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.

In England, only 15 people

Earlier this year, Curious City answered a question about where new COVID-19 cases were coming from in the Chicago area. At the time the answer was long-term care facilities, essential workers and possibly asymptomatic kids.

But this summer that equation has changed. Chicago and national health authorities have seen a sharp rise in COVID cases among younger people — and many of those cases have stemmed from social events, including weddings.

Chicago Health Commissioner Alison Arwady said “celebratory gatherings … have been the source of significant spread” in the city this summer. And she thinks part of it has to do with a false sense of security people can feel at events full of friends and family.

“It’s quite natural for people to feel that somehow because I love these people or know these people well that
