I see that the marriage was in Wrexham district, Dec qtr 1855.

Have you looked for her in the censuses before that?

I can find her on the 1851 Wales census age 15 but she is a house servant and not listed with parents

Yes, have seen that entry in Leeswood which looks a likely match, her birthplace given on this occasion as Tryddyn.  Also in service in the same household are other Edwards who may provide a clue (one or both possibly siblings?):

Sarah Edwards, 26 b Tryddyn
George Edwards, 13 b Mold
Ayr: Barnes, Wylie
Caithness: MacGregor
Essex: Eldred (Pebmarsh)
Gloucs: Timbrell (Winchcomb)
Hants: Stares (Wickham)
Lincs: Maw, Jackson (Epworth, Belton)
London: Pierce
Suffolk: Markham (Framlingham)
Surrey: Gosling (Richmond)
Wilts: Matthews, Tarrant (Calne, Preshute)
Worcs: Milward (Redditch)
Yorks: Beaumont, Crook, Moore, Styring (Huddersfield); Middleton (Church Fenton); Exley, Gelder (High Hoyland); Barnes, Birchinall (Sheffield); Kenyon, Wood (Cumberworth/Denby Dale)

She died in 1916 age 81 according to Find A grave so would have only been 5 on the 1841 census and not 15.

Unfortunately Leeswood, Mold, Nerquis and Tryddyn are all known to be wholly or partly missing from the surviving 1841 census.
