Birthday party in the Ashmolean

Stephen took a short break from his usual work photographing children, to record the glamour and lively conversation at the joint birthday party for Charles (50) and Charles (80) in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.

Here are just a few of the images from the evening.

As dusk settled in Oxford, guests arrived at the Ashmolean.

Meanwhile delicious canapés were being prepared...

... and there was time for friends to catch up over a few glasses of champagne.

Charles welcomed the guests for a private tour of the Ashmolean's collection.

Then it was time for a splendid dinner among the statues, rounding off a wonderful evening.
