Being a part of little Jake’s first birthday party felt like being a part of a fairy tale. The talented event planners from The Eventurer intricately mapped out the entire day. From the amazing circus themed décor to the activities for the kids, everything was amazing. I walked in with my camera and was blown away by the amount of detail that was put into making this day unforgettable.
The venue, Brighton School House Café on Church Street, was the perfect location. The space was planned out carefully in order for the day to be entertaining for both adults and children. One area was set up with food platters and bubbly for the ‘grown ups’, while there was a smaller room for the little ones to play and eat snacks.
Heaps of balloons, colourful signs and confetti adorned the whole café; on a table was a tower of cupcakes decorated to look like circus characters from Let Them Eat Cake. Tiny little party hats were placed amongst streamers, party gifts sat ready for guests to collect, and life-sized balloon men stood in the corner.
We made sure to start with a mini family photography session. First I took photographs of the lucky birthday boy with his brother and parents. The family was full of smiles and clearly ready to celebrate this special day. We then included extended family in the portrait, much to their delight. They all looked at Jake with expressions full of love and excitement.
Once the rest of the guests started arriving, I began capturing beautiful candid moments with the children enjoying the hired entertainment from Animals 2U. The circus theme was complete with a friendly clown, balloon character making and a gorgeous pony for the kids to pat and ride. It was such a delight seeing the children’s faces light up as they first laid eyes on him!
The whole event was very accurately entitled Jake’s Greatest Show on Earth – and it was just that! This was a first birthday party that was so memorable and it guaranteed a great day for both the adults and children. I am so grateful to have been a part of it. Well done to everyone involved in making this day so special!
