Rye Harbour wedding

This photo was sent by Julian Exeter, whose mother recently died.
"The photo shows the wedding party of my Mother's parents taken on 10th Sept 1906. I assume the wedding was in the local church though I confess I have never checked, but my Mother always maintained the village was decorated for the occasion. My grandmother - Harriette Louise Caister Smith (of Rye) is standing just to the left of the Martello Tower, while my grandfather - George Arscott James (from London) is seated. The photographer was E Whiteman of Rye. I assume the area is now the car park adjacent to the tower."

If they look this happy on their wedding day it doesn't auger well for the rest of their lives :-)
