Official Opening of a Multinational’s International HQ in Richmond – PR Event Photography

I do like Americans, they’re so polite. Louis Berger is a $1 billion global professional services corporation based in Morristown, N.J., USA. Louis Berger ‘helps infrastructure and development clients solve their most complex challenges’. They build things. Big things like airports. They’ve established an international operations headquarters in Richmond upon Thames. As the starting bell rang on the Brexit boxing match, I hope they didn’t regret their choice of location. The staff attending the official opening was very multinational, I heard as much Spanish spoken as English. Thomas Topolski, President, Louis Berger International spoke about the company’s values – ‘At the core of everything we do is the promise to provide solutions that have a positive impact on society.’  The Mayor of Richmond upon Thames, Councillor David Linnette spoke about how the local authority was desperate for the Louis Berger’s business rates. Everyone took his slightly uncomfortable speech very graciously, of course, they’re American.

The Mad Hatter’s Wedding? Photography for a Very Special Day

wedding, photographer, photography

A Mad-Hatters themed wedding? Not sure what to expect here! Well, it turned out to be a very individual celebration, at Hartsfield Manor, in Surrey. Louise and Leigh had help from friends and family in decorating the Victorian stately home for their wedding. Dozens of bits and bobs, eclectic and even eccentric, but a great stage for the wedding ceremony in a beautiful, light room, drinks in the 16 acre garden and grounds, then meal and a party. The bridal suite had a large dressing room where the bride and her maids were attended by hairdressing make-up and Prosecco. It was fun to photograph, and slightly embarrassing when I noticed there was a bra swinging from the Velcro fastener on my camera flash!

 

Come to a Party – Dressed as Tube Station!

Any ideas what you’d do if you were invited to a tube station themed party? I was completely without inspiration, but luckily I was taking photographs so I had an excuse…. Celebrating a significant birthday in Richmond, Surrey was actress Julie Peasgood. There was plenty of theatricality on display in the guests, and some terrific creative thinking that quite put me to shame. It was a really fun evening and it was lovely to see and hear from Julie’s friends about her past times and their love for her. She is lovely!
So see how many tube stations you can identify. I got about two, but I’m useless at puzzles…

We heard some great stories, some were a bit rude….
