Last updated: 29th December 2020 (reviewed daily).

Since entering Tier 4, please be aware that Government advice for ceremonies is that they should only take place in exceptional circumstances, with a maximum of 6 people, including the couple themselves.  If you have booked a ceremony due to take place before the end of January 2021, and feel you have exceptional circumstances, please contact the office and your case will be referred to senior managers, who will decide whether or not your ceremony can go ahead under these restrictions.  We will reschedule affected ceremonies free of charge for you, but any applicable price increase will be charged.  At this time, we are unable to take new bookings for January 2021, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
