Register Office Marriages.

Under what circumstances in the mid 1800's, would dictate a register office marriage.
I have ordered a number of marriage certs in the past, but have just recieved my 1st one conducted in the Register Office.

The Groom is a widower and the bride is a spinster. I would not have though a 'widower' being a reason.

Any thoughts.?
