“Gypsy Wedding”

I received this picture today, sold as a “Gypsy Wedding” but with no date. The photographer’s studio was Napier Studio with an address of 163 Longmarket, Pietermaritzburg (Maritzburg) dating from 1908 but I haven’t been able to discover how long they were in operation. On closer inspection I have my doubts as to whether the bride is in fact a female, but still an interesting picture and the wedding dress is probably from the early 1900’s.
