tried Google for you but no luck

may I suggest you look up one in Beijing as there are lots of info on them with phone numbers and they may be able to put you on to one in Xian

I know it's the long way round but it might be the best way in the long run

Good luck to you

The second link has pictures of last year's ceremony at 天教堂 (Tian JiaoTang)陕西省西安市莲湖区五星街, which looks like a pretty big deal, and a nice church.

Tu Mem Christian Church, unfortunately nI could not find the address, Maybe a taxi driver could take you there if he knew.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
