Weddings update 2021!

Is your wedding planned with us or would you like to plan your wedding at The Plough?

Weddings ceremonies may currently take place with 15 people present however wedding breakfasts and celebrations are not permitted.

We do not know how long the restrictions will be in force however with the nationwide vaccination programme now taking place it is likely that the situation will change in the New Year with permitted numbers growing and become a lot more flexible after March 2021.

We are not currently anticipating having to reschedule any weddings beyond the beginning of April 2021.

We will continue to work with you to plan your amazing day and thank and congratulate our couples who have tied the knot with us in these strange times.

Keep happy and healthy and we’ll see you soon. x
