Photographer Mike Petch has been praised by singer Gabrielle for the pictures he took of her at the Creme de la Creme charity ball.
The annual event organised by Stockport company Entertainment Today, based in Davenport, is held at the home of former footballer Ashley Ward and his wife Dawn, one of the stars of the Real Housewives of Cheshire, in aid of Caudwell Children.
Mike, a Marketing Stockport member, owns M Photographic and is well known for his photographs of Stockport County matches.
Gabrielle wrote on Facebook: “What a fantastic night at the Creme de la Creme Ball for Caudwell Children on Saturday. Thanks to M Photographic for these lovely photos.”
Other stars at the event in Cheshire included Hollyoaks stars Stephanie Waring and Ross Adams, ex-model Danielle Lloyd, former Emmerdale actress Sheree Murphy, and former Shameless actress Tina Malone.
Mike said: “I was a great opportunity for us to photograph a star such as Gabrielle.
“She was fantastic on stage, practically everyone was up dancing, and it took me back to my youth as I was in high school when she released ‘Dreams’.
“We’ve worked with Entertainment Today on the Creme de la Creme ball for four years now, and are very grateful to them and Dawn for asking us back to shoot their fantastic event.”
