Wedding Limitations Could Stay In Place Throughout June, Boris Says

Boris Johnson has back-pedalled on his plans to update the public on rules regarding social distancing - and it may impact summer weddings.

The Prime Minister previously promised that all social distancing would end by 21st June, with limitations on events such as weddings being lifted.

Many hopeful brides-to-be had then planned their weddings beyond that date, thinking they should be able to tie the knot with all their nearest and dearest around.

Johnson was expected to update businesses, such as wedding venues, within 28 days of June 21st - thought to be around May 24th.

However, an official spokesperson for No.10 has now said the Prime Minister can no longer promise a review of social distancing rules will report back by May 31, due to the spread of a new variant of coronavirus.

The new variant, which first emerged in India, is thought to be highly contagious - and has prompted fears of the lockdown roadmap being knocked off course.

The news may also have an impact on nightclubs, which were also expected to reopen on June 21st, alongside all other remaining venues.

As of May 17th, wedding restrictions have only been slightly eased, with 30 guests now able to attend events. Hugging and acts of intimacy are permitted, but activities such as dancing are still banned.

In other bridal news, we previously told you about poor Beth Deeley-Williamson - the unlucky bride who was forced to cancel her wedding seven times.

Beth was meant to marry her childhood sweetheart Jonty on April 4th last year, but the pair, both 29, were forced to cancel the festival-style wedding after Covid hit.

However, there was a happy ending for Beth, who managed to tie the knot with Jonty on the 28th April, where the couple decided just to make their marriage official and have a bigger celebration later in the year.

Fingers crossed all other married couples to be will be able to have the day of their dreams.
