25-year-old, Rosanna Thomas was all set for her fairytale wedding. She had her dress, her bridesmaids dresses, clothes for her kid and the perfect venue. At least she thought that. Her fiance, Gavin Hall told her that he had booked the venue, but that was a lie and even her wedding was off.
Rosanna who lives in Aberdare, Wales was jilted four days before her wedding, while she was pregnant with their daughter. She had spent ten thousand pounds (Rs 8,75,300) on the wedding already.
She found that her wedding was off when her photographer texted saying that the venue denies there is any wedding. The photographer called the venue to fix the time and other details. When Rosanna called up the venue again to clear the confusion, she was told that the money had never been paid and there was no booking.
Rosanna and Gavin met on Tinder and had a whirlwind romance. They got engaged three months after dating in December last year. She, along with her grandmother had taken a loan for the wedding and had invited guests over from different parts of England.
As per Rosanna, when her fiance, Gavin Hall found out that they were pregnant, he promised her a new house and the wedding of her dreams. He told her that he had booked the fairytale barn that costs 7000 pounds (Rs 6,12,710), but that was a lie.
Rosanna said, "I was happy. I thought it was love at first sight. He treated me well in the beginning. I thought he was the one after all my other experiences."
Rosanna confessed to Gavin about the venue mishap and he lied to her again. He even showed her a fake bank statement. She said, "He showed me a bank statement he'd faked, I didn't question it. He said the money got lost on the way to the venue but my mum watched him make the phone call to the venue and the bank and said he was way too calm."
She added, "I asked him to phone them in front of me. I found out after checking his phone later that he just called one of his own numbers and was on the phone to no one, having fake conversations. These weren't short conversations, he would laugh and joke, give his date of birth. I screamed at him to tell me the truth and he was forced to confess, there was no money and no wedding. I ended it there and then."
She added, "I was distraught. I had family from Lincoln and Norfolk travelling miles for the wedding. I would understand if I said I wanted a wedding and a house but I never did, it was all him. He could have stopped it anytime and said there's no money, no wedding and that might have made it a bit easier and I might not have a wedding dress hanging on the back of my door."
Now, a distraught Rosanna has all the dresses and the shoes up for sale.
