It would most likely be in Llangollen as Pontfadog was part of that parish until 1848.

If you looked at the record on FindMyPast, it's been wrongly indexed as Pontfadog.

In fact many of the marriages that did take place in Llangollen parish have been wrongly indexed in this way. You have to look at the heading on the pages.  The same has happened with some of the  Wrexham records being indexed as Brymbo.

Hi Brian

I'm a bit confused as you had a thread about them last year and even put up their bond:
