    Simon,

    I’ve just read that Tracy has passed away, incredibly sad and my thoughts are with Steve and Tracy’s family and friends. Life just isn’t fair. But Steve has one thing to hold on to right now apart from his wonderful memories of Tracy and that is the amazing set of photographs that you produced from their wedding.
    Well done, amazing images, you should be very proud.
    David.ReplyCancel
