Groom's Occupation?

Married 11 Oct 1863 James Park

I know what I think it says, but am second guessing myself as I had enough trouble deciphering the groom's occupation on the previous entry (took me ages to see Commercial Traveller!)

these people not on my tree so only need opinions on this part of the entry but as the images are available I'm adding them as postems on FreeBMD.
Have to say I am starting to dislike the Vicar as his writing is dreadful and he does tend to split words onto two lines :-)

It looks like 'Cutting out'.

Thanks, I thought so too. 'Perhaps' it ties in with his Dad being a bootmaker - maybe he cut out the leather ?
I'll go with that I think.

1 more image to do and I'll reach my daily target of the available images of a year - this was billed as 'another filming' and another seems to translate to we messed this one up and only filmed the left hand side pages :-)
I'm sure the locked images version will have both sides of the book - or I hope so anyway!

Following this through the censuses, his father John Park was a boot and shoe maker in the 1851 census, but a tanner and currier in the 1861 and 1871. In 1861 James was a currier - so perhaps the 'cutting out' might have been something to do with that?

My first thought with cutting out, was leather - so it seems to fit with him being a bootmaker.

Thanks JenB and manuarik

It does all fit with leather work and I've transcribed it as Cutting Out.

The idea of putting postems in is to help others decide if it may be the marriage they are looking for.
Certs are expensive enough without buying them for unrelated people who happened to have the same names.
Still a transcription- helpful but, though I try to be as accurate as I can, there's always a margin for error.
