Cancellation policy: 

As per Leslie Choucard Photography & Videography contract terms:


"CANCELLATION: Should the client cancel, as compensation for loss of income, the following charges apply as a percentage of the total fee due. (Number of days before the wedding) 365 days or less - 100%. More than 365 days - 50%. Should the cancelled wedding turn out to be a postponement, then, subject to availability, all money paid may be applied to the new wedding. In this case, the total fees chargeable shall be the fee which applies at that time. In the event of us taking another wedding booking for your cancelled or postponed wedding a refund of your deposit (less expenses) and monies shall be made."


What happens if myself and/or second photographer/videographer are unable to attend as a direct result of the coronavirus infection (COVID-19)?


As per Leslie Choucard Photography & Videography contract terms:


“LIMIT OF LIABILITY: If the photographer(s) and/or videographer(s) are too ill, become injured or physically cannot supply the wedding services specified above, Leslie Choucard Photography & Videography reserves the right to appoint another photographer(s) and/or videographer(s) to attend on their behalf to undertake the agreed services. If back up photographers and/or videographers are unavailable and a replacement cannot be found then liability is limited to a refund of any payments received.”


That being said I am part of a network of brilliant and experienced fellow photographers/videographers who shoot in our style and if one of us were unable to be there I would carefully brief a trusted colleague to shoot alongside the rest of my usual team. I would still manage everything pre and post wedding as usual and deliver your photos/videos with my editing style. Your overall service would not be impacted and you will not be left without a photographer/videographer on your big day. 

What happens if you decide to postpone your wedding due to the coronavirus infection (COVID-19) affecting your wedding day?

As a small business I have a contract in place to protect me and my family against these difficult circumstances, to ensure we are able to survive and keep a roof over our heads. As per my contract terms, the full balance is still due 30 days before the original wedding date. However, in the spirit of these challenging times, I am of course happy to postpone your wedding booking to any other available future date before the start of the the new tax year (6th April 2021) at no additional cost and maintaining my 2020 prices

If you wish to move the wedding after April 2021 there would be a small increase in price in accordance with inflation and the higher daily rate charged by my staff (assistant photographers/videographers) and suppliers (album company, business software etc) in 2021. The exact increase will depend on the collection(s) you have booked.

What happens if I am not free on the new date you have selected? 


If you have decided to postpone your wedding, I will do everything I can to work closely with you and your other suppliers to find a free date that suits. If you do decide on a date that I am not available for please do not worry. You will not be left without a photographer(s) and/or videographer. I will apply the same conditions as the above clause regarding not being able to attend. 

I completely understand how stressful and confusing this time may be for you, but I hope this has been helpful. I'm staying positive that this will all be over soon, everything will be back to normal and I'm very much looking forward to capturing your wedding :-)
