    There is no official mosque marriage in Turkey. You can only have it like a ceremony if you arrange it, but it won't have any official value.

    No you cant ...Turkiye is a laique country there for marriages are organized under the direction of Municipalities and not in Mosques ..After the formel marriage in the municipality you can invite an İmam to your house ( not necessarily but if you insist for a religious touch ) for a religious marriage

    Can you speak Turkish? You may also have some communication problems with the individuals during the ceremony. You can marry in the mosque, but it is not formal marriage according to Turkish laws. Rather than going to the mosque, you can also invite the Imam in to your house as well
