A Royal Occasion: Chazak at Banqueting House


Our team of Amanda and Blake were thrilled to photograph a wonderful evening, as Chazak hosted their second Annual Dinner, this time at the truly magnificent Banqueting House on Whitehall, just a few metres from the Houses of Parliament in Westminster. This was an evening of philanthropic action, Royal splendour, classical music, heartfelt storytelling, plentiful laughter, warm embraces, and whisky. Plenty of whisky.

Photographing Chazak events is a homecoming for us, with so many familiar faces in the room coming together to support a great organisation, spearheaded by three inspirational figures – Rabbi Shlomo Farhi, Rabbi Moshe Levy and Rabbi Yitsy David.

Guests heard all about Chazak’s activities throughout the evening, with musical interludes from the sublime string quartet and the incredible West End starlet Ilan Galkoff. It was a delight again to work alongside our friends at Food Story, who ensured that guests were treated to truly fine dining, the wonderful Toastmaster Steven Warwick and also Leor Melehi behind the video cameras.

Massive congratulations to the force-of-nature that is Hannah Flax for organising this event with such panache. Chazak will surely go from strength to strength. Here are some of our favourite images…
