• Wedding liability coverage

Wedding liability insurance: helps protect you if someone causes property damage to the venue or someone is injured at your event. Up to $2 million in coverage can be purchased any time up to 1 day before your event. Policies start as low as $75.
Guaranteed to meet your venue's wedding insurance requirements, or your money back!
If your venue requires liability insurance, Markel will name your venue as an “additional insured” for no extra cost on your certificate of insurance. Click here to learn more about Markel's wedding liability coverage.
