50th Birthday Extravaganza


Wow! What a fantastic night we had on the 25th June at the magnificent Hinchingbrooke House.  Our client had decided that turning 50 was a landmark not to be missed and engaged us to create a magical party night for approximately 100 of his closest friends and family.

We had guests flying in from Ireland and Canada and from all around the UK so we wanted to give them all a night to remember. Our brief from the Client was fairly simple; he wanted to use Andy Wilsher Sings as he had seen him at one of our weddings the year before and he wanted the colour navy as a theme and above all as with any party, he wanted to throw a party that everyone talked about afterwards!

Gas flambeaux lit up the entrance to Hinchingbrooke House, a wonderful Tudor country house built around an early 13th century nunnery.

Guests were welcomed into the drinks & canapé reception by the gorgeous Jenni and Charlotte our wonderful showgirls who looked resplendent in all their outfits.

The evening progressed into the Inner Hall which had been re-named for the night as the ‘Jones’ room with our stunning 5ft light up letters spelling the clients surname as a surprise.  The super talented Andy Wilsher provided the entire night’s entertainment with his first set being Rat Pack which got everyone up dancing.

A BBQ buffet followed with guests dining in the Assembly Room and they were also treated to Baileys and Champagne cupcakes created by Sweet P Allergen Free (gluten free) which looked fantastic on our custom made ivory cupcake tower!

The showgirls performed 3 dances to both the Rat Pack and the second set from Andy Wilsher which was a Robbie Williams tribute finishing on a disco to end the night.

The showgirls performed a routine to Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend and we think this photo taken during this dance shows what a beautiful evening was had by all; our client, his guests and the performance artists.

Our thanks go to the wonderful staff at Hinchingbrooke House led by Terri Hall and her team; and the awesome Andy Wilsher Sings.  Photo and video credits: Martin Rimsky and Jackie of Andy Wilsher.
