70th Birthday Celebration at Matfen Hall

What finer surroundings to celebrate your 70th birthday than Matfen Hall? I spent an hour photographing some family groups and mingling shots before everyone went in for their meal.

The birthday girl wanted photos with her grandchildren and immediate family. Everyone gets together so infrequently that it was a good opportunity to do this. She was also keen to just have time in the Drawing Room listening to the string quartet. I snuck out to photograph the Library restaurant all set up for the meal. Altogether a very elegant affair, although beforehand, she was worried that some of the men would be a bit worse for wear after watching the rugby in the afternoon. Thankfully everyone was well behaved and she had a lovely evening.
