I have not seen a wedding here. Only been to Sunday mass. I imagine you could talk to the priest there and ask. If I wanted a lovely church wedding in Spain I'd pick a church like this one.

Not sure but we have been there during the week and it appears to close for a few hours in the afternoon from about 1pm. Sorry don't know in detail.
