Planning a post-Covid wedding

In lockdown 3.0 most of us would be hard pushed to remember a time when we could plan a wedding without having to consider the necessary social restrictions. Usual headaches like seating plans and flowers seem minor in comparison to having to contend with whether The Big Day can even go ahead or how the guest list can be reduced enough to comply. Even with the initial successes of the vaccine rollout, we're all still facing a long road ahead, before we can get back to normality.

Check out Houchins, Coggeshall's beautiful barn venue

Although this country barn wedding venue is situated just off the A120 near Coggeshall, Houchins is hidden away and set in its own peaceful, landscaped grounds. The zinc and cedar-shingle barn is nestled in the Wedding Garden, surrounded by abundant plants and flowers. Huge glass folding double doors open on to an expansive west-facing terrace to give the feeling of bringing the outside in, and for loved ones to enjoy views over the elegant marquee and pond.

Government announcement – what we need to happen

With less than a week to go until Monday the 22nd February, the whole wedding industry waits on Boris Johnson's announcement to outline the roadmap out of lockdown. Here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we have completely and whole-heartedly empathised with the whole of our wedding community, from the couples who have had to postponed their weddings on multiple occasions, to the businesses that have had to adapt to new restrictions and regulations to overcome such dire prospects in the last year. The UK wedding industry normally hosts 20 million wedding guests and 252,000 weddings every year, worth more than £10billion to Britain's economy. Unbelievably despite these astronomical figures, many wedding industry professionals have had little if any support from government financial schemes over the course of the last year.

De Vere donates over £200,000 to NHS Charities Together
