A famous Scottish wedding venue has left couples devastated after it was announced it is to shut its doors.
The A-listed St Andrews in the Square in Glasgow will close after the charity which organises events there ran up rent arrears.
The family-run Cafe Source restaurant – which sublets part of the building and provided catering for weddings – will take over the running of the venue until next February.
It had tried to negotiate a new lease but will also be forced to shut due to the high costs.
Couples who were booked to marry at St Andrews in the Square after February 2020 will now have to tie the knot elsewhere.
A spokesperson for the restaurant said: “Cafe Source will close at St Andrews in The Square on February 2 2020 after 19 amazing years.
“Our team at Cafe Source are truly devastated.
“We would like to thanks all our loyal customers for their continued support.”
The 18th-Century former church is owned by the Glasgow Building Preservation Trust, which leased it to Saint Andrews in the Square Trust (Saints).
A spokesman said: “Due to non-payment of rent and significant accrual of debt owed by Saints to GBPT, we have had no option to terminate the lease.”
