Why do I need Wedding Insurance?

Wedding Insurance provides financial protection in case things don’t go to plan on your big day. This can include:

  • Failure of suppliers: If a supplier goes bust or fails to turn up we could reimburse any irrecoverable deposits you've made.
  • Cancellation Cover: If you have to cancel or rearrange your wedding, you can claim for any deposits or costs that you can't get back when it's inappropriate to continue the ceremony and it isn't due to a pre-existing medical condition.
  • Bad weather: If the weather prevents you or more than 50% of your guests getting to the venue then you could be covered.
