A fantastic awards ceremony in the heart of London
Event Photography takes us to such a huge variety of venues and types of event. From partys and award ceremonies at the best hotels and locations through to team building in a field in Surrey! The Top Employers Institute Awards Ceremony at the London Hilton Park Lane was an amazing event with hundreds of delegates and over 90 companies winning awards including some of the UK’s biggest brands including Starbucks, Pepsi and Harrods.
As the dedicated event photographers for the evening, our aim was to capture as much of the event as possible including the energy, the atmosphere and of course the event as a whole. A huge amount of effort had gone into the event and we wanted to ensure they had a huge range of images
Drinks Reception with magicians
The evening started with a black tie drinks reception with hundreds of guests enjoying the fizz and canapés and being entertained by an army of magicians who really helped to break the ice with. We worked throughout the time to capture as many natural images as possible. We strive to blend in and appear like ‘guests with a camera’ so as to be noticed less and achieve photos that capture the atmosphere of the evening.
The awards ceremony was hosted by the amazing Luke Kempner who you may have seen in Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side and Murder In Successville. He kept everyone entertained with stand up routines as well as great impressions such as Donald Trump!
Over 90 awards given out
The awards themselves were given out to over 90 companies from all over the UK. Each receiving the prestigious “Certified Excellence in Employee Conditions” Award on stage from Phil Sproston, Country Manager for UK & Ireland. As soon as they received their award, we took them to have a celebratory photo to remember the evening.
As you can see, everyone was very happy to receive the awards!!! Some came back for a second photo!
At the end of the award ceremony, it was time to photograph a big group shot of all the winners! We managed to get everyone on stage and Luke gave everyone a countdown. No pressure on getting the photo right at all!!!!

Dancing until the early hours!
By the end of the awards, everyone was in the mood for dancing and there are few better party bands than Mixed Feelings! Their energy on stage was infectious and had the dance floor jumping! Even a temporary power outage couldn’t dampen their spirits with an impromptu drum solo and some acapella singing while everything was reset.
As you can see, the evening was an amazing success with so many guests partying until the early hours! Here’s looking forward to seeing everyone in 2020!!!
