We were booked by a close friend of our’s (Rani) for her Dad’s surprise 60th Birthday.  However, with this booking there was a twist:  Rani wanted a slideshow of all the old pictures the family had, including baby pictures which were (that’s right you guessed it!) 60 years old.  Conventional scanning failed, but the trusty canon’s came to the rescue!

In fact, the slideshow went down very well both a “fake” present for Mr B and having the slideshow playing during the party itself.

As the title suggests, it was a surprise party and I have to commend the military like organisation to make it happen.  The waiting was fun providing the opportunity for me to get some candid shots, and capture details.

It was total mayhem when Mr B arrived, with a simultaneous eruption of cheering, party poppers and the DJ’s sound system!  This was the “money” shot, and thankfully we managed to get it!


It was then on to the cake cutting ceremony before the starters were served.  This allowed us to take some family shots and be creative providing we were quick.

By now it was time to get the party started, and the DJ’s on the night were the best I’ve seen in a long time.  They played a good mix of old and new tunes, with the dancefloor continuously packed.


By the end there were even some magic tricks, (see above for the floating ball of fire). 

Thanks for reading,
