Try this link to see a good explanation on marriages in the 'old days'
As far as I know from 1837 onwards, all mariage records were held for one in the actual church itsself, and secondly a transcription was made for the GRO, and by the time you were allowed to marry in a non-comformist church this regulation took grip.
So you should be able to get at both records, if those of the church still exist. The only exception was for the jewish and the quakers, but even they had to register the marriage.
