A Knight’s Tale (47: Wedding And Honeymoon)

Our wedding took place at St Edmund’s Church, Beckenham, on 2nd March 1968.

We enjoyed a four day honeymoon at The Kings Arms, Ockley,

where these three portraits were produced while my new mother-in-law looked after Michael.

One of our walks took us up Leith Hill.

This abandoned house provided ample photo-opportunities near the inn, close by a

burning shed that brought spectators and the fire service to the scene. The shed was soon extinguished. The fire in me was not.

On our return I carried Jackie over the threshold of 76 Amity Grove, into which my father had, in readiness, moved my furniture from Ashcombe Road.
