The theme for this celebration was ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Alice and her family had spent two days blowing up hundreds of inflatable flamingos to decorate the marquee and garden with. This brilliantly whacky idea was definitely worth the effort, it set the tone for the evening as it was the first thing guests noticed when they arrived. I loved all the little details Alice had thought of. At the drinks reception, for example, guests drank champagne out of vintage teacups.
I had such a great time photographing this party and I particularly enjoyed capturing Alice and her family before the party started. Firstly, because the light was so beautiful and, secondly, because they were such an energetic, close and charismatic family. I particularly loved Granny who arrived, to everyone’s surprise, dressed as the Queen of Hearts.
