I love looking at all these wonderful pics. The third photo titled 'Bill and Cherry's wedding' is actually Christopher Hudson's christening. Grandpa Gibbs is holding Serena aged 3 who definitely wasn't born out of a rather uncomfortable grasp! No sign of Bill and Cherry anywhere!
George writes: Thanks for the tip Alex. I have moved the photo down to get it into chronological order and changed the caption.
