I was thrilled when Amanda invited me to photograph her 50th birthday celebrations in December 2012. I really enjoy photographing special events, there is a real sense of excitement in the air and I love the challenge of capturing that in the photos.
The party was held at Ridgmont House, Horwich. Built in the 17th Century, Ridgmont House is a charming building full of character, set within its own private grounds. It is a fantastic venue for parties, weddings and events.
Amanda’s party was held just prior to Christmas and everyone was in great spirits. The house began to get busy at around 8pm, there was a great atmosphere and it wasn’t long before the DJ started his set. The room was buzzing – lots of chatting, laughter, dancing and of course great food and drink! Amanda looked fantastic in an elegant long black dress. Everyone had a lovely evening and I really enjoyed photographing the event. Thank you Amanda for allowing me to be part of your celebrations and also thank you to the staff at Ridgmont House who were particularly helpful too!
