Another one with no details on the back. The mat is in bad shape with very odd shaped fading and has been cut with scissors around the edge making it very uneven. The photograph is on a smaller mat which is about 75% lifted off the larger mat. I don't know the uniform the men are wearing but I would presume it's the NZ Army. On the best man's collar the badge has a large X or IX in the middle of it. The groom's collar badges I can't make out.

I would appreciate it if anyone could date to an approximation either this or the previous photograph please. I did find a photo of a military man online here wearing a similar uniform but with slight differences, taken in 1911 so this one might be later than that. Taken by the same photographer but in 1911 he was just J C Morton of Auckland. He probably operated within the years 1870s to 1930s.
Amongst the D W Layland Collection there are various photos credited to J C Morton, Glenmore Art Studios, they are available in the Print File Room at the Auckland Museum.
The best I could do of the three lots of badges, the last one I've just noticed on the bestman's chest.
