Jacob Gatley features in the Times: options facing couples with cancelled weddings due to Covid-19

Jacob Gatley, features in today’s Times discussing how engaged couples are being left with little option other than to “reluctantly seek legal redress to recover their money” from suppliers after their wedding has been cancelled due to Coronavirus. He says:

“The legal remedies available to consumers will depend on which of the parties cancelled the wedding, when the venue could legally be open, or if it was unable to go ahead because it would have breached lockdown laws. In the case of the latter, we would say that the contract is frustrated and the consumer will be entitled to a refund but this is entirely dependent on the facts.”

If you are affected by this issue, please contact Jacob Gatley on 01753 889995 or email jacob.gatley@bpcollins.co.uk.
