Pleated ankle length skirts were fasionable in 1923, although the couple posing for a wedding photo may not have been fashion gurus.
The 5 ladies photo looks early 1930's.

I think maybe 50s for the wedding photo and first thought was 30s for the group of ladies, however I can see them perhaps wearing those dresses into the 50s too. My old grandmother always dressed like that, even into the 60s and 70s.  ;)

1930s for the group photo and early 1950s for the wedding photo - I'd say maybe 1951. I went to my cousin's wedding in that year and can remember the women wearing dresses and hats like that.

I think 50's for the wedding , I remember ladies wearing similar hats in the 60's.
As for the group one , to me it could be anywhere within a couple of decades. Sorry.

Addition to earlier post -

The suit and, especially , haircut of the man in the wedding photo is very early 1950s.

I remember ladies wearing similar hats in the 60's.



a-l - I didn't see anyone wearing hats like that in the 1960s in GB    ;D
