Live streaming platform for weddings launches amid Coronavirus pandemic

e-there.com allows couples to broadcast their wedding to guests who are unable to attend
With the spread of Coronavirus forcing mass gatherings and events around the world to be cancelled, couples set to hold their wedding in the next few months are left in a state of uncertainty.
The threat of infection and travel restrictions are not only causing couples to query whether their wedding should go ahead at all but, if it does so, certain guests might not be able to attend.
Founded by Mark West initially to allow wedding venues to live stream their ceremonies, e-there.com now offers a self-stream app which the couple can set up themselves.
The self-streaming service was launched to provide a way for couples to include distant, self-isolated or vulnerable family members in the celebrations from afar.
Mark says: “COVID-19 has put countless weddings in peril as people attempt to stop the rapid spread of this disease through social distancing. Since our platform was designed to help people participate in events remotely, we wanted to present our solution as a way for people to continue with their weddings from anywhere in the world while on lock down."
“We created e-there to use technology for the right reasons: to bring people together when circumstance would not allow," he continues. "With social distancing being so critical at this point in time, we hope to play a part in stopping the spread of COVID-19 while allowing people to still experience the family events that are so important to them.”
Couples can set up their private live stream via e-there.com and share the link with an unlimited number of guests. The platform also enables guests to record 'e-there moments', video messages for the newlyweds which can be compiled in a digital guest book, and couples will also receive a recording of their wedding vows to revisit for years to come.
