TERMS AND CONDITIONS


QUOTATIONS AND PAYMENT TERMS


Quotations are given freely without any obligation for you to use my services.


A booking fee of £100 is due on booking.  Confirmation will be sent, and it is only when this is received that you should consider your wedding photography to be booked.


Following payment of the booking fee, the balance of fees are to be paid in full, a month prior to the wedding.


The balance to be paid will be invoiced, and all monies will be paid by the date stipulated on said invoice.


The booking fee is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation.


If cancellation is made for our services within three months of the wedding, you will be liable to pay Chiyo McMillan Photography the FULL amount for the coverage booked. 

All cancellations must be in writing.


Hot food and refreshments are required on the day of the wedding.


Prices charged for any products (e.g. prints and albums) are those prevailing at the time of order in 2017.  Any products ordered in advance for 2018 could expect a potential rise in cost in line with increases from suppliers.


All prices are inclusive of VAT.


QUALITY


Chiyo McMillan Photography requires information you may have about the venue(s) in advance, and is happy to research individual venues on the Internet wherever possible.


It is a condition of booking that Chiyo McMillan Photography is the only professional photographer working at the wedding, and no other vendor is allowed to take photographs which are to be offered for sale.  If such a situation arises, Chiyo McMillan Photography reserves the right to cease photography and all monies paid will be non-refundable.


The bride and/or groom agree to set aside three minutes per requested individual or group photo after the ceremony, in order to gather people for photographs. 

If the bride, groom, or other person’s late arrival prevents all the desired images from being taken, Chiyo McMillan Photography shall not be held liable for lack of time to take the desired photographs.


Chiyo McMillan Photography shall endeavour to photograph all individuals as requested by the client, 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 minister or official in charge.  The area from which the photographer is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer’s choice, and Chiyo McMillan Photography cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.  


COPYRIGHT AND OWNERSHIP


Copyright is given to the client for all images provided on the client’s dedicated webpage/USB.


Chiyo McMillan Photography reserve the right to make reproductions of any image for marketing and advertising purposes, though will not sell any client’s photographs without their agreement.


LIMITATION OF LIABILITY


In the unlikely event of a total photographic failure, injury, or sickness beyond Chiyo McMillan Photography’s control, the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to a full refund of all monies paid.


Chiyo McMillan Photography will agree the timing details and requirements of the day with the clients.  Chiyo McMillan Photography cannot be held responsible for the wedding running late or any loss of photographic coverage as a result.
