The Twitterverse Provides a Happily Ever After for One UK Couple
A woman’s wedding day is often dubbed the most memorable day of her life. So, what happens when six weeks from the big day she finds out her chosen venue has shut down and taken her $7,000 deposit with it? If you are Lauren Lane of the UK, you take to twitter.
Lauren Lane and Daniel Welch were due to tie the knot in February when, just six weeks before the date, they found out they had been left high and dry with no location for their wedding and no refund on their deposit. In a desperate attempt to recoup any of her losses she tweeted, “Help needed with aspects of our wedding after venue goes bust with 6 weeks 2 go & with our £4.5k!”
Thanks, in large part, to retweets from UK television host Davina McCall and Australian pop singer Dannii Minogue, Lauren’s tweet reached almost two million twitter followers, sending the Twitterverse into a generous frenzy of donations totaling to approximately £10,000.
Lauren and Daniel happily celebrated with friends and family at their “dream wedding” on February 25th. The couple expressed their disbelief in the power of Twitter stating that the overwhelming response to her Twitter plea was “amazing.” On Tuesday, the couple shared a video from their big day and they posted it, where else, but on Twitter.
