Since she is already in UK on Tier 1 and has more than 6 months leave remaining, she will be able to switch as your partner. you have to apply for a COA to get married in UK. I believe she can continue to work while her application is in process and does not have to leave her job.

How come your payslips don't have any tax deductions details? You must surely be getting P60s from your employer. Do you have those? Did you carry them with you to the PEO? If yes, you could have submitted them and that might have done the job. Correct me if I am wrong but I guess you entered UK on ...

You will be covered by the JR during your second extension as well. Just use the FLR(HSMP) form to apply.

At the end of the day it's still left to the discretion of the case worker whether or not to grant you ILR if you have crossed the maximum number of days of absence.

You should be OK as long as you can prove that you were paid in the UK and this was an official trip initiated by your employer. A letter from them will help as well.
