Those who know me will know that when it comes to the British Heart Foundation, I’m always happy to help in any way I can. This weekend has provided to perfect opportunity – event photography of guests arriving at a fundraising dinner on Friday night.
The Millstone at Mellor is a great restaurant and was the perfect venue for a top-notch dinner event for over ninety guests. My role was to photograph them looking at their finest in their posh frocks as they mingled at the start of the evening. Young magician Harrison was on site to baffle them with sleight of hand along with musician’s Emjay to perform through the evening.
There’s a Gallery of Images on my website, but look out for their pictures in the local society magazines – that’s the next step!
The rest of the weekend took on an exciting turn too with an impromptu invitation to photograph at local company Forrest’s 60th anniversary celebrations. After a damp start to the day the clouds parted and sun shone down onto their event – guests were able to emerge from the shelter of their big top teepee to enjoy all the fun of the fair, live bands, real ales and food. All in all a splendid affair – and an awesome weekend.
Next week follows a similar theme of event photography. This time catching up with old friends from St Ambrose Barlow School in Liverpool – the last two years have been awesome, photographing their portraits and printing on site for them to take home with them – can’t wait to do it all again!
