The Royal Hall in Harrogate has been beautifully restored in recent years, to offer the most opulent setting for any corporate evening event in Harrogate. We regularly photograph events at the Royal Hall and also at other venues operated by Harrogate Borough Council.
In this photograph, the guests were enjoying a pre-dinner drink and some presentations before they headed through to the exhibition halls which had been beautifully prepared for a sit-down meal for around 500 people. Using a wide angle lens and bounced flash captured the natural light and atmosphere of the event, and the long depth of field focuses on the dramatic stage. A great place for a posh do.
