Terms and Conditions
RESERVATION: This Wedding Videography Agreement (this "Agreement") is between the Bride and Groom listed on the new client questionnaire (collectively "The Clients") and Wedding Videography Alistair Harris (WVAH) for the videographic services of Alistair Harris (the "Videographer"). The Clients must accept this agreement and pay the booking fee to WVAH to reserve the specified coverage and no reservation exists whether expressed or implied unless WVAH has confirmed receipt of both items to Clients. The booking fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. The Videographer will make no other bookings for the day of Clients' wedding. If WVAH does shoot the wedding without the balance paid in full, WVAH is not liable to keep or deliver the files from the wedding unless the balance is paid in full within fourteen (14) days of the wedding date.
ARTISTIC LICENSE: While the Videographer appreciates input and takes guidance from Clients, the Videographer retains the final decision on the style, method, and edit of delivered video. The Videographer is not responsible for subjective interpretations of videography. Likewise, the Clients understand that the colours in the delivered video represent the best interpretation by the Videographer.
HOUSE RULES: In some instances, the Videographer may be limited in their ability to provide services by the guidelines of the ceremony official or venue or reception site management (i.e. use of artificial light or radio audio recording equipment). Clients acknowledge and accept the technical results of the imposition of any such guidelines on the Videographer.
COPYRIGHTS: All copyrights and other intellectual property rights in and to the final video are and will remain the sole property of WVAH. Upon WVAH's receipt of final payment for services rendered including the purchase of a high-resolution files on DVD, or standard playable DVD-disc, WVAH agrees to grant to Clients a limited, non-transferable, personal license under the video to reproduce, display, use, and exhibit the video for personal not-for-profit purposes, in each case subject to the following additional terms and conditions. Clients may produce their own copies of the DVD for friends and family. Except as expressly provided herein, no other rights are licensed to Clients.
TRAVEL: Travel is included for all weddings taking place within England. For all other locations inside the United Kingdom where driving is feasible (determination will be up to WVAH), an additional travel fee will be quoted. Additional travel fees are also required for overseas weddings, and will be negotiated with the Clients.
PHOTOGRAPHER SUBSTITUTION: In the event that WVAH is unable to perform the wedding, WVAH will use commercially reasonable efforts to find a substitute of equal or greater qualifications. If WVAH is unable to produce a substitute videographer, the Clients may instead terminate this Agreement and receive a full refund of all monies paid, including the booking fee, and the Clients agree to release WVAH from any responsibility as outlined in this Agreement.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL WVAH BE LIABLE TO CLIENTS FOR ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR INDIRECT DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER OR NOT WVAH IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE VIDEOGRAPHER WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR NOT CAPTURING DESIRED GUESTS IF THEY ARE NOT SPECIFICALLY IDENTIFIED.
CANCELLATION & BREACH: THE RETAINER FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE UPON TERMINATION BY THE CLIENTS. UPON TERMINATION OR CANCELLATION OF THIS AGREEMENT BY EITHER PARTY FOR ANY REASON, WVAH IS FREED FROM ANY FURTHER OBLIGATION TO THE CLIENT. Further payments made by the client will be refunded within thirty (30) days of cancellation.
COMPLETION: Post processing may take WVAH up to thirty (30) days, but occasionally takes longer during peak seasons. The DVD will be delivered after post processing and editing. WVAH recommends that you make multiple copies on multiple types of media (jump drive, external hard drive, backup, etc) to ensure the longevity of your purchase.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT: This Agreement contains the entire understanding between WVAH and the Clients. It supersedes all prior agreements between the parties. Any additions or amendments to this Agreement must be made in writing, signed by all parties.
