Small wedding receptions in the UK can now go ahead effective from the 15th of August 2020. Gov.uk published a COVID-19: Guidance for wedding and civil partnership receptions and celebrations, which outlines guidance on activities such as dancing, speeches, throwing of the bouquet/confetti, use of guestbooks, and more. The guideline published on Gov.uk states;
From 15 August 2020 receptions and other celebrations for weddings and civil partnerships can take place, but only in a COVID-19 secure venue.
Such events should not take place in people’s private homes (or adjoining outdoor spaces like gardens), given that these will not have the same COVID-19 Secure measures in place.
Capacity at a wedding or civil partnership reception or celebration (including the couple, guests, and third-party suppliers, but not venue staff or third-party catering staff) should be no more than 30 and safely accommodated with social distancing in a COVID-19 secure venue.
We will reassess guidance in relation to larger wedding receptions in line with the development of the scientific advice.
