AN unlucky bride-to-be has had her big day cancelled seven times in nine months.
Beth Deeley and Jonty Williamson, both 29, have spent a total of £3,500 on their jinxed ceremonies.

The first, six years in the planning and due to be held last April, was cancelled when the first coronavirus lockdown was announced in March last year. Covid rules then also put paid to two ceremonies rescheduled for September, one for November and one for this April.
They almost struck lucky with a date fixed for their tenth anniversary two weeks ago — until Beth’s sister said she would be unable to go. So they put it back by one day — only for that to fall foul of the latest lockdown.
Council worker Beth, of Aldridge, West Midlands, said: “We can either laugh or cry at our bad luck.
“It is disappointing and frustrating but there are far worse things going on in the world right now. It will happen for us one day.
“We were both heartbroken at the first cancellation. It got easier the more dates that got cancelled.
“Now I just find it quite funny and we know we will get there when we get there.
“Friends have joked about how jinxed we are.
“Every time we rearrange, they know there’s another lockdown coming.”
The couple hope they will finally be able to get married in October this year.
