Hello Richard
I have only done research using the reporter in the 1960 decade and there were some marriages .
A few lines as you would normally find in the papers at the back . I suppose there may have been a more comprehensive write up if it had been someone of note .
I cannot comment on any of the other years .
You could E mail  the Manchester Local Studies library to ask but if you have a definite date of the marriage then it would only be a case of looking at one particular week . It came out each week .
If you live in Manchester then a visit may be worth while , the microfilms are very well organised .
www.manchester.gov.uk will give you the website and then the family history section .
Good luck
Eric

Hello Richard
If the marriage was in June 1908 then you would be right . If your enquiry relates to your post on the look up page and answered by Pauline then that marriage took place in the June quarter .
So unfortunately it could have been April , May or June . If you get the certificate and are happy that it is the right one then PM me and I don't mind having a look at a particular edition when I am next there .
Other than that you can e mail them on archiveslocalstudies [-- at --] manchester.gov.uk and ask if marriages were included in that year . I do not know as I have never looked that far back .
If you get a date for them then they might do the look up for you but I would'nt think they would do 3 months .
Hope you get a result .
Regards
Eric :)
