Venue - JoJo’s Meze, Meat & Fish Restaurant
Location - Tankerton, Whitstable, Kent
Date - 6th October 2012
Partner - Halim Soltani
On Saturday the 6th October I travelled to nearby Whitstable to photograph the 40th birthday party of Alison Whittaker and a lovely surprise was that her and her partner Halim got engaged that same day so it became a joint birthday/engagement party.
The venue was Jojo's Meze, an intimate Mediterranean Meat and Fish Restaurant along the sea front in Tankerton, Whitstable. There were around 70 people at the party and plenty of entertainment for the guests such as a band and magician.
My main job was to mingle amongst the guests and get some family shots and photograph everyone enjoying themselves. There were celebratory drinks and an open buffet for the guests to enjoy and of course everyone was excited that Alison had also got engaged the same day so the ring was a big talking point.
I got to meet and photograph all Alison's family and friends and her father also did a speech for her birthday and to congratulation his daughter on her engagement to Halim. I covered the party for 3 hours and got some great shots showing what a fun night everyone was having. I would one again like to congratulation Alison and Halim on their engagement and wish them both all the best with the planning of their wedding.
