For some reason my original question has been deleted which is annoying.
Ok. I will have to explain this again.
Back in October 2015 I booked a wedding venue( Beaconside House).
The venue is a house and on their website they state you can hire the whole estate exclusively with no restrictions for the whole weekend.
So I booked the venue thinking there were no restrictions in place. As for the type of wedding I'm having, this is what I needed.
I paid a £2.5k deposit back in October, the full amount was due at the end of March.
But upon doing a site visit to the venue, it came to light that there were actually restrictions in place, which was the amount of people you could have onsite at anyone time. Which was 200. This had not been mentioned before. I was also then informed I had to include my staff hired for the weekend within this number.
I have a famous band coming to play as well, and he then said if I wanted the band to play outside I would have to apply for a concert license, and then subsequently told I couldn't do this, as it might end up in the owner having his wedding license revoked. (because of previous complaints he has had due to noise problems, which we were obviously unaware of).
So I was then put in the position where I was going to have to un-invite guests invited to the evening reception. As well as others guests that were invited to the whole affair. And because I couldn't have the band play outside, I was going to have to hire another Marquee for the band to play in.
It all became very stressful, and if the owner had told me there were actually restrictions at the venue before the time of booking, I would certainly NOT have booked his venue.
It has become so problematic that I had to cancel my booking with him and find another venue.
From this, you can see what Alex Watts has advised me, and that she thinks I am entitled to a refund, as he did confirm the booking stating ' There are no restrictions'.
Does that explain the situation?
