Wedding Contract, Terms & Conditions
It is mutually agreed that the booking form together with the following terms and conditions form the entire agreement (“Agreement”) between LottieDesigns and you for the provision of wedding photography services (“Services”). No amendments to this Agreement shall be effective unless accepted by LottieDesigns in writing.
BOOKING FEE: A booking fee of £200.00 is required at the time of booking. Dates are reserved only when this booking fee is paid. If you change your mind about using LottieDesigns within 14 days of the date LottieDesigns receives your payment, you will be entitled to a full refund, provided you notify LottieDesigns in writing or by email. If you decide to email then please follow this up with a telephone call to ensure your email has been received safely. After that date no refunds will be given (unless through the default of LottieDesigns) and the Cancellation provisions set out below will apply instead.
BALANCE PAYMENT: The balance payment is to be received by LottieDesigns no less than 30 days prior to the date of the wedding. If you choose to order additional album photographs, prints & frames after the wedding then payment must be made at the time of ordering.
CREATIVE LICENCE: LottieDesigns shall be granted creative and artistic licence in relation to the choice of locations and poses used. You may also send LottieDesigns a list of photographs you would like to be taken in advance of the wedding. We recommend you send this list to LottieDesigns no less than 2 weeks before the date of the wedding. LottieDesigns will use all reasonable endeavours to take each of the photographs requested; however, due to changes of the weather, the availability and willingness of subjects and time available, LottieDesigns cannot guarantee any specific picture nor incorporate any specific background, location or group arrangement.
COPYRIGHT: LottieDesigns owns the copyright and all other intellectual property rights in the photographs. LottieDesigns will grant you a licence to make copies of the photographs for your own purposes. Please note this licence does not allow you to sell the photographs and/ or images to any third parties, news papers or website for commercial gain.
EXCLUSIVITY: LottieDesigns shall be the sole professional (still) photographers at the venues specified. We do however positively encourage family, friends, and other guests to take photographs throughout the day.
FORCE MAJEURE: In the unlikely event of total photographic failure, death, injury, sickness or any other event beyond Lottie Designs’ reasonable control, LottieDesigns total liability shall be limited to a full refund of all monies paid. Your statutory rights are not affected.
INSURANCE: LottieDesigns has full Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance.
CANCELLATION: After a period of 14 days from the date of signing the contract, as compensation for loss of income for LottieDesigns the following charges apply as a percentage of the total fee due.
60 days or less before the wedding – 100%
61-90 days before the wedding – 75%
91-120 days before the wedding – 50%.
Should the cancelled wedding turn out to be a postponement, then, subject to availability, all money paid may be applied to the new wedding. In this case, the total fees chargeable shall be the fee which applies at that time. In the event of LottieDesigns taking another wedding booking for your cancelled or postponed date a full unconditional refund of your deposit and monies paid shall be made.
COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE: Please address any complaints to LottieDesigns either by E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07974 086362. LottieDesigns aims to respond to complaints as soon as is reasonably possible but in any event will aim to so within 5 working days of receipt of the complaint.
DATA PROTECTION: LottieDesigns will store your name and wedding details on a private internal database. These details will only be used for the purposes of providing the Services to you. Your details will not be made available to companies or individuals outside of LottieDesigns.
Photographs from your wedding day will also be included on the blog, and potentially be used in marketing. If you do not wish your photographs to be uploaded onto this website, or, if you require it to be a Private Gallery, then please notify LottieDesigns.
