Duplicate register entry with different surname

Found a marriage that I'm sure is the one I want - but the register page lists it twice. Leonard R marries Gillian A (Surname), then again marries Gillian A (Surname 2) both on same page.

I'm sure I've seen this situation before, but this isn't a transcript error - wife's surnames are totally different.

I'm doing this for a very distant relative by marriage who I don't know well, so I don't want to ask if they know anything about it until I'm sure what's going on!

I haven't looked at the children yet, apart from the one making the query with me. Seems an odd way to list if the bride has two previous names - she can only be married under her current legal name. But this was the seventies - so who knows what was happening!

Thanks for that suggestion.
