T & C's

Terms and Conditions

HOW DO I WORK?


I will capture the day in a story telling and journalistic style. Any images required other than that of a
documentary nature (group shots) should be written down and provided in our pre wedding meeting –
however please remember my style is not primarily posed shots. Images supplied will range between 350
and 500 depending on the content of the day. I will create you a video/slideshow of your images to music
that you can watch (who wants to click through hundreds of photos when you can sit back and watch it on
your TV or laptop – perfect evening watch with friends and family over a bottle of wine... )
JPEG images and a photo slideshow are supplied to the couple in a wooden, engraved USB box. I create
and use custom lightroom presets for photos. 
I work on a digital basis only. I can quote for prints and photo albums if you require them, however I do work
full time on top of my photography, so my time is fairly limited, plus it can be cheaper for you to do these
online these days... however if you do wish for me to assist you post wedding just let me know.


FOOD AND DRINK
I will require a hot meal on your wedding day or a tab for a minimum of £20.00 through the day to be able
to order my own meal and soft drinks. I am happy to join your guests and sit amongst you all for dinner, but
this is not at all expected. It can be pretty tiring bouncing around all day, and by the afternoon I start to
flag... so it's nice to have a little break for an hour or so and some hot grub, do a bit of editing... no one likes a hangry
photographer


BOOKING DEPOSIT
Your wedding date is only confirmed upon receipt of deposit and will always be confirmed over email. A
deposit of £225 is required upon booking. I am always happy to meet for a coffee, so you can get to know
me, my style and understand the day ahead first

FINAL PAYMENT
The final payment of the balance should be completed no later than 3 calendar months before the
wedding date, I will speak with you at this time to organise the pre wedding meeting and photos as well


IMAGE DELIVERY TIMESCALES
A sneak peek will be posted within 48 hours of your wedding on Instagram / facebook. I will also add a
selection of images to your dropbox account to give you some teasers whilst I edit the photos. Images will
then be delivered to you within 6 weeks but at peak times this can increase to 8 weeks.


EXCLUSIVITY
I am the sole professional photographer on the day (unless a second shooter has been booked) however
friends and family are encouraged to take lots of photographs, but please ensure I can always set up in the
position I need to be in. Videographers are welcome, I often work alongside them and can recommend
some to you if you want a recommendation.
Please be aware that some churches or venues will not allow photographers at the front of the church and
the use of flash can be prohibited. Please check their policy prior to the ceremony and inform me.


LIABILITY
My liability in respect of this booking shall be limited to damages of an equal amount to the total price paid
by the customer. Neither party shall be liable for any breach of its obligations resulting for causes beyond its
reasonable control, which may include acts of god, fire, natural disaster, war and weather. Under
the Consumer Rights Act, which superseded the Supply of Goods and Services Act on 1 October 2015, your
photographs will be supplied with reasonable care and skill.


CANCELLATION
If I was to cancel this booking for reasons beyond my control (for instance- death, injury, pregnancy or
sickness) liability shall be limited to the amount of monies paid, and I will always endeavour to help you find
an alternative photographer if possible and give you as much notice as possible.
The booking deposit is non- refundable, and if within 90 days of the wedding a cancellation is made, 50% of
the final amount owed must be paid
If you wish to change the date of your booking then all money can be transferred to a new date subject to
my availability. Please be aware extra charges may occur if date is in the future.


PRE WEDDING MEETING
If you have booked the whole day package then we meet for a coffee and some pre wedding photos. This
is an ideal time for us to get to know each other. You, me and the camera can have 10 minutes of you
being yourselves, perhaps a little bit silly, and get used to having a camera in your face 
This is either done at my home location or a nearby outdoor area, or if you wish to choose a different or
sentimental location then please let me know (extra charges may occur for travel / time) Approximately 10-
20 images are sent you you via dropbox in the week following. No discount is given if these photos are not
required. A £50 charge is required if couples who choose a half day package wish to have pre wedding
photos.


POSING & GROUP SHOTS
Most peoples greatest fear is how to pose. But please don’t panic, I gently direct you if I see fit. Remember
you have booked me because you would like more informal photos. I often tell couples to hold hands,
tickle each other, pick each other up, tell rude jokes, look at each other like you really, really love them....
just be yourselves.
Group shots are also wonderful, we need them to form memories of our wedding day (plus Grandma
always wants one for her wall). However they do take a lot of time away from your guests, and drag people
away from the fun (and drinks) so please do keep these to a minimum and lets not spend more than 15
minutes on this part of your day!


MOST OF ALL ... it’s my job to run around all day capturing your wedding story. So make sure you spend your
day with the people you love, having the absolute time of your life
