Easy Does It.

Some positive news from Boris Johnson earlier this week as he announced that limits on numbers attending weddings in England, will change from 21st June 2021.
Instead of the limit of 30  people, the numbers will now depend on the maximum capacity a wedding and ceremony venue can safely hold with social distancing measures in place.  It will also apply to a wedding in a private home or on private land. Good news which will be welcomed by tens of thousands of couples getting married in England. 
This change will mean that couples may be able to extend their guest list but some restrictions will remain for the time being.
There are separate guidance notes for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 
For full details of the latest changes to weddings and how these may impact on you, and your wedding, go here for the latest government briefing.
