Anyone know if a Catholic priest will do a wedding outside?

Hi, my friend wants to get married outside, and her family wants her to have a church wedding.  Hoping for a happy medium we are looking for a priest that would do a Catholic ceremony outdoors.  Does anyone know of any priests that will do this?  I've heard it can be done, but is difficult to do.
Thanks!

Re: Anyone know if a Catholic priest will do a wedding outside?

  • The only priests that do this are either retired, or from splinter sects. If you find one of these priests, it will not be a 'valid' wedding in the eyes of the Catholic Church. It will be a legal marriage, and perhaps the appearance of a Catholic wedding will be enough to satisfy the family. But if the Church recognizing this marriage is a requirement, then nope, no outside Catholic wedding.
