Memories to last a lifetime

04 Apr Memories to last a lifetime

What I love about photography is the memories it captures. I was honoured to have been given the privilege of capturing the celebrations to mark Susan & John’s respective 65th and 70th birthdays and their joint retirement. What an achievement all in one year! The celebrations were at Ansty Hall which is a beautiful 17th century country manor with stunning gardens. Most of the photo shoot took place outside in the garden where a centuries old cedar tree takes centre stage.

On the Saturday morning of the shoot the sun was shining and the sky blue. Although not the best weather conditions for photography it did make the day glorious for the family get together and the reality of Ansty Hall far exceeded the photographs portraying it online, which I had peeked at beforehand. Our shoot began in the drawing room where the family would later have dinner. The sun streamed in through the windows and we were able to get some beautiful shots of Susan before heading out to the garden where the rest of the family joined us.

Wishing Susan and John all the very best for their retirement and future travels…their adventures summed up by the ornament they found in Lanzarote; relaxing little devils…
