Baptism records

Looking for opinions on this puzzle.

Thomas WILMOTT & Mary BUTLER marry on 26 Mar 1769. There is a baptism at the same church for a Giles WILMOTT on 28 Feb 1770 son of Thomas & Mary. No age on the record.

There is a marriage at the same church for a Giles WILLMOTT on 25 Aug 1782. No age on the record.

Giles didn't marry at age 12 so what are the possibilities and the probabilities?

1. There are two Giles but one was not baptised or the record of the 2nd one is missing.

2. Giles was at least 6 years old when baptised. Then why no age on the record and why didn't he marry using his mother's name if therefore born before his parents married?

3. ?
