Part one is from June 1988 and the build-up to my wedding to Chip on the 30th. You don't get to see any pics of that, because herself insisted, not unreasonably, that we should take prints so that we could show them around. And I handed my cameras over to Bill on the day itself. Part Two is still in Exeter in the middle of last month

In part one today, home from Exeter in the middle of April. Part two starts on the first or second of July 1988, and Chip and I are in a hotel in Lyme Regis. It's our honeymoon, and the weather ain't great – something you could not really tell from the snapping, which was frenzied in the odd burst of sunshine – but at least there's a TV in our room, and it's Wimbledon fortnight, so plenty of tennis to watch. Between rain breaks.
