SOME Moray brides-to-be have been searching for a new venue for their big day after the shock closure of the Mansion House Hotel.
The unexpected shut down left many on the hunt for a new location.
One bride, who spoke to The Northern Scot, said she has been planning her wedding for over a year setting her theme around the Mansion House.
The woman, who does not wish to be named, said: "We were due to get married in October this year.
"I have literally organised everything. My invites have gone out, a lot of people are travelling up to the wedding and they have all book flights and hotels so it is all a bit stressful just now.
"It looks rustic and old fashioned and now I am going to new venues which are quite modern so I am having to adapt my theme a bit.
"We have looked at others but when I went to the Mansion House it was different from what I had viewed before, it had a kind of vintage feel to it and I loved the grounds. I just felt like it was my venue.
"Every time I think about my wedding I still think of it there and then I realise I can't think of that anymore."
The Elgin bride said she felt for other couples who had their wedding booked in the next few months.
She added: "I feel sorry for the brides that have booked over the summer because they are really struggling because it is the height of the wedding season."
The hotel was declared bankrupt last Friday and was forced to close due to an unpaid £90,000 VAT bill.
