Terms & conditions
In the following terms & conditions “the photographer” shall mean Vicki Newman trading as Photographvie. “The client(s)” shall be those persons defined as bride and groom in the wedding booking. It is agreed that the following terms set out the total agreement made between the parties and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless agreed by both parties in writing.
A non-refundable booking fee of £100 paid via BACS as well as full acceptance of the terms and conditions as published on the photographer's website secures the time and services of the Photographer for the wedding and is nonrefundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation. The booking fee will be deducted from the cost of the client's chosen package when calculating the final balance due. Payment in full of the remaining balance paid via BACS will be due 2 weeks before the wedding day. 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.
The details of the wedding arrangements are to be agreed beforehand in writing (email is acceptable). The Client shall notify the Photographer of any changes to these details in writing. The Photographer/s cannot be held liable for delays or disruption in their delivery of the service until any changes are received, and acknowledged in writing.
The Client may cancel this contract at any time by giving written notice to The Photographer/s but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid. Cancellation less than 6 weeks before the wedding will result in the payment in full becoming due. All cancellations must be in writing.
For a booking involving a church ceremony or at certain venues, the photographer's movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge. The area from which the photographer is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer's choice and the photographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.
All images remain the property of Photographvie and copyright remains with Photographvie at all times. There will be a print release included with digital images that allows you to print the images as you like and share online - please tag Photographvie where possible. Please do not edit or use any of your photographs commercially.
The Photographer/s shall be granted artistic licence 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 variation of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.
In the unlikely event of the assigned Photographer being unable to attend your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another photographer to attend your wedding on our behalf to undertake the wedding photography to his/her best ability.
In the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation of this contract by either party or in any other circumstance the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the contract. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.
Any directions issued to clients, their guests or employees during a photographic shoot are deemed to be at said persons own risk. The photographer cannot be held responsible for any personal accidents during a photographic shoot.
Digital images will be available to view and download within 3 weeks of your wedding day. USB's and other bespoke products can take up to 6 weeks to arrive from the day of your wedding and will be hand delivered or posted by Royal Mail recorded and signed for service.
The principal photographer will be Vicki Newman, and where applicable a 2nd Photographer of her choice will be provided at no extra cost. They will be the ONLY stills Photographers allowed to attend for financial gain. (Videographers attendance by agreement.)
All image sizes are nominal. The Photographer 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 fibers. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye.
Additional retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an additional paid service.
The due performance of this contract is subject to alteration or cancellation by either party owing to any cause beyond their control.
Thanks again for booking with Photographvie and if you have any further questions please get in touch.
