Good morning lovely people, I hope I find you well.
Well I’m sure you must have seen the new guidelines surrounding weddings during this “on pause” new reality.
Good news, from the 4th of July weddings can go ahead, bad news – possibly for some, they have to be small.
Here are they key elements drawn up by GOV.uk
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.
Ceremonies should be kept as short as possible.
No more than 30 people to attend – this 30 includes the officiant, photographer etc.
Follow the 2 metre rule.
No food or drink consumed as part of the ceremony
Its goes on to say that “small celebrations should only take place if they follow social distancing guidelines, such as groups of up to two households indoors, or up to six people from different households outdoors”
I know this still isn’t how you would have imagined your big day. But we’re getting there slowly but surly. And if you’re looking for inspiration have a nose at my mood board.
