There are many sayings. One I use a lot is “don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today”.

These are strange times. IMO Eduardo and Beatrice should have an intimate wedding now. If the family and friends want to view through video let them. The couple can always have another blessing to be more like a wedding with a reception when it is safe.

An older friend looked at our small group las week and said “This reminds me of WWII, rationing, power buying, shortages of food, medicines in some areas, money in some areas and thankfully no gasoline shortages, but staying inside, and looking at everyone as if they could be the enemy. But this enemy is a virus, their are no planes and no bombs but many injuries and deaths. I never thought in my lifetime I would see this again”. We all sat dead silent.

So IMO...go for it lovely couple, you don’t know what the next day brings. The heck with the public, think this time of yourselves.

I am afraid that this will take more than a few months

All weddings have been banned, so the question's sadly now irrelevant.

If things are cleared by then I can see Beatrice and Edoardo having their wedding in autumn instead, or if not by the same date in 2021, if they really wanted a spring wedding.

Is it still possible to have the ceremony with the minister, the bride, the groom, and the two witnesses?

No, weddings have been banned. All religious services except funerals have been banned.

That's sad. But I didn't really think they would get married with just two witnesses anyway.

Its sad for everyone in the country who wished to get married.

Beatrice and Edo are lucky in that they can afford financially to postpone the wedding and any plans that had been already paid for. Many couples would not be so lucky in the end.

In the end it works out better that they have to put it on hold. They deserve the wedding they want. Not some tiny ceremony with not even their family.

As I predicted it: next year same place same time for Edo and Beatrice.
According to the expectations of experts around Boris Johnson, restrictions might take a year time.
Experts in the Netherlands expect the restrictions to take many more months time.

The Aussie PM has been saying six months for the restrictions we have - i.e. until my birthday in September but we are southern hemisphere and so are currently in autumn and approaching winter, when we will also have to deal with the annual flu outbreaks down here (and that often takes up the majority of our ICU beds in winter).

I would love her to put it back a few days i.e. to the Monday rather than on the Friday - as I will be in London on the Monday but in the air on the Friday ... with the changes to my travel plans forced on me as a result of this virus.

Yes. Married Life is what is important, the marriage celebration important, but less so.

They already live the married life. A piece of paper won’t change much.

It’s a moot point anyways. They can’t get married at all even with just a minister.

I find it ridiculous that people are it’s so horrid that she loses her wedding and has to wait. But thinking sneaking a priest in for a clandestine wedding alone is the best option for her. Yes she deserves a great wedding(......) At the very least they deserve their immediate family.

A lot of couples have had to postpone their weddings. It's disappointing for everyone, but it's just the way it is. I wish them all lovely ceremonies and every happiness when this is over.

As I said: Next year, same place.

Why wait? The Prince of Wales and the Princess Royal both married in extremely intimate settings (Windsor Guildhall respectively Crathie Kirk) with their present life-partners. These marriage are as valid as their big bombastic (and failed) first ones.

I think the point being made is that there are *no* weddings allowed at all in the UK at this time.

Beatrice and Edo will have to wait because the government have ordered that all weddings are cancelled until the quarantine measures set in place to fight the Corona virus are lifted.
