P-05-1057 Increase the number of people allowed to attend wedding receptions


This petition was submitted by Simon Clark having collected a total of 984 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

We have a wedding planned for the end of October, but currently cannot have a reception following with all of our guests. We could have a meal in a restaurant but not a ‘reception’.


Additional Information:

Northern Ireland currently allows venues to limit the numbers based on the size of the venue and safe social distancing. We would like to see this introduced in Wales. Giving parity between the restaurant/bar industry and the wedding industry.


The current regulations and lack of timeline moving forward have left hundreds of couples in limbo and under a huge amount of stress, during what should be the happiest time of their lives.
