…and the bride recruited her guests at the airports
So they have baptized the guests of Susana the odyssey that supposed to arrive at their wedding in this English town with wedding photo booth hire sydney. A link ‘boycotted’ by the strike of air traffic controllers of the past Bridge of the Constitution. With the godmother wandering for five days in Barajas, the family of the bride undertaking a rally towards Faro (Portugal) and friends renting several cars to get to Porto because from Spain it was impossible to fly. And with the couple, whose claims are being handled by the law firm Cremades & Calvo Sotelo, delaying the event because only they arrived on time.
The couple lives in Madrid, but met in Chichester, a town in southern England where they stayed for four years. It was an illusion that it was the setting for their link. And there they all went with their best clothes …But traveling was not going to be so easy.
“The nonsense started a week earlier,” says Amaya, a friend of the bride, and one of the people who set out on the adventure to see her say yes, I want to. “They were going to go beforehand to get everything ready, but Gatwick airport (London) closed on Monday, November 29 by snow, and they were diverted to Paris. On Wednesday, four days before the wedding, the bride remained seated on French soil with Her dress in her arms, “says Amaya.
Meanwhile, the mother of the groom and his brother had to fly from Venezuela. And the meteorology also conspired against them: the heavy rains that lashed the country those days prevented them from catching their flight in time and when they finally arrived in Madrid on Wednesday 1, they found that they could not link with England because of the snow. So there was the godmother, day at the airport and at night, in a hotel, waiting for the green pilot to exit.
The light went on Friday morning in the morning, but for such a short space of time that it hardly allowed them to warm up engines: Gatwick opened its tracks just as air traffic controllers shut down Spain to and fro. “We could not believe our friends and the family of the bride had to fly at 17.30, so we went to Barajas about 15.00 and we checked in and everything, then they told us that the flight was delayed an hour and a half, and when We were waiting, we saw on the internet that the drivers had not gone to work . ” It can not be true, they thought, they had prepared to fight against the elements, not against the workers. The next information they received was that their flight had been canceled. The ordeal was beginning.
“No one told us anything, there were tremendous queues to make claims and no one was able to tell us what was going to happen,” said Amaya. So they set up a crisis cabinet – “she is our lifelong friend and we had to be at her wedding” – and they chose to fly Sunday from Oporto, for a payment of 100 euros. Meanwhile, as they were left alone in England, the bride and groom convinced the City Council to delay the link until the following Monday.
At this point the guests were divided. The friends rented two cars and on Saturday at noon departed for Porto. They could not fly until Sunday, but news of cancellations in Portugal was already coming out and they were afraid of losing that plane too. ” They were diverting to Portugal the flights that had to arrive to Spain from South America , and of course, there was no space for take-offs.” The Portuguese had to cover those days with airport charges, “says Amaya . The bride’s family, on the other hand, chose to leave from Faro and the godmother and the Venezuelan sector stayed in Barajas waiting for a way.
“We all tried to find solutions, but there were people who could not go: those who did not have the bridge and had to work on Monday, those who had children and could not complicate more … In the end, about 20 were without a wedding, ” Amaya. Among them, Susana’s maid of honor.
After a 53-hour journey, the guests finally arrived at the banquet. “We had to rent two cars, drive 500 kilometers, make a night in Porto, leave the cars there , go to the wedding, pick them up and drive to Madrid, but it could be done, with all shattered but happy,” Amaya concludes proudly. . Susana and her husband will celebrate an anniversary marked by one of the wildest contentiousness in the history of Spain.
