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.
