I am pretty sure I found a match in Genlias and since it was super easy to find you are probably not familiar with the dutch genealogical database:

It is a pretty good national database but it isn't complete, if you are having difficulty finding something be sure to check "what is in genlias" to see if the records are available.

to get you started from genlias:

Source Civil register - Marriage
Archive location Zeeuws Archief
General Number of finding aid: 25.40
Municipality: Groede
Type of record: Huwelijksakte
Record number: 10
Registration date: 02-06-1847
Groom Adriaan Bouwens
Age: 30
Place of birth: Nieuwvliet
Bride Abigail Klaijzen
Age: 30
Place of birth: Aardenburg
Father groom Adriaan Bouwens
Mother groom Francina Smoor
Father bride Izak Klaijzen
Mother bride Tannetje van Overbeke

I checked your online tree, I noticed you entered the married name for Abigail, that's a bit of a genealogical nono. Only enter maiden names, best to leave things blank if you don't know, but now you do. :)

There is a wealth more out there many sites have scans available of the original records. We'll be glad to help with the translation.

For scans of the civil registry (1811-1950) be sure to check out:

They are not indexed, so it is usually easier to find the record in genlias to get the exact date and then search for the original record.
