Hello there everyone, dp here.
Yesterday saw a very special taking out of the David Purslow Photo Booth – The photo booth is incredibly popular at weddings, parties, proms and charity events. I also have an events photography company called Event Photography Specialists which is located on the web at http://www.epsphoto.co.uk
The photo booth came into existence mainly for the event photography specialists business. It offers onsite photography and printing of photos at events, these are proper lab quality photographs and are delivered in 60 seconds.
I started offering it for Weddings and it went down a storm. The main selling point of the photo booth is the ability to go from pressing the shutter release button on the camera to producing lab quality photos that the customer takes away within 60 seconds, matted and bagged ready to go which is hugely popular with all kinds of events.
Last night saw the 10 anniversary of the Ty Hafan Butterfly Ball – A very special charity event which raises money for the Ty Hafan Charity. I have worked with Ty Hafan on various balls and events almost 4 years now and honestly feel great about giving something back. Ty Hafan is children s hospice for the terminally ill, What really strikes you when you see the work that Ty Hafen does is that none of these kids will reach adulthood. Ty Hafan is fully funded by charity donations only and it takes millions of pounds each year to run. Ty Hafan Patron is HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales. If you would like to know more about the amazing work Ty Hafan does or would be interested in making a donation or attending one of the Ty Hafan events (which really does give you a warm fuzzy feeling) then please visit their website at http://www.tyhafan.org
So as I said last night saw the 10th anniversary of the Butterfly Ball which was held at the brand new Cardiff City Football Club ground in Cardiff. I was assisted by Gayle who operated the printing station and who was responsible for collecting the money, printing the photos, smoozing the customers and delivering the final product to the customer – Gail did an amazing job so a big shout out to her for helping out last night, and (as you will see from the photos) she looked amazing in her ball gown. I remember looking over towards the print station at one point in the evening and seeing around 25 people all excitedly gathered around Gayle
David Purslow Photography donated a family portrait photo session anywhere in Wales and a 4 ft x 3 ft fine art canvas wrap. We raised £500.00 from the auction alone for Ty Hafen last night so we are very happy. We also attended for free as we have done for all the Ty Hafan events and will continue to do so – Its really a great and worthwhile charity.
The guests who attended last night had a fantastic night, If ever you get the chance to attend one of the Ty Hafan balls or events you should go. The food was to die for and the evening was hosted by the very lovely Sian Lloyd from ITV We managed to get Sian onto the photo booth for a couple of photos.
Following the meal the guests were treated to a fantastic acoustic set from Wales’s very own Cerys Matthews
And another Celebrity guest and another Sian Lloyd – This Sian is an old acquaintance of mine, I have worked with Sian on many of the BBC Wales’s roadshows and bumped into her several times at Broadcasting House in Llandaff while covering events for the BBC in my press days.
A few of the guests
and last but not least my stunning assistant for the eventing – thanks Gayle!
We didnt get home till almost 2 AM this morning but we had a GREAT time met up with some old friends from Ty Hafan, raised some seriously needed money for the charity and felt like we actually made a difference, we saw Cerys Matthews sing and got to see the new Cardiff City Football Club Ground (which is amazing) so all in all what a great night !
