trying to find a marriage

I am trying to find a marriage between John Parish(Parrish) and Grace

They married somewhere between 1881 and 1891

He was born in somerset and she was born in and so was Grace so hoping they may have married in Somerset as well

I have look on family search and free bdm and can not find them unless I have just missed them

I can't see an obvious marriage for them, and they don't appear to have had any children - so I'll dig a little deeper to see how many Graces were born in the same place and follow them forward.

The only marriage I can see for John is in 1884 to Amelia Tilley at Widcombe. John is recorded as a Grocer and his father Robert is a Bootmaker (deceased) which appears to fit.

So either the John who was married to Grace was a different John Parish, or Grace was Amelia's middle name or preferred name....

her birth appears to have been registered as just Amelia (mother's maiden name: Snellgrove) Bath Registration District June quarter 1861, so I suspect the middle name Grace was added later.
Yes, I have just found that one

Amelia was 23, father Frederick John a mason

John was 21 and a grocer, father Robert a boot maker (Somerset Heritage centre D\P\Wid 217.

I think it is right because

England and Wales Probate Calendar

Parrish Amelia Grace of Armion Lodge , The Avenue, Combe Down, Bath (wife of John Parrish) dief 19 Aug 1939 prob Bristol 11 Oct. to the said John Parrish effects £2715 7s 2d.

(Oops too slow typing on a phone)
Thank you to both of you

I should have noticed that Tilley was her maiden name as she was living at one point with her brother silly me
