Wedding Photography Cancellation due to Coronavirus – My Policy!

My policy on wedding photography cancellation due to the Coronavirus Pandemic is quite simple! You will not loose your deposit if you have to cancel due to the Coronavirus situation.

Change of Date

Wedding photography booking with me, with deposit paid and you have to change the date? If I am available to photograph your wedding on the new date, your deposit will transfer to the new date. Simple.

If you need to move the date of your wedding, and I am not available on your new date or if my availability to photograph your wedding is effected by my illness of any kind, including Covid 19 or related self isolation, I will attempt to find another photographer of a similar style and standard to attend on my behalf. If you are not satisfied with this, or if I cannot find another photographer who is available, or if you would simply prefer, I will refund your deposit in full. It may be useful to liaise if you are in the process or reorganising and have options for your new date. Obviously I would prefer to be photographing your wedding on the new date myself!

Delayed Balance Payment

At the time of writing, the situation is fluid and restrictions are changing on a daily basis. If you are worried that you may have to postpone your wedding at short notice, I will waive my requirement for full payment 14 days before your wedding date. Full payment 2 days before your wedding will suffice and even then if you are forced to postpone within that two day period, I will refund the balance amount which will then become payable 14 days before the new date.

Unconfirmed Booking

If I have reserved a date for you, but you have not confirmed your booking with signed contracts and a deposit, and a couple with a deposit paid ask to move their wedding to your date, then I’m sorry but the clients with contracts and deposit paid will have priority.

If you are thinking of booking your wedding photography with me, all of the above will become applicable to you as it does to all of those with whom I have either reserved a date or hold a confirmed booking respectively.

Finally can I just wish anyone who has a 2020 wedding planned the best of luck. I hope your wedding can proceed as planned, or if you are forced to postpone that all goes well and that all your suppliers work out for your new date. and that you and your family remain safe. If you are in the process of planning, be careful with supplier contracts. I hope all suppliers are as flexible as possible. Please check out my photography pages. Follow all the advice. Keep social distancing. Keep washing your hands…

Keep safe and keep in touch!
