Hi dathai
Wrote a reply earlier but site crashed & I lost it, so here I go again.
Mary Ellen would have been 17 in March 1918 but probably pushed her age up a fraction for the marriage.
The witness Kittey Devlin may be her aunt Mary Kate Devlin, from whom my wife's family descends.
Maybe this is evidence that Lilian = Mary Ellen.

Kittey Devlin is most likely Patrick's daughter Katie age 9 on 1911 census

Wouldn't she have been too young (16) to be a witness at a wedding?

A totally different era,a bride could be as young as 15 in those day's with parental consent so why not a witness and who's to say her age was questioned by the priest.

Why do you think a sister more likely than an aunt?

Because Catherine is more likely to be called Kitty.

however she appears to have married a Royal Marine by the name of Edward Moat 1921

I have a record of birth/baptism of Francis Devlin in May/June 1859. After the parents are listed two people Pat Quinn and Hannah Power. Would it be correct to assume these are witnesses to the birth registration or godparents at a baptism? Nothing at the top of the page to tell me.

No birth registrations until 1864 so it's a baptism so they are godparents/sponsors.
