How to create the wedding of your dreams during the CoronaVirus restrictions

During this unprecedented time, many couples are having to rethink their wedding plans. Churches are allowing very few guests, register offices are restricting couples to only themselves and two witnesses and venues are closed.

It sounds like a nightmare.... but it could be the perfect time to think about creating a completely bespoke ceremony that's personal to you.



Your wedding or civil partnership day should be a day to remember, to cherish for years to come. It is important to make it Your day, not conforming to the expectations of others. Your wedding ceremony does not have to be in a church or in a licensed venue with a registrar.


If you want to be legally married, the paperwork does have to be done at the register office (but check out your local office, often a Monday morning is less expensive). Once that is done, the ceremony itself can take place wherever you want and can include whatever you want!


An outdoor wedding ceremony could take place in a wood, on top of a hill or even in your own garden. Social distancing would be easier (and could even become a part of the fun!) and we could set up a weblink to stream it to those who are unable to attend.



Even if you prefer to wait until restrictions have lifted, consider the option of working with a celebrant to create a completely unique ceremony. Whether indoors or outdoors, you can choose bespoke elements such as Ring warming, Handfasting and Unity ceremonies to make your wedding celebration a day to remember!
