There is a stark contrast in the way bars, pubs restaurants operate compared to that of a wedding despite being very similar eg multiple people in one space, socially distanced with music, food & drinks. Multiple Individuals (capacity permitting) can remain in a pub for the duration of the day without much limitation apart from distancing, whereas a wedding is heavily restrained with a cap on guests, activities and time limits in cases. Please can this balance, especially on guests be reviewed.
