Perhaps that’s how it was popularly known?

The parish website refers to ‘St Nicks’ https://livpc.co.uk/index.html

Thank you for solving my problem.

Incidentally, I had looked at Parish Clerks but there was no result (to my enquiry anyway)???

Catholics often married at the two main C of E churches in the city, St Nicholas, located at the Pier Head (still there) and St Peter's, located in Church Street (now demolished) and the practice was eventually discouraged by the RC church in the 20th Century. Confusingly there was an RC St Nicholas (now demolished it was in Copperas Hill) and RC St Peter's, in Seel Street (now Alma de Cuba Restaurant & Bar).

I don't know if this was common practice in other places or unique to Liverpool but researchers of Liverpool families with catholic ancestors often find C of E marriages of couples who were both catholic followed by RC baptisms and this was during the time RC marriages were legal. My great grandparents married at St Nicholas C of E in 1899. He was baptised at St Mary's RC, she was baptised at St Augustine's RC and their children were all baptised at St Augustine's RC.
