Found a little more
48. ST. ANNE, Duddeston (Cato St.), a red brick building designed by J. G. Dunn in the Gothic style and consisting of chancel, nave, aisles and bellcot, was consecrated in 1869. (fn. 12) Three of the four bells, dated 1650, 1638 and 1740, were brought from St. Mary's, Moseley, in 1874. (fn. 13) In 1869 a parish was assigned out of St. Matthew's, Duddeston, the living, which became a vicarage in 1874, being in the gift of the bishop. (fn. 14) The church was closed in 1951, and the benefice was united with that of St. Matthew, Duddeston. (fn. 15) A mission room in Great Francis Street was licensed for public worship from 1908 to 1926. (fn. 16)

Have a wedding certificate for 1898 on which the church looks like St Etwens
I have tried to look for this church (Google) as it is the first time I have seen it, but no joy.

St Agathas, Sparkbrook was built in 1901. Later than the wedding took place. I have looked for St Edwin, there isn't one. Nothing like St Etwens in Duddeston, there is St Oswald in Bordesley, built in 1897, and St Edward in Hockley built 1896.

These are all the Duddeston churches

St Ann built 1870
St Laurence built 1868
St Matthew built 1840

Have you tried looking on Family Search, if you are lucky it might give you the name.
