Ecclesiastical to Cease Selling Wedding Insurance

Wedding insurance provider Ecclesiastical has announced today (10th August 2012) that it will cease sales of its wedding insurance product from the end of this month.

The decision comes after a strategic review and the insurer's plans for a stronger focus on its core business areas.

Ecclesiastical have said that they will honour any policies purchased before 31st August 2012 and that the product will still be available to buy until that date.

Ecclesiastical has been providing wedding insurance in the UK for over ten years and in that time has helped protect thousands of wedding ceremonies and receptions across the country. The insurer offered the first mix-and-match wedding product on the market, allowing customers to tailor their wedding insurance according to their individual needs. Wedding insurance specialists at Ecclesiastical have helped couples through venue bankruptcies, supplier failures, wedding dress disasters, floods and ash clouds.

Mike Mintram, SME, Schemes and Personal Lines Business Director at Ecclesiastical, said:

"As a result of a detailed review of our wedding insurance book and the products and services we offer as a business, we have made the decision to stop offering wedding insurance and focus our efforts on the core areas of our business."

"Our wedding insurance product has been very popular over the last ten years and we have certainly done our bit to get a number of marriages off to a good start. Wedding insurance should still be a top priority for anyone planning a wedding and there are many good insurance providers on the market able to offer this cover."

"Customers who have purchased a wedding insurance policy with Ecclesiastical before 31st August 2012 will not be affected by this decision and will continue to have insurance cover in place for their big day for the duration of their policy with us."
