HELP. German marriage/family information. Family name: Rockhaus

Surnames: Rockhaus
To whom it may concern:

I am looking to obtain a marriage certificate/any assisting information from Germany.

Information is below:
Name: Georg August Oscar Rockhaus
Date of Marriage: Between 1879 - 1898 (I've stated this as he would be 18 in 1879 and I have international shipping records starting 1898).
Wife: Unknown
Children: Unknown
Married in Church: Specifically unknown but highly likely in Berlin.
Stated on 2nd marriage certificate (1907): "Widower"

Additional information which may assist:
Birth: 31st October 1861
Baptism: 10th November 1861
Church of Baptism: Charite Kirche, Berlin Statd
Mother: Auguste Marie Rockhaus (nee Rockhaus)
Father: Carl Rockhaus (not registered on birth certificate but outlined on New Zealand marriage certificate. Carl's profession: Bootmaker).
Discharged from Shipping: 1902
Some ships that he worked on as a firefighter between 1898 - 1902: Loch Lommond & Mercator, Viola, Odessa.
Profession in New Zealand: Bootmaker.

I have not been able to attain information on the first marriage from New Zealand held records and am having trouble with German based genealogists and record companies. I have also searched Berlin resident records and German specific ancestry sites with no luck.

Please advise accordingly if you can assist. Any information, eg a list of appropriate Standesamt's to search today, any records with the "Rockhaus" name in Berlin around this time would be highly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Paislee.
