All of the following information is only applicable within the province of British Columbia. For the direct source of information please click HERE

Due to the current restrictions and circumstances pertaining to Covid-19, our company is taking the following steps to do our part to comply with the instructions provided by the Canadian government and appointed medical professionals:

  • All planners and coordinators will wear masks during any and all functions. This policy will be in place until it is no longer mandatory to wear masks in public spaces, which will be decided by Canada's and B.C.'s medical and government professionals.

  • Functions occurring at this time can only proceed with 10 people total (officiant included). This does not include the photographer or the planner. Receptions are not permitted indoors but may proceed outdoors so long as the group of 10 people are within the same bubble. All patrons must be practicing social distancing during the ceremony (all chairs 6 feet apart) and complying with other precautions ordered by health officials. This includes masks, hand sanitizer, and taking down contact information of everyone present. These restrictions are in place until the government states otherwise, after which weddings will be permitted to continue in a group size that is complicit with the new restrictions yet to be determined and announced by Canadian government and medical professionals.

  • These restrictions and policies do not change if you or some of your guests are vaccinated. These regulations are provided by the government of Canada, and not by Samantha Rose Weddings.

  • All functions booked at this time for 2022, that experience any cancellations relating to Covid-19 will receive a refund for any services not yet rendered, including the non-refundable deposit. The planner will also assist the couple in obtaining refunds from other vendors if applicable.

  • Bookings for the remainder of 2021 will be reviewed as a case by case scenario. We will continue planning for 2021 and 2022 with added contingency plans and new precautions in place depending on what is ordered by health officials at the time of booking, and the time of the wedding. Decisions to postpone or cancel will be made depending on how close your wedding date is.

  • All meetings with planners and coordinators will be done remotely (via Skype or Zoom) until a safe office space environment can return.

  • Destination Weddings can only be booked for as early as July 2022 until further notice.

  • Any style shoots wanting to book with us must have only one model (unless models are in the same bubble), no couples or group shots until the government restrictions have been lifted. All style shoot vendors onsite will be required to bring a personal hand sanitizer and a mask.
