Hannah and Richard are a fabulous couple. They were delivered a massive blow just 8 weeks out from their wedding. The venue they originally booked, The Willows closed. I was in Thailand at the time and received the news from a friend. I immediately contacted them to see if they knew? Of course, they had not been told. Only a few weeks prior, The Willows asked them to pay the final instalment at a reduced rate. In the end they lost a lot of money, but they gained love, guidance and stronger
