Hugo Burnand snap happy for Jubilee party time

13 APRIL 2012

Party fever will descend on the UK this June as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee is celebrated up and down the country.

One in ten of us is planning to throw a party, according to research carried out by drinks brand Schweppes, which has launched a competition to find Britain's best party hosts.




And leading the search for the three winners – and photographing them on the big day – will be official royal wedding photographer Hugo Burnand, who tells HELLO! he's hoping for scenes similar to the Silver Jubilee in 1977.

"It's got to be a gathering of the family or the community," he says. "We'd love to cover a street party – I think it's fun to go the traditional British route, so let's have lots of bunting, let's have Union Jacks and maybe even some cakes with pictures of the Queen on them.

"I'm hoping there's a fantastic person in the Outer Hebrides, as I really want to go up there and photograph the bunting on a cottage by the sea.



"So many people watched and celebrated the royal wedding last year and I think the Jubilee will be celebrated even more," he adds.

"People enjoy that sense of community brought together."
