Guildford birthday party photography | Tom’s 50th
Now this was a fun party to photograph – for Tom’s 50th birthday celebrations his wife Libby had asked everyone to come in fancy dress to match the party’s James Bond theme. Some got into the spirit more than others, but there were some very creative costumes…
At least two Blofelds (complete with white cat), a scuba diver from “Thunderball”, a gold-clad Shirley Eaton lookalike from “Goldfinger”, a very creative Octopussy, and a scarily realistic “Jaws” from “The Spy Who Loved Me”. And the birthday boy came as Commander James Bond RNVR (who else?)
Family photos in the garden
When I arrived we took the opportunity to take some family photos of Tom and Libby and daughter Eve, before the party properly got under way. Then I just photographed the partygoers as discreetly as I could.
Later on, there was dancing to a live band – and prizes for the best costumes!
Here is a selection of some of my favourite images from the party (click any thumbnail to enlarge):
Happy Birthday Tom and thanks to Libby for inviting me to photograph the fun!
