Certificates didn't come into being until 1837. You must have been looking at a parish record.

No there is nothing there to view in the Wiltshire marriages and baptisms on ancestry.

The details you would have seen was whether they were of the parish, bachelor/spinster, widow/widower...who performed the marriage and a couple of witnesses
