Well … After much confusion over whether June 21 would really be ‘freedom day’, Boris finally gave clarification on upcoming weddings. The government has announced that while other restrictions will remain in place, weddings with more than 30 guests will be able to go ahead in England from 21st June.

However, there are still some restrictions in place, so here is a really simple guide to what you can and can’t do from June 21…

What you CAN do

  • You’ll be allowed unlimited attendees at wedding ceremonies and receptions – but the attendees must be accommodated in a COVID-secure way, so it’s worth checking that with your venue
  • Musical entertainment is allowed: with a group of up to six performers allowed inside, and up to 30 performers allowed outdoors
  • First dance
  • Speeches – but the Government advises they take place outside or in a well-ventilated area
  • Cutting the cake
  • Guestbooks and camera stations are allowed, as long as you have sanitisation stations

What you CAN’T do

  • Indoor dancing
  • Stand up drinks receptions at outdoor or indoor wedding venues

What the Government advise against:

  • Dancing outdoors
  • Communal singing, including hymns
  • Reusable service booklets and devotional materials in churches and ceremonies, and sharing orders of service
  • Cash donations

What’s obligatory

Facemasks indoors during wedding ceremonies and receptions – but you can take the off when eating and drinking
Table service for food and drink
No more than six guests per table
Risk assessments are mandatory for all wedding venues

Your wedding or civil partnership is one of the most memorable events of your life and it should be celebrated in style!

Many couples can spend up to 12 months planning the big day and so we thought we’d help out a little when it comes to the hiring of the band.

Live bands for weddings have become an essential part of the celebrations and add a fantastic focal point to any party and steel bands in particular bring a unique uplifting element unlike many other options.

Not everyone has experience of how to book a steel band and the things to look out for and check. So, we at Steelasophical thought we’d provide a basic set of questions that you MUST ask before booking any style of band for your wedding day.
