The latest lockdown began to ease from March 8. Children returned to their classrooms, and people could meet up with one other person for outdoor recreation. One regular visitor was also permitted for care home residents.
That was followed by further loosening on March 29, and the most recent change was on April 12 when non-essential shops reopened. Hospitality venues could serve food and drinks outdoors, and self-contained accommodation could be used. Other services such as hairdressing and libraries resumed, and attractions like zoos and theme parks could also operate once more. Crucially, weddings and receptions have been allowed to have 15 guests as of this date.
The next pertinent date is May 17, when most restrictions on outdoor meetings are hoped to be lifted and two households or six individuals may be able to meet indoors. As many as 30 people may be able to attend weddings from this point.
What happens on June 21 will depend on the results of the Events Research Programme currently taking place. Depending on how this pans out, the government may lift all limits on weddings – as well as other social contact and events – from this summer.
Here at Matthew Rycraft Photography, we are as keen as you to know if your wedding is likely to go ahead. Every Liverpool wedding photographer will be keeping a close eye on developments over the coming weeks.
