Leading prolab Loxley Colour and royal wedding photographer Andrew Dunsmore are over the moon after The Queen and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expressed delight at receiving photograph albums filled with images of the royal wedding ceremony in Westminster Abbey last April.
Dunsmore, who runs Croydon-based Picture Partnership, worked with Loxley Colour’s marketing manager Chris Kay to develop and dispatch the top of the range Bellissimo Perfetto albums to both Balmoral Castle and St. James’s Palace.
Picture Partnership are official photographers for Westminster Abbey and were
granted two key positions in the Abbey during the ceremony.
Said Dunsmore: “By 3pm that afternoon we already had a large number of images up on the Abbey’s website but it wasn’t until after the event that I thought about creating albums for the Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
My background in news photography meant I was primed to capture newsworthy cameo moments, like Prince William unable to resist looking over his shoulder to see his bride walking down the aisle. I put the idea of creating albums to Chris at Loxley and together we produced six of them. I couldn’t have done this without Loxley’s expertise.”
In a letter from Balmoral Castle the Queen’s assistant private secretary,
Doug King said:
“Her Majesty sincerely appreciates your thoughtfulness in sending this generous gift and has greatly enjoyed looking through the images of the day. Thank you for producing such a lovely memento”.
Chris Kealey, assistant private secretary to HRH the Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge said: “Their Royal Highnesses were delighted and so touched that you
went to such trouble’
Added Loxley Colour’s Chris Kay: “We were very happy to help Andrew with this project and to play an active part in that historic day. We decided to provide Bellissimo Perfetto albums which boast high quality leather covers that are actually produced in a tannery that itself has long-standing royalty connections.”
