Thanks for this info, I got that far BUT it only seems to offer Births and deaths and no mention of marriages? Am i missing something?

You need to select "Place an order" from menu on the right hand side of the page:  then select "Marriage" from the main menu.

Were you perhaps trying to order a PDF certificate, if so marriages are not included. You need to order a physical certificate, costing 9.25. ; https://www.gov.uk/order-copy-birth-death-marriage-certificate
