HOTEL KEPT WEDDING MONEY

My son Niall Emslie booked his wedding at the Carmelite in Aberdeen for the 4th of Aug. Due to a change is circumstances- Mainly myself being terminally ill and the societal side-effects of this Corona virus. They wanted to cancel the wedding and get married quickly in the registry office

The bride, Sharon, as from Monday will possibly have to stay at home to look after 3 children. Niall is self-employed in construction, so he gets nothing when the building sites close.

I have now been informed the Carmelite is now sold (research to Concordia Hospitality a very large company) and they will not be refunded.  The reply from the Carmelite was – they should have read the papers!

 Leonard Curtis Business Rescue - Recovery who are the administrators should have informed the ‘little people their deposits and cash were not safe. At no time were they informed about change of hands. 

 

I do not have the luxury of a postponed wedding as I am terminally ill (medical notes can be provided) and they need their money refunded to survive. The Carmelite have been no help whatsoever and they have now lost the 1700 deposit. Even though a payment was taken two days prior to the hotel going into administration.

I write his as the grooms mum. I don’t haven’t the luxury of waiting till next year. With an inoperable aneurysm my time is limited. Dying doesn’t frighten me, my only wish is to know that Niall and Sharon are married. Niall has worked on these past two weeks with a shattered finger against medical advise to pay for this wedding. These kids have done nothing wrong but have been emotionally and financially destroyed. 

I know it is a trying time for all. If we could raise the money the LOST. They could get married and still have a little financial backup for the children.

Thank you Jan Emslie.
