Helen’s 50th birthday | Rudding Park Hotel | Harrogate | February 2018

Helen’s 50th | Rudding Park | Harrogate February 2018

When I’m booked to capture some beautiful moments at a fabulous party I do a little merry dance…over the last few years I’ve been asked more and more to photograph small events. All the recommendations have come via word of mouth which is brilliant! I’ve photographed an 18th birthday celebration in Restaurant Bar & Grill in Leeds, a number of 50th birthday parties, one 120th (an 80th and 40th combined at a gastro pub in North Yorkshire), christenings, bat mitzvahs and silver wedding anniversaries. So I was delighted when Helen contacted me in January to photograph her wonderful 50th birthday party at the stunning Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate. Having worked at the hotel a number of times before, I couldn’t wait to get back there.

Helen had around 120 guests and the attention to detail in all the preparations was second to none. I met the family in the library to take a few photographs before heading to the champagne reception. As couples arrived, I photographed them on the imposing staircase and then we headed into the dining room for dinner and further celebrations. Everyone had a brilliant evening.

The photographs that Helen chose to have in her stunning album really do relive the story from the evening. Here are some favourites. x
