Following the closure of the Lansdowne Place Hotel in Hove, couples have had to rearrange plans for their special day.
The council say they will honour all bookings, ensure registrars are available and waive the fee for the new official notice of marriage document if the venue is changed. They will be contacting the couples concerned to advise them that they will refund their fees if they have already paid their notice fees for their new choice of venue.
Councillor Leo Littman, said:
“We have been in touch with all the couples affected by the closure of the Landsdowne Place Hotel and I’m delighted to say that for those who have chosen to keep their ceremonies in the city we will be able to honour their bookings. We will also ensure that registrars are available to attend the rearranged ceremonies and we have been able to transfer deposits paid, to us, to their new venue. “
