Congratulations to Stephen Brown and Danielle Machent who will tie the knot in Chesterfield on New Year's Eve.

“We got him through a close friend of Stephen’s, McSniper.

“We’re really excited – and finally we are certain it’s happening.

“Every day for a while we’ve woken up and checked the news because of the Covid situation, worried it was going to get cancelled.

“Fern Jacques-Smith, the wedding planner at the Casa, has been amazing every step of the way.”

Earlier this week, Health Secretary Sajid Javid confirmed there will be no more coronavirus restrictions implemented in England ahead of the New Year, meaning New Year's Eve events can go ahead as planned – but people are urged to exercise caution and, for example, take a lateral flow test before attending.
