40 years in Photographs

When a client approached me with his idea of a photo exhibition for his wife’s 40th birthday party I was initially on edge. This says a lot, I tend to embrace any event idea. However, being  female, I understood how sensitive this theme could be. With focus on her beautiful family and such a wonderful vision from her husband I was able to create the perfect event for this surprise birthday party.

Set in a beautifully quaint gallery in Waterloo, we stuck to a simple black frame and aluminium mount set of photographs of between 30cm and 80cm. A couple of pop-art prints which I produced from some old photos, along with 12 photos that acted as a timeline along the mezzanine section of the gallery, gave the exhibition and party an interactive and fun element.

With a tight space, it was predominantly European canapé food with selected items on the buffet table, including a French inspired cheeseboard decorated with figs and berries.

Decoration was kept simple using lighting and black vases filled with exquisite white orchids.

 

Time Out For The Torch

So I decorated and organised some lovely events in spring this year, then I got offerred a job on the Torch Relay. 3 months later I’m sitting down in front of the TV getting ready to watch the Closing Ceremonies as if it was all a dream. It wasn’t a dream, it did happen and now back to reality. 8000 miles around our beautiful Kingdom, meeting 8000 truly inspirational people. The London 2012 Olympics has inspired a generation. It is certainly the most groundbreaking event I have ever worked on. Here are some photos to help me reflect on my Olympic Torch Journey…
