Q. I'm interested in your Wedding Packs, what happens now?

Once you have decided you'd like to know more, I'll organise a mutually convenient time to come and see you to go through everything and answer any questions you might have. There is absolutely NO obligation and NO pressure, I'll also bring some samples along for you to look at.

Q. What do you go through when we meet?

I'll go through my Wedding Packs with you, discuss any individual needs you might have and show you the samples I'll bring along. I'll also make suggestions and give ideas for your Photography on your Big day.

Q. If we decide to book you what happens next?

After our meeting I leave the date of your Wedding provisionally booked for 1 week whilst you have a think about it. During this time I won't hassle you or contact you at all, as I said before there is NO pressure and NO obligation whatsoever. If you decide to go ahead and book with me you simply fill in the Terms of Business (I leave this with you when we meet) and pay your deposit.

Q. How much is the deposit?

A minimum non-returnable deposit of £150 is payable upon booking.

Q. What are the terms of business?

The terms of business are...

  • A non-returnable deposit of £150 payable upon booking.
  • Booking form to be completed and signed by both Bride & Groom to be.
  • Payments as agreed in the booking terms must be paid on time and in full. In the event of a late or missed payment the entire outstanding balance will become due with immediate effect.
  • All images remain the property of the photographer. If you purchase digital files (Jpegs) within a Wedding pack or separately, they will be high resolution Jpegs complete with a signed copyright licence. (Cropping may occur with some Jpeg images when resizing is attempted by the client, a service is offered to complete this for you at a standard charge if required)
  • Basic image editing is included in the price, the photographer will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching as certain materials may produce unique colours that it's not possible to match. Further editing is available on request and may incur an additional charge.
  • Wedding coverage will be as agreed in the pre Wedding meeting, however this will be dependant on :
  • Availability and co-operation of the person(s) involved
  • Bride & Groom or other members of the Wedding party being on time
  • Time allowed should be sufficient to capture group & romantic images, if there is not enough time allowed the photographer cannot be held responsible for missed images
  • Restrictions placed on the photographer by Church, Registry office or licensed marriage venue officials
  • Inclement weather will require adjustments to the schedule which will be done with the client, and the best effort will be made to cover the Wedding within the allotted timescales.
  • In the event of any unforseen circumstances coverage will be as the photographers professional expertise determines
  • Images taken may be displayed by Peter in his studio, website, advertising, exhibitions and portfolio if requested
  • Your selections of pictures for the wedding albums should be made within 6 months of receiving your images, if exceeded this will result in any price increases by the lab being borne by yourselves.
  • It may be necessary on occasion for the photographer to be replaced by another owing to exceptional circumstances (e.g. ill health)
  • Please allow up to 12 weeks for delivery of images after your wedding. Every effort will be made to deliver sooner, but during particularly busy times of the year this may not be possible.

Q. What happens now we've paid the deposit?

I will send you a booking receipt once any funds have cleared. I then contact you 4 - 6 weeks before your Wedding to organise your free Engagement shoot and our Wedding planning meeting.

Q. If I think of things I forgot to ask what should I do?

You are always welcome to contact me at any time, planning a Wedding gives you lots to think about and it's easy to forget things here and there!


^ TOP


Q. What happens at the Engagement shoot?

The Engagement shoot is a great time for us all to visit the Venue (or place of ceremony) and get to know each other a little better. It's also great practise in front of the Camera! I'll be looking with you at the best places for photo's and where the best light is (we'll try to get there at the same time of day your Wedding is booked). We will take plenty of pictures of the two of you and discuss exactly what you'd like on the day. This all helps with planning your photography.

Q. Do we have to do the Engagement shoot?

No, it is not compulsory!


^ TOP


Q. What happens with the pictures you take at the Engagement shoot?

These pictures will be put into the private gallery that will become your Wedding gallery. Here you can view your pictures and buy any that you like. I do have a number of super ideas that some of these images can be used for at your Wedding!

Q. Do you get a free print with the Engagement shoot?

No, prints are charged for at the normal rate. There are NO price increases for Wedding photography, all prints prices remain the same. (Please click here for print prices)

Q. What happens at the planning meeting?

I take a lot of pictures to minimise "blinkies" (people with closed eyes in group shots) and to capture the feel of your day. If I'm not taking formal photo's I'll be taking informal and reportage style photo's, so you end up with quite a few!

I'll come to see you both and ask if there are any extra pictures you'd like taken. I then leave you to enjoy the rest of your evening!
