Today I had the privilege to photograph Yasmin’s Batmitzvah at The Renaissance Chancery Court Hotel in Holborn.

Yasmin and her family are beautiful people, and the ballroom had been decked out with the most amazing production lighting by Uptown Events so that it looked like a pink paradise. There were LED uplighters on the columns, pin spots on the tables, assorted multicoloured lighting effects behind the band and even a pink LED dance floor.
The food was delicious and presented by a new arrival on the Kosher circuit called Silva Catering. The family had brought the Sun Band over from Israel who hardly stopped playing for a minute, and wowed the crowd with sets of Israeli, Arabic, Rap and other contemporary music. The guests hardly sat down all evening, and Yasmin’s father and his former school friends danced the night away with so much energy it was as if they were still teenagers.

But the biggest surprise of the evening for Yasmin and her Mum was a guest appearance by Ruth Lorenzo who was their favourite star from X factor 2008. This was a top secret surprise planned by Yasmin’s Dad. Ruth sang all the songs from her X Factor debut, and the partying crowd became frenzied with excitement.
Yasmin’s friends screamed, and if the party wasn’t hot enough before Ruth Lorenzo arrived, it gave me the most wonderful photo opportunities.
