25 Years of Inspiration: Langdon at the V&A


On Monday evening, our team of Amanda and Blake were in one of London’s most prestigious locations, the Victoria and Albert Museum, to photograph the Langdon Charity Annual Dinner. This was a celebration of the 25th Anniversary of this utterly magnificent organisation, and it was the fourth year running that we have had the honour of being official photographers for the Annual Dinner.

At the heart of Langdon’s ethos is a strong desire to enable Jewish people with learning disabilities to lead independent and fulfilling lives, achieved by providing members with places to live, and supporting them to find and secure work, and socialise as a community within their local community.

There were two keynote speakers on the evening, the first being Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis who praised the work that Langdon carry out every single day whilst recounting an entertaining visit to a Langdon centre when he held an open Q and A with members, who were very honest and direct in their questioning. That was also a special occasion that we were privileged to photograph.

The second keynote speaker was former England rugby captain and World Cup Winner, the inspirational Phil Vickery. Phil spoke from the heart about his own life, and the challenges involved in truly fulfilling his potential. He recounted stories of his childhood, his family, and of course his stellar rugby career. It was an honest address which was appreciated by everyone present.

It was a pleasure as always to work with the entire team at Tony Page, who ensured that guests were hosted with the finest hospitality, whilst the grand space was made even more stunning by Fisher Productions.

We wish Langdon many more years of inspirational success in helping disabled young people live independent and fulfilling lives, we are proud to work with such a deserving charity. Here are some of our favourite images from a landmark event…
