we stupidly had a photocopy of our certified copy of the marriage certificate. They asked us to courier the original, we only have the certified copy with embossed stamp from the county clerk. This will suffice (certified copy is listed as acceptable on the website under required documents for UK us embassy required documents) - right?

Yes. No one ever gets the true original certificate as that stays at whatever government office stores documents in your country. By original they mean the actual document you get from the clerk, not a photocopy. What you have should suffice.

well, we were issued an original which had the judge's signature who officiated our marriage. that piece of paper is at my parent's home in Texas (my husband and i are in the UK). i do have here with me however the certified copy. so, it's possible (if they can find the original) that i can manage it, but if i can't, the certified copy from the county will do?
