Please help date wedding photograph

Postby mbford222 » Mon Jul 06, 2009 2:40 am

The attached photograph was taken by A.Seaman and Sons, Sheffield. The file number is 25057. The company has not replied to my request for assistance, so I am turning to this forum. The company was established in 1896 but Sheffield family weddings took place in 1921, 1946 and 1956. Could this be the 1921 wedding?

If anyone could give me an opinion I would appreciate it.

I would not like to give a date for the photograph, however have you noticed that the groom appears to be wearing a wedding ring? I don't know when it became traditional for men to wear wedding rings but that might also help you to date the photograph.

The photographers may be researching you enquiry so may get back to you in time. It depends how long it is since you contacted them. If only a few weeks, I would wait a while longer before giving up hope that they will reply.

Have you considered the possibility that it may not be a family wedding? It could be a photograph of family friends or neighbours.

Thank you for pointing out the groom's wedding ring. I had missed that completely. I e-mailed the photographers in April, but I think I will write a letter.
Thank you for your help.
