As we can say:

He got married into a prosperous family.

Can I say:

He got married in / to London(spouse's city).


He got married around / about London. {When the exact place is unknown.}

Please explain.

You can't say "He got married into a prosperous family". It would have to be "He married into a prosperous family" (although this might just be a difference between American English and British English).

You can say "He got married in London." (because that is the place). "He got married to London" would mean he married someone called "London".

"He got married around London." is just wrong. You could say near if the marriage location was outside, but not far from London. You could say in or near if you know it was not far from London and possibly in London.
