Registry office wedding 1902

I wonder if someone can help me please?
My aunt has finally found the marriage certificate of my gt grandparents.
They were married at Isleworth Parish Church., Middlesex (Brentford) on Christmas Day 1902.
My gt Grandfather was a sailor and the witnesses were a Frank William ? (cant read surname but not familiar) and the brides youngest sister who would have been in her late teens. Does this look like a secret wedding? Was it usual for a church to hold a wedding on Christmas Day or did they have special arrangements for sailors? It also seems unusual to have a young sister as a witness?
