If you're asking about the Laurinson marriage, at the top of the page, the occupation of the father William Laurinson is Pensioner, which may indicate that he was an ex-soldier with an army pension.

The witnesses may be Thomas Bate and Mary Jane Jeffreys (made her mark).

If you mean entry #89:
I agree with Millipede: Labourer and Gallery (or possibly Gallary).

First Gallery/Gallary is William, the second I thought was James, but it looks more like "her mark" between the words (I can't see a dot over the word and the ending is different from the "his" above), so not sure what it could be.
