The North East Derbyshire couple are furious after the Chesterfield venue canceled their wedding reception 7 months before the big day

Amanda Searle, 40, and Steven Rice, 46, of North Wingfield were originally supposed to get married in September 2020 but decided to postpone the ceremony until July this year when the pandemic first appeared in April last year.

The couple, who have been together for 10 years, have now had to postpone their wedding twice after Brampton Manor in Chesterfield canceled their reception for later that year.

Amanda said she only found out her July 3rd celebration was canceled after reaching out to the establishment last week to see if there were any arrangements.

Brampton Manor said they could no longer host their wedding reception as the venue plans to adjust its business in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and continue its “Beach Club” when they reopen this summer, which means the outside area instead, open-air dining and live music on Saturdays is used for everyone.

Amanda and Steven now had to postpone their wedding until August 2022, rearranging photographers, wedding cars and catering after the news.

“Everything is closed, no pubs are open, I contacted people and no one really responded to me,” she said.

“I was just thinking what we’re going to do and I panicked.”

Brampton Manor canceled the couple’s wedding reception seven months before their big day.

Brampton Manor apologized to the engaged couple and returned the £ 150 deposit.

Amanda added, “I was angrier and more frustrated that they left seven months before the wedding and didn’t let us know.

“If we had known before Christmas I wouldn’t have minded so much because pubs and wedding venues would have been open and I could have arranged something better.

“I’m upset and it’s very upset for both of us because we were really looking forward to it.

“With my partner out of work, it is difficult to save up for a wedding as it wouldn’t be a massive, wasteful proposition, just a registry wedding and a beautiful place.”

Brampton Manor General Manager Craig Lynch said: “Due to the impact of Covid-19, businesses have had to adapt accordingly in order to survive and reopen.

“At Brampton Manor, some of our large parking lots had to be used to ensure that families and support bladders stay safe when visiting us during the summer.

“We expect this to continue this year while the vaccine is being rolled out, and we thought it would be better to make that decision now than to let people rearrange the celebrations at the last minute, like so many couples do had to do.

“We are very sorry that this has happened to Miss Searle, like so many couples across the country.

“We hope that by the date of their wedding, more than 50 people from different households can get together for such celebrations indoors and that they can do it the way they want it to be.

“We had to make this difficult business decision so that we would not be able to reopen if the venue is privately booked for large celebrations that we cannot hold due to government restrictions.”
