Blog / Wonderful 90th Birthday celebrations in Bury St Edmunds | Event Photography
This 90th birthday party in Bury St Edmunds was a real treat to be a part of. It was a surprise for the gentleman in question. He arrived believing it was dinner with a few of the family but it was the whole clan instead! Children, grandchildren, great grandchildren. I always think how lucky I am at these events, photographing a family coming together and celebrating their history and such a special member of the family.
This whole group were so friendly and welcoming to me. It really was a joy to photograph this lovely family on such a special day. The last gathering for a while for them all as one granddaughter was heading off to Australia a few days later to live, so it meant emotions were even more heightened.
The party goers had a lovely lunch and I photographed natural reportage shots as everyone chatted and caught up. There were some lovely speeches and then we headed outside to do a few group shots.
It was such a lovely day, a real honor to meet the family and to capture their celebrations. Thanks for having me.
