can anyone identify where this photo was taken please..its of my aunts wedding day dad on the left and mom on the right...far as the family know aunt did not marry in church and the way she is dressed does suggest that so i am thinking at the register office which i think was in edmund st...so maybe they took the short walk to chamberlain square for photographs but i cant be certain

thanks folks

The building behind looks rather like one that would have been in Edmund Street area (maybe still there). It is something ****on Chambers. It looks like they are posed in front of a statue or similar. The ladies clothing suggest the 'New Look'. I think many items were still on ration at the time.
