Have you been to this website?

https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/advanced-search

This is the government repository for Scottish records. There are statutory registers for births, marriages and deaths for 1855 and beyond. You should be able to find the marriage record there and it will list the parents of your ggm and other information. It is free to search but unfortunately not free to obtain a copy of the register. But the fee is quite reasonable (I think works out to a few dollars USD).

Let us know if you need help finding the specific record.

You can also search there in the church records for your ggm's baptism. The search screen itself is quite helpful - it will provide the names of the parents. But it would be best to get a copy of the marriage register first, to confirm the names of the parents, since there may be numerous Catherine Delanys.
