Photo date please - Stockport/Macclesfield area
« on: Sunday 01 October 17 13:40 BST (UK) »
This photo was bought from a dealer so no idea of names or exact location. It's clearly a rather grand wedding. The photo itself measures around 6 inches x 4 inches and is mounted on card with curved corners, gold lettering and gold edges to the card. The reverse is completely blank.

The photo was taken by "Bullock Bros, Stockport & Macclesfield" who had a studio in Stockport between 1882 and 1907 (longer in Macclesfield) so that provides an approximate date range to start from. I was hoping someone might be able to narrow it down a bit by looking at the clothes and hats.
Of course, if anyone can identify the actual location or people that would be fantastic!
Many thanks for any help.

You didn't ask for this and I haven't done anything except lighten it up a little bit so we can see the 'happy couple' more clearly.  Hope you don't mind.   ;)   Just playing around.

It is in very good condition and a lovely photo.
