    Nigel did have some crazy ideas, but working without any sort of paperwork or contracts is a bit beyond that

    It's not just something for you, it's for your clients peace of mind as well. If you can't be bothered to do a two minute admin job then what else do you skip on?

    Okaaaay....I'm reading that the vaccine is not available to the under 50's (me....just....plus MOST of the guests at the average wedding)

    The rest of us will be able to live as normal eventually.

    Question...who do I now sue for the decimation of my business this year?

    Here's a joke for you:

    Knock knock!

    Who's there?

    The CMA!

    Whatcha want?

    I demand that you let anyone into this house.

    Why?

    Because we dictate that should be the case.

    Wanna bet?

    Yes. Yes we do.

    Not gonna happen.

    Oh...well...Ok...well we've decided that you don't need to let everyone into your house.

    You feeling dizzy? You just 180'd so fast after your bluff was called that you must be feeling rather nauseous about now.

    I'm just glad that we came to an agreement.

    Good for you. Now sod off.

    Everyone who followed the CMA's guidance is now feeling more than a little bit sick... Even Stanford Gould don't get off scot free because they had a guest blog from a photographer who actually advised businesses to factor overheads into their calculations - and have now been very vocal in condemning the CMA for allowing it!

    This whole situation is getting crazier by the day.

    I have been amazed at the wedding industry and how many suppliers have handed back full deposits.

    Equally, I've been amazed how few people have properly read the guidance from the CMA in full and taken time to understand the spirit and nuance of it. Instead, many have taken single sentences solus from the guidance and based their decisions on that.

    Plus, as far as I can see, nothing has yet been tested at court.

    I've also been very disappointed with Stanford Gould - they claim to support the wedding industry, but I've found both their contracts and guidance hasn't sat on the side of the wedding industry very well. I've not see what benefit they have brought the industry at all.

    See the chat from earlier in the week.

    Me retaining the booking fees isn't an underhanded way to cash in, it's to protect the business, ensure fairness for all current and future clients AND enforce a bit of responsability on clients.

    If everyone is just willy nilly letting them move with no consequences even if they're date is well into next year then you're ballsing up your 2021 and 2022 in one fell swoop.

    Apart from that, and it's not the case for all of them of course but there are people out there ripping the arse. A pal was told by a client "no, the insurance excess is too much for us if we claim through it so just give us our money back."!
