Let’s look at the Advantages and disadvantages:
O.K. Here we go! On the one hand, there’s Pro; In Favor:
The first point in support of registry office weddings is going to be their ease of organisation.
A 2nd point in favor could well be that they can be arranged for a very quick wedding with very little waiting around.
A 3rd favorable point is that they are the cheapest type of wedding you can have.

Lastly, the 5th point is you only need a minimum of two witnesses in all jurisdictions which we know of.
And on the other side, for balance, the Con side, against:
The 1st point in contra for registry office weddings is going to be that many people want a religious based wedding, and all registry office weddings are secular and contain no religious content within the ceremony.
The second point in contra will be the text of the ceremony is a stand text and can usually only be varied very slightly to accord with the wishes of the couple
3rd point against will be that other weddings will be taking place soon after your wedding so scope for waiting for a late arrival of participants is extremely limited.
Your fourth point against is a registry office wedding will not suit anyone wanting to have an elaborate wedding. In fact, a registry office wedding room will have a quite limited number of seats and not all your guests may be able to get into the ceremony if the number is large.
5th and then finally, last point in contra will be a registry office wedding will never match the requirements of a couple that wish to celebrate this as the best day of their lives, with an extravagant wedding.
