Not too long ago I dropped into the Sanderson for a Mad Hatter’s Tea party to celebrate my good friend Mariko’s birthday and blog relaunch. Mariko and I have been working together for about 2 or 3 years now, shooting stories both in London and abroad. So even though I had very little time on my hands that day, this was one thing I was not going to miss. I slotted in a quick 15 minutes in my calendar and after shooting all the photos of Mariko’s big event, I awkwardly slotted myself into the photo above (you can tell, I look about as comfortably placed as a piece of tofu on a fast food joint menu).
While living most of my life behind the lens or one Excel spreadsheet after another, I unfortunately missed out on the lovely high tea itself. But I did get the pleasure of Mariko’s and the bunch of blogger babes’ company, got to read all about it here later. From left to right in the final photo: Alexandra Miro, Julia Lundin, Mariko Kuo, Becky Ringer, Sara Mikaela, Monikh Dale, Hannah Coniam-Thompson, moi, Lorna Andrews, Alice Shreeve.
