    if you dont feel comfortable, you can always get married somewhere else, like the beach or park, but adults can get baptised too.

    depends on the church u want to get married in in some cases u may have to pay for the use of the building and if u don't have a person that is going to do the wedding they may ask if u want to use the pastor or reverend of that building. depending on what kind of church u attend every domination is different but they will christen u no matter your age. but there maybe those u will just bless you or baptize you depending on your age.

    Yes you still can get married in a church and i feel that you can get baptized or christened as and adult... Talk to your parishoner or pastor or priest about this. They may be able to help you here.

    As others said, generally both parties need to be baptized. Adults can absolutely be baptized - in some communities, only adults are baptized.

    As a note, you cannot be baptized twice - once its been done, by any christian denomination, you can convert to another denomination, but they will not re-baptize you.

    You will have to talk to the church you're planning to get married in. Usually, to get married in a certain religion, you have to be a part of this religion (i.e., be baptised into it). Yes, you can get baptised as an adult.

    If by 'church' you are referring to the Catholic religion the answer to your first question is, NO! You must be baptized, confessed, confirmed and receive holy communion. Yes, you can be baptized any time.

    Of course. For an adult it is called baptism.
