* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has one where the MauveShirt couple was promoted to nobility, on the basis of not being backstabbing scumbags like the entire rest of the nobility. They, unusually, went with the bride's name - the groom's name is being kept as a [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy last line of defense]].

* In ''PiratesOfDarkWater'', a [[MadScientist mad alchemist]] fell in love with Ren (because [[ReplacementGoldfish he reminded her of his father Primus]]), and asked the BigBad to marry them in exchange for turning over Ren's {{Macguffin}}s. He indulged her, although as he confided to Ren, "[[DeathThreat I wouldn't expect much of a honeymoon...]]"

* A variation is presented in ''[[{{Temeraire}} Empire of Ivory]]'' where the ''captain'' of a refugee-packed dragon transport is being married [[spoiler: to the captain of one of the dragons on board]]. Given that they were [[ShotgunWedding in a bit of a rush]] the ship's chaplain is deemed the only one legally fit to do so.

* In an episode of ''GilligansIsland'', the Howells learn via a radio report that the minister who married them was never ordained and thus, they believed themselves to be unmarried. They tried to rectify this by having the Skipper marry them on a raft, but after bickering for awhile, they call the wedding off. They soon learn that the radio report was in error and had named the wrong minister. (The irony here is that, according to the law, even if their minister ''was'' a fake, the Howells themselves would still have remained legally married, since they had believed him to be genuine at the time. See [[http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a2_450a.html this Straight Dope entry for more details on the subject.]] But then [[RuleOfFunny it's ''Gilligan's Island'']].)
* Lampshaded on ''TheLoveBoat'', when Captain Steubing performs a mass wedding on (IIRC) the Valentine's Day cruise to Mexico. He specifically says that the Mexican government granted him special permission for the occasion.

* Marcy's wedding to her second husband in ''MarriedWithChildren''. She made the mistake of allowing Al Bundy to make all the arrangements and soon found him cutting corners to save (and pocket) money. Among the things he did was forgo a minister and hire the captain of a garbage scow to perform the marriage via CB radio.

* Played with on ''HappyDays''. Fonzie and Jenny Piccolo attend a Halloween party held aboard a ship dressed as a bride and groom. The captain of the ship is dressed as a priest, so they decide to have a pretend wedding. Hilarity ensues when the marriage is initially declared legal and binding, but is resolved later.

* Mork of ''MorkAndMindy'' is asked by a pair of teenage friends to perform their secret wedding, justified by the fact that, as Mork rationalized it, he came on a ship, he was the only person on that ship, so he must have been the captain.
