"Annie Barber and Mr Smith" double wedding

This unusual double wedding photo is apparently of Annie Barber to Mr Smith in 1907. However, Annie Barber married Mr Marston of Australia. A generation earlier saw Ann Barber marry Abraham Smith, but the brides and grooms would not be old enough for this to be them.

 

I therefore think that one of the newly married couples are Annie Barber and A F Marston, who married in December 1913. Although the abundance of flowers, makes me suspicious of this too.

 

The photograph was taken prior to September 1918, as Mary Barber (née Neale) is present in the photo (elderly woman with the dark head shawl) and she is known to have died in Sept 1918.
