The CMA has published their wedding-specific guidance on laws relating to contracts which have been, or will be, affected by COVID-19.
Contracts for weddings right up to 30th September are likely to be deemed as "frustrated", with couples entitled to a full refund unless businesses can demonstrate actual losses specifically incurred in delivering that contract. The big surprise in the guidance is that even then, those losses should be equally divided with the couple and the business.
For weddings after 30th September, if a key element such as the venue, catering or reception including entertainment can't be delivered safely and within guidance, the contract will also be deemed as frustrated. Any restricted weddings going ahead should receive a pro-rata price reduction.
Where couples choose to cancel, penalties must be fair and based on costs incurred.
Mountain Celebrations will be launching it’s franchise options on the 1st of August 2020.

Working Safely In Vehicles
The UK government has released guidance for people who work in or from vehicles, which may be useful to funeral directors, suppliers to the profession in all parts of the United Kingdom.
It has been prepared by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) with input from firms, unions, industry bodies and the devolved administrations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and in consultation with Public Health England (PHE) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Remember Me - A Memorial to Those Who Have Died as a Result of Covid-19
More than 4,000 names have already been added to the virtual memorial for all those in the United Kingdom, of all faiths and none, lost as a result of COVID-19 - and the number is growing every day.
The project is backed by HRH The Prince of Wales and is free to participate in. Please share the details with your client families and local communities. There are already plans in place for a physical memorial in St Paul's Cathedral too.
