Wow, the photos are great! So pleased. Thank you so much!
Sarah & Francesca
Francesca's 18th birthday party, held at the Birds Hill Golf Centre just outside Maidenhead and close to Peter's base near Reading Berkshire, had a horror / zombie theme - as will soon become apparent on browsing the galleries! The guys and gals don't normally dress like that - honest!
The guests went to a lot of trouble to look the part, and our hosts really pushed the boat out to dress the room in the appropriate decor. What a joy to shoot!
The only downside - if it was a downside at all - was that our guests were completely spooked by the presence of video cameras and so Plan A - which was to shoot most of the evening as movies - had to be ditched in favour of Plan B (no not the director of that excellent film Ill Manors); stills. Everyone was well-up for that as you'll see.
Guests of a nervous disposition were not helped by the presence of human remains at the entrance!
Those viewers scared of spiders should look away now!
Our hostess Francesca greeted guests and posed for a few photos at the entrance:
The popularity of the selfie was as strong as ever:
The rodeo spider - a variation on the popular mechanical rodeo bull was a great addition:
Everyone put it lots of effort to look original:
Lots of guests were only too willing to pose for impromptu group photos:
It was a birthday party so naturally there had to be a birthday cake! And with a suitably horrific theme of course:
Don't you just hate it when your lovely family group photo gets photobombed by a zombie!
Not quite murder on the dancefloor but close!
