Any receptions that typically follow or accompany marriages or civil partnerships are strongly advised not to take place at this time.

We recently published guidance preparing for small marriage ceremonies and civil partnership formations to take place from 4 July, which can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-for-small-marriages-and-civil-partnerships/covid-19-guidance-for-small-marriages-and-civil-partnerships.

The Government is working with the wedding and civil partnership celebration industry on how receptions that typically follow or accompany marriages and civil partnerships could take place safely in the future.
