Gordon Ramsay, 54, has been criticized by a British couple after the filming of his new BBC show “Future Food Stars” interrupted their marriage in Newquay, Cornwall, in June.
Charlie Willis, 35, and his wife Laura, 29, hosted a ceremony for six on Lusty Glaze Beach, but told The Sun it had all turned into a “kitchen nightmare” after finding out they shared their day with a film crew.
“We had both worked so hard to save for that day and felt like extras on a game show,” Charlie told The Sun. He also said their wedding photos were spoiled by the crew’s presence.
The publication reports that the couple opted for the Lusty Glaze Beach runaway ceremonial plan, priced at $ 1,380 (£ 995).
A venue representative told Insider: “The wedding party in question hadn’t booked the entire Lusty Glaze beach, they had gone for an entry-level package, so they hadn’t taken the necessary steps. to guarantee the exclusive use of the beach. “
They added, “In very unusual circumstances, a production crew was also filming at Lusty Glaze, but the production company reimbursed the cost of renting the room to the couple as a gesture of goodwill.”
According to The Sun, Studio Ramsay paid the couple’s wedding expenses of $ 1,800 (£ 1,300) which included the ceremony and the cost of a gourmet meal for the group of six.
A letter of apology sent to the couple by a producer at Studio Ramsay was also shared by the publication, in which they said they were “mortified” that the production had affected their wedding day.
“I can assure you that it was never our intention to upset you or your guests,” the letter read. “As you know, we have now paid for your wedding in full, which I hope will help make amends and recognize how sorry I am that your special day has been affected, albeit unintentionally, by U.S.”
A representative for Ramsay told MailOnline that there was “no door blockage” that day because Studio Ramsay had reserved the beach for the shoot.
“It’s a shame that this couple are still complaining, their bill was generously covered, they happily chatted with Gordon that day, they didn’t have exclusive use of the beach and all the other beach goers have had a great time joining us. & off camera, ”they said, according to the post.
Ramsay’s new show ‘Future Food Stars’ was announced by the BBC in January and will see the ‘Kitchen Nightmares’ star scour the UK in search of the hottest food entrepreneurs and drinks.
