Give a few arguements as to why marriage ceremonies should only take place in places of worship.
Believers will value it being in God’s house. It should be made before God, involving him and seeking his help from the start. Solemn vows made before God are more likely to be taken seriously. Tradition is important.

Give some arguements as to why wedding ceremonies shouldn't always be in a place of worship.
Not everyone is religious; marry in a place that is special to you. No-one wants people pretending in the vows. God is everywhere (omnipresent), not just in a church or a mosque. Some can’t marry in a church eg. Divorcees, gays (Catholic/Anglican).
