I have a Marriage Record from 1845, which names groom John Perkins and his Father Philip Perkins.- fishmonger.
However Philip died in 1837 , did they still include father's name and occupation even after death? or have i got a marriage record that is so close in all avenues but not the correct person?

were fathers always named /occupation even after death on their children's marriages?

The father's name and occupation should be in the relevant columns, irrespective of whether he was alive or dead at the time of the marriage. Sometimes the words "deceased" or "dead" are added, but this was not obligatory.
