At that time in Poland people often only had a religious marriage. A civil one followed if they needed it for legal purposes, such as applying for a passport.  It is not unusual to find a marriage registration years after children were born. Seems like your g-g-parents moved to Scotland shortly after their religious marriage. The second date may therefore be the civil and thus the ‘official’ one for legal purposes.
