The limit on numbers will be gradually lifted in stages from March to June.
6 guests permitted from 29th March 15 guests permitted from 12th April 30 guests permitted from 17th May No restrictions from 21st June
Whilst the roadmap provides a positive outlook for the return of weddings these dates are provisional . Before progressing into the next stage, the Government will assess the data. All stages are contingent on five weeks of positive changes & meeting of the Governments 4 tests. So what are the 4 tests?
