Party Photography Chelmsford Essex
Here is a single image from recent Party Photography Chelmsford Essex. Regular visitors to my website may well recall that late last Summer I photographed Vicky’s 40th birthday at Maison Talbooth in Colchester which was a really enjoyable party to capture. This time around it was her husband Daniel’s turn to celebrate his 40th, and I was invited up to the rather splendid Lion House in Boreham near Chelmsford to document the evening.
This was my first visit to The Lion House and I have to say it’s a very special venue for a party. It’s a quirky combination of old and new that works particularly well. The evening’s entertainment included a full blown casino, a band, a DJ (of course) a vodka luge and these glamorous burlesque dancing girls. Victorian burlesque was popular in London theatres from the 1830s to the 1890s. It took culture like opera or Shakespeare and parodied it. They would often use the original music or popular music of the time and re-write the lyrics for comic effect. Venues became known for showing burlesque during this era. I particularly like the contrast between the very dark, almost unlit background and the dancing girls who are illuminated by my lighting. It is such a glamorous shot that is always a talking point when I show it to potential clients.
