Wedding ceremonies - latest guidance

25 June 2020 Last updated at 12:56

The Government announcement on 22 June provided for the reintroduction of weddings and civil partnerships subject to restrictions.  The information can be found in full here.

In summary it says:

1.17 Can weddings go ahead?

Yes, from 4 July, weddings and civil partnerships will be allowed to take place. You should only invite close friends and family, up to a maximum of 30 people. The wedding exception is for wedding ceremonies only. Large wedding receptions or parties should of course not be taking place. Wedding celebrations can only happen when people follow the guidance of six people outdoors, support bubbles, or two households indoors or outdoors. It is critical for these guidelines to be observed to keep you and your family and friends as safe as possible.

We are all excited and  looking forward to the reintroduction of ceremonies but are awaiting further guidance.  We will be in touch with all of our couples who have ceremonies booked with us on or after 4 July 2020 as soon as we have received government guidance.
