It's not a 1917 photograph.  You're looking for an event in the first decade of the 20th century.

I think the second marriage is correct, her father is the same as on the first marriage certificate,Harry Lewis a labourer, Mary Anne signs with an X as again in her first marriage and a witness is William Powell, her son. Thank you so much for finding this second marriage certificate

Agree with Gadget....not 1917...the fashion is typically Edwardian. If Daughter Agnes married in 1904 then she doesn't appear to be wearing a wedding ring in the photo.

Do not know who the 2nd witness Winifred Powell is, I am guessing that it could be the wife of one of the sons of William Powell and Mary Anne.
Could the clothes they are wearing  be older as they could not afford the 1917 look?
Under a magnifying glass I can see something on Agnes's finger so assumed a wedding ring and I am now thinking the young girl on the far right is Agnes's daughter as the age is about right. Before 1910 Agnes was living in Portsmouth but in 1911 she was in Penarth South Wales. Her husband was a soldier then labourer so not much money to pay for the family to travel from Portsmouth but easier from Penarth. All assumptions I know but the 2nd marriage certificate has more clues to lead me to the fact that Mary Anne married twice, lastly in 1917.

I very much doubt that all these men would be present at a 1917 wedding...there was a war on.

I haven't read everything but I must disagree that it's Edwardian.
My first thought was the war years.
The younger men are wearing collar bars. This was a fashion that came about during the war,also some of those large brimmed hats are a late war style. In addition the young lady at the front has a cut-away collar also a late war style. So I would suggest 1916-19.
During the war men did get leave particularly Officers.

The 2 men in the photo who would have been eligible  to be called up for the war are in "protected occupations"  eg working in coal mines, and would have been exempt as far as I know.

My grandfather, 2 uncles, and 2 great uncles  were miners but served in the RWF. They volunteered though.

It's very rare to see a large wedding group in WW1 - You're lucky  :)
