40 years together

Melissa was hosting a dinner party to celebrate her parents' 40th wedding anniversary, and contacted me about taking some portraits on the night as a surprise gift for them. Melissa and Matt were recently married, and she wanted to thank her Mum and Dad for everything they'd done for her. Her parents and their friends were instructed to dress up and arrive on time but didn't know they were to be photographed, so we allowed them a glass of champagne to calm any camera nerves before we began! Everything was all set up before they arrived so after some quick photos I packed up my gear and left them to enjoy their evening.
