Hello, I found a marriage record on this site of a John Collis marrying a Mary Lillian Gannon in 1915. Would the location of the marriage have been near Mangaweka? Would the bride's father been John Gannon?

There is a record of a John Gannon marrying a Margaret Maher in 1889 in the Victoria-Australia records. I am wondering if this could be my grandfather, John Gannon, born in 1869 in Hokitika, NZ, then moved to Melbourne in 1889 and worked as a tailor. He married, had a daughter, became widowed, then returned to NZ in 1903 before emigrating to Ireland and marrying my grandmother. From NZ census records, I deducted his daughter's name was Mary Lillian May Gannon. I would appreciate any information! Thanks
