Coronavirus Advice

Update 22/10/20

The Prime Minister announced on Tuesday 22nd September a range of measures to curb the spread of Covid 19. Some of these will directly affect ceremonies. From Monday 28th September, the total number of people able to assemble reduce from 30 to 15 at both wedding or civil partnership ceremonies and receptions. This will include the couple and their witnesses, but not the registrars, photographer or other people working at the event. He also confirmed that it is very likely that there will be some kind of restrictions in place for the next 6 months.

We are continuing to call couples with booked ceremonies to confirm whether they wish to keep the same date or move their ceremony in light of the latest measures. This includes couples with previously postponed bookings and new bookings made since lockdown. If you have a booking with a licensed venue, do please discuss your plans with them, and we will be in touch as soon as we can to check what you would like to do.

We’re so sorry for anyone whose plans have been dashed by the reduced numbers. Please rest assured that if you choose to go ahead, your ceremony will still be a very special occasion and our team are working hard to ensure you can still say I Do.

Follow us on Facebook for regular updates and progress reports. 

We are still working on booking in new ceremonies and postponement requests. You can register interest in a new ceremony booking, or in postponing a ceremony booked for October 2020 onwards using this form: New Ceremony Booking Form.

We’ll be in touch as soon as we can – thanks for your patience.
