Hafeeza’s Surprise 30th Birthday Party at Dunsmore House, Rugby | Photographed by Victoria Jane Photography

I was booked by Hafeeza’s husband to do the photography for a surprise 30th Birthday party that he had arranged for her. The party was held at the fabulous Dunsmore house in Rugby which has been recently restored to a superb condition and can be booked for exclusive private events such as parties and conferences.

Hafeeza’s closest family and friends attended and a great time was had by all. I stayed for about 3 hours taking informal shots and a few posed shots of small groups.

This was the first time that I’ve photographed an event at Dunsmore house. I thoroughly enjoyed it. You’ll notice that the guests were in the kitchen! That’s because you can hire out the whole house, kitchen and all -Fabulous!

Macmillan Pride of Coventry & Warwickshire – Awards Evening

– Tuesday 2nd November 2010

I was honoured to be given another fantastic opportunity to photograph an event on behalf of  Macmillan Cancer support earlier this week.

Tuesday 3rd November saw the 2010 Awards ceremony hosted at the beautiful Mallory Court Country House Hotel near to Leamington Spa.

The award’s evening was held to recognise the fantastic (and, at times, somewhat mad) achievements of a number of inspirational individuals and organisations who have helped to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Well done and congratulations to Sharon Battersby, Sarah Darby, & Karen Shortt  for the organisation of such a fantastic evening for an amazing cause.

This is not the first event that I’ve attended on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support this year and it is a charity that I will continue to support (often in conjunction with Stuart Kettell of Kettell Video Productions) who is a prolific fund raiser (award-winner on the night) for Macmillan and a great friend and colleague. Well done Stuart and all of the other award-winners on the night!
