Hi......not much to go on but a couple of possible are.....

July 1915
 Sgt. Major john Chapman and Emmeline Goodman. The roll of honour records him as RE.
The other George Baker to Elizabeth Mary Seems( various spellings of name on different documents).again the roll of honour states RE snapper.
George & Elizabeth married at the Wesleyan chapel. That did not have this amount of space around it.
John's bride was the organist at the Baptist chapel but that fronts onto the road so not there.
The parish church All Saints has a bricked/ cobbled walk way. It rained all day when we married and I was nervous about it being slippery.it may have been different back then.

Thanks for your thoughts, tazzie.

Neither of those names appear written on any of the other photos, so I think that one might remain a mystery.

Back on page 8 of this thread, my sister posted a medals document with a few names on it, including KEELING, William E., our grandfather.
At the top of the document, two places above our grandfather, is a Sgt. THOMPSON, William E.

We have several photos of a Sgt. Ted Thompson, in Leighton Buzzard, and some locations in France (specifically, Bailleul and Yvetote).
I guess that "E" stands for Edward and it is the same man listed in the medals document.

Here is Ted Thompson, in Leighton Buzzard, July 1915. I think he is not yet a sergeant here:
