CONFIRMATION: A signed wedding contract and deposit are necessary to confirm the stated wedding services from Andrew Ridgway and Mark Copeland T/A www.envisionimages.co.uk

PRE-WEDDING CONSULTATION: This normally happens at the time of booking. The bride and groom will outline broadly what is required and envisionimages.co.uk will advise on planning, logistics and timings were needed. If required. The bride and groom are welcome to pop in for an additional chat closer to the time of the wedding to iron out the remaining details. In any case we will contact you by phone a few days before the wedding to ensure that there have been no last minute changes.

COOPERATION: The bride and groom and www.envisionimages.co.uk consent to cheerfully cooperate and communicate with each other to achieve the best possible result within the understanding of this contract. We recommend that the wedding photographer is provided with a helper (usually the best man or usher) who will point out key individuals to be photographed. The photographer may also require the assistance of the best man in organising family groups. The bride and groom also agree to give the photographer sufficient warning of key events at the wedding to give the photographer time to prepare e.g. Bouquet throwing, cutting the cake, speeches etc. Please note that not all guests at wedding like having their photo taken. In such cases the wedding photographer will use his discretion but cannot be held responsible for a lack of photos of these people

THE SCHEDULE : Our shooting schedule, style of working and experience are designed to achieve a mouth watering set of wedding photos for the bride and groom, accomplished with good humour and enjoyed by all concerned. Both the bride and groom and envisionimages therefore agree that punctuality and cheerful cooperation are essential to producing outstanding photographic results. In cases were the wedding does not run on time (for example, extreme lateness by the bride arriving to the church) we cannot guarantee to take our normal set of photos although in such circumstances we will do our absolute best to compensate

PAPARAZZI WEDDING GUESTS: All your guests will have digital cameras and all your guests will want to photograph the bride and groom. In the spirit of cheerful cooperation the bride and groom agree to give the photographer precedence over your guests in order to take the photographs required for the wedding services described above.

We cannot be held liable for a lack of wedding photos if the photographers work has been continually interrupted by guests taking their own photos of the bride and groom

HOUSE RULES: Note the photographer is sometimes limited by rules imposed by registrars, ministers and venue management as to what can and cannot be done. For example some ministers insist that no flash photography is allowed, and others will insist that the photographer shoot from a specific location. In such circumstances the bride and groom agree to accept the technical limitations that may be imposed on the equipment used. We advise the bride and groom to make themselves aware of the rules of the venue concerned and if necessary negotiate with the personnel concerned.
