Terms & Conditions


It is agreed that the following terms set out the total agreement made between the parties and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless agreed by both parties in writing.

Booking fee
The Booking fee of 50% of total fee secures the time and services of the photographer for the wedding and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to the cancellation. Cancellation less than 14 days before the wedding will result in the payment in full. All cancellations must be in writing. Weddings that are postponed to a later date will retain the fee as long as the photographer can re-schedule for the new date and time.

Payments
Following payment of the booking fee, balance of fees due are to be paid: 50% 14 days prior to the wedding & the remaining balance due on day of wedding. No photographs will be delivered until all payments due have been paid in full. Payment for additional images is to be made when they are ordered.

Display
The photographer/s may display any photographs included in this contract in his/her studio, website, portfolio, literature, display areas, exhibitions, competitions, advertising or slide shows.

Images
All image sizes are normal. The photographer/s will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man made fibres. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye.

Retouching/Editing
Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the client as an optional extra.

Reorders
All recorders shall be treated as an extension of this contract and no responsibility for error will be accepted unless orders given are in writing.

Copyright
Any images or copies of images whether stored digitally or otherwise and any computer program including any source or object code, computer files or printed documentation relating to such images are protected by the Copyright and Design Act 1988. It is contrary to the Act to copy or allow to be copied photographically/electronically or by any other means an image created as part of this contract without the permission of the Photographer/s in writing.

Licence
The Photographer/s shall be granted artistic licence in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The photographer’s judgement regarding the locations/poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct. Due to the vagaries of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all images requested.

Force majeure and Act of God.
The due performance of this contract is subject to alteration or cancellation by either party owing to any cause beyond their control.

Attendance
In the unlikely event of the assigned photographer being unable to attend your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another photographer to attend your wedding on our behalf to undertake the wedding photography to his/her best ability.

Limitation of Liability
In the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation of this contract by either party or in any other circumstance the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the contract. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.

Cancellation
The Client may cancel this contract at any time by giving written notice to the photographer/s but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid. Cancellation less that 14 days before the wedding will result in the payment in full.

Negatives/Digital files
Negatives/Digital files remain the property of the photographers.

Prices
All prices are subject to the then current rate of V.A.T (if applicable)

Complaints
The Client should first raise any complaints with the photographer/s in writing within 21 days from the receipt of images. In the unlikely event of an unresolved complaint from the Client may request the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers to mediate but only on the basis that its decision shall be final and binding upon both parties.
