It looks like the OPR marriage register for Duffus parish, which includes Burghead, has only three entries for the period 1800 to Nov 1821.  If John and Jessie married at that period, this is probably the reason why you are finding no marriage record. (See https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Duffus,_Moray,_Scotland#Condition_of_Original_Registers.E2.80.94)

Did you get the information on their family from a census?
