I was delighted to be asked to photograph Aisha's 18th birthday party at Lahore Cafe Bar in Bradford, West Yorkshire. Aisha, her mum and best friend arrived in the biggest white limo I have ever seen! Upon arrival of the limo one of my cameras broke down and so I had to continue for the rest of the evening with only one camera. That's why professional photographers always carry two cameras!
Soon, the ground floor of the Lahore Bar was packed with Aisha's family and friends who enjoyed a delicious meal of curry and cake.
After the meal, Aisha and her best friend, Saima, decided that we should have an impromptu photo session so we went in search of a suitable venue. We ended up on the roof. So Aisha really can claim to have had a night on the tiles for her 18th birthday! Aisha and Saima walked out onto the roof while I kept one foot in the fire door to stop us getting locked out there.
The evening finished with the Lahore staff delivering a huge cake with sparklers on top. Apparently it was delicious, but alas, I was so full of curry and samosas that I couldn't manage a slice of cake!
Many thanks to Aisha for a lovely evening and I hope your photos will be a life-long reminder of your special night.
