As the Christmas holiday approaches, there are some who want to hold onto the idea of being married, and others who want their own special way of celebrating.
While some couples are looking for a way to marry, some prefer to keep it simple.
In the latest Marriage Survey, 22 per cent of those who answered said they wanted to be married as a traditional Christian ceremony, while 21 per cent said they preferred to be a wedding party.
While the majority of those surveyed said they’d like to get married at a church, the majority preferred a church wedding venue or a church-run wedding.
However, some people are still looking for their own wedding.
Christine, the bride from the upcoming wedding, has been married before to a man from a different faith.
Christina, the groom from the future wedding, was married to a Hindu wedding couple who both lived in Australia.

“There was a big difference between the ceremony at the church and at the venue.”
She’s still going through the ceremony and wants to see it in the church, where she says she feels more at home.
“She also wants to attend a church marriage celebration, but said the wedding is a special event.”
The wedding will always be special for me,” she told the ABC.”
I love it when I see people come together to celebrate the love and commitment that we have for each other.
“We’re not a traditional wedding and it’s a beautiful thing, but it’s very different to other ceremonies.”
She says her own wedding proposal has already changed her outlook on marriage.
