Snooty Hotel Turns Away Bride

Pauline Bailey, 27, had her heart set on marrying fiance Paul Carty at five star Stoke Park Hotel in Buckinghamshire, but the bride-to-be was left stunned after staff at the plush hotel accidentally sent her an internal e-mail in which the couple were deemed unsuitable for the swanky venue.

After touring the landscaped grounds of the stunning Stoke Park – a five-star country house hotel that has featured in two Bond movies – Miss Bailey decided it was the perfect setting.

She and her fiancé Paul Carty were happy to pay £10,000 for their big day, and wrote to ask about possible dates.

Seemingly amicable discussions ensued with the venue’s wedding planner, Michele Connelly who is described on the hotels website as its ‘caring face’, then dropped a clanger that revealed her true feelings about her would-be clients.

She sent an email to her manager but also forwarded it to Miss Bailey by mistake. It read: ‘Hi Carlo, I need your advice on this wedding, 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, a law graduate, and Mr Carty former law student, now an Ministry of Defence engineer were horrified. She said. ‘Effectively she was asking her boss how she could get rid of us. We were hugely offended.

The pair have now decided to have their wedding at Parklands, a 17th century mansion on the Essex/Hertfordshire border.
