For the lasr two years we had wagered (pardon the pun to come) that this was the wedding of Hilda Grubb to Willliam Hill on 29 July 1907, that was until we heard from cookhamish83
a great nephew of William, denying that it was him in this photo and another related photo.
As you can see from the older notes below we did have the idea that this may be the wedding of Eva Lucy Grubb, on the occassion of her marriage to Gilbert Southall on 12 April 1900 and having asked a few followere to review the work of 2 years ago we are now sure that it is the Grubb - Southall wedding.

I always love a good wedding photo and this is one of the best you will find. The date range of 1901 to 1954 should be narrowed very quickly and I do hold out the hope of you getting the exact day correct. I also expect the names of some of the participants to be discovered. The bride has a big job on her hands, it will be difficult to fling that beautifully arranged bouquet over her shoulder!
and Niall McAuley
found the critical location, date and subject "evidence" on this one. In short, while this could be Eva Lucy Grubb, on the occassion of her marriage to Gilbert Southall on 12 April 1900, the general consensus is that it is more likely to be a photo of the marriage of her sister Hilda Grubb in 1907. John Spooner
provides details of Hilda's marriage to William Hill on 29 July 1907, paraphrasing a report from the Waterford Standard that the:
marriage between William Hill of Belmont Lodge, Waterford and Miss Hilda M Grubb, eldest daughter of Mr J H Grubb of Bruce Villa, Clonmel. The marriage was celebrated at 9 a.m. the previous Monday [29th July] at the Friends' Meeting House, Clonmel. After the wedding breakfast and reception Mr and Mrs William Hill left for Dublin and the Island of Achill, where they intended to spend some weeks.
also provided confirmation that this picture was taken at the Grubb's homestead at Bruce Villa in Clonmel.....
