As you are also having problems finding a Marriage record on a Parish Register (see: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=778599.0;topicseen) the conclusion has to be that the family were non-conformist?

Note that some non-conformist religious denominations don't practice infant baptisms.

Maybe your course of action would be to buy that Marriage Certificate, just to see in what place thay got married?
