Couple marries at drive-in wedding to avoid 15-person coronavirus limit

Despite coronavirus regulations in the U.K., this couple was able to have 250 guests at their wedding — but they were all in cars.

Roma Popat, 30, and her now-husband Vinal Patel, 30, were married last Friday in a drive-in wedding ceremony on a 500-acre estate in Essex, England.

The couple had initially planned to get married in April, but when the pandemic hit, they decided to postpone to October, DailyMail.com reported.

“At the time, we did not understand the severity of the situation and were still holding out hope that we could have a re-arranged wedding for 700 guests, as originally planned,” Popat said, according to the British website.

Drive-in wedding in Essex bypasses coronavirus guest limit

With a global pandemic, heavy rain and a 15-person limit on nuptials to contend with, one couple decided there was only one way to do their big day: a drive-in wedding.

Roma Popat and Vinal Patel got around Covid-19 restrictions by letting 200 guests attend and watch the four-hour ceremony from the comfort of their own cars.

The pair got married in front of a small gathering of immediate family at Braxted Park, a 500-acre estate in Chelmsford, Essex, while friends and family watched on big screens from more than 100 cars parked outside. Another 300 guests tuned in via video link from around the world.

As is tradition with Hindu weddings, the groom made an entrance, travelling around the field before the ceremony and waving at guests, who still got dressed up for the occasion, from a decorated golf buggy driven by a member of venue staff wearing a
