Thank you. I’ve been using a more complicated template...which I found somewhere on Wikitree ... but couldn’t find again today ..
If you need useful pages for England take a look at

Some of this also applies to Wales but Scotland has different ways of doing things as does Northern Ireland.
Thank you! I found this page again today but can’t find the page which has suggestions/examples for formatting UK specific sources  (eg UKGRO certified copies , death PDFs etc) was there... somewhere...

I would suggest that you describe the content of the record such as 

The marriage by (banns)/(licence) between X & Y was conducted  (date) at (place of marriage). Add the source as Certified copy of Marriage Entry. Add the GRO marriage details as secondary source.

Thanks. I do something similar for Parish Records which clearly show if the marriage was by banns or license but I don’t think the Certified copies of entries of marriage show if the marriage was by Banns or license? The original marriage certificate I have does  of course.
