  • Wedding Cancellation

    We recently cancelled our wedding for 29.12.21 as the additional costs for the venue on top of what we were quoted were getting too ridiculous.
    We were never given a contract to sign, however did pay a deposit for the date. Would we be entitled to our deposit back because of the lack of contract?

      You must have signed a contract binding the agreement and all the terms. You can still contest or demand for the deposit (do hope you have relevant docs pertaning to the deposit made).

        You entered into a contract when you instructed the company to arrange (you don't state exactly what their role was) your wedding and paid them a deposit. A written contract isn't required. As you have cancelled you still may be able to get some or all of your deposit back. Ask the company to detail what losses they have incurred as a result.

        ​​​​If this company can get another wedding to replace yours and doesn't suffer any loss as a result of your cancellation they should return a portion or all of your deposit. Given the backlog of weddings into next year due to Covid-19 I doubt they will struggle to find a replacement couple for you.

        ​​​​​​If however they can show they have spent your deposit on something to facilitate your wedding then it may be difficult to get anything back.
