Catholic Priest (officiant), wedding not in church

In search of a Catholic Priest who will conduct a wedding ceremony at our venue (not a church)? Any suggestions? Does this exist?

Re: Catholic Priest (officiant), wedding not in church

  • They cannot do this. The priest is acting as a witness for the Church, and the proper form for a Catholic to have a valid marriage is in the Catholic church. There are dispensations given by the bishop when there are certain circumstances for a Catholic to marry not in the church building, (and still be valid) but the priest wouldn't be the officiant.
