Throughout 2020 the events team at Harrow School hosted a number of intimate, covid-safe civil ceremonies for between 4 and 30 guests. This image of The Old Harrovian Room perfectly depicts what a covid-safe, civil ceremony set up would look like... 15 guests in household bubbles at a safe distance.

In January, Harrow’s events team would usually be busy hosting venue visits for newly engaged couples. An exciting new chapter begins when couples start to view potential wedding venues. However, due to the lockdown they are currently organising virtual meetings instead.
