Event – High Tea| Fairlawn Boutique Hotel & Spa

Angela contacted me a while ago to photograph a high tea she was organising. It was held at the Fairlawn Boutique and Spa Hotel in Sandton. I had never been there before but when I arrived the beauty of the large villa house and the rolling green lawns with a covered terrace made for the perfect location for a bit if spoiling with a high tea.

Angela and her three sisters organised a surprise high tea for their mom “just because”. It was not her birthday or anything they just wanted to spoil her. They invited her closest friends and when mom arrived she was floored with all the love and care that her friends and family had gone through just for her. She apparently had always stated she wanted a canvas of her with her daughters hanging in the house – this is why I was there.

It was so special to capture these strong, beautiful and caring ladies all together celebrating. The high tea looked amazing – any flavour tea you could think of and the food that came out the kitchen looked too good to eat. There were cucumber sandwiches, macaroons, decadent cupcakes, scones and cream and many more.

Thank you for allowing me the privilege of capturing such a happy occasion.
