Marriage Document translation please

Post by PurrfectMeow » 29 Nov 2014, 23:05

I believe I have found the marriage document of my great great great grandparents here. Bartolo Cannistra and Giuseppa Ritano (sp?).

Can someone please translate the jist of it for me? Cannot make out parents names and occupations at all except that looks like Bartolo's father was named Mario.
