City Lit stories- Lucy, Dave and Gene Wilson

Lucy, Dave and Gene Wilson

There's more to fall in love with at City Lit than just a new skill or career. Just ask Lucy and Dave Wilson...

"It's a classic boy meets girl love story. We were two young people who arrived ready to learn a few new camera tricks on a cold winter morning. We both love learning so the taster day really gave us a chance to sample a few new things and give them a whirl to see if they suited us. We picked a photography taster workshop, the class was interactive and students were given the chance to try out equipment and work in groups. We got chatting during the class and agreed to meet up for a drink the following week. As with all good love stories there were sparks which very soon burst into a whirlwind romance."

"We married in March at the Mayfair Library and headed off on our honeymoon to Paris. But we also had a little souvenir in tow. Just before our wedding we found out that we were having a baby and I am very pleased to say that Gene Gabriel Wilson was born in mid-November and is doing wonderfully well. We have rather taken to the idea of marking our anniversary each year by trying out a new hobby." 

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee meeting the love of your life at one of courses but Lucy and Dave's story proves that anything is possible!
