I'm almost sure they aren't immediate family so they may be friends of my grandparents or possibly more distant relatives.

The wedding photo is lovely; the bride looks wonderfully elegant in her 1940s dress and large floppy hat - I would love to find out who they are.

The location, and type of building, in the first picture doesn't look to be in England Caroline. Somewhere near a coast, but I can't help with their names.

Thanks for looking Tony.
Many thanks to the Facebook Nottinghamshire Genealogy group who identified him as an RAF pilot. I mentioned this to my Mum which jogged her memory! She told me he is Herbert George (known as George) Currie, my grandmother's cousin. He was born in Nottm in 1914 & went to the High School. His wife was Mabel from Zimbabwe (Rhodesia then) and they married in Bulawayo & lived all their lives there. Puzzle solved!
