Is there a census close to the marriage which might indicate his or her trade?

Thanks again all for the replies. It is listed as the father of the groom's occupation. He actually dies 9 years before the wedding takes place and 1 year before the 1871 census. He is listed as an agricultural labourer in 1841 and 51 and just labourer in 1861. I have checked other certificates I have and found one which clearly says labourer but has this version of a capital of L. It's done by the same hand as this certificate. It seems the more obvious L is the inconsistent one. Thanks all for your help.
