Becky Higgins, bride to be this year, has been planning her wedding for over two years.
She is hopping that her big day will take place, however she believes that getting married is the most important part for them and if that is in front of fewer family members then so be it.
Some weddings have still taken places and, although it wasn’t the day they had planned, it still went well for Loretta and Liam Smith who got married last September.
