Weddings are making a gradual return, as the government takes the first step of its lockdown easing roadmap.

As from 29 March, wedding ceremonies with up to six people in attendance can now take place in England, without the need for exceptional circumstances. A small celebratory gathering can be held outside for no more than six people, or two households.

The next stage of easing will hopefully take place on 12 April, when up to 15 people will be allowed to attend. From that time, outdoor receptions can take place in the form of a sit-down meal, although evening celebrations will not be permitted.

Can we get married at Coltsford Mill under these restrictions?

Yes, absolutely! Unlike some wedding venues, we have taken the decision to honour as many bookings as possible, while strictly adhering to the government’s Covid-19 safety guidelines.

We’re proud to say that Coltsford Mill is the most beautiful outdoor wedding venue in Surrey. With our fabulous covered terrace – open on two sides, in line with Covid-Secure rules – and 12 acres of spectacular grounds, we can offer you the alfresco wedding celebration of your dreams.

You don’t have to worry about the weather either, because our patio heaters will keep the chills at bay!

What will be the rules for weddings from 17 May?

The government’s aim is to ease restrictions further from 17 May and permit receptions for up to 30 people, which can take place indoors during the daytime.

Our stunning Watermill Barn wedding venue has ample space to seat your guests while maintaining safe social distancing and hygiene standards.

No more than six individuals, or two households, will be seated together at each table, so your guests can relax and enjoy your wonderful day with confidence.

All remaining restrictions on wedding celebrations may be lifted on or after 21 June. We are keeping our fingers crossed!
