haunted spiral staircase. Legend has it that a bride haunts the hotel after tripping (or being pushed) down the now-infamous spiral staircase and tragically passing away on her wedding day. J+B and I were fascinated and wanted to see it for ourselves so we spend some time looking around, taking in all the dark, mysterious corners of the hotel until finally stumbling upon it.

The Banff Springs Hotel is a great location for an indoor elopement in Banff, but a lot of couples opt for an outdoor elopement.

Magical Views at Surprise Corner

After feeling like we sufficiently explored the Banff Springs hotel we drove over to one of my favourite locations for Fairmont Banff Springs elopement photographers, a sunny spot called Surprise Corner. Overlooking the turbulent Bow River and Bow Falls, this prime lookout offers views of Sulphur Mountain and the Banff Springs Hotel from afar.

It was a cloudy day so the lighting was even and beautiful and we spent time taking in all the sights and sounds that this spot had to offer. Working in Banff is always a treat and it was a pleasure photographing J+B's elopement at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel on this fine spring day.
