Mullan welcomes resumption of indoor weddings

Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan  has welcomed the move by the Executive to allow weddings, civil partnerships and baptisms to resume indoors. 

Karen Mullan  said: 

“I welcome the move from the Executive to allow weddings, civil partnerships and baptisms to resume indoors as part of the further easings of COVID-19 restrictions. 

“It will mean ceremonies can take place indoors in places of worship, hotels and registry offices from Friday, July 10 in line with social distancing guidelines. 

“It will be up to the venues themselves to determine the number of people allowed depending on the size of the venue and how they can accommodate guests while ensuring social distancing. 

“This news will be welcomed by couples planning weddings and parents organising baptisms. 

“I would encourage people to continue to follow the guidelines so we can continue to keep moving in the right direction.”
