Prince William and Catherines wedding - by my hubby Ian

Ian, was very privileged to be asked to photograph Prince William and Kate Middleton (now Catherine) meeting all the leading dignitaries on their wedding day, before their reception.

On April 29th 3.30am he left home to head into London (the roads in London closed at 5am) - he had to be at Buckingham Palace for 7am.

On the day he was very fortunate to be able to sit and watch the wedding unfold on a television in the palace - I however was watching it over brunch with our friends Jen and Laila! Sadly no assistants were allowed!

After the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's stunning wedding, and that balcony kiss they came down for their stunning reception where Ian was very lucky to be waiting to take official receiving line photographs.

He was the only photographer, invited to do so... so as you can imagine I am very proud.

Amusingly the Sun ran a pull out feature by "their photographer" Arthur Edwards. With a great double pages spread of the couple meeting the dignitaries. It didn't say that Arthur had taken the shots but neither did it say he hadn't, it certainly never mentioned that the images were taken by Ian!

Ian's agent sold the shot to the Sun to use without credit so they have done nothing wrong, so ultimately it is a huge compliment... clearly Ian and other photographers used in the supplement are clearly very talented, otherwise surely they would have just used their own photographers work
