Mr Souter said she was very "chuffed" and hopes to take full advantage when lockdown eases next week. 

She said: "I am starting next week with prearranged appointments here in The Forge Room at the workshop to finalise details with all my lovely couples who have their weddings in the next few months, many of whom have moved their dates at least once and in some cases several times due to the current situation.

"I am continuing to deliver gift bouquets and funeral tributes as I have been over the last several months, adhering to all social distancing rules."
