The government has stated weddings can take place again as the country tries to get back to some sort of normality following the coronavirus pandemic.
Fathers will have to get used to a new normal under new guidelines for wedding ceremonies.
Under the “new normal” social distancing guidelines, dads will not be permitted to walk their daughters down the aisle linking arms, if they are not from the same household
Along with this, singing, shouting and playing music will also be limited in a bid to prevent the spread of the deadly bug.
Although weddings can take place from this month, strict coronavirus social distancing rules mean dads will not be able to walk their daughters linking arms down the aisle.
However, under new guidance the bride and groom will have to wash their hands before and after exchanging the rings, reports The Sun.
Wedding ceremonies will also be limited in time, only focusing on the legal aspects of the marriage.
“This is because of the potential for increased risk of transmission from aerosol and droplets,” reports The Sun.
A government source says: “People should avoid singing, shouting, raising voices and/or playing music at a volume that makes normal conversation difficult or that may encourage shouting.
To comply with social distancing measures, events will be limited to 30 guests.
If not, they may walk together, however stand one metre apart.
Under the strict guidance, dads cannot walk their daughters hand in hand down the aisle – unless they are from the same household.
Last week, speaking to the House of Commons, Boris Johnson said: “I know that many have mourned the closure of places of worship and this year Easter, Passover and Eid all occurred during the lockdown.
Despite weddings being permitted this month, some county councils will wait till at least September to reopen wedding venues, reports The Daily Telegraph.
“So I am delighted that places of worship will be able to reopen for prayer and services, including weddings, with a maximum of 30 people, all subject to social distancing.”
