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:

  • Illness: Wedding Insurance could cover you if you have to cancel or postpone your wedding because the prospective wedding or civil partners, close relatives or wedding party fall ill and it isn't due to a pre-existing medical condition.
  • 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.

John Lewis Wedding Insurance offers six different levels of cover with Level 1 costing just £60 for up to £10,000 of protection. Wedding Insurance is a one-off payment, making it a really simple and cost-effective way to protect your wedding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wedding Insurance Having entered the visa payment the website did not issue a completion code so I was left in a state of limbo. I had to ring customer services to find whether I had bought the insurance or not. I had done but obviously was a satisfactory experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Marrying an American in the UK brings lots of paperwork with it some of which requires that a wedding has been booked. This insurance has bought me peace of mind. Many thanks to the staff who explained things clearly and for the website which lays out everything in a clear and easy way to understand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick, easy and comprehensive policy Easily secured wedding insurance for our wedding in November 2016. Cover selections were clear and concise and the policy wording is well written. Still waiting for postal hard copies, that's my only complaint. Otherwise trusted name and brand, would recommend to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comprehensive and clear I bought this insurance to cover my daughter's wedding this year. The terms are comprehensive, covering all the risks I had assessed myself and clearly written. I had no sense of dangerous 'small print' exclusions. We are d delighted that we can now concentrate on the fun side of planning!
