You probably mean "Jew" or "Jewish". If the question is whether Jews can attend non-Jewish weddings, The answer is it is Halachicly permitted (though it would be frowned upon due to אל ישמח ישראל בגיל העמים -type behavior, so don't do it unless you have a real need), unless the wedding is held in a Church or there is Pritzus. If the question was whether non-Jews can attend Jewish weddings, the answer is also yes.

If the wedding of 2 non-Jews is not held in a Church, and there is no Pritzus;

but the officiating person is, for example, a minister or priest, who mentions Yoshka and the father, son, and holy spirit, during the wedding ceremony;

is a Jew still allowed to attend the ceremony?

He should not be there during the ceremony. We are adjured to stay far away from Meenus. More, even, than we need to stay away from Pritus.
