Can you make sense of this wedding certificate?

When I first looked at it, I though that it had started to be completed and then 'scribbled' out.

On looking closer, something was written over it.

You have to stand back a bit - and it says "Cancelled"

Ok, so I see it now.

Under what circumstances would such a record be cancelled?

Most likely the minister or clerk had been preparing the entry in the marriage register in readiness for the marriage - but it never took place, hence cancelled.

Indeed - for any reason - the parties changed their minds, one got sick....
