Airth Castle – Amy’s 21st Birthday

Usually, when I head to Airth Castle it’s during the day for a wedding but last Saturday I headed over in the evening for another special event. Amy’s 21st birthday.

Amy was celebrating in style with a private dining room decorated in rose gold and glitter and 20 or so of her closest family and friends all glammed up to the max.

The Birthday Girl!

Amy waited until everybody was in the room before she made her grand entrance. Looking stunning in a full-length red evening dress and crown (well is it even your birthday if you aren’t wearing a crown?).

When the family booked me they requested I bring a white background with me. So I set up two v-flats to almost create a photobooth type of experience.

It didn’t take long for family (like mum and dad above) and friends to warm up to get their pictures taken and soon our poses were getting sillier and sillier! I mean I need very little encouragement – and they delivered!

These are my type of clients!

I love my big sister, really…
Airth Castle Takeover

The birthday girl was keen on a group picture on the stone staircase in the main restaurant and in my opinion what the birthday girl wants, she gets.

So I wandered through diners tables and happily got in their way to get a few images for the birthday girl.

Birthday Presents

Now you may be thinking well this is all very extravagant and frivolous and hey, why not! You only turn 21 once right?

But…before the party sat down for their resplendent birthday feast  Amy gave a little speech. Instead of birthday gifts, she had asked for donations to the charity her Aunt Michelle is involved with in Aberdeen, Abernecessities is supporting local, underprivileged families in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire with the essential items they need to care for their babies and children. Much to her Aunt’s complete surprise she then pulled out a massive box of donated items.
