Campaign Materials: MP Letter Templates + Social Media Sharing

 

The entire wedding sector must be heard. Businesses deserve immediate support, and couples deserve clarity and a roadmap, and sadly, we do not have the privilege of time on our side. There isn’t a single day to waste on this.

The Prime Minister’s decision to reduce the number of people who can attend a wedding from 30 to 15, effective 28th September, makes our need for sector specific support to help us bridge the gap to the other side, critical and immediate.

Every single individual voice and small action taken towards supporting this campaign counts.

Please help us gain traction and be heard, so that we can elevate the status of our campaign and lobby together as one, strong, cohesive sector, recognised for it’s talent and expertise, the thousands of livelihoods that are dependent on it and the many billions it contributes to the UK economy annually.

Your voice counts. Make it heard.
