Fylde is in a Tier 2 Local COVID alert level: high
Wedding ceremonies and receptions are still permitted to go ahead
At present, it is strongly advised that marriage or civil partnership ceremonies or formations undertaken undertaken in accordance with applicable marriage and civil partnership law should only go ahead where they can be done in a COVID-19 secure environment. Such gatherings cannot by law take place in private dwellings. 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.
From 28 September no more than 15 people can legally attend a marriage or civil partnership, even 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. Anyone working is not included as part of the legal limit.
From 28 September, receptions and other celebrations for weddings and civil partnerships can continue to take place, but only in the form of a sit down meal in a COVID-19 secure venue. No more than 15 people may attend. Such receptions must 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.
