Coronavirus restrictions on weddings and funerals have been eased across Scotland.
It means that a person will be able to walk a bride or groom down the aisle without the need to wear a face covering.
At funeral services, people from more than one household will also be able to carry a coffin and to take a cord when lowering it.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon described the changes – effective from Monday – as “minor, but important”, and said they are expected to have a “relatively minor” impact on Covid-19 transmission.
Live entertainment can also now take place at wedding receptions – although guests must remain seated.
Meanwhile, maximum numbers at weddings will not include anyone who is working at the event.
Speaking in the Scottish Parliament last week, Sturgeon announced a delay to the move towards level zero across Scotland.
However, the First Minister said the Scottish Government hopes that all major remaining restrictions will be lifted on August 9.
