And I suppose I would not be allowed to use the in-person same-day service for the spouse visa while here on the Marriage Visitor visa?
No.... the marriage visitor visa is for those leaving the UK after the marriage

Marriage Visitor Visa is only for people wants to get married in the UK and leave the country.
Fiance Visa is for people who wants to get married in the UK and stay (providing they apply for spouse visa extension).

You cannot have same day service for Fiance Visa Application.
Only if you have Fiance Visa and you want to apply for Spouse as a next stage - you can have priority same day service.

Right. Sorry for making you guys repeat yourselves - when I posted this thread originally I wasn't clear on what the 'fiancee' visa actually was and didn't realize that it was essentially the same as the spouse visa. It's all still very new!

I appreciate your patience.

The fiancée visa and marriage visitor visa are very similar. Both are six month multiple entry visas that permit you to enter the UK in order to marry and neither visa allow you to work. The only difference, other than the fee, is that the former allows you to lodge a spouse application to remain in the UK after you marry whereas the latter does not. The fiancée visa therefore requires you to meet the same financial and accommodation requirements as a spouse visa as there is no point in granting you a fiancée visa only to then refuse your subsequent application for a spouse visa.
