Toyota Millionaires South Africa 2013
Toyota Australia held an amazing event for their Australian Parts and Accessories devision as a thank you and Image Solutions Photography and Design was asked to be the function photographer for the function.
As always, no holds were barred and Toyota went all out with their big celebration. The teams at Dragonfly Africa and The Conference Room made sure that no guest were left unhappy and provided some of the more exciting evenings that I have been asked to be the function photographer for, for a long time.
The evening started with drinks at the Queen Victoria Hotel which had a surprise visit by a cheetah for the guests amazement as well as the chance to have their pictures taken with the cheetah. It was then off to a grand showcase held at the Jewel Africa where the guests could revel in the beautiful diamonds and even purchase some if the so wished. One lucky guest even won a diamond! Conversation and amazement at all the wonderful items on display was at the order of the day, all complimented by delicious canapes.
The evening continued on with fun and festivities held at The Grand in Granger Bay. Again, the interior was transformed into a spectacular gala hall with a stage for the bands and beautiful table arrangements. The bands were specially flown in from Australia for the evening. Guests were welcomed with the Cape Minstrels playing their tunes and with drinks in hand the guests made their way into the dining area. Glorious food, excellent entertainment, wonderful setting, awesome guests and a eerily misty evening made for an incredibly fun evening.
These are the type of functions a function photographer lives for!
Thanks goes out to Debbie Holmes (and her team) from Dragonfly and Colette Baini (and her team) from The Conference Room and Nadine from Toyota Australia for organising such a wonderful function.
