This is actually an article from the BBC in which a woman was so jealous of her brother’s fiancee she called the Register Office to cancel the ceremony. However, this landed her in jail for 8 weeks. She claimed she just wanted to distress the bride, not her brother. (Oh boy.)
Not only did she go to jail the brother and his fiancee were married as scheduled. I won’t say anything else since you’re pretty good at commentary. 0211-14
This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of someone cancelling the wedding arrangements by impersonating the bride. Previous ones I read about involved a wicked mother and ex-girl friend. But my thought is that the wedding venues and venders should have had a secure system in place to catch these cancellations before taking action. For example, if the caller ID or email address of the person cancelling is different than the ones used to communicate with the vender, that would be a red flag. So,the vender should call back to the person he/she initially contracted with using the original contact information to verify the validity of the cancellation.
