Allow marriages of limited numbers

My son and his fiancee are waiting to get married. They have a strong faith and their marriage is important for them to be together and move on as one unit. They are happy for numbers to be restricted as with funerals. For those of faith (and others ) making these vows to one another is very important and thus marriage ceremonies should be allowed with obvious distancing measures and specific numbers attending in place.

Why the contribution is important

Many couples have waited a long time to get to their wedding day. With the restrictions on numbers includes weddings will pose no risk but are crucially important for those who wish to make these vows to each other

    Even if just the couple and two witnesses - all can be done with social distancing guidelines.

    Clarification required as soon as possible in order for planning to begin.

    yes agree this is very important- for some people there is too much being put on hold at critical stages of their life

    Completely agree. Please allow marriages to take place, even if only the couple, their celebrant and two witnesses are present, Could be held outside or in a spacious building such as empty church, where social distancing is easy. Celebrations can wait, but no reason marriage ceremony could not happen. Witnessed online marriage ceremony would be an alternative. Issuing and returning of the marriage schedule could surely be done electronically until registrars are in a position to receive hard copy.

    I agree that small weddings should be allowed asap - lives are on hold yet some people don't have the luxury of time to wait.

    Weddings held of up to 100. Helps businesses especially small-bakers, florists, car hire etc.

    I agree that it should be permitted for marriages to take place, These can be small affairs. As stated previously there are many who for faith reasons are not going to live together until they are legally married and it is important that those who are currently planning to do so would be allowed to carry this out . The opportunity for a larger celebration can take place at a later date.
