There are churches that will hold a gay or lesbian wedding ceremony, but you do need to seek them out. Start by asking at gay friendly churches you know of in your area, or consult local gay marriage support groups. These groups should be able to point you in the direction of a suitable venue.
If you do not wish to have a church wedding, but still want to capture some of that formality, local halls are usually available for wedding ceremonies. Look at open temples or shrines in your local parks, and investigate for nice spots in public gardens.
When planning a gay wedding ceremony in a public venue, always remember that you will need to consult local authorities for permission to hold a wedding there and to find out if you need to book.
Otherwise, think about holding your wedding in a place that has significance for you and your partner. This is a way to begin your life together in remembering what your relationship means to both of you.
