Q: Is there anything interesting to do or see in the south of Beijing?

I feel there is always something interesting in places where not much expat go... south of temple of Heaven, you have the infamous coton market, muxiyuan, and one of my favorite ever! 
Going south from there, you can find nex to the south 4th ring road a market full of furnitures, including one shop selling amazing tibetan carpets and such. 
There is also a shop dedicated to bamboo items. It's not all good but it's fun. And a kitchenware market, ultra cheap.
As for visits, i've been to the Flower Exhibition Museum, displaying flowers from everywhere. Not much interesting but they do have an amazing selection of orchids.
Just go for it, select an area and explore, i believe it's the best way to find hidden treasures!

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
