Rachel made her mark, so she may not have had sufficient reading skills to actually know what the clergyman was recording.  :) 

Picture the event .... the clergyman says 'sign here' ... to the groom, - so he signs 'here'  ... the clergyman does not say 'read everything first' ... so the groom doesn't check that the clergyman has the correct names for the bride.   The bride is asked to 'make your mark'  ... so she also does as she is told. And the witnesses stood and watched, and then signed that they witnessed the ceremony and the signing.   :)

Sometimes with NSW BDM online index searchings ... well ... it can be best to leave many of the options 'empty', and with an unusual spelling of a surname, it can be best to just enter one surname and a range of dates, or just one surname and then press the search option.

Sorry,  no, just NSW centric.  My earliest NSW arrivals date from mid 1790s,  and  I have living elderly rellies some who spent their careers in NSW Land Titles, NSW Archives, National Archives in Canberra,  clergy,  and are still very interested in local and in family history and who got me interested back when I  was at school ... so I have been a family history buff for..... decades ....  :)  ...

 If  you search RootsChat  you will find threads re GLUE in NSW and you could consider posting on those threads,  even if you doubt your GLUE ancestors would be connected,  perhaps they have come across your chap in their searchings...  :)
