Over on the Information Commissioner’s Office website, they explain that the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are currently a working document and therefore subject to change, so we commit to doing our best to keep up, but if they go and make a load of changes just before peak wedding season, all bets are off until November. Editing your wedding photos and videos comes first.
