What a surprise it was for the man in question - a surprise party thrown by his wonderful Wife to celebrate reaching the big 4-0.
Months in the planning, he knew nothing about it until he reached the door and found himself in front of 70 odd friends there to celebrate with him.... all letting party poppers off at the same time to welcome his entrance. Talk about being surprised he thought he was on his way to celebrate another friends 40th!
It was a great way to celebrate reaching the 40th milestone and a pleasure to photograph some of the evening for them.
Here's a random selection of just a few of the images from the evening.
