The excellent Norfolk Transcriptions site from Andrew Rivett and Geoff Lowe seems to be down at the moment:

I can still access it at but some of the search doesn't seem to be working as well. Does anyone know what is happening to the site and if it will be back up?

Another resources is a (now public domain) multivolume series of transcribed parish registers for Norfolk. Here is, for example, several parishes' marriages -- Volume 7, Marriages. I can set up a space page listing and linking to all of them. Let me know if I have your blessing or if you are doing something different.
