If one of the partners has lived legally in Spain for at least two years then the civil marriage can be done in the local town hall followed by a religious ceremony in church or other location.
Please check with the local town hall for their requirements.
If neither of the partners fulfil the residence requirements then the civil marriage will take place in their country of origin followed by a ceremony in church, at a hotel, on a beach or any other chosen location.
For UK citizens this usually means the civil marriage taking place in the local registry office followed by the religious ceremony here. It’s probably worth contacting one of the clergy as early as possible to discuss your plans.
