Thank you for contacting me about wedding venue businesses.
I appreciate that this has been a difficult time for businesses in the events and wedding sectors. Likewise, I understand the disappointment of couples eager to tie the knot who have had to postpone or cancel their weddings due to the outbreak.
Now that restrictions have been eased, I am pleased that more and more businesses are reopening, and livelihoods are beginning to be restored. Wedding venue managers will have discretion over when they consider it safe to open in line with Covid-19 secure guidelines, and the officiant should also be content that it is safe to proceed. If a wedding venue does not feel it can be made safe and Covid-19 Secure, it should remain closed.
