Jordan Baker and Jeff Purser were married on Saturday 3rd of December 2011. The ceremony took place on the cliff top at Clovelly.

Afterwards family and friends gathered at the Clovelly Bowling Club to celebrate the occasion. Jordan's proud parents Wendy and Stephen welcomed Jeff to our now even more extended family.

Below are some of my photos from the day. 

The flowers were photographed on our recent trip to South America and I used them as inspiration for the cake decoration; my most elaborate cake making achievement to-date!

Energy and a ‘good life’

 

 

 

Energy

With the invention of the first practical steam engines at the turn of the seventeenth century, and mechanical energy’s increasing utility to replace the physical labour of humans and animals, human civilisation took a new turn.
