Place of the marriage ceremony
You and your intended spouse are free to choose the place where your marriage will be solemnized, such as:
- a church in the city where you grew up, or that is architecturally attractive;
- a courthouse;
- a reception room in a hotel;
- a park or garden.
However, you must ensure that the place:
- is suitable for a solemn ceremony;
- has a suitable layout;
- is covered by your celebrant’s authorization to solemnize marriages.
