The great and the good of Water Orton all scrub up very well, as you can see!

Having somewhat foolishly offered to do the photography, Jayne and myself had a very busy night. In fact, apart from the meal, we didn’t stop shooting until midnight! All the photos that I can publish are shown by clicking on the link to the gallery at the bottom of this page.


Predictably, as the evening went on the shots got a little more outrageous and the queue of people a little more entertaining, so I would like to thank Jayne for sorting out all of the people who were a bit worse for wear and getting the money off them while I took the photos.

I’d also like to thank Derek and Tony Barnett for helping me out when I was having a bit of a stress because we had to move the backdrop half way through the evening which completely messed up the lighting!

Can I Buy a Photograph?

Most of you have probably already bought photos, but if you didn’t or would like some more, you can order these on the gallery page (see link below). I have put reference numbers on the bottom of each image, so please make sure you complete all of the required information and I will happily oblige. After all of the effort that you all made to look your best for the evening, it would a shame not to have a photograph as a reminder.

The cost is £5 for a 7″x5″ print in black mount, or alternatively I can email a high resolution version of the image for you to print however you wish.
