Marriage additional information
« on: Wednesday 13 March 19 10:20 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone read what this says? I think I can see Warrant of on first line and Institute in second line. The groom was in the navy if this helps?

Thanks in advance.

Another version of image, I cropped it slightly too harshly the first time.

The marriage was in Aberdeen, I think it says Aberdeen as the first word on the third line.

Thank you very much Kaz, just researched the term, it seems to mean they had an irregular marriage which was not through a church minister. I wonder why!

I wonder, given the year 1915, was he going off to war so quickly married before going and a church marriage would take too long?

That seems likely.
Was this William Bugden who was in the navy? (William Bugden and wife are subjects of other threads.) He may have had only a few days leave at short notice.
How did WW1 affect contemporary marriage law in England and Scotland?

Yes William Bugden in the navy, his Naval record shows him on the HMS Vulcan from Jan 15 through to 16 and this ship was based in a flotilla in Scotland. The couple are both on the marriage register at the same address in Aberdeen, not sure if that just means he was staying with her while on leave?

Was it a private house or a hotel/boarding-house? It may have been home of a relative of the bride. Are her parents named on marriage certificate? What was her father's occupation?
