    Teia’s Batmitzvah
    Teia’s batmitzvah celebrations were incredible.  Uptown events did an amazing job of transforming the HAC into the garden of Eden, here’s a link to a time lapse of the set up, pretty impressive stuff: Teia’s hard work was evident as her four part reading of her Dvar Tora was perfectly presented and interjected with the wonderful singing voice of Steven Leas.  The evening was a fabulous production put together just four months after Teia’s brothers barmitzvah.  Every detail meticulously thought out coming together to produce a symbolic, unique and entertaining event. Here are a selection of images from the celebrations.                                            ...

    Barmitzvah photo shoot in Radlett and Sopwell House, St.Albans
    We had the great pleasure in photographing Jacob’s Barmitzvah at Sopwell House. His Village fete themed celebration was balmy and fabulous at the same time!  Complete with funfair and food stalls, a brass band and uniquely themed photo studio, it was the most personalised Barmitzvah we have ever photographed. Guests arrived to the day time celebration unaware of the fun they were about to encounter.  Drinks and canapes were held in a replicated pub ‘The Crown’ a favourite pub from Yorkshire where the family have strong links and visit frequently.  Pinball, pool and other retro pub games kept them amused before a BBQ sit down lunch and speeches. Jacob proudly rounded off the speeches with announcing the Village Fete was open.  With perfect...

The night was based around a royal theme with foot men, butlers a palatial marquee and the most amazing floral table centres I think we have ever seen. Oh and there were a few special guests that added to the excitement of the night… Here is a flavour of the celebration..                                              ...

    Robbie’s Barmitzvah
    Barmitzvah at 1 Park Royal studios On Sunday we photographed Robbie’s barmitzvah, wow what a celebration! The barmitzvah was Persian themed around the festival of Purim, a special Jewish holiday celebrating Jewish survival. 1, Park Royal studios were transformed by Uptown Events who turned a blank canvas into an atmospheric Persian  masterpiece, shown below.  With exquisite food by Philip Small , toastmaster Steve Warwick and non stop entertainment by the superb Gilev show band it was definitely a night to remember.
