Wedding industry workers suffer after new rules come into force | Meridian

People who work in the wedding industry in the South have spoken of their frustration as new rules have come into force. 

The number of guests allowed at a ceremony has been cut for 30 to 15.  One woman from Hampshire who does hair and make-up lost 7 bookings overnight after the Government announcement last week. 

Some couples though brought their weddings forward to avoid the new regulations.

Finally married after months of uncertainty, Nastassija and Adam planned their wedding 18 months ago for 120 guests.  It was hard enough cutting numbers to 30, so they brought their wedding forward a week to avoid making their big day even smaller.

Katy Djokic from Eversley would normal do hair and make up for 60 to 100 weddings a year.
