Mine was more of a logistical challenge than a romantic day - we live in Southern France, but I'm from Exeter and my wife is from Northern France, neither of us have family nearby, and we had to find hôtels and accomodation for those unable (don't ask) to sort it out themselves, then shuttle people around and ensure everyone knew where to be and when. We aren't religious so had the civil ceremony in the village Mayors office, then we all went to a good restaurant for reception/dinner/alcohol.
It was a lovely day, but largely because our plans were sound. In the end we were relieved when it was over. I had to go back to work overseas a week later and we still haven't had a honeymoon...! Astonishingly, she still loves me, though the increasing number of bikes in the garage is probably straining that a bit...
