To give you a rough idea the type of clothing, especially the Ladies hats, and the arrangement of guests etc looks very much like the style of my husband's grandparents marriage in 1915. If you could identify the bridal couples, maybe twins deciding to marry the same day? Or do you have any brothers or sisters marrying the same day in your extended Family?

Further thought.
Could this be a pre wedding photo before the marriage takes place? I say this because both brides are still veiled, and surley their veils would be lifted after the ceremony.
Presumably no markings from the photographer on the reverse of the photo. That can sometimes help because you can often discover the period they operated in.
