Wedding photograph of Edwin E WAKEFIELD and Edith BRADBURY 1918 – are you related?

I have recently found three individual old wedding photograph postcards all of different couples, but they all have useful clues written on the back to help with trying to identify the people in them, which could hopefully lead to them being reunited with a family member.

The third photograph is of a bride and groom, as below:

On the reverse is written ‘With Kindest Regards from E E & E WAKEFIELD 3rd August 1918, again as below – could these be the names of the bride and groom?

On a quick check of marriage registrations on the internet I found that Edwin E WAKEFIELD married Edith BRADBURY in the September quarter of 1918 in the Holbeck Registration District in Yorkshire.

Again I have been lucky enough to find a copy of the marriage certificate online that shows that Edwin Eugene WAKEFIELD married Edith BRADBURY on 3rd August 1918 in Holbeck in Yorkshire – Edwin’s father is named as  Charles WAKEFIELD and Edith’s as John BRDABURY.

Edwin is a widower aged 31 and his occupation is shown as an Engineer and Edith is aged 25 and her occupation is shown as a School Teacher.

Do you have a connection to the WAKEFIELD or BRADBURY families as it would be wonderful to reunite this lovely old family photograph with a relative if possible.
