Fears people may be ‘factoring in Covid fines’ as a wedding cost as illegal gatherings continue to rise

People may be ‘factoring in Covid fines’ as a wedding cost with Greater Manchester Police breaking up several marriage celebrations, the deputy mayor fears.

Baroness Beverley Hughes says weddings ‘increasingly feature’ in the list of police call-outs to illegal gatherings, which is rising by the week.

Last month GMP handed out fines after around 100 people were found at a wedding party in Bolton, while another party was stopped in Manchester.

According to the latest government guidance, weddings and civil partnership ceremonies are limited to 15 people in both Bolton and Manchester provided that the venue is Covid-secure and social distancing requirements are met.

GMP continues to respond to reports of parties and funerals, with some funerals so large that they have required their own police operations.

This has added to ongoing resource issues within the force, which is spending up to £100,000 on special operations every weekend.

Indian-Origin Couple’s Drive-In Wedding To Bypass Covid Guest Limit Rule In UK

Under the UK guidelines, only 15 people are allowed to be part of wedding ceremonies.

London:

 An Indian-origin couple, keen not to delay their wedding plans despite a strict restriction on the number of guests allowed to assemble under England’s coronavirus lockdown rules, are celebrating this week after pulling off a first-of-its-kind drive-in wedding near London.

Londoners Roma Popat and Vinal Patel were originally due to get married on April 20 but when lockdown disrupted their plans, they discussed the concept of a drive-in wedding with their wedding coordinator, Saheli Events, almost as a tongue-in-cheek thought rather than a serious plan.

However, what began as a joke became a reality last Friday, when the couple were married in front of a small gathering of their immediate family with the ceremony being projected onto a big screen in a field next door to friends and family seated in more than 100

A Burton wedding planner says she is distraught as customers keep having to postpone their big days due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Louise Hughes has been working as a wedding planner for 14 years after setting up Lush Occasions, which is based at the Centrum 100 business park in the town, and says she is very anxious about what the future will hold for businesses like hers.

Since the lockdown was announced in March she has only completed work for one wedding, with some of her customers postponing their weddings three times now due to restrictions during the pandemic.

The 50-year-old, who lives in Stretton, said: “The coronavirus pandemic has had a massive impact on the wedding planning industry and it’s been very tough to keep going.

“For me, personally I have had to give a lot of my customers their deposits back and others have postponed into next year

When the coronavirus pandemic took hold in March, couples preparing for their big day had to abruptly stop planning.

Lockdown was eased in June and wedding ceremonies could take place again – but they were subject to strict conditions.

With cases of Covid-19 rising again, there have been further changes across the UK to the rules for weddings, civil partnerships and receptions.

Here’s a guide to Northern Ireland’s rules.

How many people can attend my ceremony?

In Northern Ireland, unlike the rest of the UK, there is no fixed limit.

Guidance from the Executive Office states that indoor and outdoor ceremonies are allowed, and numbers are based on venue size and risk assessments.

This includes places of worship, local government offices, hotels and other venues licensed for ceremonies.

No additional guests should be invited for an evening reception, add the guidelines.

In England, only 15 people

Commitment in the time of COVID: Couple wed in a parking lot

Carrie Grace McQuaid and John Michael Simpson exchanged vows on Sunday afternoon missing some of the trappings of a traditional wedding.

The bride didn’t get a dance with her dad, nor the groom with his mother. There was no dinner banquet for 250 guests. Some loved ones had to watch via Zoom.

The whole affair took place in a parking lot.

And yet, it was the perfect start for a couple’s matrimonial adventure: proof that, even in a pandemic, love finds a way.

“Super cute. Very Carrie,” guest Judy Strickland said at the end of the ceremony, which she and most of the others in attendance watched through their windshields. “If anybody could do this, Carrie is the one who could make it happen.”
