Thomas being only given as 19 in 1860 is problematic(unless the Registrar transposed their ages!) Perhaps it is necessary to look for a third couple!

Curiouser and curiouser..
There is an 1860 burial record for Ruth Griffiths,aged 60 of The Square,Bistre,wife of the late John Griffiths,sexton(i think that's what it says).

Without exception, on the census between 1861 and 1901, Thomas is older than Anne which surely suggests the ages are the wrong way round on the Marriage Cert....but where does that leave me?

I think the evidence on balance is in favour of Thomas being the son of John and Mary,but I can't find anything at the moment that provides incontrovertible  proof.I suspect the Hannah Hughes,witness,is Hannah Philips(registered as "Anna" to William and Harriet in 1836) who married a Joseph Hughes( a "horse shoer") in 1st quarter 1860.

Thank you, Roger. I had hoped that Hannah was on the Williams side.  :'( I hadn't found the Joseph Hughes marriage.
I will keep looking but I certainly haven't got your skills at turning up evidence.
I really appreciate the time you have taken to do this. :)
