A Retainer Fee of £250 is payable to secure your date, which will be deducted from your total balance. The remaining balance is then payable 14 days before the wedding. Upon payment of the Retainer Fee, Clive Blair Photography will reserve the event date on behalf of the Client(s) and reject all other requests for event coverage on that date. Thus, if for any reason the wedding is cancelled or postponed, all monies paid are non-refundable or non-transferable to a new date. To reserve a new date a new Retainer Fee will be required at the current rate.

The Client (the one signing this booking form) may cancel this contract anytime after it has been signed by sending written notice to Clive Blair Photography. If the written notification is received more than 120 days before the date the wedding is due to take place then Clive Blair Photography will reimburse the Client any monies paid, except for the Retainer Fee.

If the written notice of cancellation is received within 120 days of the due wedding date then the amount of the price that Clive Blair Photography shall be entitled to is calculated in accordance with the table below (detailing the amount Clive Blair Photography is entitled to):
0-7 days       100%         8-14 days           95%
15-30 days       90%       31-60 days        80%
61-120 days    50%        more than 120 days     0%

While every reasonable effort will be made to produce and deliver the agreed photographs of the event, the photographer’s entire liability to the Clients for any claim arising from the photographer’s performance or agents and servants (including photographers, processing laboratories and postal and delivery agents ) is limited to a refund to the Clients of the amount paid for services. The primary photographer for the wedding will be Clive Blair. If the photographer is involved in an event rendering him unconscious, liability is limited to a full refund of monies paid. In the unlikely event of personal illness, Acts of God, or other circumstances beyond the control of the photographer, a substitute photographer of high qualifications may be sent to fulfil the obligations of the photographer herein contracted. If a substitute photographer is provided, the Client has the right to refuse to accept the substitute photographer and may instead terminate this agreement and receive a full refund of all monies paid. It should be noted that since shooting his first wedding in Aug 1987 Clive Blair has never missed an event or wedding.

All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rate and may be subject to change should the rate change.

There is no charge for travel up to 30 miles from the centre of Birmingham. Beyond this we may add an extra travelling fee.

Re-order print prices are those ruling at the time of placing the order.

Payment for re-orders is required at the time of placing the order.

Sizes quoted are approximate. We 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/digital media the exact colour of materials as seen by the human eye.

During a wedding your photographer will automatically re-take any photograph where they have seen that someone has blinked, but it is impossible to guarantee to see them all. The more people in the photograph the more difficult it is to see everyone.

The photographer will endeavour to take all the photographs agreed. However, because a wedding is an uncontrolled event, the photographer cannot guarantee delivery of any specifically requested image(s), especially if timings or events are altered without our knowledge.

If time and conditions allow, the photographer may take some candid photographs. Candid shots attempt to capture the atmosphere and spontaneity of the day, rather than achieve perfect lighting and background etc.

Not all the photographs taken will be submitted, the final selection of prints submitted will be entirely at our discretion.

Negatives/digital files are retained for a minimum of 2 years. After this time they may be made available for purchase. Once a set of high resolution digital files have been bought, either before or after the 2 year period, the responsibility to preserve the images passes to the purchaser, and the decision whether to keep a copy in our files or not will be entirely at our discretion.

The 1988 Copyright Act assigns the copyright to the photographer. It is contrary to the Act and strictly illegal to copy or allow to be copied, any photographs covered by this contract.

The photographer reserves the right to use any image produced under this contract (whether produced on photographic film or digitally) for display, promotional and any other purposes.

The prices for the Selections / album(s) orders are dependant on the selection of pictures for the album(s) being chosen no more than 6 months after the wedding date. If the final selection is late in being returned, Clive Blair Photography reserves the right to choose the final images for the album. If there is any reason to believe the final print selection will be unavoidably late, this must be discussed with Clive Blair Photography, who may be able to extend the date for the album selection to be returned.

In the event of any dispute regarding this contract, both parties agree to consult the Master Photographer’s Association to try and obtain a conciliation before taking any other action.
