I have this photo and believe the males to be the Leyland brothers from Spring Street Scholes - James, John and Robert Leyland. Does anyone have them in their family tree

Do you know what their address was in Spring St.?

Was there quite an age gap in the brothers, Jim?
I only ask because the two men on the outside look much older than the groom.
There also doesn't seem to be much resemblance between the three.
I'm wondering if they could ne the fathers of the bride and groom.

Obviously two brides looking at the bouquets.

I have seen a lot of 1930's official wedding photos where the bridesmaid's bouquets are just as big and elaborate as the brides. The veil separates the bride from the bridesmaid though I think.

1901 census lists them living at number 1 Spring Street.
Robert born in 1888, John in 1893 and James in 1895.
