The Common Room / Same marriage twice??

I would be interested in your views as to why a couple would have married twice with a couple of months.
11th July 1830 in St Mary's Southwark, and then 27th September 1830 in St Mary's Lambeth.  Definitely the same couple (James Renwick and Hannah Bassett Scott) with different ministers and different witnesses. I have come across a baptism twice before but not a marriage. Anybody understand why this may have been done?

Thank you all, very much for the time you took to do this.  It must be a fiddly process when a picture is so marked as this one. YOur efforts are greatly appreciated.

Alos the view of it being 1880s.  That is far more realistic; I guess I went earlier just because of the actual glass plate photo being such an old looking item itself. 
I have a photo taken in 1916 of a wedding of one of their granddaughters and in it is an older couple who I think is these two but I can't be sure.  Are there experts on facial recognition here too? I''l try to attach their faces for an opinion anyway. 

I have finally had my glass plate photo digitalised and wondered if someone wouldn't mind having a go at getting rid of the crack down it and blemishes if that is possible.
Also I would like to have a view on what people think the date is.  I am pretty sure it is my Great Great Grandparents Henry and Elizabeth Hopkins who were born 1848 and 1846 respectively!! so I'm guessing probably 1870s but couldn't pin it down any further so any more educated guesses would be great thanks...

Thanks for all the replies again.
Yes, that may be a thing about it being a copy....I can see the writing saying it is certified a true copy of and then dated 1942, but it could be one from another time maybe. 
Lots to be done, thank you all.

THanks everyone, its all been a great help.
Will check on the war evacuation thing, and work on the assumption it must be registered, and so I need to check that one birth I found.
Cheers you're all great.

Are there no other clues at all, eg the name of the registrar?

I'm afraid not just the section showing Father's name, mothers name and half the section next to it. The place above is obscured, but the certification saying it is registered in July 1942 is visible.

An adoption doesn't remove the original birth entry from the records, it is just noted as adopted in the margin and a new record is created in the Adopted Children Register with the adoptive parents names on it.

You need to order a copy of the entry you have to learn any more....if there was a legal adoption, it will say so (although it won't give any clue as to the new name of the child).

OK thank you. I didn't realise that it would say it that that child has been adopted. I understand about the not putting new name etc on.  That's all interesting thank you.
