What about going totally out of the box and choosing a neutral location, like a garden, art gallery, restaurant, etc? Sounds like you both have the right attitude in regards to what matters to both of you, I think there’s definitely a compromise that will work. 

We’re personally getting married in a totally untraditional venue – an architectural artifacts retail shop – but we are both atheists, so no church was an easy decision!

I like lilyfaith’s suggestion of a neutral venue! That way no one feels like they aren’t getting what they want, and you’re both compromising on the venue.

Oh, is this a British thing, where you can only get married in either the registry office or a church? (sometimes I watch Dr. Who with the Fiance.) Americans can generally get married anywhere, it’s the officiant that makes it legal, not the place. We talked about the church as well (FI is Catholic; I am agnostic), but ultimately decided on getting married outside.

Goodness, I didn’t know it was that difficult in England! I guess I take it for granted here that as long as the officiant is approved, the location is up to the couple. 

Hm, yeah, speaking as a Chicago native (our weather is notoriously cold, rainy, windy, and unpredictable in the fall as well. and, well, all year round.) outside may not be best. 

I guess I’m no help but my Future Father-In-Law looooves Dr. Who! They just got expanded television channels, and he has BBC so he can watch it all the time now.
