  • My friend's husband is a preacher... he married us. He asked us beforehand if we believed this or that so he'd know what to include in the ceremony.

    There's always the JP, though.

  • You can have a marriage ceremony anywhere you want. you don't have to have a religion to get married. There is no rule that says you must get married in a church. You could get married on a beach with the mayor or a judge performing the ceremonies. The possibilities are endless.

  • You can get married anywhere you want, by just about anyone you want. They have online certification to be an ordained minister. People do it all the time to marry friends, family, whomever.

  • You can get married without having a religious ceremony... the justice of the peace is always an option! And many ministers will offer a 'non-denominational' service... dh and I had that done, it was outdoors and we met with the minster beforehand to make sure we were comfortable with what was said.
