(Better you compare, Islamic Nikah is in brief below.)

Marriage (nikah) is considered as an act of worship (ibadah). It is virtuous to conduct it in a Mosque keeping the ceremony simple. The marriage ceremony is a social as well as a religious activity. Islam advocates simplicity in ceremonies and celebrations.

Prophet Muhammad (S) considered simple weddings the best weddings:

'The best wedding is that upon which the least trouble and expense is bestowed". (Mishkat)

Nikah:-
Nikah, or nikkah, (Arabic: النكاح ‎), is the contract between a bride and bridegroom and part of an Islamic marriage, a strong covenant (mithaqun Ghalithun) as expressed in Qur'an 4:21.
A Mahram is a close relative who is not allowed to marry other relatives

Marriage:-
Marriage is a social, religious, spiritual, emotional and/or legal union of individuals that creates kinship.

The literal meaning is same for the two words but the procedure of the ceremony is different in both religions. Vivah is right term in hinduism and Nikah right term in Islam. Marriage is a generic word in english. We all the details of specifics followed in each type, so I'm not going over them here.

Marriage is a word of English used for arabic word nikaah.Practically there must be no difference.The rituals in Islamic marriage, called nikaah, are different from the marriages of other religions.And so also we have different words for marriages in different religions and languages.
