Does the marriage for Bridget & Thomas (available on Scotlands people in 1880) give any details on their parents

Are there any records online that are free other than Scotland's People?

There are transcripts of census and some parish records on Ancestry, FindMyPast & Familysearch but Scotlands people is the main source of Scottish records

your stuck with  Scotlands people. useing my subscription elsewhere I can find no trace for the irish connection at first. I did find the Edinburgh family extending to at least 8 children born 7 from the 1901 census and one Ann b 1891 Newington from familysearch.org. I did find the spelling also included Connoly  I did find apart from the census,   James, as b~1883 was registered by familysearch as b 24 Jun 1881 St George Edinburgh. the other children were all registered Newington [South] Edinburgh. the 1901 census for Scotland did list staying withe family, Thomas layden b 1856 ireland brotherinlaw Blacksmith married
going backwards on Layden name, in 1911 census ireland , its distribution was only found in
Dublin
Leitrim
Mayo
Roscommon
Sligo
so Bridget Layden might have been b Ireland in one of 5 counties . I tried unsuccessfully  the free https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/ and https://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/
I cant help further, you will need every lead you can find eventually
Lots of luck

Layden might also be Leyden, etc.  ;)  The Scottish birth certificate should list date and place of parents' marriage.
