Weddings taking place from the 2 December onwards will still be going ahead.
In all tiers it is still a requirement to

|Corby Cube – The Council Chamber ||15|
|Kettering Borough Council offices – The Mayors Parlour ||9 total attendees|
|Fletton House - Oundle ||15|

Please note these numbers have been decided by the District and Borough Councils, in line with the most recent guidance from the government, and are effective from Monday 28 September 2020. Please note the legal maximum is 15 as per central government guidance. Where the number is below 15 this is a result of the District and Borough Councils undertaking their own COVID-secure Risk Assessments.
