Ideas For Your London Wedding

On this day, 16 years ago, Charles, Prince of Wales, married Camilla Parker Bowles. Cheers to them! And with tight restrictions on weddings been slightly eased as part of England’s lockdown exit plans, you might finally start to think about your wedding. 

Marriages can now take place, with six people (including the couple) attending. From 12 April (at the earliest): Up to 15 people will be allowed to attend a wedding ceremony and reception, but ceremonies can only occur in places of worship, public buildings and in locations that are already permitted to open, with outdoor receptions only.

From 17 May (at the earliest), up to 30 people will be allowed at the ceremony and reception. On 21 June (at the earliest), the government aims to remove all limits on social contact, including wedding restrictions.
