Due to my inexperience with HTML and Sigil - and the fact that no errors were detected, it just seemed as though C&P, inserting the photos, and modifying formatting where necessary, would be a simple way to to about it.
For Word type (DOC), The WRITER2epub plugin for open Office/Libre Office does the job pretty good.

FWIW Paragraph Margins (top and botton is a great way to space paragraphs, not a blank line
Scene breaks are a special case, and I would creat a special style, just to control them.
