Rather than  speculating, the marriage certificate should be consulted for names, occupations etc.

The marriage certificate would also provide names of witnesses and maybe they can be traced too?

Wonder if Rose Turner was in some way linked to the family of Rev Frederick Storrs Turner and
Sophia M. Harmer

If you check their family tree they have children listed as born in Hong Kong

It seems Turner was a married name ( husband was Arnold Turner ) She was "Cheung" before that.

Can you post a snip with the details on the passenger ship please & what yr did they emigrate?

Just checking that the cafe was in Liverpool? Strangely there was also a cake shop/tea rooms at 105 Upper Parliament St Nottingham in 1925/6

This was prior to the marriage & would seem too coincidental with the address  :-\
