2. How much of a deposit do you require and when is it due?
Our deposits vary depending on the package you want to book, our deposits range from £50 to £125 but we always discuss this with you and no payment is required until you have a copy of our contract. We also offer payment plans if this helps please discus on your enquiry as we are happy to amend a contract to suit.

You will always receive two copies of our contract before you make any payments to us at all, one for you to keep and one to be signed and returned to us in pre paid envelope.

5. If my wedding venue is out of your area, do you charge a travel fee?
We dont charge any travel fees on our Silver & Gold packages, our registry office package has minimal charges if over 50 miles from Castleford.
6. Are you photographing other events on the same day as mine?
We never take more than one booking per day so you will have our full attention on your big day and we wont be rushing off elsewhere.
7. Is a second shooter available?
We are a husband & wife team so always work as two meaning you will get two professional photographers, during ceremony if permitted by the registrar you will get one of us at the front and one at the back capturing both sides throughout the vows. Also upon request we can catch both of you getting ready, where possible.
8. Do you have liability insurance?
Absolutely yes we are professionally insured and happy to provide proof upon request.
9. How many hours are included in your package?
Our packages don't really have set times, if you book full day from bridal prep to end of first dances then that's what you get. However our contracts do state first dance to take place no later than 9pm. But don't worry if things run a little late we will still be there to catch the action. If you are planning things to run later from the outset please discuss with us.
10. How will I receive my images?
All our wedding images are first sent to you to view on an online password protected gallery for you to view, on this gallery they will be watermarked and in low resolution. Every wedding will then receive all edited images in both colour & black & white on a USB which will be posted out to you. If your package includes a print, the USB will be sent at the same time.
