Hi

Was the marriage in Scotland or Ireland?

Ireland - A copy of the marriage cert would give some info (ie) his age at that time and at least his fathers name and occupation.  That would enable you to check the Scottish census records for him

Scotland - the marriage cert will give both his parents name and his mothers maiden name
