These standard Terms & Conditions apply to all orders and bookings made through Our Wild Love Elopements. This company accepts no liability for the content of this website, or for the consequences of any actions taken on the basis of information provided, unless that information is subsequently confirmed in writing.
BOOKING FEE & QUOTES
All quotes from Our Wild Love Elopements are valid for 14 days following the date of email transmission or phone call. A non-refundable Booking Fee must be made to secure you booking date, time & price. This Booking Fee is $600.
Your wedding date will be held for 14 days after booking in order for you to make your Booking Fee payment. If the Booking Fee is not received in full before the end of the 14 day period then your date, time & price will not be secured. Upon payment of the Booking Fee, Our Wild Love Elopements reserves the time and date agreed upon. For this reason Booking Fees are non-refundable in their entirety, for any reason.
Prices not secured with a Booking Fee are subject to rise at any time without notice.
Additional custom orders (reprints, enlargements, albums) must be paid in full at the time of the order. If additional hours are worked at the request of the client, photos & products will not delivered until payment for those products/services are received in full.
Payments made via PayPal attract a 3% surcharge. Payments can also be made via bank deposit or cash.
BOOKINGS & CANCELLATIONS
All bookings can be made up to 24 months in advance
If for any reason you need to change your wedding date or time, Our Wild Love Elopements must be informed immediately in writing of the change of time, date or place of the ceremony.
If the wedding date or time is changed your fix-priced package is transferable to another available date at the same fixed price provided minimum 6 months notice is provided. If less than 6 months notice is supplied, only 50% of your Booking Fee will be carried across to your new date. Your new date will be subject to availability. Our Wild Love Elopements does not guarantee availability should you choose to change your booking date/time.
You may also change your package at any time before your wedding, however the prices may vary from those advertised at the time of booking. Our Wild Love Elopements cannot guarantee availability where the event date is changed.
If you need to postpone your wedding by more than 1 year from the originally selected date then the package price will increase by 5% for each year that the wedding is postponed. Bookings cannot be postponed by more than 2 years.
By signing a contract and paying the Booking Fee, both you and Our Wild Love Elopements enter into an agreement to honour your booking date and time. If you choose to cancel your booking and do not intend to reschedule notice of cancellation must be given in writing, and the Booking Fee will be retained. The client is aware that the photographer and Celebrant are blocking off the particular dates and time in questions, therefor turning away any potential work on that date/time; as such no full refund is permitted.
If cancellation occurs more than one month prior to the booked ceremony date a full or part refund will be issued at the discretion of Our Wild Love Elopements. If cancellation occurs less than one month from the booked ceremony date full fee is payable.
The client agrees to pay the supplier the amount agreed upon in writing (either via email or on paper). The invoice will be itemised outlining products and services provided by the photographer (number of hours included in the package, along with digital files and products provided), and services provided by the Celebrant. Additional hours spent or products supplied at the request of the client will incur additional fees.
The client is aware that travel fees will be invoiced to the client for any distance travelled as part of the event which is outside of the Adelaide CBD, Barossa and McLaren Vale area. Changing the event location after booking does not make you exempt from this fee.
TIMING & LATE POLICY
The Celebrant reserves the right to leave the place of the ceremony 45 minutes after the agreed ceremony start time if both Parties have not arrived or the ceremony cannot proceed for any reason outside the Celebrant's control. In the event this occurs the Parties will liaise with the Celebrant to solemnise the marriage for an extra fee, payable in advance, or, any time waiting after the allowed 45 minutes will be charged at $50 per 30 minutes.
Your photography coverage is based on an hourly rate, with set start and finish times that will be pre-agreed upon in writing. Every wedding is unique with different running times, and your photographer will be there during the agreed upon hours to capture whatever is happening during these times. If you are running late with anything (makeup, cars, meals etc) the photographer will still be working and capturing memories during these times. If by the end of your photography coverage the day is running behind, you have the option of requesting that your photographer stay for additional hours at the pre-nominated half hourly rate of $175/hour, or to leave at the original agreed upon end time, which will result in no additional cost but potential of missing important events within the wedding day. Your photographer will stay up to 15 minutes late before requesting the clients permission to stay, and/or advising them that their coverage has finished.
Your photographer and Celebrant are willing to help you with your schedule, and to advise on timings that will be less likely to cause overtime.
TRAVEL & PARKING/ACCOMMODATION FEES
Travel fees may apply if your wedding is located outside of the Barossa Valley, Adelaide CBD and McLaren Vale regions. Any travel required during your coverage time (eg. between photograph locations) is taken out of the package time. If there is a substantial amount of driving during the day (eg. 90 minutes +) then you can contact us to discuss discounted driving times. This discount must be confirmed in writing before the booking is made.
Parking costs up to $50 are included as part of your package price. If parking exceeds this, you may be charged for the additional cost only. Our Wild Love Elopements staff will not park illegally and only where permission is given.
If a travel fee is required, then this fee will be agreed on before the booking is made and will cover travel costs including, but not limited to; plane trip, fuel, hire car, accommodation costs etc. If special travel arrangements have been made you and you need to postpone or cancel your wedding then the cancellation fee for any travel plans/bookings made will be charged or taken from the original booking fee where applicable.
Full payment in clear funds by direct deposit, via Paypal (incurring a surcharge of 3% of invoice total) or in cash must be received no later than 30 days prior to the day of the ceremony. If full payment has not been made in accordance with these terms then the Celebrant and photographer will not attend the ceremony. The refund of any paid fees is at the discretion of Our Wild Love Elopements.
In the event of adverse weather conditions (including but not limited to heavy rain, hail, strong winds, thunder storms, bush fire, floods or more), it is up to the photographer's and Celebrant's discretion if bad weather persists to determine whether alternative, sheltered and safe locations for the ceremony should be found and/or to wait for more favourable conditions in a safe location. This is to protect not only equipment of the photographer and Celebrant, but also those involved in the ceremony.
The photographer is not responsible for poor weather conditions and fewer shots as a result of this. Weather and time of day will also play a role in the look of your photos, due to changes in lighting conditions.
If the ceremony is to be changed to the alternative venue due to inclement weather you must inform Our Wild Love Elopements personally by telephone by a time nominated previously in writing to ensure the Celebrant and Photographer have sufficient time to travel to the alternative venue.
Occasionally couples will ask for recommendations of other photographers, Celebrants and other vendors for their wedding if we are unavailable, or they are looking for other suppliers. We are happy to do so, but please note that any photographer, Celebrant or other vendor booked separately of Our Wild Love Elopements, Blissful Ceremonies of Adelaide, and Little Car Photography (even if referred by Our Wild Love Elopements, Blissful Ceremonies of Adelaide, and Little Car Photography) will not be affiliated with Our Wild Love Elopements, Blissful Ceremonies of Adelaide, and Little Car Photography. Therefore Our Wild Love Elopements, Blissful Ceremonies of Adelaide, and Little Car Photography will not be responsible or liable for any booking that is made with another vendor, even on recommendation. Please meet with & read through any other vendors work, policies, T&Cs, image processing & delivery processes to be certain you are happy before booking with them.
