Masks off outdoors in Victoria for last stage of easing, NSW to open to Victorians tomorrow22nd November 2020
During the pandemic, the maximum number of wedding guests varied from 10 to 50 and finally on Sunday came the happy news from Premier Daniel Andrews that up to 150 would be allowed at weddings.
Ms McNamara, of Chirnside Park, said her wedding was booked for November 27 at a winery at Wandin North, in the Yarra Valley, before COVID-19 emerged.
“But we decided to keep it there and try and wing it, and hope it would still go ahead,” she said.
“There have been so many ups and downs. Just the constant changes and not knowing what’s happening.
“Everything’s been really last minute. There have been some emotional days. I feel like it has been a lot more stressful than it normally would be, for sure.”
Guests will still have to wear masks – unless they are socially distanced outside.
“But we’re just excited to be able to go ahead with the wedding at all,” Ms McNamara said.
Ms McNamara, who runs a hairdressing business, said the pandemic had taught her to focus on the positives and be patient.
She said the wedding would be “a day to remember because nobody’s really been able to do anything until now. So it’ll be special. Extra special.”
