As a special provision, the bride and groom may be unmasked throughout the marriage solemnisation (excluding ROM/M Building) or wedding reception event. To enjoy the unmasking provision, the wedding couple is required to (i) undergo an Antigen Rapid Test (ART) minimally supervised by the venue operator3 (either in person or virtually); or (ii) have a valid Pre-Event Test (PET) within 24 hours prior to the end of the event.
Should the bride and groom opt not to undergo the ART or PET, they may remove their face shields or mask for key moments only (e.g. when exchanging vows for rings, kiss, march-in/outs).
Mask-wearing continues to be required for indoor settings but is optional in outdoor settings. However, we encourage individuals to wear their masks even when outdoors for personal protection and to protect others, especially in crowded areas4. Masks may be removed momentarily for photo-taking and must be worn immediately after.
On the use of masks and face shield, please refer to the latest guidelines here.
3 Venue operator refers to the party that has charge, management or control of the room or place where the event takes place, during the period of the event.
4 Children aged twelve years and below, who may have difficulty wearing and keeping face masks on for a prolonged period of time, may wear a face shield as indicated in MOM’s Advisory of 1 Jun 2020 (“Guidance for Use of Masks and Face Shields”)
