As Londoner has said - I have been a little busy in recent times helping fight fires including three deployments to various parts of New South Wales.
Berkshire is a little out of my line but even checking Ancestry Family Trees and FamilySearch there is not too much to help. The Ancestry Trees do offer some information but nothing concrete other than both that I looked at claim Martha was 'Martha Searle Merriman' at the time of her marriage.
I think your best bet would be to make some enquiries at the Berkshire Record Office (link below) and find out what they might charge for copies of original records. They may even transcribe some of the particular records at a discounted price but having the originals is better.
They do hold the registers you would need so ask about both the marriages you have mentioned and try to get copies if you can. For those years there was provision to include the name of the father for both bride and groom along with his occupation. You should also get Martha's marital state at both marriages and other details that might help you correctly identify her.
