The worst wedding planner of all time?

Use your own photo - Open out - 150A wedding planner at one of the UK's top luxury hotels has been disciplined for describing a couple as "not the type of people that we would want" to get married at their venue! Can you even imagine reading that??? Pauline Bailey and her fiance Paul Carty had wanted to hold their wedding at Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire. But Miss Bailey received an email from their wedding planner which was sent to her by mistake. The email was sent after the couple visited the five-star venue. After meeting with them, the wedding planner sent an email to her manager, but also copied in Miss Bailey in error - doh! An excerpt from the email read: "I know this probably doesn't sound very nice, but I am trying to put this wedding off as I don't think they are the type of people that we would want to have at Stoke Park." Miss Bailey said in an interview: "It was devastating. At the time it was pretty crushing, really. I am actually over it now. Most brides want a fantastic wedding, the perfect wedding venue and we had gone to around 15 wedding venues. We finally went to Stoke Park and we went, 'Yep, this is the venue'. We went to see it, had a 10-minute meeting with Michele herself and she seemed lovely at the time. I was quite excited about it and went round and told all the relatives, 'This is where we are getting married. Look how beautiful it is. Ten days later we had heard nothing and I decided to give her a call because I knew something was going on. She got back to me and said, 'I do apologise, I have been taking some holiday leave. I will get back to you and confirm some provisional bookings. The morning after, that was when I received the email." The couple have decided to hold their wedding next June at another venue, in spite of Stoke Park's apology and invitation for them to consider holding their wedding there.
