Working Responsibly and Adhering To The Guidelines
It is important to note that the government guidelines guidance linked to above are by their very nature, a set of instructions rather than law, and therefore open to interpretation and more dangerously, exploitation through loopholes.
Please don’t seek to exploit the current guidelines by identifying loopholes or disregarding the advice in any sense. We urge you strongly to remember that these guidelines have been put in place to protect all of us; couples, guests, and suppliers.
