No, marriage usually took place in ONE church or a registry office. Say bride's family attended church A and the marriage took place there. After the wedding the couple would attended church B where the groom belonged. There are exceptions to this and of course sometimes the couple belonged to the same church before their marriage.

A townland is the smallest administrative unit of land in Ireland. In rural areas it served as the address until fairly recent times (we got road names in the 1970s).
