Can you help date this wedding photo?

I would be so grateful for ideas about the date of this wedding photo. The bride's dress is so beautiful. The photo appears to have been taken at home.

As a guesstimate late 30's early 40's. the man is wearing what appears to be a nazi eagle badge.

I think the couple look Continental as she has a wedding ring on her right hand. I did think it was possible that the negative had been processed the wrong way round, so back to front, but do think they are not an English couple.
I would estimate the date anywhere between the 1920's and late 1930's.

The veil is very similar to one worn by my husband's grandmother for her wedding in 1933. The Nazi Eagle on the lapel probably suggests it's later than that however, as Hitler didn't become Chancellor until 1933.
