What You Can And Cant Do At A Wedding With 30 Guests Covid-19 Coronavirus

Update 27th February 2021: For the moment during Lockdown 3 we have given up on trying to update this page. Once Covid restrictions have been eased we will attempt to make sense of it all again.

You can read wedding band Punch The Air new page regarding getting your wedding back on track after 21st June 2021 which includes the Covid Wedding Calendar. This advises you how many guests can attend your weddings on which date of each of the four steps.

Please note: There is some spurious “Business” going around called the “Wedding Taskforce” who are claiming to know everything about the future of weddings. They are advising worried clients thing like “Everything will be back to normal by April”. If you yourself look at what is going on regarding when schools are going back, then when pubs are potentially opening back up again you’ll see this simply cannot be true. Also this business has NOTHING to do with the Government what so ever. Do not be fooled by their guess work. 


Previous Coronavirus wedding information.

Updated Wednesday 9th September 2020 – Social gatherings are back down to no more than six people but Weddings are excluded from this “Rule Of Six / 6 People Limit”. So read on…..We still live in uncertain times regarding wedding with 30 guests or wedding with 15 guests with the Covid-19 epidemic still around. Even with everything laid out by continuously by the government the virus situation is still very unclear. Can you or can’t you currently get married with the outbreak still controlling the country? Should you even get married at this moment in time or should you still isolate or be in quarantine? How will your wedding be different to everything you ever dreamed it would be? Are you allowed Covid wedding entertainment?

Good news: Rule Of Six / 6 People Limit does not affect Weddings. (Hands. Face. Space.)

Now that regular Government press conferences have ended how will you be able to keep up to date with the latest wedding Covid-19 do’s and don’ts? What WHO World Health Organization advise is often too long winded to read in its entirety for some people. Below we outline what you can and cant do at a wedding with 30 guests during Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic.  

Wedding With 30 Guests

So we’re going to attempt to answer some of the most asked questions here regarding Covid secure weddings. We will update this page regularly as and when the government provide us with more information. It will feature all the latest wedding rules during Coronavirus. So please remember to bookmark this page for future reference. You can also read more about planning or rescheduling your Coronavirus wedding in 2020 / 2021.

(Latest update Wednesday 9th September 4:30pm)

Questions and answers about weddings with thirty guests.  What can I and what can’t I do at my wedding with 30 guests.

These are your unanswered questions about the new thirty guests at a wedding rule.

Can I get married now?

Yes, as of 15th August 2020 you can now get married again…With up to 30 guests attending your wedding ceremony. Guests names and addresses will need to be supplied to assist with Test And Trace contact tracing. “Ceremonies need to be kept as short as reasonably possible. Limited as far as reasonably possible to the parts of the ceremonies that are required in order for the marriage or civil partnership to be legally binding”.

Can I have a same sex civil partnerships wedding or civil ceremony?

Yes, see above for marriages.

More of what you can and can’t do at weddings on / after Saturday 15th August 2020.

 

Can I get married in another venue thats not a place of worship/church?

Yes but marriage ceremonies should only take place at COVID-19 secure environments.

Do bridesmaids, flower girls, ushers, groomsmen, photographers, staff etc count towards my 30 guests?

Yes, bridesmaids, flower girls, ushers, groomsmen etc do count towards your 30 guests. This also includes photographers and security. But it does not include staff employed by the venue or any third party catering staff.

Does the vicar/marriage officiant count as one of my 30 guests?

Yes, your vicar/marriage officiant does count as one of my 30 guests

What You Can And Cant Do At A Wedding With 30 Guests Covid-19 Coronavirus
What You Can And Cant Do At A Wedding With 30 Guests Covid-19 Coronavirus

Entertainment, music and singing.

Can I have a wedding band play / have live music at my wedding?

No. Government guidelines state “At this time, venues should not permit indoor performances, including drama, comedy and music, to take place in front of a live audience. (Update to follow soon, possibly from 15th August 2020)”. Helping to stop spread the infection is quite rightly more important than entertainment right now. Can I have a band at my wedding covid? No.

Can I have a band play at my wedding within a place or worship, Covid secure wedding venue?

No although the guidance states “Where required for the marriage or civil partnership, only one individual should be permitted to sing or chant, and the use of plexi-glass screens should be considered to protect guests, as this will further prevent transmission and the screen can be easily cleaned.” So in theory a Covid Secure acoustic wedding singer musician could perform for you as you walk down the aisle. 

Covid Safe Wedding Band
Covid Safe Wedding Band

Can we sing songs / sing along at our wedding ceremony?

No. You must refrain from singing at your wedding ceremony. This (as with everything on this page) is to mitigate the risks of contagion of Coronavirus transmission.

Can we dance at our wedding?

If you are not allowed wedding music of any kind then what will you actually be dancing to? The government state “Wedding receptions or parties should not currently be taking place” but have not mentioned anything about the wedding couple dancing together. When in doubt use your common sense.

Questions and answers about the numbers of guests at a wedding and social distancing.

Is it 30 guests plus myself and my parter as the bride or groom or 28 guests plus the bride and groom?

It is 30 people at a wedding full stop. So that is the couple getting married plus 28 other people/guests.

If I book a wedding band for my wedding reception are they part of the 30 allowed guests?

Wedding bands and live music are currently not allowed at weddings of any kind. As to whether band members will be classed within your number of guests in the future is currently unclear. 

Do babies count as wedding guests covid?

Yes, babies are classed as a full guest at a covid wedding.

Do we still need to observe one plus metre social distancing rules with friends and family from outside our home at our wedding?

One plus metre social distancing should still be adhered to under all circumstances.

About the wedding breakfast and wedding reception.

Can we have a wedding breakfast / sit down meal with our 30 guests?

Yes, we presume…but this is still slightly muddy. The Government document states “Sit down meals for no more than 30 people and subject to Covid-19 Secure guidance. This change will not take place until at least 15 August, at the earliest.” So does that mean you can or you can’t have a wedding breakfast as long as with Coronavirus secure guidance is adhered to?

Can we have an evening wedding reception / wedding party?

No, not as in a wedding reception in a wedding venue. The guidelines state “Wedding receptions or parties should not currently be taking place.” But it then goes on to state “Any celebration after the ceremony should follow the broader social distancing guidance of involving no more than two households in any location or, if outdoors, up to 6 people from different households.”. Which we assume means along lines of its OK if you go back to someones house after the ceremony. NOT a full blown party in a wedding reception venue. 

If I have a wedding reception, are waiting, serving and bar staff classed as guests?

Wedding receptions are currently a no-no situation. As to whether waiting, serving and bar staff will be classed within your number of 30 guests moving forward is currently unclear. Although we assume the number of guests will increase in the future and then waiting, serving and bar staff will be included in this number. Or a new separate number of “Staff” will be added to the equation.


Summing up the 30 wedding guests rule.

There is a LOT of conflicting information supplied by the Government right now. And to sum up there is not currently 100% clarity on what you can and can’t do at a wedding with only 30 guests. If you want a fully functional/normal wedding then you may want to possibly hold off a little longer when social distancing restrictions will be lifted further. Then you will be able to have your wedding more like the way you have always dreamed of.

If you have any further questions regarding the above rules and regulations then please message us on our Facebook page. We will do our best to answer your questions as fast as possible.

Could This Be What The Future Of Wedding Entertainment Will Look Like?

Moving forward and hopefully one day out of the Covid-19 pandemic the way live music is performed to an audience at a wedding will have to change….At least for an unknown amount of time. Unfortunately it’s not just as simple as putting on a face mask for wedding band ‘Punch The Air’. A wedding musician can’t sing properly through a face covering. So what might the future of wedding entertainment look like and what is a possible solution? Read our other articles about Covid-19 bookings, what you can and can’t do at a wedding with 30 guests. Also solid advice on planning a wedding during Coronavirus, booking and rescheduling a wedding during the Coronavirus. Furthermore booking a Covid secure wedding band.

Covid-19 Wedding Entertainment Solutions

Professional wedding band ‘Punch The Air’ believe it might be transparent barriers and screens placed on stage between musicians and their audiences. Surely this or something very similar will be the only way to once again have live music indoors at wedding venues in the foreseeable future. It will in theory enable wedding venues to once again re-open fully for live entertainment now the Covid-19 lockdown has been eased. 

About Screens

Clear perspex drum screens have been utilised for many years for live musicians. They are mainly used to reflect the sound/volume of loud drummers backwards onto stage so as not to be picked up by vocal microphones. These plastic screens can often be seen on stage with famous bands like Blondie and The Who (Both Clem Burke and Zak Starkey being heavy hitters). But these types of polycarbonate or acrylic sheets could be made larger to cover the entire front of the stage area. So no longer just being used to reflect noise but to possibly help suppress the spread of Coronavirus too. This would be a great alternative to unusable face masks and face coverings for a live band.

Covid-19 Wedding Entertainment Solutions
Covid-19 Wedding Entertainment Solutions

These types of barriers are already being used now throughout supermarkets across the UK to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. So why can’t they work in a similar manner for wedding music too? 

Are Perspex Screens The Future Of Wedding Entertainment At Wedding Venues?

The perspex screens would likely be semi-permanent fixtures in a venue. Only used while the Government, customers and staff feel there is still a risk of Covid-19 being transmitted. They would need to be affixed secure enough so as not to fall over if knocked into by guests. As to whether a full screen that is completely impassable by a wedding band is used (So in essence the band are playing in a separate room behind a large window). Where the plexiglass screen is secured floor, to ceiling, to walls. Or just partial (Up to eight foot in height) and removable, these are at least some possible options to be considered to help stay Covid secure.

Coronavirus Wedding Band
Coronavirus Wedding Band

How will the band set up their equipment in front and behind the screen?

Band members would perform behind the screen covering most or all of the stage area with the PA system placed in front of the screen to the sides. This isn’t actually all that much different to how a band would set up and perform pre Covid-19. 

Who will supply the screens?

The screens would be supplied by the venue and would have to be cleaned after and before each wedding.

What scientific evidence is there that musician screens will work effectively to help stop the spread of the pandemic?

Currently this is merely an idea so of course testing would need to be done to make sure the screens function to help a venue stay Covid secure.

Summing up the Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Helping to stop the spread of Covid-19.
  • Live entertainment able to take place indoors again at wedding venues.
  • Keeping guests off the stage area.
  • Possibly easier to mix the bands front of house sound (as no backline spill).

Cons:

  • Disconnection of the band from their audience.
  • Looks strange.
  • May be an issue for photographers to shoot through.
  • Cost to venue (No doubt one way or another passed onto clients).
  • Timescale to erect either on a permanent or semi permanent basis. Plus may leave holes in walls/floors/ceilings once removed.
  • Issues with the band loading in/out behind the screened area.
  • Will not be possible to install at all wedding venues. (Especially listed buildings).

You can safely pre book professional wedding band ‘Punch The Air‘ for your wedding. With our 100% deposit refund Covid policy if you have to cancel your wedding due to the Coronavirus for any reason you will never lose any money with us.  As the days go by the future of wedding entertainment looks brighter and brighter and we’d love to play a part of your special day.

Weddings With A Maximum Of 30 Guests

1st February 2021: This page will next be updated when we are out of Lockdown 3. In the meanwhile please consider booking your wedding from at least October 2021 onwards. 


The Coronavirus pandemic had been a very trying time for brides and grooms still wanting to tie the knot and get married. The Covid-19 pandemic has meant that wedding dates have been pushed further and further back. The outbreak has had such an affect that some wedding plans have been put on hold permanently. All delays were serious disappointments for brides and grooms. But now, with the epidemic easing, the time has come to finally book a wedding once again. Although it’s not quite time to book a wedding band yet as live music is still not allowed at weddings with a maximum of 30 guests. (Read our constantly up to date article on What You Can & Can’t Do At A Wedding With Thirty Guests with the new rules on and after Saturday 4th July 2020).

Weddings With A Maximum Of 30 Guests
Weddings With A Maximum Of 30 Guests

You can now finally book weddings with a maximum of 30 guests.

With the fantastic news that Covid-19 lockdown social distancing restrictions have been relaxed further. So you can now book a wedding venue with a maximum of 30 guests. But there are certain restrictions being applied to your Covid secure wedding. What you can and can’t do at a wedding with 30 guests is a very long list of mostly unanswered questions. Being a three piece wedding band makes ‘Punch The Air‘ the ideal choice for your special day when it’s finally possible to have live bands again. As we will only be taking up 10% of your allotted thirty guests. Or you can hire Andy Starkey solo acoustic wedding musician and still have 29 guests remaining.

In the weeks and days before your wedding we encourage you to still be alert and vigilant to avoid catching the respiratory illness. Avoid close contact with people from outside your family and always stick to the new 1 metre plus social distancing rules. Always still try to stay at home as much as possible. Check the latest UK updates from WHO World Health Organization. All of which will help lead to a safer wedding for you and your guests.

Should any of your guests fall ill and not be able to attend your wedding reception and need to self-quarantine then you could always utilise apps to host Zoom Weddings and Facetime weddings. This way then can still be a part of your very special day. You don’t need to cancel or postpone your wedding any more. It’s time to get back to normal. 

Our attitude towards your booking and you during Covid-19. Weddings With A Maximum Of 30 Guests

Handling thirty guests at a wedding

While at your wedding your venue will no doubt be utilising contact tracing via mobile phone apps. Also by obtaining details of each guest so they can trace each person in the event of an outbreak. All of which are nothing to be worried about of course. As all of this will already be taking place in pubs and restaurants.
