I'm guessing you have the information printed in Hallett's compiled info from old newspapers - Bermuda Index page 203
1836, Jan. 19: Major Gen. Sir Stephen Remnant CHAPMAN, Governor of Bermuda, married Caroline PYKE, youngest daughter of the lagte Rev. George PYKE of Baythorn Park, Essex, and Vicar of Wickhambrook, Suffolk, on Nov. 9 at Boyton, Wiltshire (from London paper).
1893, Aug. 8: General Sir Frederick Edward CHAPMAN, aged 77, has died. His military life began in 1835 in the royal Engineers: he became colonel in 1855, Major General in 1867, and also at that time was appointed Governor of Bermuda. His appointment as General came in 1877.

That is all I see in my small library.
I suggest you try to find the newspapers listed above as they may give a more detailed discription of the marriage and name the parents of the groom.
sorry I could not be of more help.
