You would need to use Scotlands People to search for their marriage.  It is a pay per view website and images are downloadable up to 1937.  A basic search on their free index shows no matches under Pretty or Dunnett between 1917-1930

From the 1901 census - Christina was the daughter of Thomas Dunnett b 1874 Keiss Wick and Christina b 1875 Wick

She had siblings John Miller Dunnett b 1894 Caithness and David b 1899 Dunnet

Dunnet ED 4 Page 11 Line 20

I can't see a Scottish 1901 entry for Samuel and there were no families called Pretty in Scotland in 1901

The English 1901 has 2 possibilities - b 1896 Alderley Edge Cheshire - parents Samuel & Rose
or b 1900 Willesden Green Middlesex parents Henry & Ellen

Sight of their marriage cert will give you his parents names

www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

There are also others with earlier birthyears in the 1890's

If you are looking for children born to them - you can use freebmd to search for births surname Pretty - spouse/mother surname Dunnet

We cannot post those details for you as some of the children may still be living.  I can tell you that there are 4 births in Cheshire between 1922-1943

Samuel Pretty born 18.7.1895 died in 1986 in Macclesfield Cheshire

Christina Miller S Pretty born 5.7.1900 died 1980 in Macclesfield

I think the Samuel Pretty you are looking for is the one b Alderley Edge - parents Samuel & Rose
