Terms and Conditions
It is agreed that the following terms set out the total agreement made between the parties Everlasting Moments (“the Supplier”) and the Client and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless agreed by both parties in writing.
The Booking fee of £250 secures the date, time and services of the Supplier for the wedding and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation.
Cancellation less than 12 weeks before the wedding will result in payment in full having to be made forthwith to the Supplier by the Client.
All cancellations must be in writing (excluding email and fax). Weddings that are postponed to a later date will retain the fee as long as the photographer can re-schedule for the new date and time. Payments: Following payment of the £250 booking fee, the remaining balance of fees due are to be paid 28 days before the date of the wedding.
Payment for additional images/albums is to be made when they are ordered. If there is more than one client, the clients shall be jointly and severally liable for the fee.
All cheques to be made payable to Sam Dorrington.
Bank Transfer (BACS) payments can be accepted by arrangement.
The Supplier may use any images included in this contract in their studio, web site, portfolio, literature, display areas, exhibitions, competitions, advertising, slide shows or commercially.
All image sizes are nominal. The Photographer/s will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibres. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye.
Retouching: Additional retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an optional extra.
All reorders shall be treated as an extension of this contract and no responsibility for error will be accepted unless orders are given in writing. Intellectual Property Rights/Copyright: shall be owned by the Supplier. The supplier gives the client full permission to reproduce all the supplied images however they choose within personal use, as long as it is not for financial gain, in which case written consent from the supplier would have to be agreed before proceeding.
The Supplier shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The Photographers judgement regarding the locations, poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct. Due to the vagaries of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested. The Supplier grants a licence to the Client an on a non exclusive basis to reproduce the supplied images for personal use.
The Supplier shall have no liability to the Client under the contract if it is prevented from, or delayed in performing its obligations under the contract or from carrying on its business by acts, events, omissions, accidents beyond its reasonable control, including (without limitation) act of God, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, terrorism, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, relegation or direction, accident, fire, flood, storm.
