Western Australia Wedding Organizer Closes, Leaving Many Bali Weddings in Doubt
The collapse of a Western Australian Wedding Organizer has left a number of matrimonially-intended stranded at the altar. Bali D’Luxe, owned and operated by Australian Catherine Williams, has taken steps to voluntarily wind up its wedding planner business leaving at least nine Australian couples out-of-pocket some AU$105,000.
The West Australian detailed how Western Australian couple Michael Simmons and Marina Attwater arrived in Bali last week after paying AU$20,000 to Bali D’Luxe to find no payments had been made to Bali suppliers, leaving them to pay twice for venues and services.
Amy-Mae Perry and Jack Smith may have to cancel their November 8, 2014 wedding in Bali after the AU$6,300 they paid to Williams has vanished. Another couple, Matt Horsley and Susan Henderson, were married in Bali on September 2, 2014 with arrangements by Bali D’Luxe but are unable to get their promised wedding certificate.
Suppliers, who apparently have not been paid, are withholding wedding photos and a video of the couple’s ceremony.
