    Default priest?

    Hey,

    Does a "priest" do the marriage ceremony or is it a "bishop" or a "minister"?
    Any other answer is accepted.

    thanks,

    In England and Wales, any licensed celebrant can conduct a marriage ceremony.

    The title of the person who conducts the marriage will depend on which religion he/she/the couple are (or non-religious of course).

    What's the title in Christianity?

    In the so called "non-conformist" Christian churches, Methodist, Baptist etcetera, it's "Minister".

    Catholics have priests. Other Christians denominations use the title "minister."

    A bishop is the leader of the church in a given area. Priests answer to the bishop. A bishop could do a marriage ceremony, but that is unlikely.

    bishop, vicar, priest, deacon, minister, pastor, reverend . . .

    Yes, it depends upon the denomination.

    For sure it will be a "church official" who will perform the ceremony.
