Lauren Lane and Daniel Welch hired an events company to handle their wedding. Just six weeks before the big day, the company closed its doors—but not before taking the couple’s £4500 deposit. Distraught, they reached out on Twitter. The bride-to-be tweeted this plea:
Looking for help with all aspects of our wedding after venue goes bust with 6 weeks 2go & with our £4.5k! Pls RT, RT like— Lauren Welch (Lane) (@laurenlane1984) January 6, 2012
Word spread, and people replied with offers of help and donations. In the end, they received more than £10,000 worth of donated goods and services. And the wedding? See video highlights for yourself.
