If your big day has fallen victim to the latest lockdown, don’t despair – with a little flexibility, your wedding can still go ahead in 2021.
The news that England was heading into a third national lockdown was incredibly disappointing for those planning to marry this winter. Although the Covid-19 vaccination programme is a really encouraging development, postponing your wedding is still a sad decision for any couple to make.
Can we get married during lockdown?
Except for certain special circumstances, no. Wedding ceremonies cannot take place in England until the lockdown restrictions are eased.
What should we do if our wedding can’t go ahead?
Communication has been the most important factor throughout the coronavirus pandemic, so don’t stop talking now. If your wedding has to be postponed, our advice is to stay in touch with your venue and suppliers so you can keep talking as the situation evolves.
As a hugely popular wedding venue in the beautiful Surrey countryside, we understand that postponing your marriage celebration is frustrating and stressful. People often book our stunning barn wedding venue years in advance, so rest assured that if you plan to marry at Coltsford Mill, your big day is just as special to us as it is to you.
That’s why we make it our priority to always communicate clearly and regularly with our couples, as well as responding promptly to any questions or concerns.
For couples who have been forced to postpone their wedding due to the lockdown, it may be wise to wait a while rather than booking a new date immediately. Because the situation is so changeable, our advice is to be patient and see how the next few weeks pan out.
But keep planning and getting all your ducks in a row. Then, when the time is right, your dream wedding day will be ready to go!
At Coltsford Mill, we’re with you every step of the way.
