It was traditional to marry in the wife’s church. Since Annie married in the Church of Ireland that’s where I’d look for parish records. If you know that Annie was born in Ballymena, I’d search the Ballymena COI parish records for her birth and that of any siblings. Those records start in 1789 (with gaps) and have been copied to PRONI, Belfast. The parish is Kirkinriola.
