It can be hard to find positives from the pandemic, but we’ve just seen reports that some old-fashioned wedding laws are changing! When lockdown began in 2020, many couples had to postpone their special day, with indoor mixing a pipe dream. As things relaxed, old marital laws exposed limits on where weddings could take place.
The law stated that non-religious wedding and civil partnership ceremonies had to take place strictly inside. That’s either inside a building or a permanent outdoor structure and we, evidently, love a temporary outdoor structure. A special license was offered over the last two years so that couples could host their marriage outside. This has now changed to a permanent rule change. While this doesn’t include religious ceremonies yet, support for further changes is high.

Outdoor Spring events
It can be hard to predict weather in the UK, however Spring brings hope of sunnier days. The Lewis Marquees team are excited to get out and pitch some marquees for all types of Spring events.
Spring is all about simple colours that give feelings of hope and optimism. Think, the pure white of a snowdrop, the bright pinks of cherry blossoms and yellow, orangey hues of daffodils. A large open-plan space accented with those pretty Spring colours will create a lovely space for a Spring event.
Weddings in 2022 seem to be split down the middle. Some are progressing beyond traditional rules and expectations and going for interesting fashion choices and bold colours. While others are looking into stepping back in time to a Bridgerton-Style wedding.
