Christine, there is no consolidated index to marriages before 1837, and
there will be no formal marriage certificate, since civil registration began
only on 1 July 1837.
If you do not find the marriage entered on the IGI or other partial indexes
such as Pallot's and Boyd's, it is a matter of reading through films of
parish registers. You can order these into your local LDS Family History
Centre for a modest cost. You can check the LDS library holdings at
www.familysearch.org. The search may be a long one, but you may strike
lucky. Be aware though that a marriage record before 1837 will not normally
provide parents' names.
Isaac NOE and Elizabeth may not have married in the area where their son was
born or where they subsequently lived. Additionally, the 1841 census shows
that Elizabeth was born outside Middlesex, which may also have some bearing.
But you have to start somewhere, and probably the nearest churches open for
marriages in the 1790s would be St Leonard Shoreditch and St Matthew Bethnal
Green, both extracted to the IGI for the relevant period. Given the surname,
you might want to look at films of other nearby parishes where there was a
known French/Huguenot population, such as Christ Church Spitalfields or St
Mary Whitechapel (neither extracted to the IGI).
