Small weddings could be allowed to take place from June as the Government looks at how to allow people to gather in larger groups.
Officials are examining how to make small weddings possible, but no earlier than next month.
A Covid-19 document published today sets out what the Government sees as possible now, and what may be possible in the future.
It includes a timetable on lifting restrictions step by step.
Under step two – to be made no earlier than June 1 – it says officials are “examining how to enable people to gather in slightly larger groups to better facilitate small weddings”.
But it says places of worship could be closed until July 4 at the earliest, dependent on whether they can adequately enforce social distancing measures.
All social events, including weddings but excluding funerals, were halted when the Government announced lockdown measures on March 23.
Before this, the Church of England restricted weddings during the outbreak to a maximum of five people, including the bride and groom.
Giving details on step two of the plan, officials said they are considering a range of options to “reduce the most harmful social effects” of the lockdown.
It adds that officials will “engage on the nature and timing of the measures” in the coming weeks.
Places of worship are included in the third part of the plan, where officials say the “ambition” is to open public places no earlier than July 4.
On Sunday evening, Justice Secretary Robert Buckland indicated that there may be a change to rules regarding weddings, saying to “watch this space”.
Mr Buckland told BBC Radio 4’s Westminster Hour: “You’ll be glad to know that we are giving anxious consideration to the issue of marriages.”
