It can be very easy (in Las Vegas you just need ID), or very difficult (in France you have to live there for 40 days before you can legally marry),

How do you make sure that the marriage is legal in the UK too?
Just remember that generally if the marriage is legal in the country in which you get married then it is legal in the UK.
One extra tip for you – if you have a wedding abroad in a non-English speaking country then you will have to get your wedding certificate translated when you get home in order to use it.
