I assume you mean the post by peterwn.
I don't know the 19th century precedent he mentions, but the law on
confidentiality has moved on a long way since then. For example, the
Douglas/Zeta-Jones case that I alluded to helped to develop the law on
confidentiality towards establishing that there is a right to privacy in
appropriate cases. I suppose it might also be brought to bear in a case
about less public, domestic wedding photos where appropriate.
