- 29th March: Up to 6 people present but no longer limited to ‘exceptional circumstances’.
- 12th April: *Up to 15 people present
- 17th May: *Up to 30 people present
- 21st June: *No legal limit on number of people present if the government’s four conditions of lockdown easing have been met. Rules on social distancing and face coverings may still be in force after this date.
*If you have booked an Enhanced Ceremony in one of the Register Office rooms at St George’s Hall the number of people must include a maximum of 13 guests plus the couple, two Registrars and a photographer due to the size of the rooms and social distancing requirements. This information is for guidance only and may change at any time. See GOV.UK for more information on the roadmap to remove national restrictions.
