Two weddings on the same day

Can anyone explain why a couple would get married in two different places, forty miles apart, on the same day?

Fmp has the Banns and marriage (with images) of Francis King and Mary Hastings on 8th December 1792 in River, Kent. It also has a transcription for the same couple, same date, in Rodmersham Kent.

I cannot find anything to link the couple to either place as I can't find a birth/baptism anywhere for Mary although I have a probable baptism for Francis in Dover.

Why the two marriages?

Thanks,

Emeltee
