Looking for a marriage

I am looking for a marriage of Nellie Clements and Mr Barker between 1911-1933

Nellie Clements, born in Rutland in 1889, moved to Nottinghamshire where she is in 1901, 1911, she is working in Bulwell in 1911, then nothing until she gets married in 1933 in Glasgow Scotland and is a widow of a Mr Barker.

Just did a search on Scotlands People, but there are no results on the statutory marriages for Nellie and Mr Barker.

Thanks Amanda

I couldn't find one on SP either, nor on marriage indexes in England/Wales, she is an elusive lady
Was she born Smith/Clements ,so 2 surnames for a marriage perhaps.
Have you searched Scotlandspeople for a death ,using her now married name. It should have both husbands on it.2 1990 PATERSON JOHN MCFARLANE M 78 GLASGOW, MARTHA ST GLASGOW CITY/LANARK 603/00 0038 No Image

Nellie was baptised Clements and her birth cert is also Clements, her father was born/baptised Smith and later added his mothers maiden name of Clements, however none of his children were baptised with the name Smith.

I have the marriage cert of her marriage to John Paterson which is where I found she was a widow and previously married to a Mr Barker.

I knew her when I was a child, she died in 1972 in Nottinghamshire and is buried in the family grave yard ( John is buried there too in 1959, so I never knew him)

On the 1911 census she is 21yrs old single and living/working for a family in Bullwell Nottinghamshire, then in 1933 she is marrying John Paterson in Glasgow aged 41yrs and a widow ( as he was as well)
So her first marriage was between 1911 and 1933, no idea where.

I have John Paterson up to the 1901, can't find him or his parents/siblings on the Scottish 1911 on marriage( 30 May 1933) he was living in Shore Cottage Portencross Ayreshire

The only maybe marriage I can find
Nellie Cleminson 4Q 1919 Tynemouth 10b 650/56 Harry B Barker but it is difficult without census and the surname is different and with lots of Nellie Cleminson's on the birth index, so I don't think it is her
