Covid Wedding Rules – Can weddings go ahead in 2021?

Coronavirus UK Weddings 2021

The United Kingdom has outlined its plans to vaccinate the entire at-risk population of Great Britain by April. Therefore, the summer of 2021 is looking like the ideal time to hire a wedding saxophonist or planner for your dream day. The past year has been an incredibly challenging time for everyone, but with 2 million people being vaccinated every week there is definitely a light at the end of the tunnel.  71% of couples cancelled their weddings last year, therefore 2021 is the perfect year to tie the knot.

 Covid Wedding Rules

Due to new proposed legislation, couples in England and Wales could be allowed to marry outdoors or in the comfort of their own homes. Currently, the law only allows for couples to marry inside a place or within a licensed venue. The Law Commission of England and Wales want couples to be able to marry in beaches, parks, private gardens, cruise ships and more.

When Will Weddings Be Allowed?

Boris Johnson announced recently that it is his “belief” that due to the vaccine programme that weddings should be able to happen “in the normal way”.

“If you’re thinking about the summer, I think you’ll be alright… it is my strong hope and belief that by the summer, one way or the other, whether delivered by vaccination (which I hope will be delivered by Easter) or by lateral flow testing, it will be a different world.” – Boris Johnson

The summer of 2021 is looking promising for brides and grooms in the U.K!
