Winters Barns Wedding Venue
Latest update regarding Covid–19 regulations
30th June 2020
We now have good news from Government that wedding ceremonies can recommence from July 4th.
Initially this is with a gathering of up to 30 people for a ceremony only.
All the individual households will need to socially distance during the ceremony, a seating plan will be set out in advance.
It is not allowed for this group of 30 people to have food or drink after the ceremony, even if they sit at separate tables at a venue, pub, restaurant or at home.
However, after the ceremony, two households can remain either inside or outside and have drinks and nibbles with table service.
If you wish to have more than two households remaining then the guidance states that should be for 6 people only, and to be outside not inside.
Although restrictive this does allow couples to marry in the presence of their close family and friends, which since lockdown has not been possible.
A bespoke food offering can be arranged with our caterers Scott Anderson Ltd for the households that can remain within the guidance.
Good news also is that the Government is urgently looking at ways to relax these restrictions, we have been told to expect details about this later in July. We fully expect weddings later this summer and onwards to have increasingly relaxed restrictions.
Where necessary we are making arrangements to postpone weddings, which within three months of the original date will incur no extra charge for weddings postponed to 2021 and a small increase to the food and drink element for 2022.
Our Autumn and Winter couples are holding tight with their original dates and many Summer couples have postponed to next year or 2022.
Winters Barns office is now manned in person seven days a week for any queries. During lockdown the barns and grounds have been beautifully maintained so that we are ready to go from July 4th.
Our team are ready to answer any queries you may have, and to help guide you through this time.
Take care and stay safe
