Masks on: the new twist in Covid wedding photos

Wedding organisers seem to have been dealt a blow as new mask rules come into force next week.

The Ministry of Health's Covid-19 website has been updated, and now says people attending gatherings must wear a face mask, and that masks cannot be removed for photographs, but can be taken off to eat and drink.

A petition to have the rule changed has already gathered thousands of signatures (more than 7,000 in its first 6 hours), and callers to Marcus' show weren't afraid to share their opinions either.

UPDATE: A spokesperson from the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet has said these rules don't apply to gatherings where you have the exclusive use of the venue, including weddings.
