2.       The Contract

2.1      These Terms and Conditions govern the sale and provision of Services by Paige Mary and  form the basis of the Contract between Paige Mary and You.

2.2      Nothing provided by Paige Mary prior to the Order Confirmation, including, but not limited to, sales and marketing literature, advertising, website information, price lists and other documents shall constitute a contractual offer capable of acceptance.  They shall not form part of the Contract or have any contractual force.

3.1      As required by law, Paige Mary will provide the Services with reasonable skill and care and in accordance with any written information provided by Paige Mary about the Services.

3.2      Paige Mary shall be the sole professional still photographer at the Photographic Event.

3.3      You will inform Paige Mary in writing no later than one Month before the Photographic Event Date of the location of the Photographic Event. Should the location of the Photographic Event change you will inform Paige Mary as soon as possible in writing and ensure you receive a written acknowledgement thereof from Paige Mary prior to the Photographic Event Date.

3.5      You agree that Paige Mary or any third-party subcontractor photographer have permission to approach You to request the removal of any obstructive or disruptive parties at the Photographic Event.

3.6      Paige Mary will endeavour to take the agreed minimum number of photographs. However, because a wedding or other Photographic Event is an uncontrolled event, Paige Mary cannot guarantee delivery of any specifically requested images, especially if timings or events are altered without Paige Mary’s knowledge. Due to changes in the weather and the availability and willingness of subjects, Paige Mary will do her best to honour requested photographs but cannot guarantee any specific picture nor incorporate any specific background, location or group arrangement.

3.7      During a wedding or other Photographic Event Paige Mary will automatically re-take any photograph where She has seen that a subject has blinked, but it is impossible to guarantee that photographs will not include a subject that has blinked or whose eyes are closed. 

3.8      Paige Mary 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 or digital media the exact colour of materials as seen by the human eye. Paige Mary will have no liability in this respect.

3.9      The time, location and duration of the Makeup Event, the number of people included the Makeup Event and will be as detailed in the Order Confirmation. Any additionally requested makeup requirements not included in the Order Confirmation will be at the discretion of Paige Mary and will attract an additional charge.

3.10   Where more than one person is included in a Makeup Event, they must attend the Makeup Event location and at the allocated time as detailed in the Order Confirmation. Where the Makeup Event takes longer than the agreed time detailed in the Order Confirmation due to Your actions or inactions or those of the other persons included in the Makeup Event.

3.11   You will provide, at your cost, a designated work area and a suitable set up table at the Makeup Event location.

3.12   If Paige Mary requires any information or action from You in order to provide the Services, Paige Mary will inform you of this as soon as is reasonably possible.

4.       Change of Photographic Event Date, Makeup Event Date and Cancellation

4.1      In the event that you wish to change the Photographic Event Date or the Makeup Event Date You will notify Paige Mary in writing of such change as soon as possible. Paige Mary will use reasonable endeavours to accommodate an alternative Photographic Event Date or Makeup Event Date (as the case may be) but shall not be required to move any booking for another client. Where the Event Date is changed, You may be charged an additional fee as well as a further Deposit. 

4.2      If Paige Mary is unavailable on an alternative Event Date the Contract will be treated as cancelled by You, the Contract will automatically terminate without any liability to Paige Mary and the provisions of clause 4.4 will apply. 

4.3      In addition to a cancellation of the Contract pursuant to clause 4.2 above, You may cancel this Contract at any time by giving written notice to Paige Mary.

4.4      In the event the Contract is cancelled pursuant to clause 4.2 or clause 4.3 Your Deposit will be forfeited together with any monies paid prior to the date of cancellation. Cancellation;

  1. more than three Months before the Makeup Event Date will result in 50% of the Price becoming due in full and immediately payable; 

  2. less than three Months before the relevant Event Date will result in the Price becoming due in full and immediately payable.

5.       Price, Expenses and Payment

5.1      Subject to clause 5.6 below, the Price of the Services will be that shown in the Order Confirmation.

5.2      A non-refundable Deposit of 30% in respect of a Photographic Event and 25% in respect of a Makeup Event is payable within two days of the Order Confirmation Date. A date for Your Event will not be reserved until such time as Paige Mary has received the Deposit in full and in cleared funds.

5.3      Where the location of the Photographic Event or the Makeup Event is more than fifty miles from Paige Mary’s trading address, You will provide, at Your expense, Paige Mary with reasonable overnight accommodation and Paige Mary will charge you the then HM Revenue and Customs approved mileage rate as travelling expenses to the Photographic Event. Where the Photographic Event or the Makeup Event is outside Great Britain, you will organise and pay for the airfare and any other reasonable travel expenses incurred by Paige Mary to travel to the Event location.

5.4      Where the location of a Makeup Event is more than an hour away and Paige Mary has confirmed in wiring that she does not require overnight accommodation in accordance with clause 5.3, a location fee of £50 will be payable in addition to the Price.

5.5      Where the Photographic Event is a wedding You agree to provide, at your cost, a meal to Paige Mary or any assistant or subcontractor of Paige Mary. 

5.6      If the nature of the Services is such that the Price cannot be calculated in advance, the manner in which it will be calculated will be notified to you.

5.7      Where the Event Date is changed and the parties have agreed a new Event Date, either at the request of the Client, or due to an event detailed in clause 8 below, Paige Mary reserves the right to increase the Price when the new Event Date is in the next or any subsequent calendar year following the original Event Date. 

5.8      If Paige Mary quotes a Special Price which is different to the then current Price for the particular Event, the Special Price will be valid for four weeks or, if the Special Price is part of an advertised special offer, for the period shown in the advertisement.  To secure the Special Price the Deposit must paid in cleared funds prior to the expiration of the Special Offer time period.  

5.9      Where You or any person included in a Makeup Event delay the scheduled commencement time of the Event, or  the scheduled Makeup Event exceeds the time detailed in the Order Confirmation, a late fee of £25.00 will be charged for every 15 minutes of delay and/or excess time. 

5.10   The balance of the Price will be payable in cleared funds no later than one Month prior to the Makeup Event and no later than two Months prior to Photographic Event Date. If the balance of the Price is not received by Paige Mary by the Event Date, Paige Mary is not obliged to provide the Services to You and will have no liability to You in this respect. For the avoidance of doubt, full payment of the Price will still be due and immediately payable by You.

5.11   All payments hereunder are payable in Sterling to the following bank account or such other bank account as notified to You by Paige Mary from time to time:
