Wedding Insurance and Public Liability

An increasing number of wedding venues are now insisting that couples take out some form of public liability insurance themselves - often £2 million of cover, sometimes £5 million or even more. This might be bought as a standalone insurance product or part of a more comprehensive wedding insurance policy.

Public liability insurance might cover situations such as:

Fortunately though, public liability cover can easily be purchased as part of a wedding insurance package. Some wedding insurance providers include public liability cover as a standard feature of their policies, whereas other insurers will add cover for just a small additional premium, usually around the £20 mark.

Public Liability vs Personal Liability

Many wedding insurance policies include cover for personal liability as standard. This offers similar protection to public liability, but usually only covers the Bride and Groom. Public liability extends this cover to those invited to the wedding or reception.

As with all insurance products, you should always read the small print carefully to check specifically what the policy does and doesn't include.
