Wedding Details & T&C's

It would be great to meet in person and talk through your wedding plans but I appreciate that’s not always possible so I have listed the main questions I’m asked at pre wedding meetings.

Which areas of the UK do you cover ?
I’m based in North Cave, centrally located between York & Hull and only an hour away from Leeds Harrogate and the coastal towns of Bridlington & Scarborough. I have photographed weddings all around the UK and I’m happy to travel anywhere in the world to photograph a wedding. If the wedding is away from Yorkshire or an international destination then travel costs may apply but can be discussed prior to making a booking.

How Long do you stay at he wedding for ?
I will photograph your wedding story from the morning preparations, until a while after your first dance. I’m never in a hurry to leave and will never set a time limit on your day. 

Are you the only Photographer ?
I have always liked to photograph weddings on my own, therefore all the photographs you see on my website are taken by me at real life weddings in real time situations. For larger weddings I may bring along my assistant.

Are you a member of any affiliations ?
I’m linked to and a member of the SWPP – Society of Wedding & Portrait photographers.

Are you insured ?
I’m fully insured with public liability insurance.

What equipment do you use ?
I ‘m a canon photographer and only use canon bodies. I always have three sets of equipment at any wedding with spare memory cards and batteries, chargers (and even a spare shirt, tie, first aid box and a sewing kit !!)

Which Albums do you use ?
I travel the country visiting photography shows and exhibitions, keeping up to date with the latest albums and products.I currently use award winning albums Loxley Colour.

Do you take Group photography ?
Formal group photography is very important at a wedding…… long as its kept to a minimum, too many groups  can take up such a  large portion of the day. This is something we would discuss at your pre wedding consultations

How long do you spend taking the Bride and Groom Photography 
Except for the actual act of getting married, spending time with your friends and family is what a wedding day is all about.Although the bride & groom Photographs are the iconic, creative images you will hang on your wall, with a little direction 
Amazing results can be achieved in a short amount of time.

With so many photographers in the area why should we choose you ?
I like to think my images speak for themselves and my reputation in the local area does too. I genuinely enjoy myself  at a wedding. Wedding photography is the most challenging aspect of being a full time photographer. I think that’s the reason I love it !! I like the drive and dedication and constant learning required to produce fantastic images, whilst offering couples a relaxing hassle free photography experience.

How do I book you 
To secure your wedding date. I require a £200 deposit. The booking is not confirmed until the non refundable deposit is paid. The remaining balance is then due Two weeks prior to the wedding date. On paying the deposit you are also agreeing to the terms and conditions of my services a PDF copy will be sent out on request.

Can we pay for the photography in instalments

Yes – most definitely. If you simply let me know how much you would like to pay at any time I will send across an invoice and update your details.
