The original information I had was that the wedding took place in Chatteris, Cambridge, England, United Kingdom which was in the North Witchford Registration District, Cambridge from 1837 to 1889, but the marriage registration record states that it took place in the St. Ives Registration District, Huntingdonshire, England. It will probably need a copy of the marriage certificate to solve this.
