COVID-19 Guidance

COVID-19 Guidance for Small Weddings, Receptions and Celebrations

Guidance and regulations changed on 15th August and again on 11th September, when gatherings of more than 6 people from different households were banned from 14th September. However, weddings remain exempt from the tightened rules and gatherings of up to 30 are still allowed to go ahead. Here is the latest guidance we will be following.

COVID-19 Secure is a set of Governmant guidelines that apply to workplaces in general and wedding venues in particular. Here is and extract from the current Government guidance that outlines the key principles that apply to weddings

"For the purposes of a marriage ceremony or civil partnership formation, the number of attendees should ideally be kept to a minimum as far as possible. The lower the number of attendees, the lower the risk of spreading the virus.

However, we understand the unique significance that marriages and civil partnerships hold in people’s lives. For this reason, up to 30 people, but no more, can attend a marriage or civil partnership, where this can be safely accommodated with social distancing in a COVID-19 venue.

This maximum number includes all those at the ceremony, including the couple, witnesses, officiants and guests. It also includes any third-party suppliers, such as photographers or security, but does not include staff employed by the venue or any third party catering staff.

During all activity linked to the marriage ceremony or civil partnership formation, all parties should adhere to social distancing guidelines. 2 metres or 1 metre with risk mitigation (where 2 metres is not possible), are acceptable.

Those operating venues following COVID-19 secure guidelines should take additional steps to ensure the safety of the public and prevent large gatherings or mass events from taking place."
