The High Sheriff’s Garden Party.
It was recently I had pleasure to be asked to photograph Simon Hall MBE’s, High Sheriff’s Garden Party. Simon Hall is the current High Sheriff for the County of Essex. The high sheriff’s principle role is to attend Royal visits, add support to the emergency services and charitable movements within their county.
The Garden Party is an annual event held by the High Sheriff to thank local charities and the emergency services for their tireless and often overlooked work.
Unfortunately the weather didn’t play ball and it rained most of the afternoon. However this didn’t stop guests enjoying the event and the party was still a great success.
For me it was a fabulous opportunity to capture informal photographs of Essex’s dignitaries while they enjoyed this fabulous event.
I was also able to pass on this wonderful framed group to Simon which I took to commemorate Lord Petre recently stepping down as the Lord Lieutenant for the county of Essex.
