I am sure that marriage by certificate or license was more expensive than banns, just less 'publicity'

Perhaps one of them had a jilted or awkward former sweetheart and didn't want them turning up. Or an annoying/overbearing relative.

A Marriage Licence is  more expensive, especially Special Licence but not by Certificate. By  Certificate is standard in nonconformist Churches where Banns are not part of the procedure. I was married by Certificate in a Congregational Church.
