one cannot work in China as a "freelancer". Your working visa to work he legally will be tied to your employer who gets you the visa.

First step to successful freelancing: Don't substitute numbers for words. From the "Freelancing in China Handbook by B.S. Atcha (2007, Larper/Jollins, Chapter 3, pg 7):"

 

"Remember, Chinese culture is 5,000 years old, and hence, adheres greatly to established rules of grammar and sentence structure, frowning on the abbreviation or "textualization" of the written language. In order to show respect for established etiquette, all freelancers in China should become familiar with normative word spellings and traditional phraseology."

You can't even if you register yourself as a legal business entity. That is because to renew your work permit, you will need to employ a Chinese person and have at least two months worth of workers insurance receipts. So technically, unless you work illegally on the wrong type of visa, you can't do it.

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
