Head of the Wedding Legal Team, Pranav Bhanot, said: ‘There a number of aspects to the law around weddings which tend to be focused on the couple’s big day. We have developed a huge expertise in this area whether successfully helping brides and grooms claim compensation when they have been let down to protecting wedding venues who have come under fire through no fault of their own.
‘House purchases aside, for the vast majority of people the wedding day will be the most expensive outlay of their lives and understand how emotions run high.
‘We are able to bring a calm head to proceedings to explain to couple’s what practical legal steps they can take to resolve outstanding issues. This is why we have also introduced our unique mediation service.
‘Similarly, for wedding venue owners and suppliers we understand the extreme stress that owners find themselves in if they suddenly face legal action. Our strategy is to put as many contractual safeguards in place as possible to protect wedding venues before any issues have arisen.’
The Covid-19 outbreak created a large number of wedding cancellations and meant many events being hugely restricted.
We were able to advise those getting married and the venues due to host the weddings what their legal rights and obligations were in light of the restrictions caused by the pandemic.
Pranav was asked for his professional advice about What Rights Couples Have If They Need To Change Or Cancel A Wedding by the MoneySavingExpert website which is founded by personal finance guru Martin Lewis.

What is mediation?
Mediation is a process for resolving disputes where an intermediary helps conflicting parties have a dialogue to jointly resolve their concerns.
Mediators must be totally impartial which means they will facilitate the mediation in a neutral and impartial manner. A mediator is not an adjudicator and neither party will be forced into an agreement. The process is entirely confidential and so is the outcome. The outcome can be drawn up as a legal document or remain an informal document.
