Things you need to know– Regular updates during Covid 19
Although restrictions are easing in some states, as we know Victoria has had to lockdown parts of their state again due to a resurgence in Covid cases.
This is devastating news for our southern neighbours and my heart goes out to all the couples and celebrants that were hoping to have their ceremony with the eased restrictions.
This is an important reminder to us all to please keep safe and think about each other. Please do not attend a wedding or funeral if you are unwell.
If you wish to still plan your marriage there are of course guidelines to follow. Remember the NOIM (Notice of Intended Marriage) should be completed at least a month before the marriage (and lasts for 18 months).
This is the perfect time to arrange that with your celebrant.
