I just happened by chance on this via Papers Past, it looks like another Cambridge airman!

AIR FORCE "WEDDING
The wedding of Miss Nessa Eady, only daughter of Mr and Mrs Lewis A. Eady, 29 St. Stephen's Avenue, Parnell, to Corporal Edward Phillip Wood, R.N.Z.A.F., younger son of Mrs Wood, of Cambridge, and the late Mr Charles Wood, of Tonga, took place on Saturday afternoon at the Congregational Church, Beresford Street.
The Rev. Clifford Welch officiated and Mr W. Wilson was organist. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a gown of ivory taffeta-backed satin, cut with a V neck, draped bodice, low waistline, full slightly trained skirt, and three-quarter length sleeves. She wore an heirloom veil of French lace hold in place by white roses and carried a sheaf of the same flowers. The matron-of-honour, Mrs Lewis Eady, junior, and the bridesmaid, Miss Joy'Walton, wore white dimity frocks sprigged with blue, over white satin, made with fitting bodice, full skirt and slight bustle effect. On their hair they wore blue velvet bows and delphinium posies and their sheafs were also of dolghiniums. The best man was Mr A. Haughton-Giles, of Parnell, formerly R.N.Z.A.F., and Leading-Aircraftman W. Gardiner, R.N.Z.A.F., acted as groomsman.
Does anyone here have any info On Cpl Edward Phillip Wood, please?
Or how about A. Haughton-Giles or LAC W. Gardiner? Maybe they were all in the same trade?
