When a couple’s wedding venue caught fire on their big day, firefighters were able to save their cake and old photos.
According to the BBC, James Leggett and Amy Heath were prepared to marry on Saturday afternoon at We the Curious in Bristol, England, after their wedding had been postponed twice.
Leggett disclosed on Twitter that the couple had to cancel their wedding due to the fire.
The bride was getting dressed when she learned about the fire. She told the BBC that she was leaving the bridal room when her sister, the maid of honor, got a phone call from her husband saying the roof was on fire.
“He said to turn around and look out of the window,” she added. “I just stood there and froze.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple’s wedding was postponed twice. They had intended to marry in August 2020, but delayed the marriage for April 2021 before Saturday’s events, according to the BBC.
Grace Williams, a bridesmaid, posted a photo of the firefighters holding the cake.
“Thank you so much for your guys efforts yesterday,” Leggett also said. “The day was an absolute whirlwind of emotions and when we heard the pictures and the cake had been recovered, and then saw the firemen walk round the corner with it, was just indescribable. Thank you so, so much.”
According to the BBC, Donna Speed, We The Curious’ chief executive officer, claimed the firefighters “were so caring about the whole situation.”
We The Curious is still closed, according to the outlet, because its “key server systems” were damaged.
The couple hopes to get married at a later date.
