All bookings for weddings and events are subject to the following terms and conditions

Wedding Photography Terms and Conditions

Prices and bookings
Wedding bookings are confirmed only when a payment of £50 has been made to Carruthers and Hobbs Ltd and subsequently cleared by a bank. No date can be guaranteed until such a booking fee has been paid. Bookings are made on a ‘first come first served’ basis. The £50 booking fee will be deducted from the total price. No refund of the booking fee due to cancellation of the wedding, or change to the wedding date, can be offered due to the possible loss of business. We will however attempt to transfer the booking to another date providing that date is not already booked and is within 12 months of the original booking.

Insurance
We hold full public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance in line with best professional practice. If two photographers have been requested we will endeavour to supply two photographers on the day, but in case of accident, mishap or illness it may be that only one photographer attends. In this case a refund for the second photographer will be made.

Making a payment
Full payment must be made 28 days before the wedding day. Failure to pay the balance before the wedding day may result in the non-attendance of the photographers at the wedding.

Travel costs where applicable
There is no charge for travel to weddings and/or receptions in Essex. Travel to Hertfordshire, Kent, Surrey, Suffolk, Middlesex or Norfolk is charged at £25; London, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Bedfordshire or Sussex is charged at £50. Other locations quoted on request.

Wedding photography times
Before your wedding day we will agree with you a start time and a departure time for both photographers on your wedding day depending on where you wish us to take photographs as indicated on the booking form. Changes in you plans which require us to stay for an additional time will be charged as quoted at the time of booking. Therefore the locations and times must be agreed with the photographer at the time your booking is made.

Wedding photography services
Full co-operation and assistance must be offered to the photographers in the execution of their professional duties on the wedding day. The poses, locations, subjects and number of photographs taken will be at the discretion of the photographer on the day and will be deemed correct. Every effort will be made to record all photographs requested prior to the wedding but in the event of non co-operation, or non availability of any person or location, the photographers will not be held responsible. The photographers want to take the pictures you request on the day, and will aim to take photos of as many guests as possible. However it is your responsibility to see that those guests you specifically want photographed are presented to the photographers. Please make sure you make your wishes known and identify those people to the photographers. In the highly unlikely event of total photographic failure, a full refund of any money paid will be made. No other liability is accepted. In the unlikely event of disputes, misbehaviour of guests or threats made against the photographers in the execution of their professional duties, Carruthers and Hobbs Photography reserve the right to withdraw the photographers from the venue for a period of one hour to enable the wedding party to make acceptable arrangements to continue with the wedding photography coverage. In such an event the number of final photographs may be reduced. Where the weather restricts or curtails planned events, or access to planned locations, the photographers will make every effort to produce professional photographs in a more suitable location on the wedding day.

Cancellations
In the unlikely event of cancellation of the wedding: Cancellations made 28 days or more before the wedding day, money paid will be refunded (see following exclusions) and any outstanding balance will be cancelled, however this does not include the booking fee, and travel expenses (if applicable). If the cancellation takes place less than 28 days before the wedding day the booking fee and the balance (if already paid) will not be refundable.
