- Fiona Boswell recently shared a heartbreaking story of how she is being refused a refund for a wedding booking even though there is no groom
- Fiona's groom passed away from cancer right before the wedding was meant to take place
- She has now spent over R80k on a venue that refuses to give the money back
Fiona Boswell lost her husband Guy Boswell to cancer a short while before the two were set to have their official wedding at a venue that cost the couple a whopping £4,100 (approximately R82k).
As if losing the love of her life wasn't enough, she is now being forced to pay for an expensive wedding venue and all the trinkets that come with it despite the fact that there will no longer be a wedding.
According to Fiona, she tried calling the venue owners to explain that her husband had passed and would no longer be needing to hire the place - and they were less than understanding, a Mirror article reports.
Meanwhile, East Coast Radio reports that Fiona's friends have since gone on to start a crowdfunding campaign to help her raise money to cover the cost of the wedding since the venue refuses to offer any sympathy.
In more heartwarming Briefly News about weddings, on Saturday, a lady, who has been identified by her Twitter handle @PullMyy_Dreadzz, took to social media to share pics of her wedding day. However, the message she shared along with the images received praise from social media users.
Instead of spending all their money of a wedding ceremony, @PullMyy_Dreadzz and her hubby decided to pay for her to get an education.
"So yesterday I married my best friend. We were going to have a huge wedding but decided to do something with just us .Instead of a expensive wedding we decided to use the money to put me through school to become a RN. Why invest in a moment when we can invest in our future. #Love" she captioned the post.
