so, he was already MASON at that marriage
Who does he say his father is on the cert?

I have not sighted the cert myself (I am going to order myself a copy once I can figure out the exact marriage date for the cert request.)

Others have linked him to another William Wright, images below.

tree on Ancestry has 2 daughters to George and Ada with MASON in brackets, as if registered births as BRANSON.

Branson   Irene M   Female            Boulder   48   1913
Branson   Ina M   Female            Boulder   179   1914

So - never married?

My most complete family tree I have access to says Irene (Mary) and Ina are the children of George Mason and Ada Branson. The rest of the "Mason" children that Ada had came from the "James Mason" marriage.

Are you getting all this information from other folk’s online trees?

Do you not just apply using the reference number and year?

The only information I am pulling from other peoples trees is the "George Mason" link. I pulled that info as it might help with my current task of finding out about James Gregory Mason.

The rest of the information (William Wright / James Gregory Mason) comes from the death / cemetary notice.

I have not sighted the cert myself (I am going to order myself a copy once I can figure out the exact marriage date for the cert request.)

Do you not just apply using the reference number and year?

Not from what I can see here;

(I don't want to send an incomplete form in and get it rejected)

Apologies for all the dodgy information I might have, I am quite young (18) and new to all of this research and requesting certificates.

Western Australia's death certs are usually full of information.  I see his is indexed in the name of William WRIGHT ... aged 78, parents as William and Emma,  #83, of 1969.  Swan District.

You do not need the date of marriage.

If you search for the marriage here
https://bdm.justice.wa.gov.au/_apps/pioneersindex/default.aspx

and when you locate it on the index press order to the right, it will open in a new window with the details required entered in the form.  Print it and you need to fill out your details.  It is known as an historical certificate.  I have ordered many from WA and never had a problem.

Do your own research and only use online trees for info but CHECK it.  People are slack and accept the so called little green leaf hints.
