wedding photography Terms & Conditions
With regard to this document the terms we, us, our and ourselves refers to David Paul Photography. The terms you, your and yourselves refers to the persons specified as Partner 1 and Partner 2 on the booking form.
The copyright Designs and Patents Acts assign the copyright of the images to us.
License, Coverage and Reproduction.
Photographs taken during the course of the event will be at our discretion although every effort will be made to comply with your requirements. We shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. Our judgement regarding these matters shall be deemed correct. We shall endeavour to photograph all individuals as requested but we accept no responsibility for leaving someone out. For a booking involving a church ceremony or at certain venues our movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge. The position from which we cover the ceremony may not be our choice and therefore we cannot accept responsibility for an obstructed view. Due to a variety of lighting conditions and the limitations of digital sensors, some colours may alter throughout a set of photographs. Although all equipment is checked regularly and reasonable steps are taken to ensure backup equipment is available, we will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure.
All goods and services specified on the booking form are supplied at the prices ruling on the date of booking. All goods and services not specified on the booking form are supplied at the prices ruling at the time of receipt of the order.
The non-refundable booking fee is to the save the wedding date for you so no other person books us. If our contract is cancelled, we would lose the opportunity to deliver our services on the specified date and thus get paid the full price. Our booking fee represents 20% of the total cost of a typical wedding. This percentage seems to us to be a reasonable estimate of our actual loss if you were to cancel before the final six month period.
A booking fee will confirm your reservation, as well as full acceptance of the terms and conditions as published on our website. The booking fee will be deducted from the cost of your chosen package (as detailed on the booking form) when calculating the final balance due. Payment in full of the final balance will be due on the first day of the third month prior to the wedding date. Payment for the pre-wedding shoot (PWS) will be due one calendar month before the agreed date of the PWS. Additional goods ordered must be paid for in full at the time of ordering. Titles to all goods remains with us until paid for in full.
If David or Claire are unable to attend on the wedding date due to unforeseen circumstances or any cause beyond their reasonable control (e.g. sudden illness, injury, victim of crime, flooding etc.) then the wedding will be photographed by the unaffected partner alone. If both David and Claire are unable to attend, every effort will be made to send a trained replacement photographer as cover. In the event of cancellation by ourselves, or in the very unlikely event of total photographic failure, liability shall be limited to a full refund of any fees paid.
We retain copyright over all our photographs and all computer files remain our property. We will supply you with a copy of our professionally edited photographs (from your wedding day) for your own non-commercial purposes. All images supplied will be non-watermarked and high resolution.
If your wedding needs to be rescheduled for any reason, and if indeed we are available on the new date, the remaining balance must be paid in full prior to the transfer.
Cancellation can only be done via letter or email. If you cancel the booking up to six months before the specified wedding date on the booking form, you shall forfeit the booking fee. If you cancel the booking within the final six months prior to the specified wedding date on the booking form, the full balance minus the booking fee becomes due immediately and must be paid within seven working days.
In the event of a product being no longer available, such as an album, a suitable alternative of similar quality will be offered. Our choice of alternative will be deemed correct and acceptable.
Archive & Six Month Rule.
We will store the wedding photographs for a maximum of six months from the date of your wedding. It is therefore imperative that you download the wedding photographs ASAP once you have received the link and subsequently backup. If your package includes an album, you must also order it within this six month period else the product is forfeit. If you require access to the photographs after the six month period, then a £100 archive fee is payable to retrieve the images, if indeed they are still available.
On The Day.
We are the only authorised and official photographers for your wedding day. The earliest we begin work on any wedding day is two hours before the ceremony and the latest shall be 9.00pm. Half day cover ends at the start of the wedding breakfast. Two hot meals must be provided for us at the same time as the wedding breakfast if evening cover is booked.
We are based in Wrexham and charge £0.35 per mile travel costs for the roundtrip.
Optional Pre-Wedding Shoot with Guest Book.
The pre-wedding shoot (PWS) must take place within ten miles of Wrexham. It is your responsibility to select the required number of photographs for the guest book and notify us in good time (at least two months before the wedding date). If your selection is not received, we will be unable to organise the manufacture of the guest book and the product will be forfeit. We accept no responsibility whatsoever for damage caused to/by the guest book during the wedding day. The guest book is supplied “as is” and all use is at your own risk.
Accidental Damage & Personal Injury.
Although we strive to make each directed photoshoot as safe as possible, we cannot be held responsible for any accidental damage or personal injuries. It is understood that the client undertakes each photoshoot at their own risk.
All wedding albums are delivered direct from the manufacturer free of charge via courier.
