COVID19

 

Here at Weddings at Fylde we have been working hard behind the scenes to re-open our doors to all of the excited couples who are ready to tie the knot, whilst also following the rules and guidelines from the government during the current global pandemic.

The safety of the bridal party, guests, registrars and our staff is our highest priority along with ensuring that your day is a special event.

Ceremonies will re-commence from the 1st of September 2020

At present, legally valid ceremonies or formations are strongly advised to go ahead only where they can be done in a COVID-19 secure environment. It is also advised that the ceremonies are kept as short as reasonably possible and limited as far as reasonably possible to the parts of the ceremonies that are required in order for the marriage or civil partnership to be legally binding.

No more than 30 people should attend a marriage or civil partnership, where this can be safely accommodated with social distancing in a COVID-19 secure venue. This is the maximum number for all attendees at the event, including the couple and guests. It also includes 2 Registrars and any third-party suppliers, such as photographers or security, but does not include staff employed by the venue or any third party catering staff.

This guidance supersedes previous guidance. 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.
