They cancelled out wedding 5 weeks before!!!

After going through the pandemic and being warned by many brides in Facebook groups the stress and turmoiled of planning a wedding during a pandemic me & my partner still agreed to go ahead. I guess we we're optimistic as we'd just gotten engaged during the lockdown, him working from home and me on furlough so seemed appropriate to use this new found time to plan our big day! We liaised with Rachel & had it all planned out to every last detail, that is until 5 weeks before the big day we were informed that they we're no longer able to facilitate our wedding due to a business obligation. No tangible explanation was given in my opinion, other than it seems they have decided to proceed with a corporate event they will financially gain more from. We are devastated! Its absolutely shocking how these companies are able to treat people like this. We were offered a full refund and apology however it is no consolation for what we've lost out on. Luckily all our vendors were understanding and agreed to rearrange, we will now have to wait another year for summer to do our big day! So disappointed.
