It’s worth noting that getting legally married in France is only possible through a civil ceremony, which is required to take place in a mairie (town hall). Many British couples choose to get legally married in England before travelling to France for the romantic celebration with friends and family. This has also been the case for same-sex couples since same-sex marriage was legalised in France in 2013.
