Weddings can take place from June 21 with no limit on the amount of guests, although other restrictions will remain.

There will be no numerical limit on either receptions or ceremonies - either indoors or outdoors.

The 30-person limit will also be lifted on weddings outdoors on private land, including in gardens, but there will be a risk assessment which organisers need to fill out.

It will mean weddings with hundreds of people can go ahead after months of uncertainty.

However other restrictions on weddings, including the ban on singing and dancing, will remain in place until Step Four of the roadmap goes ahead.

Guests will also have to wear masks at certain points during the wedding.

People at an indoor venue will need to be on tables of no more than six people and indoor venues must shut off their dance floors, apart from for the “first dance”.

Marquees on private land need to have two sides open to qualify as 'outdoors'.

The rule of six indoors still applies to weddings in private homes, except for deathbed weddings, which can have up to 30 guests.
