Summertime weddings

Whether you’ve just got engaged, or are looking for a date for a wedding you had to postpone, now is the time to make plans.

The covid pandemic led to the postponement of thousands of weddings in the UK in 2020 and the early part of this year, but things are now looking up. It’s time to have your wedding, your way!

Wedding planning season is now in full swing, and our celebrants are ready to help make your dream wedding become a reality.

If you had a private register office wedding during lockdown, or a ceremony that was shared online and attended remotely, you might like the idea of a ‘re-wedding’ or renewal of vows. You can celebrate with loved ones at a symbolic humanist ceremony to bring people together to hear you declare your vows to one another.

How many people can attend our wedding?

From 21 June in England, the number of people allowed to attend a wedding will be dependent upon the size of the venue. The venue manager or event organiser must conduct a risk assessment to determine the number of attendees.

You could also consider inviting your guests to take a free, instant lateral flow test ahead of the wedding. These are highly accurate and deliver results in under 30 minutes. They can give you and your guests that added bit of confidence, on top of the guidelines, that you’re doing all you can to keep people safe.
