Sparkle 2015 – Black Tie Event Photography for Cranford Hospice12 Jul, 2015

It was my absolute pleasure to support Sparkle 2015, the inaugural black tie charity event for Hawke’s Bay’s Cranford Hospice.

Held at the beautiful Mana Lodge during a weather bomb (it was seriously raining down on us), the event organisers did not let a little bit of dampness diminish the serious amount of sparkle, bling and glamour.

Guests arrived looking so stunning in their evening dresses and suits.  I found myself distracted by the beautiful frocks and shoes. These party goers also wore their dancing shoes and as soon as the band started to play, everyone was very quick to shake their tail feather on the dance floor.

On a more personal note, on this night I got to hang out and take photos alongside Alphapix’s Corena Hodgson. Such a wonderful photographer and lovely person – I thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to troubleshoot with her and just have a good ole’ time.

So much attention to detail with the styling, menu and wine choices, party favours, lighting, entertainment… I could go on and on.  All for a very good Hawke’s Bay cause.

Also supporting this event:

Orton Tailored Cuisine for the amazing food and service.

Sight and Sound for dynamic lighting.

Mardigras Event Hire for the very necessary marquees.

Design @ 409 for the very yummy Sparkle cake.

Style Me Vintage for the OUT OF THIS WORLD styling.

There are many many more supporters that I have not named but their input was just as valuable to running this successful event.
