Why choose Wedding Insurance
from John Lewis Finance?

If you’re planning a wedding or a reception abroad, simply choose our Overseas Wedding optional add-on when you take out your main policy with Wedding Insurance from John Lewis Finance, and we’ll help make sure your big day goes to plan.

We offer six levels of cover from £10,000 to £100,000

You could be financially protected if a supplier goes bust or fails to turn up - we could reimburse any irrecoverable deposits you've made.

Don’t lose out if the prospective wedding or civil partners, close relative or member of the wedding party falls ill, your costs could be reimbursed if it is inappropriate to continue with the ceremony and it's not due to a pre-existing medical condition.

We're thinking of the special details - your wedding cake, wedding flowers, wedding transport, wedding rings and wedding attire could all be covered for loss or damage.

Top FAQs

Yes, anything already booked or paid for will be covered from the purchase date of your policy. Please make sure you have written contracts with all suppliers.

Unfortunately not: we suggest that you take out a separate Travel Insurance policy to be fully covered for your honeymoon. Our Wedding Insurance only covers your wedding and reception.

You have up to 14 days after receiving your policy documents to change your mind and get a full refund, as long as you haven’t already made a claim and your wedding hasn’t taken place. If you’d like to change your policy and add Overseas Wedding Cover, Marquee Cover or upgrade your existing level of cover, just give us a call on 0845 078 7527.
