I think it could be described as "marriage by proxy". If one of the
marriage partners is unable to attend the civil marriage ceremony, a
"stand-in" can represent him/her before the registrar, and the
marriage can go ahead without that partner. This happened for instance
when the woman is pregnant, and the man in military service overseas.
