I cannot say with absolute certainty which church they were married at, the entry appears to say 'par church'; is this meant to be an abbreviation of 'parish church'? If so this would have been what is now Sheffield Cathedral
My research proved correct and I can now concentrate on going back another generation.
The father of William BELLAMY 1824-Deceased is recorded as George BELLAMY and I have a entry from the England and Wales Census 1841 showing a wife by the name of Sarah, though as yet I have not researched this any further.
Once again I hope these certificates will provide a few clues which may help in my research.
2007-10-18 It would appear that this time my research is incorrect. The Sheffield Register Office telephoned to say the marriage records show William Henry ASHFORTH 1851-1899 married Lucy Ellen LOCKWOOD and not Ellen PASLEY.
The Census of England and Wales 1841 returns an 11 year old Emma BRADSHAW living with her parents William BRADSHAW and Elizabeth BRADSHAW in the Walkley district of Sheffield. William and Elizabeth were both born circa 1801.
Though I am once again in the realms of conjecture, my research does have an air of authority that is worth pursuing.
William BELLAMY has proved a little more difficult. My research has revealed several BELLAMYs whom are worth researching further, though at this time I cannot even propose a convincing hypothesis.

I happened to be in Sheffield today so I took the opportunity to call at the register office to check if the certificates I had requested were ready for collection.
The staff had retrieved the birth certificate of Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased and the marriage certificate of Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased and Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased, but had not been able to locate a birth certificate for Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased. The Deputy Registrar very kindly showed the number of searches his staff had carried out without yielding a useful result. They had obviously spent some considerable time on these searches for which I am very grateful and once again I express my appreciation of the registry office staff.
