Hundreds of Adelaide couples could be left with nowhere to get married after reports emerged of the collapse of a major hotel operator.

‘Entertainment Venues Australia’ is the troubled business, which is responsible for the operation of the Royal Terrace Hotel in Kent Town, the Glenelg Pier Hotel and Links Lady Bay Hotel in Normanville.

The Advertiser reported the business had “gone bust” and had no official word on whether booked weddings would be honoured at the venues.

It said a bride-to-be had been in contact with the paper, worrying about the $7000 deposit put down at the Glenelg Pier for her October 26 wedding.

Many suppliers are saying Entertainment Venues Australia owes them thousands of dollars.

One Adelaide business told The Advertiser it was owed more than $20,000.

Some Adelaide businesses have started trying to help out fellow South Australians left out of pocket.


The Festival Function Centre in Findon has offered a discounted rate for any couples who have been affected, while Mawson Lakes Hotel and Adelaide Pop-Up Weddings have offered their support.
