A BRIDE had her dream wedding saved by hardworking staff at the King’s Hotel after her ideal venue was covered in scaffolding.

Leanne and Andrew Shipley, of Ermine Close, Grantham, wanted to marry at the Guildhall, in St Peter’s Hill, Grantham, but just two weeks before they were informed it would have scaffolding for their big day.

Leanne said: “I was mortified. I came close to cancelling it because I never thought I would find anywhere else in two weeks.”

Leanne got a full refund and set about finding somewhere else. It was then that she found out the King’s Hotel was due to re-open that week.

She said: “Kevin from the hotel rang back to say they were opening that Monday and would do whatever they can to make it special. “They were just brilliant. They saved the day. Everything was just how I wanted it.”
