These terms & conditions cannot be varied in any way by the clients unless such conditions are expressly agreed by the photographer in writing.

Copyright:
The copyright Designs and Patents Acts assign the copyright of the images to the photographer.

Display:
The client(s) hereby allow(s) the photographer to display any photograph covered by this contract and to generally promote the business in advertising, brochures, magazine articles, websites, sample albums etc.

Licence, Coverage and Reproduction:
Photographs taken during the course of the event will be at the discretion of the photographer although every effort will be made to comply with the client’s requirements.
The photographer shall automatically be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The photographer's judgement regarding these matters shall be deemed correct.
The photographer shall endeavor to photograph all individuals as requested by the client(s) at some point, but no responsibility will be taken by the photographer on the occasion of leaving somebody out.
For a booking involving a church ceremony or at certain venues, the photographer's movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge. The area from which the photographer is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer's choice and the photographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.
The photographer will not be held responsible if guests with mobile phone cameras or any other photographic device get in the way of the photographer during crucial shots. However, the photographer and/or assistant will make every effort to see that this doesn’t happen.
Due to a variety of lighting conditions and the limitations of digital sensors, some colours may alter throughout a set of photographs.
Although all equipment is checked regularly and reasonable steps are taken to ensure backup equipment is available, the photographer will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure.

Prices:
All standard wedding packages and additional goods specified on the booking form are supplied at the prices ruling on the date of booking. Goods not specified on the booking form are supplied at the prices ruling at the time of receipt of the order.

Payments:
A non-refundable booking fee of £100.00 will confirm your booking, as well as full acceptance of the terms and conditions as published on the photographer's website. The booking fee will be deducted from the cost of the client's chosen package when calculating the final balance due.
Payment in full of the remaining balance will be due 4 weeks before the wedding day.
Additional goods i.e. prints that are ordered must be paid for in full at the time of ordering.
Titles to all goods remains with the photographer until paid for in full by the client(s)

Force Majeure:
The photographer will endeavor to put the client(s) in touch with another photographer in the event they are unable to attend on the wedding date due to any cause beyond their reasonable control e.g. sudden illness, injury, victim of crime, flooding etc.
In the event of cancellation by the photographer, or in the very unlikely event of total photographic failure, liability shall be limited to a full refund of any fees paid.

Ownership:
All digital negatives (RAW computer files) remain the property of the photographer. On occasion, the photographer may supply a copy of the edited digital negatives to the client(s) for their own non-commercial use.

Cancellation with more than (or equal to) 100 days to go until the wedding date, the cancellation will be the booking fee of £100.00.
Cancellation with less than 100 days to go until the wedding date, full price for the complete photographic coverage booked. Where no package has been specified on the booking form, it will be deemed that the client(s) have chosen a package to the value of £1295.00. The client(s) are hereby advised to take out an appropriate insurance policy to cover any expenses incurred in the event of cancellation.
If the client requires an alternative date and if the photographer is able to re-book the date with an equivalent booking, then the cancellation fee will be reduced to the booking fee.
