Wedding photograph of Hubert L DOWN and Ivy Stark LAKEMAN 1928 – 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 first photograph is of a family group showing the bride and groom, parents, best man and bridesmaids, as below:

On the reverse is written Ivy Stark LAKEMAN married Hubert DOWN in January 1928 with Cornwall written in the bottom right hand corner, again as below:

On a quick check of marriage registrations on the internet I found that Hubert L DOWN married Ivy S LAKEMAN in the January quarter of 1928 in the St Germans Registration District in Cornwall.

Ivy Stark LAKEMAN was born in the January quarter of 1901 in the St Germans Registration District of Cornwall and the 1901 census records shows her living with her parents George H and Bessie M LAKEMAN and brother Aubrey G LAKEMAN aged 3 years.

Ivy Stark DOWN (nee LAKEMAN) died in June 1997 aged 96 and her death registration in Plymouth in Devon gives her actual date of birth as 4th December 1900.

Hubert Lawson DOWN was born in the April quarter of 1897 in the St Germans Registration of Cornwall and the 1901 census records show him aged 3 years living at Millbrook in Cornwall with his parents John and Ellen DOWN and brothers Cyril C DOWN aged 11, Reginald J DOWN aged 9 and Lewis W DOWN aged 5.

Hubert Lawson DOWN died in June 1957 in the St Germans Registration District of Cornwall aged 59.

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