Hannah Wain & a Swiss marriage in 1917

While researching (for a contact) a Hannah WAIN who went to Brazil in the 1920s, obtained certificate for a marriage between Hannah WAIN and John STANLEY in 1917. This turns out to be a different Hannah Wain (wrong age, wrong father), but I am posting the details here and the Stanley GenForum in case it is of interest to anyone. If anyone can throw any light on the unusual circumstances described I would be interested to hear.

15 June 1917
John STANLEY - 31 - bachelor - P.O. Clerk at present interned Prisoner of War - res. Hotel Beau Séjour, Château d'Oex - son of William Stanley, deceased

Hannah WAIN - 22 - spinster - weaver - res Château d'Oex - daughter of James Wain, workman

married at Town Hall, Lausanne according to Swiss law by O Ducret, Officier de l'état civil, before Alfred Galland, British Consul. The witnesses were John Shepheard and Bessie Meents.

The Hannah WAIN that I am looking for was born in Sheffield in December 1890 and is believed to gone to Brazil in the 1920s accompanying someone who was setting up a steel company in Brazil. She is believed to have married this man before she left, but no trace has been found of that marriage.
