Petition & Open Letter to the British Government

Updated: May 4, 2020

With more than 4,000 signatures as of 1 May 2020, this letter and petition have now been sent to the Government as a call for support for the wedding industry during COVID-19.

Read the letter and sign the petition here:

The global pandemic has led to the postponement and cancellation of thousands of weddings worldwide due to government regulations, yet wedding insurance providers in the UK are largely avoiding financial responsibility for those who had purchased wedding insurance, and instead passing the responsibilities onto the wedding venues to accommodate the losses. This petition and open letter to the government highlights the behaviour of wedding insurers, and requests support from the Government for the businesses affected.


The Association of British Wedding Businesses is an association that aims to support members of the British wedding industry during COVID-19. Our mission is to support our members with insights and advice, advocate for growth, and serve as liaison between the industry and government.

Founding memberships are free to all industry members and we encourage everyone to join.
