This all depends on which nation you want to recognize the marriage.

In Sweden, you have whatever ceremony you want, on a ship or a private ceremony in a canoe. However, the actual official recognition comes when you file it at the tax office with two witnesses. Everything else is just fluff, from a legal perspective.

Churches (of various religions) are able to do it as well, but I think they've finally are about to remove that power from them, iirc mainly due to their resistance to same sex marriages.
