Helen Bartlett Photography took part in a fantastic event yesterday called One Bigg Spooky Party. Fulham Palace was transformed into a halloween extravaganza with cobwebs, mice, bats, balloons and pumpkins galore decorating the grounds. Over 500 witches, goblins, zombies, superheroes and ghoulish ghosts (and their parents) filled the Palace on a glorious autumn day, and were entertained by numerous children’s birthday party entertainers including Sharky and George, Mad Science and our friend Anna at Snapdragon Face Painting, who had the longest queue for her amazing face-painting throughout the day.
The Celebrity Reptiles Animal Encounters also made a massive impression – we could hear the children shrieking in delight from our stand! They had enormous tarantulas and a huge python, which the children were allowed to hold in a long line extending over 12 feet long – it was quite a sight! There was also pumpkin decorating, apple-pressing and dance displays outside in the grounds.
A special mention must go to our stilt-walking friend at Bertie and Boo, who was a very big (and very tall) fan of Helen Bartlett Photography!
Kath, Tom and I had a wonderful time at the event and enjoyed meeting lots of new people, and also catching-up with clients who were visiting with their families. We showcased many examples of Helen’s work as a photographer of children’s birthday parties in London, and also as a family and children’s photographer. Here are some photos I took during the day, and we will let you know via the blog when we’re taking part in future events as it was so much fun.
