On reverse: Wedding, Rev & Mrs Harold Harding Jolly. This is the wedding group of the depositor's great-aunt, Margaret Amelia Woolmer and her husband Rev (later Canon) Newman Harold Harding Jolly which took place on 4 January 1917 at Shooters Hill in London, after much opposition from the bride's mother. The bride and groom are seated fourth and fifth from the right on the front row. The bride's mother, Mrs Amelia Ann Woolmer nee Beaumont is seated third from the right on the front row and her sister, Mrs Catherine Joanna Wansbrough nee Beaumont is second from the right on the front row. Standing second from the right on the second row from the front is the bride's father Rev Wesley Woolmer. Third row from the front, standing first left is bride's cousin Monty Wansbrough, in uniform. Second on the left, on the same row, is the groom's brother, Reg Jolly. Third left is probably a brother of the bride's father, and fourth left is the bride's youngest sister, Nellie Woolmer, the depositor's maternal grandmother. Sixth from left is bride's younger sister, Florence Woolmer. Standing on his own nearest the door at the very back of the group is the bride's eldest brother, Shirley Beaumont Woolmer. The couple were married by the Bishop of Sodor and Man, who is seated first left on the front row. This photograph was also taken on the day on which the depositor's maternal grandparents first met. 2nd Lieutenant J. N. Hudson had been given the Woolmer's address as a place to lodge while training at the Woolwich arsenal. He arrived in the evening after the wedding; Nellie answered the door and showed him in and it was a case of love at first sight. They eventually married in 1921, again after very much opposition from Mrs Woolmer.
