FAQs - Weddings during COVID-19
More than 95% of our clients who've already booked their wedding with us have rescheduled their event to a later date. 
However, we also understand that you may not be able to reschedule your wedding due to personal reasons. We've come up with some FAQs that may be useful for you to organise your wedding with minimal hassles.
