Louise Kirby’s 21st Birthday Party in York.

Louise wanted to celebrate her 21st Birthday in style. Her mother had come up with the idea of hiring a York cruise boat and staging a Black tie event in honour of Lou’s 21st Birthday with her friends and family.

Unfortunately Lou had lost her mother, Angie, very suddenly only 4 weeks prior to her 21st Birthday. Her death was very sudden and extremely hard for the her entire family. Lou and her family insisted on carrying on with party not only to remember and honour her mums wishes, but to celebrate her 21st with a very fond and loving memories of Angie.

I was very honoured to be asked to photograph this wonderful celebration and the night was filled with laughter, tears and love. Here are some of the images from the night.

Thank you to all of the Kirby family it was a truly great night.
