Need help in dating this photograph of Wilson Fitton and Family

Wilson Fitton, L., is the only member of this wedding we have identified. I think it may have been taken around 1900 in Huddersfield Yorkshire. Sorry it is so fuzzy.

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

It's very fuzzy so I can't see the detail too well. I've got 2 pics in my dating books that are similar - one is 1898-1900 and the other in dated 1904-1908.

Wilson & Mary Fitton had a son Harvey who married Emily Edith Green 1900 Huddersfield so it could be a possible for the wedding. They also had another 3 sons so it could possibly be one of them  :(

Was Emily Green's father called Herbert?

The only Emily Edith Green I can find her father is John, so perhaps the wrong wedding. Another son of Wilson Fitton was John Herbert Fitton who married Edith Hurst 1900 in Newcastle under Lyme, Staffs also a possible.
