I take it that everyone is on the wind-up...

Yes you get a cheque for maybe 4000 but it will take forever to clear and then bounce and in th e meantime this John Ince will hastle you to pass over half if not all to the "wedding planner"...and if you give in then you will be out of pocket.

In the last year I have had emails along the same lines, once I had to tell the parties that they had double booked the Church as both were on the same day at the same time. Also been requested to do 4 "Royal" weddings, one in LA and the other in Aberdeen.

Ask for a Paypal 4 figure deposit and watch them go...

I too would give this one a very wide berth. I am not convinced at all with it.
