    I'd never even though of that but you may be on to something depending on how it affects people putting in their M10s. I dunno about down south but the vast majority of weddings now are done by humanists imo as opposed to ministers or registrars so it might NOT be that bad but certainly folk may need to be a bit pragmatic even if that means going through the whole shebang they've booked and paid for then getting the legal stuff sorted later on.

    On the upside I've taken a couple of more completely new bookings this week so when this does blow over, things will hopefully be looking sweet.

    I recently bumped my prices up quite a bit and I think (I could be wrong) that it'll be the guys in the 3-600 bracket that end up feeling the pinch when this blows over as the cheaper guys will always find work and folk who are still stable financially and have dough to throw at their wedding will want to go big with the suppliers.

    I've only seen one humanist wedding (I work in the South) and that was more because of the location they wanted to get married (not licensed). So they did the paperwork the day before.

    But even on that basis if you don't know when you can get legally married, it's another reason to hold off.

    Sadly, bad news all round.

    I have been hearing that a lot of registrars are refusing to take weddings until after 1st September AND THEN only taking rescheduled weddings, with new bookings not being taken until 2021.
