In one of the greatest episodes of savages recorded, a bride dumped her supposed groom on morning of their wedding after he lied about unpaid venue bills, then she goes on to have the wedding and honeymoon without him
Upon discovery that her dream day was to be ruined, as few moments before the guests arrival, the groom to be informed her that he didn’t pay for the venue, the beautiful young lady identified as Harriet Butler immediately cried and screamed, “The wedding is off!”.
Her family, who broke the news to her thought it was a joke but she was serious.
In a rare move, she stepped out for her wedding dressed in her beautiful £900 gown to the cheers of her family.
As there was no wedding venue, since her groom didn’t pay for it as he claimed, Harriet decided to throw a party anyway in the nearby house where the couple had planned to spend their honeymoon.
According to the 32 year old lady;
“Because everyone was here I just thought we should make a day of it.
“I wasn’t going to let this be a horrible day so I put on my wedding dress, the bridesmaids put on their outfits, everyone else dressed up and the photographer came round too.”
“It’s not just about the money, It was also such a kick in the face that he didn’t talk to me about it.”
She was sure to avoid calls from her former fiance Kevin Rogers, but sipped gin and tonics with her friends and posed for photographs in a dinghy lent to them by the local mayor in Bude, Cornwall.
It was gathered that when initial payments to the hotel were missed, Kevin reassured his bride-to-be that it was all a misunderstanding only for Harriet to discover the bill had not been paid in full only a few hours before their ceremony was due to start.
Last night, 41-year-old Kevin, who had run into business troubles, said he did not tell Harriet to avoid worrying her and was convinced he could sort out things in time.
He added: “Now I have lost everything. It has broken my heart.”
Meanwhile, Harriet and Kevin had been due to tie the knot at the boutique An Mor Hotel. They had met in 2015 and Harriet soon became pregnant with Harper, now two. She also has a daughter, Imogen, six, from a previous relationship.
