Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has paid for a couple’s wedding fee following complaints that he and his film crew ruined a ceremony in Newquay.

Charlie Willis, 35, and wife Laura, 29, paid £1,300 for their intimate six-person ceremony and reception last month at Lusty Glaze beach, in what they had reportedly expected to be a completely private affair.

However, the newly-weds said they were left devastated when their nuptials were “gatecrashed” by the TV chef and his film crew as they shot his new series.

The famous chef, who is known for shows such as ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ and ‘Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares’, had been in Newquay filming his latest project – ‘Gordon Ramsay‘s Future Food Stars’.

He and his film crew had reportedly “taken over” the beach at Lusty Glaze, with the bride and groom dubbing their day “a nightmare”. However, it appears the couple had not actually booked exclusive use of the beach.

After reading the reports, the 54-year-old wrote on Twitter: “Must’ve missed the part where my crew and I ruined the wedding….. Congrats on a beautiful marriage…. if you fancy a night at @savoygrill it’s on me… I’ll try not to ruin it @MailOnline”.

Gordon and his team at production company Studio Ramsay also paid the couple their entire wedding fee of £1,300, and apologised for “the upset” the filming had caused.

A spokesperson from Lusty Glaze told The Sun that the wedding party hadn’t actually secured exclusive use of the beach, which meant Gordon and his team were allowed to carry on with their production in what was referred to as “very unusual” circumstances.

A letter was also sent to the newlyweds, apparently from his producer, Sharon Powers, which read: “Dear Mr and Mrs Willis, I am writing to apologise for the upset our filming caused you on your wedding day at Lusty Glaze beach.

“I am mortified that we affected your special day and I can assure you that it was never our intention to upset you or your guests.

“As you are aware, we have now paid for your wedding in full, which I hope goes some way towards making amends and acknowledging how sorry I am that your special day was affected, albeit unintentionally, by us.

“I do hope you can accept my apologies and I wish you well for the future.”

The new TV show – ‘Future Food Stars’ – is a brand new BBC One programme that has been dubbed by some as an “Apprentice-style show” and will consist of 12 candidates being pushed to their limits in a series of “relentless challenges inspired by Gordon’s highly successful career”.

The last entrepreneur standing will win a “life-changing reward”.

Gordon Ramsay said of the new series: “The future of our food industry has never been more exciting. I can’t wait to search across the country unearthing some of Britain’s most entrepreneurial talent.

“I’ve spent the last 21 years at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay nurturing, supporting and mentoring some of Great Britain’s greatest chefs and that’s truly why I think investing in the next generation of talented individuals is so important!”
