Further Uncertainty for Weddings from 12 April 2021
We've just read the latest details from the UK Weddings Taskforce press release.
Sadly, it looks like many venues and couples are set for further disruption and disappointment as it transpires that the government guidance given has be inadequate and misleading.
In essence DCMS advice states:
- Weddings for up to 15 can only go ahead in step 1, provisionally set for 12 April 2021 at "places of worship, public buildings and outdoor settings that are already permitted to open"
- In person venue viewings can't happen until Step 3 (not before 17th May) in the majority of wedding venues.
For the majority of our venue partners and wedding groups this is not a problem as the majority are either outside venues or self-catering holiday accommodation which is on the list of venues that can re-open. However, 71% of wedding venues in the UK and a number of our own venue partners will be effected.
