A Belfast couple whose wedding was postponed due to Covid-19 have been left in limbo around whether their rescheduled big day will go ahead.
With cases of the virus rising rapidly, further changes to the rules for weddings, civil partnerships and receptions have been introduced in Northern Ireland.
The Executive's tougher measures to stem the spread of coronavirus mean wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships will be limited to 25 people, with no receptions, from next Monday.
Tim Atkinson and his fiancee Becca Harper originally planned to get married on March 28 after two years of planning and saving.
Their wedding was booked for over 120 guests, around 50 of whom were due to travel from England, Scotland and Wales, including Tim's whole family, as he is originally from Yorkshire.
With their big day previously called off less than two weeks beforehand due to venues closing and travel bans being imposed to deal with the pandemic, they wanted to do something positive to mark the occasion.
Tim (38) and Becca (30) turned that nightmare into one of the happiest days of their lives to date by hosting a "commitment ceremony" online on the day they were due to get married.
They plan to take their wedding vows on November 14, the day after circuit breaker restrictions introduced this week are due to end.
But three days after Stormont ministers agreed the latest measures, they are still trying to find answers to many questions around their venue being open, travel restrictions and a possible lockdown extension.
"Just like seven months ago - with weeks to go to our wedding we have no idea whether we can marry with our loved ones present and move on happily with our lives or not," said Becca, who has made a direct appeal to Executive ministers for guidance.
"We want to do the right thing, we want to save the NHS and we want to save lives," she said.
"But that doesn't have to be at the detriment of life plans and livelihoods. We don't want to postpone again because we love each other and we want to be married.
"We want this year to end with some happiness - 2020 hasn't beaten us yet."
Becca said she also wants clarity for their many suppliers. "Our booking might be one of a few left in 2020 that could be the difference between paying their mortgage for that month or not. If these suppliers can't work, their businesses could close and this could affect weddings for years to come.
"Covid-19 has taken so much from so many people - it shouldn't take our marriage and the livelihoods of our much loved suppliers. We don't care about restrictions, we can cut our guest list from 128 to 25, we're fine without dancing or speeches. We can make whatever work. We just want to marry.
"But at the moment we need answers. We have questions for the NI Executive that we're struggling to get answers for.
"We don't need sympathy, we need kindness and clarity."
The Executive Office did not respond to a request for comment.
