Can you confirm your fiance is here on a 6 months visitor's visa please.
Usually a person here on a visa requires a Certificate of Approval from the UKBA in order to marry in the UK. If he comes on a visitor's visa and then applies for this then the UKBA will not like it and certainly take their time. There would also be an issue in that they may take the view that he has deceived them in obtaining a visitor's visa since this is only for the purposes of visiting.
The easiest way forward would be for him to apply for a fiance visa from Egypt so that he can come here and marry you. He would then have to apply for a spouses visa thereafter.
He will also have to pass and english language test showing he has a basic command of spoken and listening English. He can find out approved test providers in his area by contacting the UK embassy nearest to him.
You will need to apply for fiance visa using form VAF4 which is available for download from the UKBA website. A solicitor could prepare an application for you for around £800-1, 000.00
ALternatively, were he to come here on a visitor's visa then you can marry in an Anglican church without a certificate of approval provided you both have your passports. Once you are married he will still have to return home and apply for a spouses visa.
